The Asticou Azalea Garden

Modeled after a classic Japanese garden, the Asticou Azalea Garden explodes each Spring in every imaginable shade of pink, coral, crimson and peach. Stroll its paths and discover quaint stone bridges over a bubbling stream that leads to a placid pool and take in this serene scene.

Thuya Gardens & Thuya Lodge

Named for the site's abundant white cedars (Thuja occidentalis), Thuya Gardens is part of what is known as Asticou Terraces, created by Boston landscape architect Joseph Henry Curtis. An English-style, semi-formal perennial garden, it was adapted for Coastal Maine by Charles Savage. The result is a marvelous surprise of gorgeous, formal flower beds against a backdrop of craggy granite outcrops and alpine woods.
