Retreat Accommodations - General Information

  • LENGTH OF STAY
    The ordinary length of stay at the priory guesthouses is from three days to one week.

  • RESERVATIONS
    Inquiries about availability for individual and group retreat accomodations can be made in writing by email, fax or regular mail.

  • SHOULD YOU NEED TO CANCEL
    Should it become necessary to cancel a reservation, notice should be given as soon as possible by sending an email to guestbrother@westonpriory.org or calling (802) 824-5409. This will allow us to make the space available to others.

  • COST
    No fee is requested, but offerings are accepted by the guestbrother for the upkeep of the guesthouses. Persons unable to make a financial offering are always welcome.

  • PREPARING FOR THE NEXT GUESTS
    Assistance with various house chores (e.g., vacuuming rooms, dusting, remaking beds) is a way to participate in extending hospitality to the guest(s) who will follow you. It also makes it possible for the brothers to extend hospitality to persons without financial means.

  • CLIMATE / CLOTHING

    • May through October: The climate usually calls for some warmer clothing, such as a sweater or light jacket.
    • November through April: These months are winter in Vermont; appropriate clothing is necessary.
    • Informal clothing and rugged shoes are desirable most times of the year. Boots or overshoes are necessary in winter.

  • SMOKING
    Out of sensitivity to other guests, including those who will be following you in the guesthouse, smoking is not permitted in the guesthouses or in the other monastery buildings.

  • PETS
    We ask that you not bring pets with you. Please make arrangements for the care of your pet as you plan your retreat time.
