The Institute provides an aesthetically pleasing environment for academic and artistic pursuits. It's buildings are located on the forested summit of Eagle Hill and are only a short walk away from the seashore, a blueberry field, and a number of spectacular panoramic overlooks of the coast of Maine. Care has been taken in the construction and sitting of all structures on the approximately 150-acre campus to minimize impact on the existing habitat. Thus, buildings are clustered, but nestled in the woods, providing privacy and maintaining the natural aesthetics of the forested setting.
There are two general classrooms with an assortment of general lab equipment and dissecting and compound microscopes for each student as well as a separate laboratory for independent study use.
Both modern and more rustic residential facilities offer participants and guests at Eagle Hill a range of housing options. All bathrooms at the station have hot and cold running water, showers, and are for use by only one person at a time. Tenters are welcome at the station and have use of bathroom facilities in a nearby washhouse.
The original Commons building serves as a dining hall where resident guests who participate in seminars and workshops are served family style meals. With the addition to the Commons building, the Institute will now be gradually shifting to restaurant style dining for evening meals, allowing day-visitors to join resident guests for meals.
Four different lounges/common rooms of varying size are currently available for meetings, gatherings, presentations, and conferences. The completion of the Commons additions will also add significantly in this capacity.
The Eagle Hill Library is now located in the Commons building. The new library space, which is not yet finished, will include reading rooms and a computer lab.
Taken all together, the quality of the facilities and the beauty of the setting compliment the program offerings at Eagle Hill and keep many of the participants coming back again and again, year after year.
