Our 2019 Rates

Thank you for considering the Refuge for your retreat, special event or family celebration. We are exuberantly seasonal, meaning that we have just 120 days per year to welcome new and long-standing clients plus our own programs. To encourage the full use of that season, we have different rates and group size minimums:

Spring season is May 1- July 1:

$125 per person per night (including 3 meals), minimum of 10 people.

High Season is July 2- September 15:

$2,860 per night including all meals, up to 22 people.

Fall is Sept 15 – Closing (around November 1):

$125 per person per night, minimum of 10 people.

  • Every group is our only guest and is welcomed to our home and our farm with great attention and intention. This means you are the only group staying with us and have exclusive use of our facilities and the full attention of our staff.
  • We meet and welcome every group, help you get settled into the Refuge, and orient you to the significant history of the farm and the glorious and inspiring place you are staying. We offer many other ways to connect your group to this land. Our team is present on the farm 24 hours a day.
  • Overnight accommodations at the Refuge at Knoll Farm are single, double and family sized yurts. We can accommodate up to 22 people.
  • Six of our yurts are private, with one double bed. Four yurts are shared, with two double beds, and our family-sized yurts have four single beds. Beds have pillows, sheets and blankets; we recommend you bring a sleeping bag for the spring and fall, as nights can be chilly.
  • Yurts and pathways are lit at night with solar power. A nearby beautiful cob and stone bathhouse has hot showers, flush toilets and a wood-fired hot tub. The bathhouse and most of the yurts have electricity. The private yurts are more secluded and without electricity.
  • 3 meals per day are provided with a focus on farm fresh and locally sourced food and served in our historic McLaughlin Barn, 1⁄4 mile from the overnight accommodations. Our chef is able to provide and plan meals for your group taking into account all dietary needs.
  • Several outdoor fires are lit by staff each night for your group to enjoy.
  • Many additional services are available to your group including curriculum design, retreat facilitation, classes in body movement, and tours of the farm. Please inquire further.
  • The farm has an extensive trail system and is within minutes of many other first-rate recreational opportunities in the Mad River Valley.
  • Groups staying at the Refuge have access to our 160-acre working farm including:


McLaughlin Barn: Our largest barn is 10,000 square feet and has 7,500 square feet of meeting and dining space.
