“I don’t think we ever saw such a nice garden with waterfalls and ponds except at public botanical parks and gardens; it was just amazing. And the wildlife was great, too – bald eagles nearby, birds, ducks and turtles. The kids just loved it – especially the tame duck. I would recommend this to anyone who just needs to unwind.” – Craig and Natasha Powers, Moscow, Russia
