Cancellation and Refund Policy

Deposits are non-refundable. However, if you cancel at least 48 hours in advance of your expected arrival time, the deposit can be applied to a future retreat. Any payment beyond the required deposit will be refunded.

Use Policy

Retreatants may not book rooms or hermitages for non-overnight use longer than five days in advance. Any retreatant staying overnight who retains a room or hermitage past the usual check-out time without special permission will be charged an additional night since we might not be able to put anyone in that room until the following day. To assure maximum privacy and silence, we do not provide room service; retreatants are welcome to wash their own sheets and towels, if desired, at $1 per load.
