What Pendle Hill Provides
NB: due to continued public health concerns, Pendle Hill has made the difficult decision to close our campus to outside visitors until the virus is contained, and at least through 10/01/2020. You can read the letter from our Interim Executive Director about this decision. We will announce our opening date on our website and e-newletter at least two months prior to welcoming visitors. Until we know our opening date, we will not be able to accept any sojourning reservations. Thank you for your patience and understanding in these times.
Our guest rooms are simply furnished with bed, desk, chair, and lamp. There is drawer space and closet space in each room. All rooms have windows that open and access to controls for heat and air conditioning. Most of our guest rooms share a bath with one or two other rooms. Bathrooms are family style, not dormitory style, and are a few steps from your bedroom door. Some rooms include a wash basin. We supply sheets, pillow, pillowcase, bedspread, blankets, towel, and washcloth. Liquid hand and body soap are available in bathrooms.
Each building where guests are housed includes a kitchen area with facilities for making tea and a small refrigerator. Some have a microwave oven. There are no facilities for guests to cook their own meals. Laundry facilities are available for a fee in Main House Basement, where there is an iron and ironing board.
What to Bring
Please remember to bring personal toiletries and an alarm clock if you need one. You may wish to bring a water bottle to fill with filtered water in our Main House or Brinton House kitchen. Comfortable shoes work best, and dress on our campus is casual. A flashlight is helpful for walking at night. Don’t forget to pack an umbrella or rain gear. Out of respect for those with allergies, we ask that you refrain from using scented grooming products – perfume, aftershave, hairspray, deodorant, lotions, etc. – while at Pendle Hill. If you typically use a strong perfume, you may need to wash these clothes before packing. For this reason as well as our fire codes, the use of incense and scented candles is prohibited.
