Arrival and Departure

Our guest services staff will be here to greet you when you arrive at our reception desk.

Our office hours are: 8:30 am - 5:00 pm Mon through Thu, 8:30 am - 6:30 pm Fri, and 9:00 am - 5:00 pm Sat & Sun.

Check in whenever you like after 1:30 pm and enjoy the buildings and grounds. Your room will be ready no later than 3:00 pm. We strongly recommend that you arrive by 5:00 pm Wed-Fri and 4:00 pm Sat-Tues; it makes for a more relaxing start for your visit. Please call us if you plan to arrive after hours. If you arrive after hours, there will be no staff at the front desk to greet you, but we will leave you a key, map and welcome packet so you can get to your room.

Programs begin with dinner (usually at 6:30 pm) on the first day listed and end with lunch on the last day. Check-out time is 11:00 am. Guests, especially those from far away, who are enrolled in a particular program find it works best to arrive a day or more before the program begins to unwind and / or to stay a day or more afterward to integrate their experience. Contact us for nightly rates.
