Mountain Meadow InnMountain Meadow Inn
The Mountain Meadow Inn offers a special package to workshop attendees. As both a convenient and economical option we offer a standard reservation with the Mountain Meadow Inn at the time of workshop registration.

The Mountain Meadow Inn offers a comfortable, countryside bed-and-breakfast, and at less than a mile from the Archie Bray, is within walking distance. A standard reservation includes a single room preference, arrival the day before the workshop begins and departure the day after the workshop ends. If you choose to stay at the Mountain Meadow Inn, your stay would include a private room with a shared bathroom down the hall, hot continental breakfast, airport shuttle and a morning and evening shuttle to the Bray studio. Kitchen and laundry facilities are also available. Common areas within the house are co-ed including shared bathrooms, although bathrooms are private and lockable when in use. Shared rooms are also available at a lower rate. Roommates in shared rooms will be same gender unless requested otherwise. Shared rooms are of limited availability and, like all housing options, are available on a first-come first-serve basis. Smoking and pets are not permitted at the Mountain Meadow Inn.

Once we submit your reservation, you will be contacted by the Inn to confirm your stay. Payment will be made directly to the Inn and will be expected at the end of your stay.
