Nomad Retreat Center is a haven for nature lovers seeking adventure or looking for a quiet getaway; an escape from the electronic world. Join us on 100 acres of forest, orchards, and gardens to write, read, create, connect, relax, or find stillness; maybe catch a glimpse of deer, fox, or other native animals (occasionally moose or black bear).

Drink your morning coffee or tea while exploring the organic gardens & sanctuaries. Gently swing in a hammock under a canopy of trees. Bird watch or paint nature while engulfed in the scenery you’re portraying. Explore the forest and its many trails. Make a fire and share stories; build a crystal chart or labyrinth out of local crystals scattered about the site; learn about the homestead and opt to get your hands dirty with some gardening or trail creation. Pitch your tent under hardwoods, white birch, or tall leaf filled trees. Lay under the starry night sky and fall asleep listening to the peepers and coyotes.

Resting on top of a bed of quartz crystallization where Amethyst, Smokey Quartz, Garnet, Tourmaline, and Beryl, and other gems and minerals can be found, the remote, peaceful town of South Paris is 1 hour from Portland, Maine, nestled in the “heartbeat of the hills,” or the foothills of the white mountains. Surrounded by ponds, lakes, rivers, and other eco-attractions that invite hiking, kayaking & canoeing, fishing, swimming, sailing, climbing & bouldering, foraging, crystal mining, & apple & berry picking, Nomad Retreat Center is a home base for outdoor recreation, adventure, and community.

Beautiful land in a lovely part of Maine. Lynsey was very communicative and helpful. Keep in mind, this site does not have water access super close (need to walk 10 mins to the house to use the hose). It was very quiet and felt like we were really deep in the woods. Also pretty minimal cell service. Google Maps brought us about .2 miles down the road past the property so had to back track a bit to find it. Overall, had a great experience tenting here for the night!
