I hold three retreats annually in Duncans Mills, CA.  Here is a view from the deck of the lodge building.

 ImageThere are two sewing areas:  the Lodge building and the Dining Hall.  There is a dedicated space for eating and the rest is for sewing machines, etc.  I bring some cutting mats, irons and ironing boards, extra lighting, and fabric for sale.  You are welcome to bring your own chairs and or sitting pads.

I provide a continental breakfast from 7am to 9:30 ish.  Lunch is usually comprised of a large pot of soup and salad.  Sometimes we do pizzas and quesidillas.  In May we have Cino de Maya with chicken fahitas with all the trimmings and margaritas for dinner.  I also serve meals such as:  roasted pork loin with pears; ham with sweet potatoes and barbecued pineapple; chicken picatta with roasted vegies; and pot roast with root veggies, to name a few.  If you have special needs I do my very best to accomodate you.  Please notify me well in advance of the retreat so I can plan our meals accordingly.

All linens, sheets, towels, blankets, etc. are provided. However you do have to make your own bed.  Since we are so close to the ocean I highly recommend bringing a warm sweater or jacket.  Cell phones now work pretty well all across the campus.

There are two sleeping rooms in the Lodge which are reserved for special needs and/or on a first come/first served basis.  There are two shower areas in the Lodge. There are also small cabins each with two beds however you don't have to share if you don't want to.  There is a bathroom near the cabins.  Finally there is the U-Rest building with the woman's bathroom and shower area.  There are no available rooms with bathrooms.  You must leave your room to use the restroom.  All areas are very well lighted.

For more information please call Colleen at 415-686-6067.
