Location + Surroundings

Located in Western Maine, this eco-friendly retreat center provides guests with an authentic four-season environment. Found in the Appalachian Mountains, it is in an ideal location adjacent to 1,300+ acres of Nature Conservancy forestland and near the pristine slopes of Pleasant Mountain, a local hiking gem. This alone creates an impeccably tranquil and authentic green retreat. Nestled in the pristine forestland, guests will be surrounded by the sounds of a nearby spring-fed mountain brook, offering dipping pools and hiking trails along its edge. It is truly a magical sampling of Maine's mountains and lakes region habitat. The beauty of this property is that it is both very remote and rural, yet close enough to nearby villages and towns where guests can pick up all their supplies.
