Security Deposit

$150 security deposit is required to hold a reservation and is only used if damages occur or check policies are not followed. The security deposit is separate from the $1600 weekend retreat fee. The deposit will be returned within 30 days of a retreat taking place or can be rolled over to the next retreat date.


Any cancellations made less than 45 days prior to the reservation date will forfeit the $150 deposit. Additional money paid will be refunded only if the reservation date can be re-booked.

Deposit Refund

Inventory is taken before and after each rental. Damages, missing items, checkout assessments and/or charges for additional cleaning will be deducted from the deposit if necessary. Deposits will be refunded less any charges by check within 30 days after your weekend.

Not to exceed the Limit of 12 Retreaters

The house has a septic system and is on a natural well for the water supply and my concerns are related to the possible overuse of these systems. If groups exceed the number of participants without notifying me, the wear and tear, especially on the septic system, could be devastating. *Please contact me if you are interested in having additional retreats.
