We have bears who love trash so, we require that you dispose of all trash generated during your retreat. If you would like us to take care of disposing of your trash the fee is $50
We realize that retreats have an important influence on staff development and that costs are sometimes an obstacle. We want to help when we can to help you reach God's vision for your small church.
We want you to enjoy every feature of our church home, but the mountains have some limitations that you should be aware of. 1) Because of high winds and snow conditions, the Sun-Sails may not be available between October and April. 2) Our fireplace is a naturally aspirated wood burning fireplace so, occasionally the fire can not be used during high wind and extreme fire hazard conditions. 3) We have 'critters' (Racoons, Bears and such) which means no trash can remain on the premises after your retreat. It is most helpful if you remove all trash and take it with you after your retreat (there is no local dumsters available), but if necessary, we can arrange for it to be removed for an additional $50 fee.
