ABOUT THE BEE

Hello and welcome. The Foggy Bee is a creative retreat, art studio and gathering place. It's a place to ground and find rhythm. Come experience the unique environment and craggy coastline of Downeast, Maine and the quiet luxury of The Bee. Watch eagles soar over the water and mama fox hunt the cove to feed her kits. Enjoy the chug of the lobster boats if you're an early riser and the spectacular sunsets from the deck or the firepit after a satisfying Downeast day.  

This is a wild (but safe) place to explore and create.  Art, memories or healing. Or all three. It's up to you.


The Bee sits on the steep banks of the Narragaugus River as it meets the Narragaugus Bay, located in Milbridge, Washington County, Maine. This area of Maine is referred to as Downeast, because it's down east of maritime Canada--way up north in Maine (wave to Nova Scotia from the expansive deck)!  It's an hour or so northeast of Acadia National Park, Bar Harbor and its cousins, Northeast and Southwest Harbors.  Winter Harbor is about 25 minutes from here and offers a ferry to Bar Harbor from July 1st through Labor Day. Bangor is the closest largest city and airport, at just over an hour's drive and Belfast is an hour and a half.  The Canadian border (and Campobello Island) is also about an hour or so away (passport required).  

The Foggy Bee was a sleepy little New England cape that has undergone a major facelift (first photo). She's now a classic New England barn house with a sweeping view of the river and bay (second photo).  Enjoy the light-filled, calming vibe of the working studio, common kitchen with a large island and a dining lounge to share family-style meals.  Across the street (and part of the Bee family) is approximately 90 acres of wild blueberry barrens, deciduous and evergreen forest and a 1800's cemetery to explore.  

Yoga sessions run on Saturday mornings from 9:30 - 10:30.  Season, starting in June, 2024, will be buzzing with classes, retreats, workshops, healing programs and residencies!  Subscribe to get email notifications as new programs become available.
