Important! The beautiful homes on the bay that we have rented (one is named "Holy Family" and the other "St. Anne") at the Maris Stella Retreat Center are clean, cozy, and comfortable. But Maris Stella is not the modern retreat center with full amenities you may be used to. Please be aware of the following:
If you wish more hotel-like accommodations, or you wish to reserve only one night of the weekend, below we've listed several nice hotels and motels nearby which you can call to make a reservation. (Again, do not wait. September is "wedding month" on the island, and the hotels and motels fill up rapidly. If you wait until after June, you most likely would have to get a room far away, somewhere off the island.)
The following two Motels are Sponsoring Organizations and provide Discounts to our participants:
