SANDWICH MTN SANCTUARY
Norman and Cynthia wedding


Norman and Cynthia Scrimshaw are owners and caretakers of Sandwich Mountain Sanctuary. Norman purchased the original cabin, now called “Sandwich Mountain Sanctuary Cabin” and soon after built the attached main house. He has lived here since 2004. Cynthia joined him in 2007. They were married in a special ceremony in August 2008 on the grounds of Sandwich Mountain Sanctuary, witnessed by family, friends and the surrounding mountains.

Together they have planted and nurtured the gardens and worked toward making their lives and Sandwich Mountain Sanctuary sustainable and “Green”, including adding solar panels, composting vegetable waste, diligent recycling, and making a personal decision to eat only plant-based foods since 2009. 


Norman and Cynthia experience deep gratitude and joy every day for being able to live in this healing environment, as it nurtures them spiritually, emotionally and physically. They lovingly share this space with many others beings, including a variety of birds, bees, and butterflies, deer, black bears, coyotes, fox, turkeys, moose, groundhogs, squirrels, chipmunks and other wildlife. It is truly a special place and they welcome other “human” beings to share in the natural beauty and serenity here, and to be embraced by Mother Nature, the mountains and forest.
