Beautiful property! Great way to spend an afternoon. Would like to have been able to see the inside of the house but that is not part of the tour

Beautiful garden that you can walk in a couple hours! Very peaceful. Lovely flowers even for late summer. Lots of shade during the hot summer days. Highly recommend!

Just beautiful!!. Layout of Gardens was well thought out and the whole. experience had a very "natural" feel. Hope to return in a different season to see contrasts.

It was a rainy day and absolutely beautiful! (If needed they provide umbrellas. )There are many different gardens containing the mundane to the exotic. It is clear that there is a lot of work put into the gardens, the fields, the ponds, the paths...the acres of paradise. If I lived in this area I would have a membership and go in all seasons. Even the bathrooms had bouquets of flowers- different for the men and women's rooms.

I especially liked the shade gardens. I have shade gardens and sometimes am at a loss how to make them beautiful. There were some gardens that were highly manicured and others that were "natural" AND the lotus in full bloom covering the pond. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!

Our friends, Cindy and Arash, introduced this hidden to us. My wife remarked, "How have I lived in this area for 23 years and never been here?!" It's magnificent. It's so relaxing to walk around and look at the beautiful grounds with flowers, trees, plants, etc. There are plenty of spots to sit and contemplate the beauty. They even have a garden that produces food for employees and local pantries for those in need. Admission is reasonable as you can spend as long as you wish. We're going to by an annual pass, so we can pop in for picnics and for recharging our batteries after work.

Chanticleer is a lovely place to visit! The admission is reasonably priced and there are so many interesting things to see there. The gardens are relatively small and easy to navigate in an hour or two.

This is a magical place with astoundingly creative and beautiful gardens and structures: one of the most stunning pleasure gardens I have ever visited!

Not only beautiful and unusual, but also fun! Grounds managers have a sense of humor that can be found in hardscape and planting displays. A treat for both the knowledgeable and casual garden-lover. Banana trees in Philadelphia that, according to staff, survive outdoors year-round! Picnics, strolls, gardening ideas, family outing, read a book, take a date - just go and enjoy!

Chanticleer is a sparkling gem! The gardens are beautiful and the walk through the property is delightful. You can spend anywhere from an hour to 3 exploring and enjoying the multitude of plantings.

Exquisite pleasure garden. Every element is curated with whimsy and deep horticultural knowledge. Very reasonable admission. Convenient and gorgeous restrooms. Comfy seating is abundant; everything for the guests enjoyment is perfect.I’ve been to Kew, Kuekenhof and many other elaborate gardens but Chanticleer is my favorite. The creativity in plant selection and ornament blows my mind. We got there when it opened and stayed till it closed for the evening. Loved every minute.
No food or drink sold onsite. We brought lunch and picnicked. They only sell a couple of books and water bottle, etc. Wish they had more merch; like a hat and t-shirt.
They take parking reservations during busy times.
