Book the Whole Retreat for a "Private" Group Weekend
(Up to 14 persons)

Friday (11am)-Sunday(3pm) Package (3 day, 2 night) $1400 ($100 per person for 14 persons)

Monday(11am)-Thursday(3pm) Package (4 day,3 night) $1400 ($100 per person for 14 persons)

All whole retreat bookings must be created by calling the booking specialist directly. (989)834-3044.

Each group should nominate a GROUP LEADER that will ensure information is transmitted to all group participants. This Group Leader will work with our booking specialist to ensure that deposits are collected from all participants by either mailing checks or calling with credit card information. Upon entering the retreat, this group leader shall reside as Queen of the Crop and should be showered with love, gratitude, chocolate, and probably margaritas if your group was a handful.

We know it is hard to pick a weekend that everyone can commit to, but we are unable to hold rooms without a deposit. If your date is more than 8 weeks out, we can do a temporary hold for 7 days with a $100 paid deposit.

If we do not have a firm commitment and full deposit (1/2 of total due) at the end of the 7 days we would then make the rooms available for other bookings.The deposit may be applied to a future date within 6 months.

We do not require a deposit to be mean, we promise. We have had numerous groups hold dates for multiple weeks and then cancel. The deposit ensures that dates will not be held without intent.


Whole Retreat Deposits

When packages are booked less than 30 days from your stay, full payment will be due at registration time. When packages are booked over 30 days in advance of the date of your stay, half of the balance will be due as a deposit at registration time with the balance due 30 days prior to the stay.

Cancellations

If cancellations are made less than 30 days from registration, money will be refunded minus a $50 per person cancellation fee.  If cancellations are made more than 30 days before your scheduled stay, money will be refunded minus a $25 per person cancellation fee. Half of these fees can be applied to an additional stay within a 6 month period.

** We know emergencies occur and sometimes cancellations are necessary. Please know our cancellation fees only help us to cover the costs associated with cancellations. Because of the type of facility we have, it is very hard to fill spots last minute. If you are able to fill your spot for the weekend, no fees will be charged. If emergencies arise last minute and you are unable to make it, you must call our booking specialist at 989-834-3044. ALL NO SHOWS FORFEIT THEIR PAYMENT.  


Can I rent if I'm not a crafter and just want to vacation in Ovid? 
The answer is "maybe."  We are not a hotel. We are not open to the public for public use. But, if you would like to rent the whole retreat for a specific period, we would be happy to talk to you about the possibilities. For instance, if your daughter is getting married and you would like to rent the entire retreat for guests for a Friday-Saturday, then absolutely. Not a problem. $1400 would give you 14 beds and the full use of the facilities. Overnight stays for any other reason than to utilize the crafting space for its specific intent must be approved prior to booking rooms online. In order to book rooms for events other than crafting, the whole retreat price would be required.


All rooms are subject to the Michigan 6% use tax.

*We accept credit cards, PayPal, personal checks and money orders.  A $25 fee will be charged on all returned checks. No reservations will be held without a deposit.  

*If you do not rent the entire retreat, we will leave the weekend open for others to attend until we reach the maximum capacity.

*Rooms are not held without the appropriate deposit.


GIFT CERTIFICATES AND COUPON CODES
If you have a general gift certificate purchased in our store or online from the Inspiration Station website they can be used towards a retreat stay. Please call our booking specialist to book your weekend instead of using the self serve online booking system to ensure accuracy, as they will need to be entered manually into the booking system.

If you have won a complimentary gift certificate or discount, reservations must be made through the booking specialist and these MUST be applied at the time of booking your stay. They can not be applied at a later date. They can not be combined with any other discounts or coupons. Please note, full group rentals are at a discounted price, and no additional coupons or discounts may be used. Only one coupon or complimentary gift certificate can be used per room.

Occasionally we will offer discount specials to increase our advertising efforts. (Normally these discount codes will be given out at local crops or distributed via Facebook or our store newsletter)   Please Note: these codes MUST be applied at time of booking your stay. They can not be applied at a later date. If you are unsure how to apply the code in the online booking system, please call our booking specialist and she will be happy to assist you and ensure you receive the discount when your rooms are booked.


The Booking Specialist Phone Number for Gift Certificate and Coupon Code redemption, general questions, or booking issues is 989-834-3044  Please do not hesitate to call anytime. 

A few extra details we should mention--we joke about these issues but these are all questions we recieve. We have made these policies for the benefit of all involved.

No smoking. Any guests smoking in the retreat will be asked to leave and would not receive any refund of the their fees.
No Pets or Children. No dogs, cats, hamsters, snakes, rats, children, etc. If they walk on 4 legs or they can not drive themselves legally to the retreat, they are not allowed to stay at the retreat. This is for the comfort of those with allergies and for those who are looking for a weekend away from motherhood and want adult conversation. (If you have rented the retreat in entirety and your group is in agreement, then participants may be slightly younger. This is ONLY allowed if you have rented the entire retreat and your entire group is in agreement. We will require a letter from the group leader requesting approval in advance stating that all group participants are in agreement. Inspiration Station will not be responsible for family disputes regarding such issues. They will be directed to the Group Leader.)
No Extra Guests We have a 14 person occupancy limit, even if you book the whole retreat, we have a 14 person limit. We are not allowed to have overnight guests over the 14 persons or we exceed what our city has agreed to. Failure to comply with this rule may be grounds for termination of the retreat stay. Sorry. We can't lose our retreat insurance.
