Award-winning gardens and the ruins of a unique Georgian mansion combine to provide an experience unlike anything else in the Berkshires. The Ashintully experience is divided into two distinct adventures, each reflective of the very different personalities that created them. One involves the flowing gardens of Ashintully Farm. These unique gardens were sculpted from the landscape over three decades by the composer John McLennan. Each garden beautifully stands on its own, supporting a theme, and every path feels like a bridge to the next movement. Without a doubt you will be mesmerized by the charm of Ashintully Gardens. The second adventure lies above Ashintully Farm, on the brow of the hill. There stand the ruins of the Marble Palace.
