Monastery Guesthouse > Guest Accomodations

Contributions made by guests for accommodations and meals are our primary means of financial support. While these suggested donations help us earn our living, each guest must decide what he or she can afford. Lodging in the guesthouse includes the room and all meals.

There are two guest residence which include the main guesthouse and the Ranch House. The main guesthouse is a five minute walk to the church and dining area. It has thirteen rooms, some with and without private baths and a common room with a small kitchen. Most single rooms share a mens' common bath room or a womens' common bath room. The Ranch House is a three minute walk to the church and dining area. There are three double rooms and a common room with a kitchenette, bathroom and private shower room.

Guest accommodations and suggested donations rates are per night with a two night minimum stay. Although we cannot guarantee the availability of a specific room, we will try to accommodate your request. In addition, we cannot confirm any reservation until we have received a one night non-refundable deposit. Reservation requests will not be held without a deposit.

We fill up quickly during certain times of the year, so we suggest you make reservations well in advance.
