Wilderness House
is a 6-bedroom cabin built in the early 20th century as a sportsman retreat by a large wealthy family. Situated deep within several hundred acres of forest, Wilderness House sits on one of the highest points in Littleton MA with an unobstructed view of the Wapack Range and, on a clear day, Mt. Monadnock some 40 miles distant in New Hampshire. A series of trails lead from the cabin atop Wilderness Hill through this primitive preserve to a private dock nestled in a secluded corner of Littleton's Long Lake.

Wilderness House is owned and managed by the New England Forestry Foundation. For over 50 years, NEFF has demonstrated that well-managed working forests, both publicly and privately owned, can provide the owner and the community with the prime ingredients for healthy living: clean air and water, sustainable production of an array of forest products, healthy forests for hiking and relaxation, diversity of wildlife and habitats, periodic income, and a sustainable local and regional economy supported by renewable natural resources. In short NEFF seeks to realize that ideal balance of man, industry and nature sought after by Henry David Thoreau .

In the future the Wilderness House Literary Retreat will offer a series of intense literary workshops lead by an acknowledged literary master of their genre. Each week a different literary genre will be presented. We may have poets one week, mystery writers the next followed by playwrights after that. Participants will be limited to those who can comfortably sleep in the 5 rooms of the cabin (typically no more than 10) or who live nearby. There will never be more than 20 participants. The goal of the Wilderness House Literary Retreat is to embrace the literary goals of each participant in such a way as to empower each writer to become better than when they arrived and to inspire each participant with a new sense of what can be.
