Fee Schedule

We hope that your time here is restful for your soul and spacious for your imagination. To assist you in planning your stay, here are our current rates for guest lodging and use of facilities, and information about meal options. Also, please know that we recognize the realities of tough economic times and don’t want finances to stand in the way of a Prairie Oaks experience. Please contact us if you’d like to discuss the possibility of group or individual scholarships.

Please note: A deposit is required in the amount of your facility fee (see the first chart, below) to secure your reservation.  If your reservation includes overnight lodging, the deposit will then include the facility fee plus 50% of your overnight rate. The balance will be payable at the time of your stay.  We will refund half of your deposit if you cancel your reservation 30 or more days in advance; the entire deposit is nonrefundable if you cancel less than 30 days in advance.

One of the delights of being on retreat at Prairie Oaks is the chance to bring groceries and prepare your own meals in the well equipped kitchens at Harvest House or the Farmhouse, which many groups find is great way to build relationships.  If you prefer you can call for delivery or take-out from a variety of Belle Plaine restaurants; menus are included in the guest directories at each house.  Alternatively, for a modest charge of $30 per person per day you may also order an assortment of items that may include local cheeses & meats, crackers, fruit, yogurt, mixed nuts, healthful muffins and breads, granola, fair-trade coffee, tea, cocoa, and juice.  Simply let us know when you make your reservation if you would like to take advantage of this option.
