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

Based on other tripadvisor reviews, I booked trip here with my mother for an August weekend retreat. Donna and her staff did a wonderful job of ensuring we had a restful yet personally expansive experience. Donna's decades of yoga teaching and practice as well as her dynamic personality shone. The Sewall House location in Northern Maine offers a slower pace... More

Very comfortable family style atmosphere- Donna and staff(Stehen and Nadja) go above and beyond to accommodate guests - Donna is a wonderful yoga instructor- knowledgeable, warm, open hearted. Food is vegetarian but not standard vegetarian fare- excellent. Went for a leisurely yoga oriented weekend with daughter-quality time together and this met our expectations .

A week ago, this over- travelled wanderer finally made it to Maine: first to the summer season in Bar Harbor, and then, a few hours away, on a much needed side trip to Island Falls, Maine. The town is celebrating Summerfest; blueberry/ raspberry season in full swing. For many years I have wanted to visit Sewall House, but never quite... More

I sent three weeks at Sewall House in June 2014. I wanted to experience the life of a real yogi and I can say 'check' with success. The food was very healthy and delicious. However, I am not a vegetarian and it became hard after 10 days... Donna took us several times on the lake and hike. We had a... More

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
