Sewall House Yoga Retreat

The William Sewall House yoga retreat in Island Falls, Maine; has been entered into the National Register of Historic Places. Built by Mr. Sewall in 1865, it was the community's first post office. Mr. Sewall, Island Falls' first citizen, met young Theodore Roosevelt there in 1872 and for three successive fall expeditions served as Roosevelt's guide and companion After 1878 Mr. Roosevelt never returned to Island Falls, but he and Mr. Sewall corresponded frequently. In 1886, Mr. Sewall built Theodore Roosevelt's ranch in North Dakota and told him in 1887: "If you go into politics and live, your chance to be President is good."

Mr. Sewall gained much of his native knowledge from the Indians and was an excellent log man. Donna's great grandfather's chosen location in northern Maine is close to Canada and near Mt. Katahdin, where the sun first hits the East Coast as it rises; you can enjoy the nearby forests, lakes (Mattawamkeag Lake and Pleasant Lake), Baxter State Park and wildlife such as moose and loons. It is here you will be able to experience serenity and solitude, away from the trappings of everyday life. The Yoga retreat offers a warm Bed & Breakfast atmosphere filled with antique treasures and books as well as a lovely fireplace for gatherings in the living room. Yoga DVD's and books are available for use during your stay.
