Gardens & Grounds

Originally designed by the firm of Olmsted, Olmsted and Eliot of New York City, the gardens and grounds remain beautiful year round. Each year our professional landscape team fashion lush gardens that compliment the manicured lawns, winding paths, and surrounding forest.

Cairnwood’s enclosed side garden, with its formal plantings and sunset views, features a charming reflecting pool. This outdoor room provides the perfect setting for an intimate ceremony or cocktail party at dusk. The sweeping south terrace with commanding views of the Bryn Athyn Historic District can accommodate up to 200 guests for elegant dining under the stars or within a customized tent.
