Gardens and Grounds

Mountain Light is graced with many beautiful gardens. As you step through the entry gate you feel you are stepping into another world, a world where time and daily concerns have less meaning. The entry path, bordered by flower gardens, will take you past the Balihouse to your right, then the Treehouse and finally the Hermitage, all sitting along the river. To your left you will see the Banana Patch through our bamboo grove. As you wander about the property you will find the grotto of the Divine Feminine, The ZenTao, the St. Francis garden, our Celtic stone circle / Native American medicine wheel and our main flower garden adjacent to the lodge.

Stepping through the gate and bamboo wall behind the lodge, you enter our Japanese garden, a shaded, cool green world of flowing water, moss covered rocks, ferns, vines and a sense of utter peace and timelessness. The simple stone path is laid out in such a way as to slow you down, cause you to pause and to notice the little things which are often missed when we move to fast. The whole garden was built as a metaphor for life's journey. There are many inner secrets hidden here for those who take the time to find them.
