2015 Certificate of Excellence Winner

We would like to thank all of our past visitors who took the time to complete a review on TripAdvisor

Gibbs Gardens, 220 acres of artistically landscaped gardens, located in the rolling hills of North Georgia, today announced that it has received a TripAdvisor® Certificate of Excellence award. Now in its fifth year, the award celebrates excellence in hospitality and is given only to establishments that consistently achieve great traveler reviews on TripAdvisor. Certificate of Excellence winners include accommodations, eateries and attractions located all over the world that have continually delivered a superior customer experience.

When selecting Certificate of Excellence winners, TripAdvisor uses a proprietary algorithm to determine the honorees that takes into account the quality, quantity and recency of reviews and opinions submitted by travelers on TripAdvisor over a 12-month period as well as business’s tenure and ranking on the Popularity Index on the site. To qualify, a business must maintain an overall TripAdvisor bubble rating of at least four out of five, have a minimum number of reviews and must have been listed on TripAdvisor for at least 12 months.

“Winning the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence is a true source of pride for the entire team at Gibbs Gardens and we would like to thank all of our past visitors who took the time to complete a review on TripAdvisor,” said Jim Gibbs, Owner and President of Gibbs Gardens. “There is no greater seal of approval than being recognized by one’s customers. With the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence based on customer reviews, the accolade is a remarkable vote of confidence to our business and our continued commitment to excellence.”

"TripAdvisor is pleased to honor exceptional hospitality businesses that have received consistent praise and recognition by travelers on the site,” said Marc Charron, President, TripAdvisor for Business. “By putting a spotlight on businesses that are focused on delivering great service to customers, TripAdvisor not only helps drive increasing hospitality standards around the world, it also gives businesses both large and small the ability to shine and stand out from the competition.”

Five ponds reflect the beauty of hardy and tropical waterlily blooms from May through November. A replica of Claude Monet’s Bridge in Monet’s Garden outside of Paris is veiled with white and lilac wisteria blooms.
  • The Japanese Gardens, covering more than 40 acres with seven spring-fed ponds with islands, bridges, massive boulders and rocks, are the largest in the nation. Enter the Hill and Pond Stroll Garden, “Tsukiyama,” through the Torii Gate and stroll along gentle paths, past pagodas, 40 handcrafted Japanese lanterns and decades old shrubs artistically sculpted through the Japanese art of bonsai.
