The Thuya grounds are lovely. Nice place for a walk and to see the flowers typical to Maine. Easy for all ages to get around. We took my 80 year old parents and they had no problem navigating the grounds.

It is a little hard to find but wellworth the visit. There is a great story, great views, just a beatifuls spot. Free and near Northeast. Make an hour to visit.

This is the place to be if you are an avid gardener like I am. Thuya Garden is always so beautifully in bloom when I visit each September. The dahlias are tall and lush, the Joe Pye weed is taller than any I have seen elsewhere, and hummingbirds will often sit and pose on a branch while I snap away with my camera. In September it is never crowded there--- peaceful and serene is a good description of the place and of the feeling you get when visiting. The variety of blooms is terrific --a colorful and artful display! One of my favorite spots to visit -- I never tire of this beautiful place.

Dramatic climb from the road up to the gardens. Beautiful, well tended grounds. Research library. Access to nearby hiking trails.

All gardeners that visit MDI should NOT miss Thuya Gardens.

Have to climb up to get there, but beautiful views of NE harbor on the way, and beautiful flowers. Ask for a $5. per person donation .
