Nature Retreats at Eagle Hill

The Eagle Hill Institute welcomes guests who would like to escape to the coast of eastern Maine and are looking for a secluded academically-focused setting where they will be living in a nature reserve with a quarter mile on the ocean.

The Institute occupies the summit of the only peninsula immediately east of the Schoodic Point peninsula of Acadia National Park and west of the Petit Manan National Wildlife Refuge peninsula.

The Institute is a natural history science-focused organization which offers diverse programs throughout the year, some of which may be of interest to nature retreat guests. Programs vary depending upon the the time of year. They are open by separate application.
