The Gardens at Serenity Gardens Bed and Breakfast
The Gardens at Serenity Garden Bed and Breakfast are a nature lover's paradise. In the middle of the lush interior yard stands a fifty foot Pepper Tree, flanked by two giant Weeping Willows. These magnificent trees provide cool shade during the warm summer months and furnish excellent surroundings for the nests of red squirrels and many birds. Homemade birdhouses and bird feeders can be spotted throughout the lovely garden that is home to finches, jays, mockingbirds, sparrows, woodpeckers, and hummingbirds. The Gardens at Serenity Gardens has earned certification as a Wildlife Habitat by the National Wildlife Federation. Conscientious planning went into preparing this mini-refuge where animals and birds can find food, water, shelter and places to raise their young.
Upon entering The Gardens at Serenity Gardens' private patio, made of stones from a local quarry near Mariposa, one hears the relaxing gurgle of water falling in the three tier fountain. This small garden hosts a variety of plants from common petunias, pansies, and cyclamen to the more vibrant gladiolas, Asian lilies and colorful roses. The Gardens at Serenity Gardens guests may enjoy breakfast served in the gracious dining room or on the restful patio. Guests are also welcome to bring in their own lunch and dinner. People can play games or cards on the teak patio table or sip a beverage of their choice in this enchanting garden for a leisurely evening under the stars.
Wander through the gates and down the path of The Gardens at Serenity Gardens towards the rustic cabin in the center of the larger flower garden. A sun porch with umbrella table and rockers provides a spot where one can sit and enjoy the natural surroundings. A pomegranate tree to the side of the structure provides fruit from which jelly is made for the breakfast table. Twice a year in June and August, figs can be picked and eaten right off the fig tree which stands just in front of the cabin.
No stay is complete when exploring The Gardens at Serenity Gardens without a visit to the home grown and organic fruits and vegetable gardens where our twenty-five free range hens lay brown and blue eggs. Peach, nectarine, apricot and apple trees surround raised beds growing spinach, chard, kale, onions, artichokes, beets, potatoes, and tomatoes. Most of this fresh produce is utilized to making delicious guest breakfasts served every morning.
