Organize Your Visit

Would you like to visit Allen’s garden home on the Arkansas River with your group? 

Private Group Tours of the Garden Home Retreat at Moss Mountain Farm allow your group of 40 or more to visit Allen’s main residence, guest cottage, vegetable garden and surrounding ornamental gardens with more flexibility and solitude.  Tours can be scheduled for the afternoon or evening hours, and conclude with a lunch or dinner, respectively.  Pricing is set at 40 minimum, see below for options.

We invite you to spend a leisurely afternoon or evening at the Garden Home Retreat enjoying the company of friends and good food in this gorgeous setting.

 
For groups of 39 or fewer guests:
Are you bringing a group less than 40?  Join one of our public, pre-scheduled Lunch Tours, typically on a spring or fall Thursday or Friday.  With this option, each guest may purchase a reservation individually or reservations may be purchased together via our website here or by calling 501-519-5793. 
 
Group organizers always have the option of scheduling a private group tour that includes less than 40 individuals, but our pricing level will have to remain in place for a minimum commitment level for 40.  Please call for details.
 

For groups of 40 or more guests:

We are happy to schedule throughout the year a private Tour and Meal for groups of 40 or more.  Groups over 40 also have the unique opportunity to schedule an evening dinner and tour, which carries the special delight of our golden hour sunset.  Please call our venue manager for reservations:  501-519-5793 or write gardenhome@pallensmith.com to save your important date.
