Companion Rate Information

Do you have a spouse or companion joining you while you enjoy your retreat? Your companion is invited to share in the beauty of the Wild Rice Retreat experience, share meals with you, and take advantage of the peaceful yet breathtaking Lake Superior views, Wild Rice Retreat amenities and many Bayfield activity options while you focus on your retreat.

Companion Rates are valid for a spouse or significant other attending with a paid retreat registration. The Companion Rate includes lodging for the additional person. The booking of a private cottage is assumed. Requests for two couples wishing to share a cottage should be made directly with Wild Rice Retreat. The companion rate also covers meals for the additional person and includes the same meals offered as part of the regular retreat schedule (breakfast and lunch each day and one to two dinners, depending on retreat length and format).

Retreat program time is not included in the Companion Rate, though the additional guest is welcome to use the Wild Rice Retreat facilities and amenities as long as retreat activities are not disturbed. Nearby Bayfield offers a plethora of activities; learn more by visiting www.bayfield.org. Companion rates apply to those 18 years and older and are limited to one companion per registered retreat guest.
