My fiancé and I got our engagement pictures done here, and they are breathtaking. This is such a beautiful place to visit! They also offer cheese and crackers here as well as wine.

This arboretum is breathtaking. The variety of trees,annuals, perennials,bonsai,ornamental vegetables and kitchen gardens are amazing. You can walk the grounds at your leisure of just sit and enjoy the views. Allow about 2 hours to enjoy all of the sights. The swans in the lake are a nice addition to the location. A great place for a wedding or outdoor... More

The arboretum and gardens are a trust from the Schedel Family. After their passing the gardens and arboretum became available to the public. Their home is available to the public as are the gardens. The garden is beautiful in all seasons. There are a wide variety of annuals, perennials and trees. Including the Yoshino Cherry Trees which are from cuttings... More

Beautiful grounds that are so peaceful. The swans are so tame they are not bothered by you being there. Bring a bottle of cool water with you as on a hot day you may need some water. After wards we went to the Amish Country diner for lunch not far away. Takes about an hour to see. Work it in... More

This is a nice little find not too fa from the city. The area is very well maintained, and the gardens are quite picturesque with areas of water dotted about the acreage. The bonsai garden display was very impressive, and a pleasure to walk through. I was particularly drawn to the upper garden, which boasts over a hundred varieties of... More

Bonsai lovers will love Schedel's large Bonsai Exhibit, displayed in intricate wood pergolas. Perfect for strolling through and blends in with the beautiful gardens. Schedel's is such a hidden gem to visit. It's not too huge to stroll through. Everything is so manicured and well maintained that you want to stop and enjoy each feature...whether it's the Japanese Garden, the... More

Our group arranged a tour of the lovely home which contains many beautiful jade pieces. We then enjoyed a catered box lunch. Following lunch, we strolled through the lovely gardens, which are beautiful throughout the year. The Japanese Garden is probably my favorite. If you are looking for a place in which you can commune with nature, this is definitely... More
