Travel + Leisure Magazine Highlight

By | Events | No Comments

snugcollageWe are pretty excited to read the new highlight on Snug Harbor Farm in the August 2015 issue of Travel + Leisure Magazine (excerpt below).

“Take Tony Elliott. His Snug Harbor Farm nursery in Kennebunk is known by serious gardeners and design devotees, but not because he has ever advertised. Snug Harbor is unique partly because it stays open year-round, but mostly because Elliott grows nearly all of his own plants—notably topiary and, more recently, succulents.

Elliott did what one does in Maine: start small and keep moving rocks, actual and virtual, out of the way. Over the course of 25 years, he restored a broken-down 185os farmhouse and various sheds spread over three acres on Western Avenue, the main road that leads from Kennebunk into Kennebunkport. Snug Harbor is now a stylish but unfussy campus, a place where you can easily lose two hours wandering from the inviting shop to one immaculate greenhouse after the other.

Of course, it helps that Elliott is a magnetic character: you see a crowd, and his silver hair is bound to be at the center of it. “Maine is harsh,” he told me. “Brutal winters and luscious summers. But there’s a raw beauty, an honesty to it…and to the people.” Elliott knows about Mainers’ honesty—they are quick to remind him that, despite his years in Kennebunk be’s still a flatlander, someone “from away.” (In his case, the Midwest.) It’s a label he has come to accept. “You will never be part of the family,” he says. ” But their loyalty is immense.”
