Room Options

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.
