About Us ...

Avalon gardens nursery

We are one in the same, my nursery and I. I farm it, nurture it and maintain over 500 varieties of perennials and shrubs.
The plants are grown in sustainable conditions, with natural fertilizers and fungicides.
Pests are eliminated only when absolutely necessary and with organics.



I left my career at the Cleveland Clinic in 1997 to start this business.
I was a clinical laboratory specialist in Cytogenetics, however, I was also the mother of a 5 year old and 3 year old triplets. I needed to follow my passion, taking my kids and biological knowledge out in the field…literally!  
On January 1st, 1998 Avalon Gardens Inn and Nursery was born.

The farm/nursery/bed and breakfast has been a place to raise my kids, shelter my elderly mother and meet the most amazing customers and fellow green industry workers.




Listen, This is the most amazing place I have ever stayed. Everything was as presented and exceeded my expectations. The location was tranquil, picture perfect and was the most luxurious B and B that I have ever had the opportunity to enjoy. Breakfast was over the moon with every thing presented with class and creativity. It was a short but truly a delightful stay.

Mary is the perfect host! Communication was so easy. She was working in her gardens when we arrived. The accommodations were even better than the description. The Fowlers Mill area is beautiful and peaceful. Breakfast was exceptional and more food and variety than we could eat. We look forward to staying there again.

Mary’s place is amazing. The historic house is super clean and charming. I can’t describe how beautiful the flower garden/shop is, you have to see it to believe it. Mary was available, either in person or text, at any time when we have questions. And the lest, but not least, the breakfast was plenty and delicious. I certainly will use Mary’s hospitality again, whenever I’m in the area.

We had a very relaxing and comfortable stay. Mary was quick to respond, very kind, and made a fantastic spread for breakfast. Extra touches like the the fresh flowers in all the rooms made us feel very welcome. The setting was lovely. I would definitely stay again if in the area!
