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.
