We have discovered since we opened in 1997 that Sewall House Yoga Retreat especially seems to be a good choice for people going through some sort of change in their life, whether it be work-related, relationship or health-related. People also choose us because we are in Maine in a uniquely inviting historic home. Our guests have also shared that the smaller number of attendees feels less like a "university" compared to some of the larger yoga retreats.

Each room is uniquely furnished with antiques and comfortable mattresses on full sized beds. Singles have a private room and couples/friends can share a room with one bed. 6 Private Bedrooms: 5 rooms with antique full size beds and 1 room with a Queen size bed. 4 full bathrooms, 3 shared. 1 room with a private bathroom. Sauna & One person jacuzzi bath. You can use the computer for free at the local library which is nearby. If you have your own computer, we provide wireless internet service for a one time fee.

Sewall House is designed to support positive life changes without forcing you to adhere to a regimented program. All levels of yoga practitioners from beginning to experienced are welcome at this meditation retreat. You can choose to be busy from dawn to dusk or have a more leisurely schedule; we will leave it up to you. All activities are optional; we will help you plan your days as you desire. Choose your arrival and departure days based on your schedule and needs.

We are in the northern part of the state, the southern part of Aroostook County, known for Baxter State Park, Mount Katahdin and surrounding lakes. We are only 30 miles from the CanadaUnited States border. The bordering town in United states is Houlton, Maine (passport required). In Canada the bordering town is Woodstock, New Brunswick which is 92 km west of Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada. You can drive easily from New York City and Boston or Canada.

Northern Maine is not highly populated. Our yoga meditation retreat is located in a town of 700 people with two nearby lakes and Baxter State Park with its mighty Mt Katahdin. There are gift shops nearby, a #1 rated 18 hole golf course, one restaurant named River Cafe which sits on the river, and a few diners but no commercial chain stores or coffee houses. Island Falls is pure small-town New England.
