Stay in an off-grid yurt and retreat in Maine's Western mountains & lakes region at Nurture Through Nature Eco~Retreat Center and return to balance.

Retreat in our magical Sunset yurt, for a private and unique getaway. Come to write, read, create, connect or find calm. Enjoy this quiet respite, surrounded by trees, and nestle into your private getaway on the slopes of Pleasant Mountain. Make this your base for outdoor recreation and adventure, with hiking or (snowshoeing) trails right out side your yurt door. Ideal for a solo travelers or a couple's getaway.

Mosquito and black fly conditions vary. Peak exposure is between Mother's Day and Father's Day. Dress in light colored and loose clothing and bring your own favorite repellent.

We do not provide campfire wood. Please bring your own camp fire wood or gather it from the retreat land forest floor.

This yurt is family friendly, too. Kids thrive here! Kids 8 and under are free and please let us know how many are in your group so we can set up the space accordingly.

We have a "self-check in" system. We suggest if you have never been here before, please arrive before dark. If you cannot, have a flashlight/headlamp handy upon arrival. Outdoor lighting is minimal or nonexistent, depending on conditions. You will find a map board on a tree in the parking area.

The sleeping arrangement options are as follows:
1 queen pull out futon couch bed
1 twin pull out chair

Sunset Yurt is part of a green retreat center, Nurture Through Nature, which also offers group retreats on occasion. Based on availability and advanced booking, you may have the opportunity to add services to your getaway, such as a private wood-fired sauna session, a private customized yoga~meditation session, or a guided canoe trip from the resident Maine Guide and founder, Jen Deraspe. All services are based on availability and advanced bookings are encouraged. You may pay on site for any confirmed services you wish to add to enrich your stay.

Autres remarques
We are part of Maine's Greater Bridgton Lakes Region and the Mount Washington Valley in nearby Conway, New Hampshire, offering a high quality of life, with endless possibilities as a recreational haven.
The air is clean, the water pure, the woods inspiring, the sights breathtaking and the night sky bright with the milky way and shooting stars lighting the way.

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.

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.

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, too.

I am from Maine and have created an earth~friendly retreat, Nurture Through Nature, Maine's first green-certified lodging facility (since (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) I thrive in the natural world and by learning what it has to teach. I also love sharing the land and our eco-cabins and yurts with people interested in simplifying through an off the grid lifestyle. I also appreciate the healing arts, such as yoga, meditation, and qi gong. Periodically, we have workshops and retreats led by me or other healing arts practitioners on site. You may want to schedule your stay during one of these events. Otherwise, our spaces are available to personal getaways and you can create your own eco-retreat. Things I love are really good coffee and conversation, dark chocolate, acoustic music, photography, red wine, exploring in nature, quiet places, canoeing, hiking, biking and my cool calico cat, Pearl. Follow us on (Hidden by Airbnb) @NTNretreats or on (Hidden by Airbnb) at Nurture Through Nature.
