June at the Gardens was magical for small, intimate weddings. Ceremony for our daughter in the gazebo with waves of the lake splashing below, was memorable. And what a place for wedding photography. You have to reserve the gazebo. Check it out!

A lovely, albeit small formal garden on the shores of Lake Minnetonka. There is a gazebo overlooking the lake which has a great view and which serves my wife and I as a free mini-cabin on the lake, readily accessible from the western suburbs.

Went there to check out the place a friend was hosting a wedding. wonderful venue and the view of the lake was breathe taking. Call the place for details, if looking for a outside place to get married.

Spring, summer and fall, this garden is gorgeous. It's constantly changing with new color, textures and scents as the plants grow, bloom and die back. The garden is designed beautifully with unique plants and plant combinations. A special place for a intimate visit with nature.

Bring you camera, beautiful grounds and right on Lake Minnetonka. Though you can't swim. Gazebo has great views and the gardens are wonderful.

My daughter and I stopped by there on a whim one weekend while driving around Lake Minnetonka. What a pleasant surprise! So quiet and pretty, lots of flowers and LOVE the boat house deck. And so many places to take beautiful pictures.

Mr. Noetenberg would be rolling over in his grave if he knew how commercialized the place has become.

We visited following last year's renovations of the paved garden paths. While the staff were in the midst of spring planting, there was still many spring time flowering plants to enjoy. This is a readily accessible garden featuring a wide range of plants and flowers....More

Docent led tour was a pleasant way to spend an hour. Best if you are a plant geek like me. The gardeners have free rein to use a varied palate of plant material within the constraints of a formal garden design. Free, good free parking.
