A place of tall pines, wellness and creativity retreats, and farm-to-table dining events.
A mountain oasis perched above two lakes bordering the White Mountain National Forest. Only 1.5 hours from Portland, Maine, one has access to breathtaking hikes, waterfalls, swimming holes, and natural pools. The surrounding hills are perfect for hikers, runners, and cyclists. Guests are welcome to snack from the property’s blueberry bushes, blackberry bushes, and apple trees. Topo Pino encompasses over 30 acres ideal for meditation, yoga, reading, or writing.
The property is steeped in history as the former summer location for the Boston Cooking School in the early 1900s. The cooking school became world famous following the 1896 publication of The Boston Cooking School Cook Book by its principal at the time, Fannie Merritt Farmer. Janet McKenzie Hill, a prominent early practitioner of culinary reform, named the property Topo Pino and ran the Boston Cooking School’s summer sessions there.
Fast forward to 2018, this summer will be Topo Pino’s inaugural season of retreats and events.
