  • A bit pricey for what you get. The grounds are small but pretty. They had a sculpture exhibit going on which was really lovely.

The grounds were a bit unkempt and trails were not always clearly marked.

Some people took advantage to wander the grounds; I opted to sip on some drinks in the meanwhile. The ballroom (if that's the right terminology for it) was wonderful - the dance floor was strategically placed in the center, and the tables around it, so everyone could get a view of everything.
