Retreat location

Sewall House Yoga Retreat is located in an area of Maine that was recently included in Lonely Planet’s pick 2020 of Top 5 Travel destinations in the world. Near pristine wilderness park Baxter State and new National Monument Katahdin Woods and Waters. Among other beautiful nature outings.

It's located only 30 miles (48 kilometers) from the Canada-United States border. The bordering town in the United States is Houlton, Maine, where your passport is required. In Canada, the bordering town is Woodstock, New Brunswick, which is 57 miles (92 kilometers) west of Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada. You can drive easily from New York City and Boston or Canada.

Northern Maine is not highly populated. This yoga and meditation holiday is located in a town of 700 people with two nearby lakes and Baxter State Park with its mighty Mount Katahdin. There are gift shops nearby, a number one 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.
