Here are all of our nasty ol’ rules and regulations!

  • Deposit is $175.00 per spot. (1/2 of full price)
  • Once the retreats are full you can be put on the waiting lists if you’d like. When filling open spots from the waiting list, reservations are given to the first person paying for the spot. If you receive a phone or email message telling you that a spot has opened up, that does not ensure you of the open spot as we will keep moving down our list. Only payment of deposit or full payment by credit card will reserve your place at the retreat.
  • Your receipt will be mailed to you, along with an information packet telling you what you should bring with you and what to expect, also information about our airports, hotels, directions to the studio, restaurants, and shopping once you get here.
  • Retreat Deposits are non-refundable within 60 days prior to your retreat date, and NO money is refundable within 30 days prior to the retreat date. You will be contacted at that time.
  • You'll need to pay for the retreat in full 60 days prior to the retreat date. We will email or call to remind you but if we cannot reach you by phone or email we will be forced to cancel your spot and find a replacement.
  • If you need to cancel within 60 days prior to the retreat start date, you can either find someone to take your place at the retreat, or forfeit your deposit. We must be notified immediately of the replacement's name, address, phone number, and email address. It will be your responsibility to collect payment from your replacement as NO REFUND will be made from Crabapple Hill Studio.
  • If cancelling within 30 days prior to the retreat, the full amount is non-refundable.
  • Sometimes when you cancel early we can move your reservation to a different retreat, but within 30 days that is impossible.
  • There can be no "surprise" guests accompanying you as we will not have room for them. No children or pets are allowed. Please keep cell phone use to a minimum during the retreat out of courtesy to other attendees, and there is no smoking allowed on the premises.
  • If you're on a special diet, you're welcome to bring food and drinks of your own. We have a refrigerator and microwave available for you to use.
  • There will be no substitutions made for retreat projects. Our Fall retreats are usually Halloween themed, and our Winter retreats are usually Christmas themed.
  • If you're bringing any type of service animal, we will need a doctor's letter in advance and we will call their office to verify.
  • Your choice to reserve a spot will show your acceptance of these terms.
  • Don't we sound bossy?

We hope to see you at one of the retreats! We'll have SO MUCH FUN!!!
