Sweet, Sunny, Summer Days

Warm, verdant summer is here with long days and abundant sunshine. The myriads of plants, shrubs, and trees at Hills & Dales Estate cannot help but bloom and grow! Classic aromas of magnolia and gardenia waft through the air, making benches and seats in shady spots even more welcoming. Guided tours of the Callaways’ lovely historic home are conducted in cooled air and with genuine hospitality. The mood is relaxed, languid, and very southern, but it won’t last forever. Visit us soon and experience a day of the season’s easy living.
