The Schoodic Institute offers a variety of on-site accommodations and dining options for conference participants. All lodging reservations are managed directly by the Institute’s hospitality staff, not by conference staff.
The Schoodic Institute’s hospitality staff are available by phone or email to answer questions and help with the reservation process.

The conference’s unreserved rooms were made available to the public on June 15. After that date, rooms may only be reserved on an “as-available” basis.
Lodging at the Institute is best described as “housekeeping” cottages. These are not hotel rooms. Formerly base housing for a U.S. Navy installation, the units have been renovated and upgraded to be both comfortable and attractive.
Lodging options vary in price based on the accommodation selected and the sharing option chosen; however, special rates have been negotiated for conference participants. The option to share an apartment with others (you can have a private bedroom) allows you to share the cost. It also offers the opportunity to coordinate with friends and come as a group. Please refer to “Rooms” for descriptions of all available lodging options.
The Schoodic Institute will manage all lodging reservations. Lodging will be assigned in one of the Schoodic Institute’s two- or four-bedroom apartments, cabins or efficiency suites based on number registered, requested roommates or mobility/accessibility needs. Please note that there is a 9% Maine state lodging tax. Lodging prices can range from $30 per night for a shared room in the bunkhouse all the way to $210 per night for an entire private 4-bedroom apartment. Contact the Schoodic Institute hospitality staff for specific options and costs (see contact information in sidebar).
If you are staying overnight at Schoodic, please note the following room check-in times and locations.
Room and meal cancellations are subject to the Schoodic Institute’s cancellation policy. The deadline for canceling lodging or meal is Thursday, July 7. The Schoodic Institute will refund your payment minus a 10% bookkeeping fee (10% of your total amount). Any refunds will be processed by the Schoodic Institute and returned to you by check.
