Wandering Tree Estate


Discover the beauty of Wandering Tree Estate. Home to renowned artist and designer of model railroads and garden railways, Elaine Silets, the estate is only open by invitation for private tour. Learn all about the estate, gardens, and rail museum during our talk by the “Train Lady” whose work has been featured in many places including Christmas windows at Tiffany & Co. After, explore the multi-acre gardens and grounds on your own, and experience the Shabui Garden Railway; a Japanese water and stroll garden; The Gloree and Tryumphant Garden Railway, and an amazing Model Train Museum. Next, we will travel to Long Grove for High Tea with Gerri - to indulge in a delicious four-course high tea menu.
