  • The scenery is beautiful. The gardens are clean with great upkeep. So many beautiful colors and the pumpkin houses are adorable. I especially enjoyed the herb garden. The thyme and rosemary scents made me hungry. :-) I also noticed all kinds of work going on as they updated garden areas and strung lights to prepare for Christmas displays. It makes me want to come back to visit one day soon, and I truly appreciate the military discount. Oh and it's a great way to get steps in.
  • Absolutely always love beautiful Cheekwood, anytime of year. Walk the grounds, tour the home, see the trains, pumpkin cottages, or tulips. I will be glad when the new construction is done, we've missed out on the nature trails twice now. I will be really excited when it is finished. Grab your picnic basket, or something at the cafe.
