Hello from Carol & Steve Barden at Carol's Garden Inn - Bed and Breakfast! You'll be glad you had your very special day in a private park like setting of Carol’s Garden Inn. Your guests can relax and enjoy the surrounding gardens. You can have the ceremony in front of the pond or the grape arbor or choose the shade of one of the big trees.
