Lodging and Meals 

On-Campus Lodging:
Lodging for workshop students is available on the Peters Valley campus in our rustic farmhouses. The accommodations are basic and “no frills”. Rooms have two twin beds, share a bathroom and are not air conditioned. There are a very limited number of single rooms, rooms that do have air conditioning, and two rooms that have a private bath. Additional fees are charged and reservations are made on a first-come, first-serve basis by calling the office; payment is due in full to guarantee your reservation. Peters Valley also offers a “youth hostel-style” dormitory that is available for matriculated college students only. Pillows, linens, and towels are provided in all dorms. These historic farmhouses are not handicapped accessible. Each house has two floors, so if you require a first-floor room, please be sure to let the office know at least one week prior to your arrival. The houses have at least two steps leading up to the entrance.

Price for Lodging:
Basic Shared Room: $45 per night

All Peters Valley lodging facilities have fully equipped kitchens which students staying in the building are welcome to use. We recommend that you bring your own groceries, since the nearest stores are about 15 minutes by car from Peters Valley. Roommates in shared housing are always same gender, unless your roommate is accompanying you and you specifically request to share a room. Common areas of all houses are co-ed, including the shared bathrooms. Pets are not permitted and there is no smoking allowed in any of the Peters Valley buildings. No overnight camping is permitted on the Peters Valley Campus. Wifi is available in most dorms and at the Dining Hall.

There are some beautiful Bed & Breakfasts in the area as well as a few motels and campgrounds. Most are located in the town of Milford, PA which is about 15 miles away. See our Off Campus Lodging information below for those options.

Freshly prepared meals are served in the Peters Valley Dining Hall during workshop sessions. Lunches are included in the tuition cost for the workshop for all students. Breakfast & dinner can be purchased separately as a meal plan according to the number of days of the workshop. Students are encouraged to bring along snacks to enjoy when the dining hall is closed. Students staying off campus can purchases breakfast & dinner at the dining hall (pay as you go). Dinner is available the evening before the workshop begins for an additional cost of $15 and may be paid at the door. Dinner is not served on the last day of the workshop. Meal plans should be paid for at the time of registration so that our staff can properly plan. We are unable to refund unused portions of meal plans.

If you have special dietary requirements, please notify the Peters Valley office at least two weeks prior to your arrival. Some dietary needs can be accommodated with prior notice; however, we may be unable to accommodate specific food preferences or dietary requirements. Please be sure to let the office know at the time of registration if you have any food allergies. There are some restaurants near the campus, but most are between 5-15 minutes by car and may not be convenient for students staying on campus.
