    Accommodations

    There are two types of cabins: rustic cabins, which are simple plywood cabins built in the 1950's with heat, beds, and shared campground bathroom buildings; and e-cabins, which are modern motel-level buildings where two units share a bathroom.

    The 40 rustic cabins are quieter and simpler but one must walk across the lawn to the bathrooms. We can offer single or double occupancy in the rustic cabins to all participants.

    The 16 e-cabins are lighter, more modern, and share a bathroom. There can be more noise in e-cabins due to the sharing of the bathroom and we ask e-cabin residents to be very careful of the noise from doors and bathroom fixtures so as not to disturb their neighbor.

    A surcharge is required for lodging in the more modern e-cabins. 

    Consider helping us make e-cabins available to more people by requesting double occupancy. We will do our best to match you with a compatible roommate and to honor requests for roommates if you are coming to retreat with a friend.

    During the registration process, you may request one of these options: rustic, e-cabin with double occupancy, e-cabin with single occupancy, or RV or camping.
