Asticou is lovely Japanese style garden well worth the visit. It is a gentle walk with plenty of spots to sit and enjoy the lovely specimens.

although the gardens were beautiful and very well maintained I wish I had been there when the Azaleas were in bloom. I can just imagine the natural beauty and color saturation at that time. I really enjoyed strolling around this lovely garden. I recommend that the entrance sign should be better marked as it is easily missed if you don't... More

This is best visited in the spring, as we usually do; but there are other plantings and just walking the paths though the varied greenery on a summer day is worth the stop. This is all perfectly designed and maintained. Restful!

My husband and I loved visiting the Asticou Azalea Garden. It is small and took only 30 minutes to walk around. The Azalea's were not in bloom, but many other flowers were and it was beautiful. The gardens are very well maintained and remind us of the Japanese gardens we visited in Japan, including a sand "rock" garden. A lovely... More

I loved the welcoming porch and staff. This great Inn and gardens felt like a lost era of sweet decadence, connected with the gorgeous sea and forested hills of Acadia.

Just stumbled upon the gardens driving around. No fee but ask for donation. Ponds, stream and some beautiful plants and flowers.

I went on a sunny day with blue skies. The gardens are very pretty, with winding paths and a Japanese feel. I loved them. I hear it is even prettier in the fall. I recommend a short walk through the gardens.

This is a really beautiful garden that is a little difficult to find. It could use a more prominent sign, but maybe that's how it stays uncrowded? I drove right by the entrance and was much more observant after a u-turn got me back in front of the garden. It was just drizzling when I arrived, but it soon became... More

We stumbled upon this on our travels around the peninsula. It was quiet, and amazingly maintained. There was no admission fee, just a donation box.
