4 nights

For four 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 have the option of private guest houses and rooms within larger shared homes. Prices will reflect single-occupancy and double-occupancy options.

All meals, snacks, raw delights, and provisions will be included. Breakfasts (both hot and cold) will be available every morning on Maine Oyster Company’s waterfront docks.

Wine and beer with meals are included. We will be providing additional alcohol, including spirits, for purchase at Basecamp.

All activities are factored into retreat costs. Example activities: oyster farm tours, sunset cruises, shucking classes, cooking classes, hikes, stargazing, and more. Please see our sample itinerary.

This retreat delivered so much more than local fare of Maine oysters and seafood. Visiting with and getting to know the oyster farmers at their farms, knowing where your food comes from and learning efforts of the community that bond them together was an awesome learning experience! The week exceeded any expectations. Job well done!
