 History of Sewall House  


About Island Falls 


Featured in award winning book by Andrew Vietze (2010) Becoming Teddy Roosevelt: How a Maine Guide Inspired America's 26th President.



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. 


Clear your soul at the historic Sewall House, built in 1865, where yoga instructor Donna Davidge's great grandfather, William Sewall, taught Theodore Roosevelt the wonders, beauty, and healing attributes of nature.
