Renting The Main House

The entire house may be rented by adult-based groups like quilting and sewing guilds and other crafting groups. The Main House can be rented for as many nights as you desire, with a minimum of 2 nights.

What if my bee or guild doesn’t need space for 24 people?

We’ve got you covered!  We now offer The Main House for 3 sizes of groups: 12, 13-16, or 17-24 people. Look at our Rental Policies page for rental pricing and policies.

Please note: We do not have downstairs lodging; our lodging is all upstairs, accessible by stairs and an elevator. The ground floor is only accessible by stairs in case of a fire, therefore for the safety of wheel chair bound guests we are unable to accommodate them in overnight lodging. We welcome wheelchair bound guests in all of our classes and retreats. However, for retreats, they will need to register as a day-student.
