Northeast-Harbor is a community on Mount Desert Island, off the coast of Maine, which is widely known as the home of Acadia National Park. Northeast Harbor is located on the southern end of Mount Desert Island at the entrance to Somes Sound, on what is often referred to as the "quiet side" of the island. Famous for its summertime residents and its' protected harbor full of exclusive yachts and sailboats, Northeast Harbor has fine restaurants and one-of-a-kind boutiques. Not to be missed while visiting Northeast Harbor are the Asticou Azalea Gardens and Thuya Gardens. The Asticou Azalea Garden is a peaceful oasis with several beautiful spots for sitting and quiet reflection. The Thuya Garden features perennial gardens and sculpted shrubbery with a touch of Asian ambiance. There are two ways to reach the Thuya Garden; one is by driving and the other is by hiking up the front of the granite cliffs that provide spectacular panoramic views of Northeast Harbor. Nearby Acadia National Park is full of recreational opportunities such as hiking and biking, kayaking, boating, whale watching and more. And, the nearby coastal cities of Bar Harbor, Ellsworth, Bangor and Blue Hill offer a wonderful blend of museums, art galleries, nightly entertainment, shopping and restaurants.
