About The Gardens

Callaway Resort & Gardens is a truly unique destination that families, couples, and friends have enjoyed together for decades. It all started in 1952 with a family and their desire to share their special retreat with the public. It was just too beautiful for only one family to enjoy. The Callaways, their generous spirit, and their love of nature have come together in this spectacular 2,500-acre attraction, which keeps visitors coming back year after year.

 


Mission & Vision

Callaway Resort & Gardens, a man-made landscape in a unique natural setting, was conceived and created by Cason J. Callaway and his wife, Virginia Hand Callaway.
