Travis Mills Foundation’s New Retreat Center for Veteran Families

Feeney, Inc. is proud to have provided The Travis Mills Foundation with CableRail products for the waterfront cottage at the foundation’s recently opened 11,000 square foot retreat center in Maine. Nestled on 17 acres on a lake in Hallowell, Maine, the Travis Mills Foundation Veterans Retreat offers an all-inclusive, all paid place of rest and relaxation for America’s military families, including access to water and land recreational activities along with onsite spa services.

“Our foundation is fortunate to have partnered with Feeney for the waterfront cottage at our national retreat center. America’s military families sacrifice so much so that we may all live free, and we’re honored that Feeney would work with us provide for our retreat,” said U.S. Army SSG (Ret.) Travis Mills, president and founder of the Travis Mills Foundation.

“The best part is that Feeney’s cable railing provides visibility for those veterans who are wheelchair bound to still enjoy scenic views of the lake, while also providing a durable product we’ll be able to rely on for years to come,” added Mills.

Mills founded the non-profit organization in 2013 to help combat injured veterans overcome physical obstacles and strengthen their families while also offering much needed rest and relaxation. In 2015, with the aim of providing a place where veterans and their family members could return together to an active lifestyle, the foundation purchased the Maine property. Since opening its doors in June 2017, the retreat center has welcomed more than 54 military families – and plans to host families for at least 40 weeks each year.

“We would have never been able to provide such an amazing experience for our veterans at our waterfront cottage this year without Feeney’s support,” said Brandy Cain, lead gift officer for the Travis Mills Foundation. Their easy-to-use products made installation a breeze, which kept our contractors right on schedule. I’ll forever be grateful that they believe in and support our veterans – including us at the Travis Mills Foundation.”

The retreat center, which includes the former Main Chance Lodge built by cosmetics pioneer Elizabeth Arden, will be featured on a Maine Cabin Masters episode scheduled to air on Monday, Dec. 11.
