Please call the hotel at 1-800-336-3983 or visit to book a room. Please let them know you are attending the SocialBeadia Coastal Maine Bead Retreat as we have a block of rooms reserved and remaining rooms may show as not available if you attempt to reserve outside the group.  This is a highly desired boutique Inn.  The Inn can only hold the block of rooms until the end of November.  After that, they will be released to the public.   If you are seriously thinking about attending the retreat but not ready to make your retreat reservation, I highly recommend that you reserve the hotel room early for best rate and availability.  The hotel does require a deposit to hold your room, however will refund the deposit minus $25 cancellation fee if you cancel within 31 days prior to the event.


A non-refundable deposit of $250 is required to reserve your spot in the retreat. You must pay the balance of $400 by January 1, 2020.  If you do not pay your balance by the due date, you forfeit your deposit and your spot in the class. 

You have the option of paying just the deposit to hold your spot at this time, or paying the total amount due. Your order number serves as your confirmation number. For any questions, please contact us at or call 603-734-5505.

After paying your initial deposit to hold your spot, monthly payments are available.  If you select this payment option on the registration form, you will be sent an invoice from my accounting software each month starting the month after your deposit payment until December 2019.  All payments are due by the 15th of the month you receive your invoice and may be paid securely online using a credit card or PayPal.
