Maine Oyster Culinary Retreat | Sept 16-22, 2023

Join us in Maine for an immersive culinary experience!



Nestled south of Bath on a tranquil peninsula, join Lady Oyster and Maine Oyster Company invite you to attend our first annual retreat to shellfish paradise.


With a nickname like “Vacationland,” Maine attracts plenty of visitors in the summer who crave the state’s rocky coasts and lobster shacks. But far beyond the tourist’s purview is a coastline of secrets and local revelries. Maine’s cottage charm, jagged beauty, working waterfronts, and underground eats have propelled Maine into a food sophisticate’s dream where authentic food, travel, and community come together.

This is your chance to take your tastebuds on an elevated journey through table and tide. We will delight you in candlelit feasts on the waterfront. You’ll eat, drink, cook, and create alongside local pioneers in food and art. You’ll enjoy sunsets on beaches, hike along coasts, and slurp oysters fresh off the boat!

Here is an overview below. Please visit our website for the full details on accommodations and reservations! We are offering a 10% discount to all reservations before July 4th!

(6 nights)
For six nights on a waterfront village in Westpoint, you’ll stay in authentic cottages with ocean views and lush vegetation. Wallace Circle’s quiet peninsula boasts 180-degree hilltop vistas, a private cove, a seaside lobster business, and Maine Oyster Company’s expansive tidal dock over the water’s edge. Guests will have the option of (2) private guest houses, (2) rooms with private baths, and (3) rooms with shared baths (4) shared bunk rooms.
