No Pets please
We love animals. However, because Adriana has a hypoallergenic, non-shedding, super friendly but territorial dog—we do not allow pets to attend.
Each resident will be responsible for his or her transportation to and from the lodge at all times.
Adriana will provide food for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. She will prepare breakfast and dinner for each resident.
Note: Each resident is responsible for purchasing their own beverages, as well as specific foods.
Breakfast is provided each morning in the lodge, available from 7-9am, continental style. Residents eat lunch on their own. Every evening, we will have a sit-down dinner. Each meal is made from primarily locally-sourced meats, veggies, and dairy. Options for vegans and vegetarians are available upon request, and food will be prepared specially for those with other dietary restrictions.2017 RESIDENCY FEES
