"One of the hidden gems of the area, Innisfree is recognized as one of the “world’s ten best gardens.” Landscape architect Lester Collins created this Japanese “cup” or “bowl” garden with his clients, Walter Beck and Marion Burt Beck. This iconic garden merges Modern and Romantic ideas within the Chinese and Japanese principles in landscape design, creating a “distinctly American stroll garden.”
"A one mile walk around the lake and hundreds of exotic flora and fauna to see and always fun to find a frog or turtle on the side ready to take the plunge."
"From the moment I discovered this magical garden I was smitten. It’s the most peaceful place designed with Chinese and Japanese garden design principles — truly a treasure."
