We had a great lunch followed by a visit to the shops on the grounds including a visit to the Barn where my nieces met Tom, the wood worker supreme.

You only need an extra hour to enjoy Allied Arts, but well worth the hour! There's a cute little restaurant on the property as well.

The guild is located in a residential area off the beaten path and not on a main thoroughfare. Love the architecture, history and overall concept. Nice place to talk and have a conversation with someone. Enjoy the low keyed artist ambience.

What a glorious venue for a party. Dinner dancing and great catered food. The gardens are lovely and the rose walk is special. Well cared for and quiet. A great place to sit relax and reflect. An oasis in a an already stimulating city.

This little shopping area is a slice of heaven. The gardens and buildings are quite a lovely sight. A good place to stroll through a few unique shops. There is a café that is very reasonable and serves delicious food.

This is a beautiful site but there does not seem to be enough activity there to visit it on a regular basis. I would suggest putting in an additional restaraunt or a cafe. However it is a perfect site to host events.

No, they have an adequate parking lot. I've never had a problem finding a spot.
