Visit the Gardens by Appointment

Everyone that you meet knows something you don't. Learn from them and share your experiences.”  Justin Cotillard


 Would you like to visit Distant Hill Gardens

but haven't been able to make it on a day that

we are open to the public?


You have two options to schedule a visit ...

A Private Guided Garden Tour

Whether it's your family or friends visiting from out of town, your garden club, or your school group, there is something at Distant Hill Gardens worth exploring, whatever your interest may be:

  • Viewing our beautiful ornamental gardens.
  • Exploring our many varied wetlands.
  • Learning more about vegetable gardening.
  • Experiencing our diverse collection of native plants in our forests, fields, and wetlands.
  • Investigating our unique geological features.
  • ... and more!

We are happy to accommodate your group OF ANY SIZE

for an approximately two hour guided tour.


 There is a $125 charge for this service.


An Unguided Visit by Appointment

We realize many of you would love to visit us but can't make it on one of our very limited 'Open Garden' weekend days. If you would like to visit Distant Hill Gardens on a day we are not open to the public please Contact Us with a date and time. If Michael is available that day he will confirm the date and you can tour the gardens at your own pace for up to two hours.


Chjarge for a self-guided visit: $10 per adult


 Please Note: All proceeds from these 'Private Tours' and 'Unguided Visits' by appointment go toward our

'Accessible Trail Fund'

to help make the property more accessible to everyone.
