Note: When you attend both retreat weekends, your lodging for the 4 weeknights between retreats is $30 per night (a 50% discount).
Many songwriters opt for the full ten days so they can enjoy the midweek serenity and write more songs. We gather ourselves at night in the Fireside Room. Songs are sung. They're heard. We're good at listening.
Discounted lodging rate for pre and post stays are $60 per room, per night.
You may pay the Birchwood Inn directly upon arrival.
