This place is incredible. It's very well-maintained and serene. If you visit, try to remember that the serenity of nature is like a church to many people. Try to be respectful and quiet! There was a group of women here when we were who were...More

We visited the Reserve while on a day trip from Seattle. The Reserve is a picturesque estate, different landscapes and gardens abound. I love the idea that there are no signs along the trails and gardens; the map is accurate and all that is necessary....More

A great place to take an hour long walk. Uncrowded and let's hope it stays that way, although there are rumors that new management wants to turn it into mega destination like Butchart Gardens on Vancouver Island (which has a huge parking lot, buses etc.)
