This is a feature we offer to Workshop Participants. From time to time we receive requests from workshop participants who wish to come early and/or stay a few days after their scheduled course.
Overnight lodging rates are $25 per day. This special rate is for workshop participants only. This modest fee helps pay for electricity, water, and insurance. Obviously we are not a hotel, B&B, or spa retreat, and we have virtually no services – you are on your own. As a non-profit organization, we welcome additional donations (separate from lodging fee) to help maintain these facilities. As a 501(3)c non-profit, your donations are tax deductible. Rather then give a hotel $150 a day, stay at the Institute for as a a donation instead!
Housing: The housing is shared, not private, with simple furnishings reflective of the Southwest. The only two bathrooms are located in the Student Building. Each has a shower, hooks for your towel, and shelving for your bath kit. While we proved them some prefer to bring their own towel, pillow case etc. We do have cots and sleeping bags, and pillows. Like we said, we are rustic. Guest buildings have no clocks, radios, TV or Internet capabilities. You will find no air-conditioning in the buildings, but they do have fans with screened windows and screen doors.
Food: While all meals during workshops are provided, on extra days you are responsible for bringing your own. The Student Building has a kitchen where you may prepare your own meals and store the food you bring. Do not store food or food supplies anywhere other than the kitchen, where a metal cabinet is provided to deter rodents. International students may not be have access to purchasing food so we offer whatever we have on hand. It always works out.
Payment: Cash or Check is accepted. It is possible to use PayPal, ask for assistance.
