Surprise to find border garden tuck on top of mountain. Nicely done with perennials & annual. There is a hiking trail from the base of the mountain to the garden.

I must see if you are in the area. Great views and beautiful gardens. Visited in early September 2016. Beautiful views of NE Harbor as well. Truly breathtaking

Love this place. It' immaculate, a bit like going to the Master gold course. It's very peaceful (or it should be anyway), a nice place to to relax, or look at the different flowers if that's your thing.

We enjoyed Thuya, though less than we expected. And we were surprised that the only direction offered online for parking (on the main road) required a long, steep climb with awkward footing and big puddles. Suspecting that there must be vehicle access, we forged on...More

These gardens and lodge are absolutely worth the walk (or drive) up the hill. Peaceful, colorful, lots of hummingbirds and butterflies. Go to meditate or learn about the wide variety of flowers. Walk the trails through the woods. Relax.

I think it is Thuya Lodge at the Thuya Gardens, you should be able to google it and find images. The gardens are across the street from the Asticou Inn in Northeast Harbour.
