We are able to offer housing at a greatly reduced rate should you need it. The cost is $50.00 per night per bed. You will stay with other participants in one of two downtown historic homes. In some cases, it may be necessary to share a room but not a bed. You need only what you would bring to a hotel, as amenities such as coffee, towels, soaps, linens, etc. are all provided. The homes are side by side and located within walking distance to downtown food and shops. The house has a modestly stocked kitchen for you to use.
Transportation to and from the airport is approximately $9.00 by Uber and $15 by Taxi.
