Love the moss garden and the 1920s style house and the Japanese garden with the house just as it was in 1960's.

This place is just amazing, beautiful and unbelievable. Take the ferry to Bainbridge Island, takes 30 minutes, and once you are on the island, the wonders start. Lots of stuff to do, wineries, breweries, water sports, beaches, etc. The jewel though is the Reserve. It's hard to explain the beauty and peace of this place. A must do when you... More

This was my second visit and, as others have previously mentioned, I'm making this an annual visit (when visiting my daughters, who live in Seattle, from Illinois). If you love nature, this is the place for you. You will not want to walk fast through here, you'll want to slowly take it all in. Fallen trees, feeding others on the... More

This was a stunning reserve on Bainbridge Island, a short boat ride from Seattle. At every turn, there was beauty. I have been to many gardens, but this one is outstanding. Don't miss it!

I made my annual visit. It's so beautiful in May. I determined to take a membership this year so that I might visit more frequently and bring guests. Walking is easy and the grounds are just amazing. I'll enjoy watching it in every season.

Great way to spend the day if you're a nature lover. Beautiful views, pastures, woodlands, trails, and a historical home.

You can wile away a couple hours in this serene setting. I enjoyed it so much I had to go back the next day to walk two trails I had missed. The estate sits on a bluff overlooking Agate Pass on the Puget Sound. You can peek into the mansion, enjoy views of the Sound, and shop In the small... More

I love this place! Its beautiful. Take time to meander slowly and take it all in. There are many different styles of gardens at this reserve. The moss garden is unforgettable!
