Why Choose Us

Our cuisine is an exquisite experience in a culinary adventure you won’t forget. Organic and local when available, our food is natural without preservatives and chemicals. We do not use GMO foods, gluten, white sugar and flour, soy, corn, dairy or red meat. Three times a week we serve an optional organic chicken or wild caught fish meal. Our gourmet meal recipes are created and crafted by Marian Tobin Hardy, who has a passion for farm-to-table organic foods.

Daily body movement classes are part of your all-inclusive package at Naturally Well by the Shore. Weekday health and wellness lectures will help guide you to create an individualized health program you can start on your own when you arrive home. Reducing chronic inflammation (localized or systemic) is a main part of our educational program – when it is out of control in your body it can lead to arthritis, intestinal problems and many other diseases including cancer.

Every guest will receive the attention and care they deserve and need. Some guests may want to just come and relax and do their own thing which is fine with us too – it’s your retreat.

What we do

We bring many years of tried, tested and proven experience to our proprietary detox, mindfulness, healing and weight loss wellness retreat designed to meet anyone where they’re at.

Whether you’re healing from an illness, highly active, a first-time cleanser or a seasoned vet, we personalize your program to ensure you have the most optimal and beneficial experience possible.

We do what we love

Primarily an educational and experiential retreat, we aim to create an environment which will enable, bestow, empower and advocate a healthy lifestyle which will enhance your physical, emotional, mental and spiritual well-being.

We offer to teach you not about the human body, but your human body – how to care for it, understand it, energize it, feel, nurture and feed it.

We offer all this in a comfortable, private and safe environment designed to nourish & with like-minded people willing to share the experience.

The demands of today’s fast-paced lifestyle to the brink of health consequences and we consider fixing them with a quick remedy such as a prescribed or over-the-counter drug. This is not a curative approach, but instead trying to manage symptoms.

When you create space in your schedule to join with us in your chosen program, you will see the value in restorative wellness using a more natural approach to optimizing your health.
