The El Galeon is a full size replica of a Spanish galleon, the type used during the 16th Century. The Nuestra Senora de Atocha, as well as the Nuestra Senora de Maravilla were 16th century galleons lost in hurricanes off the Florida keys, and famously rediscovered laden with emeralds and gold in recent years.

Notes From Your Innkeeper
We have been in the business of accommodating Wedding Parties here at the Country Garden Inn for nearly three decades. We offer a quiet and idyllic setting, in which you and your family can relax in the comfort of this home away from home. The grounds are abundant with wildlife, flowers and shrubs, with well frequented bird houses and baths, and a beautiful fountain centers the property. Come make your memories happen here at the Country Garden Inn & Spa.
The Inn itself has been in continuous operation since 1921. Started as a farm at the turn of the twentieth century, hard times dictated the need for a change of operation. The farm was plowed under retaining the Victorian Farm House, Barn, Carriage House and charm, all of which still exist today. A community of cottages was built in the 1920’s, all since having been replaced by more modern cottages and suites, containing fireplaces, jacuzzi’s and more.
