I visited the Asticou Azalea Garden twice two months ago(June, 2016)when I was staying at the nearby Asticou Inn. I agree completely with prior reviewers that this is a most relaxing place to meander through at whatever pace you prefer. There is no formal admission charge but I happily left a donation to help defray the costs of maintaining the... More

Right across form the Asticou, a gem of a Japanese garden. Not very large but very well done. Nice place for a stroll or a few minutes of quiet reflection.

Take a quiet walk in along the paths of shrubs and small trees. Amaze at the wonder of the sand and rock isles.Feast in the peaceful tranquil so close to the road.

We stopped by on our way to Northeast Harbor. Plan on spending a peaceful 30-60 minutes here, especially if you love gardens. I'm sure it's even more beautiful in spring when the flowers are in bloom. This is on a main road but not very visited, so you will enjoy some quiet time here. Free admission.

We visit yearly and cannot get enough inspiration from this place! A quiet retreat from the Acadia traffic, which you can walk/tour at your own pace. Bring your camera and take some time to relax!

Enjoy nature and relax in a calm beautiful garden. We visited in Summer but it must be more beautiful during Spring. Very well kept.

This garden was very small, but we enjoyed a short stroll through it on a nice afternoon after having had lunch across the street.Everything was very clean and well-kept. This is the type of place that I would stop in again only if I happened to be in the area.........not as a destination.

Acadia National Park can be rather busy in August, so we were happy to find a welcome respite from the crowds at these nearby well-maintained Japanese-inspired gardens. The azaleas were no longer in bloom, but there was still plenty to see while there. We must have been among the first there the day we visited, as it appeared that the... More

Quiet, uncrowded, beautiful gardens to enjoy. The walkways have a pleasant view awaiting you around every turn. We have stopped here several times. I never tire of the lovely grounds.
