Great pics!
We highlighted this Goodyera pubescens in the Jewel Issue. Did you read about it?
I gave the issue a once-over, it's very nice. Having seen about 5000 Goodyera pubescens in the wild at this point, my eyes kind of wax over when they're mentioned :p. My friend and I did germinate both it and tesselata this year, though.

Is this found in your region only?
I wear I saw a lot of these same leaves while hiking in Maine.
Now I know the name! :)

What beautiful foliage. I've photographed about eighteen species of orchids here in MI but I don't think I've seen this. I assume the flowers are somewhat insignificant?

There are also goodyera oblongifolia in Maine; maybe larger leaves less white, and maybe smaller repens and tesselata

This species is common in much of the eastern US and into southern Canada. Here is BONAP’s county-level distribution map for the species. The green areas are where it is considered “present and not rare”, while the yellow areas are where it is considered “present and rare”:

If you are interested in the flora of the US, I highly recommend checking out the website of The Biota of North America Program (BONAP). It is as close to comprehensive as any source could up to this point.
