This just in from the Shawmont
Suzanne Cherry wrote me with this info – good and helpful to know! I’ll post it on the retreat page, too!
We normally have a two day minimum for the weekends but I am willing to waive this requirement for your group.Individuals will need to contact the hotel direct by telephone (732-776-6985) to make their reservations and to make arrangements for a deposit to confirm the room. At the present time, we have lots of rooms with twin beds so we should have no problems accommodating everyone. Some of our rooms have AC and others just have ceiling fans.
Individuals can make a tentative reservation and we will hold it for 10 days without a deposit. At that time, they must pay 1 night deposit to confirm the room and this is refundable (less a $15.00 processing fee) up until 14 days prior to their arrival. After that date, there are no refunds for cancellations.
I am listing the rooms and rates that your group might be interested in:
$157 – Twin beds, private bath, TV, AC
$128 – Twin beds, private bath, ceiling fan
$157 – Queen bed,private bath, TV,AC.
$ 85 – Single bed, private bath, ceiling fan
$107 – Double bed, private bath, ceiling fan
On the non-retreat front, it’s life as usual around here! We’re gearing up for our vacation (15 days from today and counting…) and I’m furiously knitting up swatches and finishing some projects so I won’t have to take any project knitting with me. I’ve been intruiged by the cafe-press print on demand service they’re beta-testing and I think I should start looking for a good technical editor myself and put my own book together. But what should it be on? Knitting Millinery? Knitting in the Combination Style? Knitting Furniture? Hmmmmmm…. Que pense?
I’m trying a new comments system as Yakks is just being so darned dopey and hard to use. Let’s see if it actually WORKS!
