Mini Lodge:

ld_gallery_mini_lodge_004

There are two Mini Lodges.  These smaller lodges have sleeping rooms with four bunk beds, so each room could house up to eight people, but we expect to only use the lower bunks, with four people per room. Each sleeping room contains a private three-piece bath, a second private shower room, and an additional two sinks with vanity.  The mini-lodges also have gathering rooms with vaulted ceilings, a fireplace, and a kitchenette.  There is a short, flat, outside walk to the main lodge where the dining room is and where the plenary sessions will be held.

Mini Lodge guests provide their own bedding and towels or can pay a $2.50 fee for bed and bath linens.  For more housing images and floor plans, look here.

  • $210/person – Mini Lodge, room & board Thursday dinner through Sunday lunch
  • $40/bed/night – Mini Lodge a la carte
  • $2.50 fee for bed and bath linens or bring your own

The cabins are located very close to the main lodge, where the dining room is and where the plenary sessions will be held.
