Because of the beauty of our natural surroundings here, WBRE- TV dubbed us as  "Luzerne County's best kept secret"!

Our garden getaway is located in a picturesque country setting and is the perfect place to clear your mind, relax and enjoy nature as you wander through five acres of naturalized areas and beautiful borders. We offer garden tours by appointment.

Our facilities are a perfect location for mind, body and spirit rejuvenation.  There are many scenic locations which make it popular for special occasion photos. We also operate the Cottage at Crabtree Gardens, which is our English inspired guest house (B&B), where we can accommodate up to 5 guests in three bedrooms. A freshly prepared breakfast is included with each overnight stay.

In addition to our regularly scheduled seasonal gardening workshops, we would be pleased to put together a
special private garden workshop for your small group as a team building event.

We also have a yoga studio The Lil Yoga Barn on site and can arrange special group classes for your event.
Consider hosting your own private yoga retreat for a few friends or gather them for a stress relieving birthday party filled with yoga, meditation and other activities that bring balance and harmony to your life. 

We offer seasonal Women's Retreats and we can arrange a customized getaway for a small group. Garden-to-order retreat packages filled with specific garden related workshops can be arranged with topics of interest that you choose.

 Blissful Therapeutics, located inside the Cottage offers In-house massages and other papering treatments in a European chalet style room adorned with a crystal chandelier
. Consider getting a temporary henna design applied to your arms or legs by our talented artist, Kristy Lash who operates Henna or No? by appointment.

Our gardens are also the perfect place to arrange an artist retreat where you can create your masterpiece in an uninterrupted solace.  After all, WBRE-TV considers us Luzerne County's Best Kept Secret!

Our gardens provide a haven for learning about an all natural, chemical-free way to naturalize your property in order to provide a bounty of food, beauty and resources with which to share with others. The low-maintenance techniques will work for any age gardener. We work along with nature and find it very pleasant and stress free.
