    We walked up from the lower car park and whilst it was 200 steps were not disappointed at the views we glimpsed on the way. Lovely gardens and house. Well worth the visit.  more »

    A lovely garden, in a quieter part of Mt Desert Island, well-tended, contemplative, and free (though donations are accepted). Drive up via the entrance, or park by the main road and take a short hike up.
