The Inner Light Lodge is $70/person per night. Normally there is a minimum requirement of 17 people for a 2 day retreat, 16 people for 3-4 days and 15 people for 5 or more days. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the minimum number of people for a group retreat is 10 (not including the leader). There is no charge for accommodations for the workshop leader (or one of the workshop leaders if the group has more than one), but there is the usual fee for meals. Day use (weekdays only) is $35 per person. If there is no schedule conflict and participants or leaders need to arrive early, the standard fee of $70 per night applies.
A $500 deposit is required to reserve Inner Light Lodge. If a reservation is cancelled more than 6 months before the event, a full refund will be issued, less a $50 processing fee. A partial refund (of $250) will be issued for cancellations made 4 to 6 months before the event. No refund will be made if a reservation is cancelled less than 4 months prior to the event. If a group cancels 2 months or less prior to the event, an additional $250 cancellation fee is required.
The cost for the Cottages is based on a sliding scale: $65-90/person for 1 person per 24 hours, $55-70/person for more than 1 person per 24 hours. An additional fee will be charged for staying longer than your reserved time. A deposit of $50 is required to secure your reservation ($100 for retreats lasting 7 days or more). The deposit will be forfeited if you cancel or reschedule within 7 days of the retreat date. The day-use fee for one individual using a cottage is $30/day, and the day use fee per person as part of a small group retreat is $20/day.
The sliding scale for the Huts is $35-55/person per 24 hours.
If a group retreat uses the Cottages and Huts as well as the Lodge, the rates for the Cottages and Huts are fixed, as per the contract (but within the sliding scale).
See grid below to find out total cost for the different types of individual and group retreats.
Usually, food costs for individual retreatants is $35 per day (dinner served with simple fixings provided for breakfast and lunch), or $25 per day (dinners only). Because of the pandemic, we are unable to provide meals for individual retreatants at this time.
Group Food Costs
At Inner Light Lodge: Meal cost is $60/person per day for three served meals. Breakfast is $15, Lunch is $20, and Dinner is $25. We will prorate meal costs depending on when a group arrives and departs (e.g., group pays only for breakfast and lunch if they leave after lunch on final day). All participants must pay for all the meals slated for that retreat. If a group has fewer than 11 persons, the minimum number of participants, the group must still pay for meals for 11 to cover our costs. If a group makes allowances for commuters, and if Light on the Hill provides meals for the group, commuters must pay the same food costs. A group that does not have meals provided by Light on the Hill staff must pay a kitchen-use fee of $100 per day.
