Group Rental Rates

The cost of your group's stay at Sierra Friends Center depends on the number of people in your group, the length of your group's stay, and whether you reserve our Dining Hall and/or Meetinghouse. We charge nightly rates for all of our sleeping accommodations and overnight, day use and half-day use rates for the Dining Hall and Meetinghouse. For fee calculation purposes, "overnight" refers to the twenty-four hour period starting at the standard arrival time of 5 p.m. On the last day of your group's stay, this period ends at the standard departure time of 2 p.m., unless other arrangements have been made. Each facility rental comes with an additional nonrefundable cleaning fee.

Deposits and Payment 

Your reservation will be confirmed when we receive your signed contract and the first rental deposit (25% of the contracted amount plus cleaning fee). The second rental deposit (75% of the contracted amount) is due at least 48 hours prior to arrival. 

Cancellations 

In the event that your group must cancel the reservation, cancellation fees will apply as follows:

  1. Half of the first deposit is refundable up to 30 days after the first deposit due date listed on this contract; thereafter it is not refundable.  
  2. The second deposit is non-refundable. The two deposits are credited toward the total balance.
  3. If cancellation occurs within 30 days of the start date of the reservation, the group is obligated to pay the total amount listed on the contract, less deposits previously paid. Some modification of the refund policy may be made if the canceled dates are rented to another group.
