My husband and I love the gardens. We visited with my sister’s family on our first trip to the area to look at the Wiscasset Motor Lodge prior to purchasing it. We fell in love with the botanical gardens and we fell in love with the lodge. In the gardens there are miles of lovely trails, a view of the river, and waterfalls. It’s definitely worth repeat visits and we knew we’d be buying an annual membership. So it’s not surprising to hear all the accolades the gardens receive.
