The remaining balance is due upon check-in.

Group Retreats:

A $250 non-refundable, non-transferable administrative fee is due with a signed contract 30 days after the Group Contract has been issued. A valid credit card must be on file with the initial contract, even if your accommodations are paid for by cash or check.

All groups are required to pay a $50 per room deposit within one year of the retreat date.

The final payment will be due fourteen (14) days in advance of your arrival date. The final payment is nonrefundable and nontransferable.

A credit card must be on file even if accommodations will be paid for by cash or check. If your deposit is not received at the agreed upon time, St. Mary’s Sewanee reserves the right to revoke your booking.
