Frequently Asked Questions
Our seasonal retreat center on Lake Andrew, the Village, offers 15-20 private guest rooms. Each room has 1 full and two single beds, sleeping 3-5 people. The room also has a private bathroom and a small table and chairs. Each sleeping room has a door that leads to the adjoining room. This allows for the possibility of the adjacent room being booked by the same parties and expanding the usable space. It also works well for large families to spread out and have additional space and beds. Rooms are not air-conditioned, but box fans are in each room. Linens are provided.
The Village Lodge is a separate building just a few steps away from the sleeping rooms. In this building, you will find many small, comfortable gathering spaces and lounges and a dining room, as well as a large basement that can be set up to fit your needs. There is a loft that has comfy couches and chairs which works great for family gatherings. There are two private bathrooms on each main floor of the Village lodge (one on the main level off the kitchen, one downstairs in the basement). The Village Lodge is air-conditioned.
The Village Lodge has a large commercial style kitchen available for guests to prepare their own meals. Off of the kitchen, there is a large dining room.
Food service is also an option, with our kitchen staff preparing the food out of our licensed kitchen and bringing the food to you. Our normal meal times are 8:30 breakfast (or 10:30 brunch), 12:00 lunch and 5:30 supper, but times can be arranged to fit your group’s schedule. Menus are set by our kitchen staff and we work hard to accommodate dietary restrictions.
Off of the Village Lodge is a grand deck with many adirondack chairs available to sit in and enjoy the view of the Lake. There is a beautiful grassy hill and lawn area just below the Village Lodge, with a wooden playground for the kids. Beyond this, you will find your own sandy beach leading into the waters of Lake Andrew. There is a dock available for your use (there are two boat landings near Shores of St. Andrew in which guests can launch their boats. The nearest one requires a State Park permit). There are fire pits available for guest use (one even on the beach!) and we provide the firewood. To see our list of equipment available for your use, click here.
