Chillane Gardens

A formal rose garden, a large English style perennial bed, a potager, and an enclosed geometric herb garden are parts of the landscaped 3.5 acres that surround an early 19th century old stone house. A collection of more than 1,800 hostas (including over 650 varieties) borders the paths that wind under hundreds of native and specimen trees.  An extensive collection of native ferns is nestled among large boulders.  A majestic cast iron eagle, that overlooks the natural pond and a wildflower meadow, is one of the many unique pieces of art located in this garden. Features include a large vegetable garden, as well as a number of interesting structures including a stack wall garden shed, a shade pavilion, a sugar house and a tool shed fashioned after an 18th century smokehouse.
