Meals and Lodging

Because so many of our past attendees have sign on again, we have moved our group to The St James Building a few steps from our location last year. We have 18 bedrooms with full baths. With two people to a room, we now have room for 36 people.
The house has a big open room with a fireplace, refrigerator, microwave, a BIG coffee pot, piano and smartboard. Our back porch is larger and has more outlets. So you may work inside or outside. Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner is provided with full retreat registration. The meals are great and they will accommodate special dietary needs. Rooms are comfortable with a small porch area. See our 2016 Gallery page for more pictures of our site and how we used them last year. These will help encourage you to come share in the fun!
