Retreats and Rentals at SCAI

The Sunrise County Arts Institute Creative Retreats A Room of Your Own! We offer special Creativity Retreats for writers, visual artists, songwriters and composers throughout the year. The fees paid for these retreats help to support SCAI's work in the community.  Our 3BR, 2-bath attached apartment wing, handicap-accessible, with its own kitchen, laundry, and private entrances, is available for individual creators or a small group. Cross the field to our private wooded point, with its 270-degree views of the Atlantic Ocean, the mouth of Narraguagus Bay and its islands, and the town center of Milbridge across the water.

Take the stairway down to the beach for a stroll or a dip. Rent a kayak from a nearby business, or go whale-watching or island-viewing from the deck of a local tour guide's boat. Buy fresh lobster, clams, "wrinkles" and scallops in season from the people who harvest and prepare them.

Since the pandemic began, we have had to make a minumum stay of 13 nights. Come as an individual, or assemble a small group of trusted fellow creatives! 

Each November, we provide special retreat opportunities for NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writers' Month) participants, and optional support groups and activities.

*Note: when not being used for SCAI events and retreats, the apartment is available for vacation rentals. You can see details on this private site page, then contact us directly for dates and pricing.  Paid Creativity Retreats and vacation rentals help support SCAI's operating costs to make local programs possible.
