Workshop Accommodations

We think you’ll agree that the Cedar Lodge is a big perk of this 3 day / 4 night workshop retreat.

We will sleep, eat, and have our workshops there together - with some evening excursions, of course.

You can view the Cedar Lodge floor plan and pricing per room.

Prices are all inclusive of the workshops, your stay at the lodge, all meals, and ground transportation.

Rooms are available on a first come, first served basis and will disappear from the registration/workshop product page once booked.

We hope you'll join us for an amazing event!

ADA Considerations

The main workshop area and bedrooms 0 and 1 are on the first floor. The kitchen and all other bedrooms are located upstairs.
