“Annville Inn’s Botanical Garden is unique. Almost all B&B’s have beautiful gardens and lawns. What sets Annville Inn apart is this is an extensive botanical garden, tended for over 16 years with great care by four gardeners and all done solely for the pleasure of our guests. Frankly, as serious gardeners with professional hort backgrounds, the gardens at Annville Inn are a joy for us to be in every day as well.” —Tammy H., our long reigning Head Gardener
Annville Gardens was created by your Innkeeper’s husband, Craig, who has been a lifelong gardener; was Executive Director of the world famous Hershey Gardens where he ushered in a period of renewal and expansion during his tenure; and was deeply involved as a Senior Manager at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian in Washington, DC. While there, he worked on the garden design still prominent at the museum’s entrance including the waterway, native plantings and “Grandfather Rocks.” He also has been a consulting rosarian for other public rose gardens in Pennsylvania, was a featured speaker for the American Rose Society, and was a presenter at a national meeting of America in Bloom.
