We have percentage discounts that trigger with group minimums of 61, 120, 180, and 240 persons, respectively. Obviously, the larger MINIMUM group size you commit to, the better base pricing you can qualify for. Additional variables like the number of nights, number of meals, and lodging type, are also factors in your final group quote.
Even for smaller events (i.e. Starting with retreats of 20+ people for 2+ nights), your retreat quote will give you the option to qualify for an additional 2% or 4% discount on the event (this does not apply for certain retreats staying in cabins). These extra discounts are based on your final count. The 2% discount will apply if your final count is at least the average of your Contract Min and Contract Max.
For instance, if your contract min is 20 people, and your max is 60 people, you will get a 2% discount if you have at least 40 people (i.e. (20+60)/2=40). If your contract min is 120 people, and your max is 180 people, you will get a 2% discount if you have at least 150 people (i.e. (120+180)/2=150).
To qualify for a 4% discount, your final count needs to reach/exceed 90% of your contract maximum. There are fine print conditions that apply, so make sure to talk to our sales team and/or read the details on the contract, but in general, you can earn additional discounts if your event has a good turnout.
Planning a successful event can be a lot of work. There are lots of details to manage and decisions to make. We appreciate the effort that the Group Leader puts into making the event a success, and as such, we will honor them with a FREE GROUP LEADER STAY on the event (min of 20+ persons, 2+ nights, does not apply to some cabin retreats). There is a “catch” though. For us to give this credit on the invoice, we require the following 2 things.
- Your Preliminary Retreat Schedule must be submitted at least 6 weeks before your event. It must be finalized at least 4 weeks prior to the event.
- Your Final Numbers for the event must be submitted at least 2 weeks before arrival.
Our team will work with you to try and qualify you for this discount. Having this information in this timeframe is essential for us to be well prepared for you when you arrive. The details of this discount will be listed on your contract. Feel free to also talk with our sales team if you have any questions about it.
“Off-Peak Season” dates are mid-week (Sunday-Thursday) from Labor Day to Memorial Day (excludes dates surrounding holidays), plus the first 3 weekends of December. Events booked in these times can expect discounts ranging from 10-20%, depending on the group size and duration of stay.
Groups that have a retreat package (i.e. meals, lodging, meeting space) are eligible to book activities like ziplines, climbing tower, paintball, team building, etc, at deep discounts. The discounts range from 25-65% off of the Standard rates we use for day guests. Contact our sales team for more information.
Weekend events for January thru March will qualify for discounts ranging from 4-12%, based upon group size and lodging type. Contact our sales team for details.
We offer 25% off activity pricing for overnight events from January – March. These dates qualify for 25% off of any activities that are scheduled (i.e. Ziplines, teambuilding, climbing wall, etc). This discount is applied in addition to the discounts on activities that overnight retreats are already eligible for (as opposed to our standard rates). Contact our team for details.
