We expected the retreat center to be tucked in the woods, but instead it was in the main part of town and walkable to hikes and local amenities. Once inside the doors, we entered a beautiful caring, light filled space filled with history and nurturing. Our room was spacious and comfortable but the food and yoga made the experience memorable.... More

This is my second time staying at Sewall House Yoga Retreat. The first time I stayed was as a paying guest and this second time was under the work-study exchange program. I am so glad I applied for the program! I was at a point in my life where I needed to reconnect with nature, get some rest and more... More

My mother passed away in September 2014, and I needed to recharge my mind, body, and spirit. Sewall House provides an ideal environment for these life transitions. Donna's open, friendly demeanor makes guests feel welcome and comfortable immediately. As a yoga teacher, she is patient and attuned to the needs of each student. Full disclosure: I was the only guest... More

I've been to Sewall House 3 times now. Twice as a guest and once for work study. It's just the best place. And in a world and time when we have so many options, I choose to come back to Island Falls Maine. The house/rooms are wonderful, the food is always so delicious, and the warm, relaxing, supportive atmosphere is... More

This place is wonderful. The old house is beautiful and nicely kept up -- it has been in the owner's family for generations. I stayed in the Harriet Room which is on the 3rd floor and one of the less expensive options b/c it is a smaller room. I loved it. It was cozy and comfortable and the shared bath... More

For my first solo vacation I knew I wanted to do something that would involve personal growth. I had always enjoyed doing yoga but I wanted to learn more about the spiritual side of the practice. Donna certainly delivered in guiding me through meditations, mantras and asanas that deepened my understanding. It opened my mind and heart. Through each practice... More

I just returned from my 5th visit to Sewall House. Each time has been a wonderfully different experience. I first went because I desperately needed a vacation that I could easily take by myself from Boston. I’ve returned several times because of the people I’ve met there and the inspiring life lessons I take home each time. The chance to... More

This was my first solo trip and I couldn't have picked a better place to go! Donna, the owner and yoga instructor, is an amazing woman who truly cares about her guests and staff (and pets). I'm from Florida where the summers are humid and full of thunderstorms-- but the weather in Island Falls during August is absolutely beautiful! If... More

I have visited Sewall House many times and each has been a unique experience. The one consistent thread through all my visits has been Donna's commitment to creating a space where guests can rest, renew and recharge. The setting is a beautiful historic home nestled in the heart of a quaint, rustic town. The healthy vegetarian food is delicious and... More
