Sewall House was an absolute delight that well-exceeded the expectations that we had for a little getaway retreat where we would practice some yoga, eat healthful vegetarian meals, and have some quality time together as a couple. We selected Sewall House as a way to mark and celebrate the completion of my certification as a Culinary Nutrition Expert (CNE) through... More

Sewall House is an old, historic, classically New England home that is now a yoga retreat center. Though it is filled with yoga books and wisdom, it has not been converted into a New Age palace. It retains all of the quirks of a (large) private home filled with history and tradition - yet, because it is a yoga retreat... More

I very carefully reviewed info on Sewall House and read every review before spending three weeks there, June 2nd to June 24th. To say the least, I was NOT disappointed! It is a lovely, 180)'s vintage rural property surrounded by natural beauty unrivaled. For any person who loves the outdoors and activities such as hiking, walking, kayaking or boating, and... More

Sewall House is a Northern Maine gem. Donna is a gifted teacher who supports and challenges both beginner and advanced students. Having no experience with yoga studios, I was nervous that I would be out of place - those concerns vanished during my first class with Donna. Nadia (house manager/chef) and Jemina (chef) prepared flavorful vegetarian meals and tasty desserts.... More

Great place to for a getaway. I wanted to run away from home and took this 2 day 4 hr drive per day to get there. Interested in learning more about Yoga in a more personalized environment I got my wish. Donna runs a multilevel class and everyone gets a workout with personalized instruction and a greater understanding of the... More

After a stressful year I couldn't wait to head up to Northern Maine for a week of yoga and meditation. I didn't realize how much more I was going to get out of it. The morning started with a much needed meditation by a flowing river breathing in that fresh air, followed by an amazing multilevel yoga class that combined... More

Sewall House is a great place to relax, enjoy the great outdoors, and deepen your yoga practice. The staff works very hard to please the guests and were always there to provide everything from bug spray to packed lunches for hikes. The accommodations are very comfortable and the food is plentiful and tasty. The yoga classes in the morning and... More

I had a wonderful 3 days at Sewell House. Comfortable beautiful house. Amazing food. And truly awesome yoga. This place is right in the middle of Island Falls. A small town of 700. Although there are a lot of things to do close by when you're not doing yoga, it poured while I was there, and I was happy to... More

I spent an amazing week at the Sewall House Yoga Retreat and I can not wait to go back! It was my first time to Maine, first solo trip, and first experience with yoga. I am normally pretty shy around new people, but Donna and Nadja were so welcoming and easy to be around, I didn't feel like I was... More

I was going to go alone, but my friend decided to join me at the last minute. Both Of us had a great time! It was definitely a little more giggly and a lot less introspective then originally planned. We only stayed 2 nights, however, we felt completely reinvigorated by the time we left. Donna is wonderful! Her personality shines,... More
