About Jessika Brooks-Brewer

For 100 years, the Retreat house was a summer camp known as the Hersey Retreat. The community of homes and cottages on the road spurned from the church activity at the estate at the end of the road. My family are 5 generation decedents of members of the church that used to own the estate. Like my father before me, I spent my summers running along the shore, through the woods and in the blueberry fields of that magical place. After over three decades of under-utilization of the facilities, the church decided to sell the property. In 2002, we acquired the estate and got to work renovating and restoring both buildings. Today, we offer one of the most beautiful, private settings for memorable family vacations, weddings and private events in New England.
