When you select a package with lodging, we handle the reservations for you through a special rate agreement with our partners. Lodging check-in is the day before your first field trip, and check-out is the morning after your last field trip. Additional days may be requested, but depend on availability. All lodging options are on a first-come-first-serve basis. Check-in is between 3-5pm and check-out by 10-11am. Late check-in/out details must be arranged with the provider and we'll send contact information to you prior to the Festival. Additional and specific lodging information will be provided in late March or early April.

Your choices are private deluxe cabins at Hemlock Haven Cabins, and Adventures on the Gorge, ACE Adventure Resort or the hotel option at Oak Hill Holiday Lodge. Country Road Cabins are currently unavailable. Cabins are fully furnished log-sytle homes in secluded settings with private outdoor hot tubs and modern amenities. Internet isn't available at every provider but is usually in a nearby lounge or welcome center. Maps/directions are provided to registered participants a few weeks prior to the Festival. You may consider bringing a non-birding friend on your retreat to share your cabin. To find lodging on your own click here for the New River Gorge Visitors Bureau list.
