Our beautiful campus, cozy facilities, and affordable rates make the Grünewald Guild an ideal location for a personal retreat or sabbatical. The Guild offers spaces for individuals, couples or families to rest and reflect, explore the natural world, express their creativity in one of our art studios, or focus on a sabbatical project.
To honor strict physical distancing standards, we are only allowing one guest unit (individual, couple or family) in each of our six private lodging spaces: Homestead, Fiber Arts Building First Floor (Room 1), Fiber Arts Building Second Floor, Ceramics Studio Upper Apartment, Library Dorm, and when it becomes available, the River Cabin.
Each of these lodging spaces has a microwave, mini-fridge, and coffee maker. A 2-burner portable stove can be requested. At this time it is necessary for guests to provide their own meals.
To support our local restaurants, we encourage you to enjoy their take-out service:
Rental rate is $100 per night (+$30/night for each additional bedroom in the Homestead and Fiber Arts Building Second Floor). We request a 3-night minimum stay, with arrival at 3:00pm or later and departure by 3:00pm. We will schedule 48-hour vacancies between stays. This will allow for proper cleaning and sanitizing of the spaces to take place between guests.
Art studio space is also available for $100 for the period of your stay. Artists must bring their own materials (paint, ink, brushes, etc.). Usage of the ceramics studio is restricted to the building room. All ceramics pieces will be fired by Guild staff.
The Art Studios are assigned accordingly:
- Homestead – Paint, Glass, or Print Studio
- Fiber Arts Building First Floor (Room 1) – Paint, Glass or Print Studio
- Fiber Arts Building Second Floor – Fiber Arts Studio (the 1/2 with the microwave/fridge)
- Ceramics Studio Upper Apartment – Ceramics Studio
- Library Dorm – Library Studio
The art studios can also be rented by those not staying on campus (i.e. local friends). Rental periods will abide by the same strict cleaning/sanitizing schedule. Each studio will have an assigned bathroom on campus, which may not be in the studio’s building. The Fiber Arts Studio rental will be for 1/2 the studio, using a specific door for entry/exit. Feel free to contact Studio Manager Gray Lyons for details.
We hope you enjoy our contemplative spaces, perhaps as you’ve never experienced them before. It’s a very quiet campus these days.
