There are a few options for indoor housing this year:

Sofia House Dorm

sophia house

Sophia House, located one mile from Twin Oaks, offers dorm style lodging and is an additional $35/night per person. This can be added when you purchase your registration ticket. If carpooling cannot be arranged to/from Sophia House, the gathering will arrange a shuttle.

The retreat center sleeps 32 people in two lower-level dormitory rooms, accessible by stairs or elevator and outfitted with bunk beds. There are three bathrooms–two of which are directly across the hall from the bedrooms–and two showers. One shower is fully accessible.

Because Sophia House is built into the side of a hill, there are lovely views of a pond and access to the outdoors from the dormitory rooms. Sofia House is fully wheelchair accessible.


Aurora Shared RoomDSC_0009

Aurora is the Twin Oaks Community Visitor Cabin, conveniently located about a quarter mile from the conference site, about a tenth of a mile from the parking lot, and a quarter mile from the river.  It consists of 5 rooms with a variety of beds and bunks in each, one full bathroom and one half bathroom, and a living room.  Folks who are ok sharing with another roommate pay $35/night. This can be added when you purchase your registration ticket. Email us at if you’re traveling with one or more people and would like to room together or try and fit more than 2 people in a room. There is no air conditioning, but fans are provided.


Aurora Private Room

Folks who would like their own private room in this shared house pay $45/night. This can be added when you purchase your registration ticket. Limited availability! Email us at if private room slots are full but you’d like to be on the waiting list in case of cancellations.
