Curate your stay
While we fully encourage a bit of slowing down and not jam-packing your schedule with all that much, we do have a few plan-in-advance activities to consider for your Tops’l Farm visit. If any of these are of interest, please reach out and we will see if we can put the wheels in motion.
Walk down the wooded, fern covered path to our Riverside Yurt and enjoy yoga with one of several instructors familiar with the Tops’l vibe. Private & group lessons can be arranged with advance notice. Namaste!
Registered Maine Guide Jeremy Lucas has over 25 years of archery experience. In addition to archery skills, he offers years of experience and knowledge in many different outdoor skills ranging from camping/survival to kayaking (both whitewater & sea kayaking), canoeing, fishing and hunting. A resource for Team Tops’l from nearby Nobleboro Maine, we are excited to offer his services to our guests this summer.
Take a trip together to nature's general store! While you may look at a wooded space and see weeds and roots, what you are really witnessing is nature's bounty. In a 2 hour sensory adventure, join forager-extrordinaire Dr. Aline Potvin for a magical tour through the Tops'l farm landscape. You'll learn to see the plants around you in a completely different way, exploring their traditional culinary, medicinal, and utilitarian uses.
Why not schedule a massage or reflexology session in the woods while glamping? Enjoy a peaceful walk to our riverside yurt for a therapeutic massage or reflexology session for those tired feet. You won’t regret it.
Wayfinding, shelter building, fire making. So much to learn, so little time. We have partnered with Maine Guide Jeremy Lucas who can share skills and introduce you to some basic survival skills. Like Man Vs Wild...(except without the gross eating parts).
The simple pleasure of staring at a vast expanse of sky cannot be underestimated. Take your knowledge of our galaxy to the next level with an evening under the stars — learning some constellations, taking in the view, being amazed.
