The Retreat House

Dragonfly Cove Retreat House  is situated on the edge of one of the most peaceful ponds in Downeast Maine. Shared with loons, herons, bald eagles and jumping wide mouth bass, Pierces Pond is pristine and untouched. Imagine leaving your stress behind and immersing yourself in nature where you can truly rejuvenate your spirit. Imagine being lulled to sleep by the call of the loons; gazing at a sunset  as it is reflected on the smooth surface of the pond; relaxing with a book or journal in one of our fabulous woven hammocks; or sitting around the bonfire and enjoying the most spectacular star gazing! Imagine practicing a gentle heart-based yoga, taking a long hike up a nearby coastal mountain, or wandering  along the 20 acres of wooded nature trails surrounding the home. Hop in a kayak for a relaxing paddle or take a dip in the pond. There is so much to do — or not do. Simply enjoy the abundance of peace and tranquility for deep, healing relaxation.
