Some Of The Most Enchanting Gardens In the World Are Right Here In Ohio

Nestled in the rolling hills of Gambier, Oh you’ll find one of our state’s most beautiful treasures.

The Schnormeier Gardens are one of Ohio’s best-kept secrets. The gardens were started by Ted and Ann Schnormeier in 1996 and have grown to include 50 acres of manicured lawns, lakes, waterfalls, and sculptures.

At the center of it all is a beautiful, Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired home, which was completed in 1994. Throughout the rest of the property, you’ll find a Japanese teahouse, a garden house, a Chinese pavilion, and even an arched bridge.

The gardens are only open to the public during the month of June and visits will be reservation only. The gardens are very popular and with the limited number of available tickets (due to COVID-19 safety) you’ll need to make reservations early. Visitors can come and explore for themselves Thursday-Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. You’ll find them at 8701 Laymon Rd, Gambier, OH 43022.
