"This world is but a canvas for our imagination."
The Roberts family purchased the land in 2007. It was certified Salmon Safe in 2008. The goal is that the garden resort will draw visitors not just for award-winning wine, elegant coastal cuisine in a casual setting, but also with regionally-renown botanic garden. There are over fifteen acres of themed display gardens with more on the drawing board.
Local artists were commissioned to create over sixty outdoor sculptures commemorating each of the wines and themed gardens. There are signs for a self-guided walking tour for guests to fully enjoy our destination and the creative hands behind its growth.
There is a Backstage Winemaker's Tour offered every Saturday and Sunday at 1pm. Good walking shoes and warm apparel are recommended.

In our quest to become the Butchart Gardens of Washington State we have again expanded our gardens.
Children's Garden This children’s garden includes a musical fence, a lemon cypress maze, hop scotch and tic-tac-toe. We love being a family-friendly destination!
Patriot Garden We broke ground on this garden on 9/11, quietly and with great reflection. It’s a red, white and blue memorial around our nation’s flag, honoring those who have served our country at home and abroad.
Peace Poles We have gathered our Peace Poles into a sphere. We hope you will have the time to reflect there upon their messages. Think the United Colors of Benetton when you think of this glorious experiment.
Hawaiian Tropical Paradise Without the benefit of a volcanic eruption we tripled the size of this stroll through a tropical rain forest complete with a giant tiki and a Technicolor palette.
French Formal Garden This garden style is all about control and containment yet there is a passionate kiss sculpture right in the middle. Wondering about the giant metal topiary planters? They are old crab cookers from our friends at Nelson Cannery in Tokeland.
English Cottage Garden Always the most fun to design, this garden is a boisterous explosion of pastels. One of the challenges of garden design is the ever changing canvas. Only in studying the great English gardeners did we find that change is accepted and that a young garden is less than a hundred years old!
We hope you will be patient and drink in the magic as we make history.
