My final garden visit in the Hudson River Valley on June 13th, prompted by Tim Richardson’s prominently feature on Innisfree Garden in his book Great Gardens of America, encompassed most of my day because there was so much to explore.
Located in the quiet community of Millbrook, New York, and based around the 40-acre lake framed by wooded hills and rocky cliffs, the gardens at Innisfree showcases stone walls and staircases and dramatic water features, which provide a sense of movement and tranquility.
Artist, Walter Beck and his wife, Marion, commissioned landscape designer Lester Collins to collaborate with them on designing this unique combination of traditional Asian garden design and American modernism.
Finding Innisfree, a garden of quiet beauty, serenity, and contemplation, I concluded my visit with a late lunch overlooking a peaceful lake.
