Deposit & Cancellation Policies

St. Mary’s Sewanee-Sponsored Programs and Retreats:

A $100 non-transferable deposit is required to confirm your registration for an event. It can be fully refunded if cancelled within three (3) days of booking; this deposit is nonrefundable after that. The remaining balance is due seven (7) days prior to arrival.

If you are registering online, payment in full is required at the time of registration. If you prefer to only make the $100 deposit, please register by calling us at 931-598-5342.

Individual and Personal Retreats:

A  non-transferable $50 deposit per room is required. It can be fully refunded if cancelled within three (3) days of booking; this deposit is nonrefundable after that.  The remaining balance is due upon check-in.

Group Retreats:

A $250 non-refundable, non-transferable administrative fee is due with a signed contract thirty (30) days after the contract has been issued. If your deposit is not received at the agreed upon time, St. Mary’s Sewanee reserves the right to revoke your booking. A valid credit card must be on file with the initial contract, even if your accommodations are paid for by cash or check.

Groups must pay a $50 per room deposit no later than twelve (12) months before the retreat arrival date. The balance is due fourteen (14) days in advance of your arrival date. The final payment is nonrefundable and nontransferable. If accommodations are not paid for fourteen (14) days before your arrival date, the credit card on file will be charged.

Cancellations that occur between the booking date and ninety (90) days before the arrival date are refunded, less the $250 administrative fee. 

For cancellations between the ninety (90) and thirty (30) days before the arrival date, a refund of one-half the amount paid to date will be issued, minus the $250 administrative fee. 

Cancellations made within thirty (30) days of the arrival date forfeit all payments made to St. Mary’s Sewanee.
