With the rustic look of a log home and the charm of a country garden, not to mention a beautiful view of Lake Noquebay, you’ll enjoy walking this property and it will be worth the drive. This garden tour will include Julie’s charming garden shed surrounded by an abundance of perennials and annuals. She loves to repurpose items to use in her gardens. Come see the many surprises! Julie’s favorite is an old row boat turned into a very unique focal point in her yard. Containers will be overflowing with an assortment of beautiful flowers and many hostas are featured throughout the gardens. Please park on the road only.
