At Holly Hill Bed & Breakfast we love to garden. You’ll find a wide variety of herbs, fruits, vegetables, flowers and trees. It is with great pleasure that we serve gourmet meals made with our own produce whenever possible.

Take an educational garden tour, or wander the grounds and trails enjoying the wonderful gifts of nature by yourself. These gardens have attracted international visitors for over 30 years, including travelers from China, Africa, Australia and England. At one time over 400 species of native plants, herbs and perennials were identified on Holly Hill. Many of our garden plants are indigenous to the Piney Woods region but the collection of tropical plants is also fun and interesting. As a result of lush plant life, wildlife is in abundance. At any given time you may see many species of birds, butterflies and much more.

Unfortunately much was lost during a tornado in the fall of 2009. Most of what was shade gardens is now transforming into lush and beautiful sun beds. The restored gardens will include a Spring Walk, Children’s Garden, Memorial Garden and a Red Autumn Walk. Follow our blog as we write about building back the beauty for which Holly Hill is known.

We invite you to browse the index of Herbs and Other Plants. This is a “then and now” list of what grows at Holly Hill. Come relax and get lost in nature at Holly Hill Homestead Bed and Breakfast.
