Contributed by Mount Desert Island Historical Society


A photograph of the lower garden on the lawn of the Asticou Inn, overlooking Northeast Harbor. For many years it was customary on nice August afternoons to hold tea parties in the garden for guests. As part of their room and board, under the American Plan, guests received three meals and other daily refreshments, as provided.

This photograph was taken by Charles K. Savage, owner and manager of the Asticou Inn from 1922 to 1964.
