Because of cancellations due to Covid - 19, Georgia Lodge is enacting the following policies:
For groups who already have a reservation for the summer weeks, they may opt from the following -
1 – Keep the deposit with GL and use it for your stay in 2021. This would guarantee that you would have the same week already reserved and paid for.
2 – We will happily refund all or some of your deposit. You must keep at least half of the expected amount on file with us to guarantee your reservation for 2021.
3. Use it to pay for a new reservation on a date after local restrictions have been listed. That date is impossible to predict. Should it include other 2020 conferences, groups with current reservations will of course have precedence. We are open year-round for retreats.
4 – We would welcome you to consider donating a portion of your payment to Georgia Lodge. Summer income represents about 75% of our annual budget.
Because of the need for deep and thorough cleaning for the rest of 2020, we will by doing all that we can to keep a full week between groups staying at the house later in the summer and in the fall. We will also need to abide by local regulations on short term rentals.
Please check our website regularly for updates on times that may be available to rent, post pandemic.
Suffice it to say, we did not have a plan for a pandemic in place previous to this crisis! Work with us as we get through this together. Safety is our primary concern.
Georgia Lodge has served as a home away from home in Montreat for over six decades. This blip on the timeline is a hurdle, not a chasm.
