Study Retreats on the coast of eastern Maine: Enjoy nature’s splendors on the eastern Maine coast this fall, winter, and spring during an extended study weekend at the Eagle Hill Institute

Alumni and friends of the Eagle Hill Institute and others who want to get away to study, read, and write for scientific, literary, and/or artistic pursuits in academic setting are welcome to stay at the Eagle Hill Institute. 

Secluded on the quiet forested seaside hilltop immediately east of the Schoodic Point section of Acadia National Park, the Eagle Hill Institute is well-suited for study retreats. Amenities include …


Guests have opportunities to intersperse their studies with outings on the hiking and snowshoeing trails that extend throughout our 150-acre tract of land along the shore of Dyer Bay on the Gulf of Maine. The Institute’s trails meander through the forest, past overlooks which offer panoramic vistas, into a blueberry field, and down to the ocean.  Two canoes are available for use. Acadia National Park, Petit Manan National Wildlife Refuge, and many other nature preserves with hiking trails, ponds, streams, and rivers are just a short distance away by car. There are cross-country skiing trails in Petit Manan National Wildlife Refuge and snowshoeing trails at the Institute and at other nearby preserves.
