Location description from owner

The Maine region

Our retreat sits on 33 wooded, hillside acres at the base of Pleasant Mountain. Nurture Through Nature Eco-Retreat Center offers private hiking trails, a crystal clear brook with dipping pools and granite sleuths and soaking pools right near by. We have a medicine wheel for a spectacular place to sit with long views of Mount Washington and the White Mountains National Forest. We border Nature Conservancy and Loon Echo Land Trust lands, forever protected from development.

Our off the grid Sunset Yurt is part of Maine's first green certified retreat center.

Denmark

Rural, countryside destination along a quiet, well~maintained, unpaved road. Forest, mountains, ponds, lakes, rivers, our own spring~fed mountain brook, wildlife, and clear skies.

We feel very remote and rural yet are accessible to nearby villages and towns for your sundries, ice, supplies, groceries, farmers markets, dining and the like.

What we love most about this part of the world is that the landscape, waterways, and mountains are so incredibly beautiful (stunning, really). And amidst the beauty, culture thrives, through art, music, dining and a warm, friendly, safe community of people surrounding this place, making it a getaway that feels like home. We are grateful we get to share it and call it home.

If you are a winter traveling, do note, we are 4 miles from Shawnee Peak ski area, which is family friendly and has night skiing as well. Shawnee Peak is actually on Pleasant Mountain, just on the other side of the same mountain where we are located. Also, the snowmobile trail system which is a mile from here makes for great cross country skiing, as does the Brownfield Bog. We are near some pretty amazing ski touring places if you want that experience as well.

If you like mountain biking or paddling, we can point you in the right direction for some great excursions.

Basically, if you want to get outside and move your bones, we have it here for you, year round, any season and just about any sport.

If shopping and dining is your thing, we are near excellent dining, antiquing, and outlet shopping opportunities in nearby North Conway, New Hampshire, and Bridgton, Maine. Add culture and enrichment as you are inspired with many options at this destination retreat. Love music and the arts? Check out the Denmark Arts Center; a year round center for the arts right in our little rural village, Stone Mountain Arts Center has national music acts only 15 minutes away in Brownfield, Maine. The Leura Hill Eastman Performing Arts Center at Fryeburg Academy is only 10 minutes away.
