I am a Sewall House regular, returning each year in the last few years. I always think my upcoming visit cannot top my last, but somehow it always does. This year the other guests were even more comfortable to hang out with–in the yoga studio, at the dinner table, and on Loon Ledge on the Lake–than ever before, but if I wanted solitude, I could drift away to my spacious, charming bedroom for an afternoon siesta–or stroll the tiny town to browse the consignment shop or just gaze at the island in the falls. They are always improving their home: a fresh new bathroom downstairs makes everything even more inviting. And yoga with Donna is the best: I always think I will be too sore to take the next class, but I always take it, and I never feel more flexible and balanced than when I am at Sewall House.
