Staying at Snow Farm changes a typical workshop experience into a true creative retreat. Leave the world behind and let us take care of everything you need:  homemade meals (and clean-up), linens in your room, and comfy spaces for reading and relaxing.  There are four types of housing you can choose from - all are simple, clean, and comfortable. 

The price of housing includes all meals during the workshop and depends on the length of the workshop.

If a particular choice does not show up while registering, it means the option is no longer available. We keep a housing waitlist, so email us or call the office if you would like to be added. 

See below for detailed descriptions of the dorms, the deluxe singles and the cottage and a price chart at the bottom of the page.


There are four dorm buildings, named with the letters L, I, F, E.  The beautiful mosaic letters on the dorms were made by artist Christine Kenneally. Each dorm is a series of rooms along an open-ended corridor with a centrally-located, single-sex, shared bathroom. One dorm is co-ed with two unisex bathrooms, one of which is accessible.

Dorm rooms have 2 twin beds, a shelf unit, wall pegs, an overhead light, and a table with a small reading lamp. Linens are provided including sheets, towels, a blanket, and a pillow. Beds have warm fleece blankets and mattresses have 2" foam toppers for extra comfort. Small in-room electric heaters come in handy on chillier nights, and electric blankets are available.

Double Rooms
When selecting a double dorm room, participants can request a roommate or we can assign one.

Single Rooms
When selecting a single dorm room, the room is exactly the same as a double, but occupied by only one person.



Single Deluxe Rooms

In 2017, two larger dorm rooms were upgraded to include a single bed, a comfy chair, a desk, and some other extra comforts. An en-suite bathroom with a shower links the two rooms and is shared between them.

The Cottage

For someone who would like a little more privacy and a little more room to spread out, the cottage is ideal. Tucked into a corner of the property near the dining hall, it offers one bedroom with two single beds, a private bath (shower only), a sitting room, kitchenette, and a small outdoor seating area

The Cottage is priced for one person and depends on the length of the workshop.  Like all other accomodations at Snow Farm, linens and meals are included.  If a second person stays in the Cottage, meals need to be added by calling the office. Only one reservation for the cottage is available each session – register early.
