+ What are meals like at Easton?
Meals are provided 3 times daily: breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Breakfast is usually served continental style, with assorted breads, bagels, and cold cereals available, along with a hot cereal, yogurt, a hot breakfast entree, and fresh fruit. For some retreats, the last day will feature light snacks in the early morning and a late morning Brunch. Lunch and dinner are usually hot meals with fresh bread and salad available. We serve meat, usually in the form of beef, pork, chicken, turkey, and fish. A vegetarian option is also available at each meal; we ask that this be reserved for those who request vegetarian meals, as there is not enough of the vegetarian option prepared for everyone to eat. Snacks such as cold cereals, fruits and nuts, along with coffee, assorted hot teas, chilled water, and iced tea, are available 24 hours a day in the dining room. Please note that we can not always accommodate special dietary requests for food allergies. If you have specific food allergies, we suggest you contact us ahead of time and bring some special food for yourself to supplement any food that we serve which you can eat. Refrigerator space can be provided for you if needed to store your food. Should you have any questions about our meal plans, please contact the front desk at (518) 692-8023 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
+ What is Easton's booking & cancellation policy?
When you book your room a $100.00 deposit MUST be made to reserve the room preference you want; the balance must be paid 10 days before the event. Should you need to cancel your reservation for any reason, you must do so at least 1 week before the start of the program, and pay a $100 non-refundable fee for processing. If you cancel less than 1 week before the program starts, there is no refund of the full payment.
+ I am a trans man (born female). Will I be welcome at events marked "All Men Welcome"?
Yes. In Easton Mountain's mission statement we say that we value "Hospitality that welcomes all others as sisters and brothers." We encourage you to be open about your trans status, particularly with hosts and facilitators. Let us know what your needs are as a trans person. Our mission statement also states that we value "The expression of love, intimacy, and erotic communion." and to this end our camp programs include workshops involving nudity and erotic massage. If you are drawn to participate in one of these programs, we urge you to speak to the facilitator ahead of time so that he can incorporate your participation in a way that creates a safe environment for all.

+ What should I bring with me when I visit Easton Mountain?
Easton Mountain provides bedding, pillows, sheets, and towels. You will need to bring personal toiletries (including soap, shampoo, toothpaste, etc.), shower shoes (if desired), flashlight or lantern for late-night walking, and comfortable shoes to walk around in. While we do have a limited supply of sunscreen, bug repellant, ear plugs, and rain gear, you may want to bring your own.
+ What type of clothing should I bring to Easton Mountain?
The weather can vary quite a great deal each day here at Easton Mountain. Please be prepared for weather that is hotter or colder than expected.
Springtime: Make sure you have a light jacket or sweater as it can get chilly, but can also get quite warm. Summertime: Although we can have very hot days, it can also get chilly at night, so a light jacket or sweatshirt is always good to have. Fall: Although temperatures are quite cool, just like in Springtime it can vary, so be prepared to take off or put on a layer or two. Winter: You definitely want to be prepared to bundle up and have a good pair of boots, gloves, hats and scarves. It can get quite cold and snowy in the winter.
+ Where can I park my car?
There is a parking lot where all visitors can park their cars.
+ Can I just stay for a night or two?
Although we are based around specific programs, there are times when we can accommodate overnight stays. Not all events appear on our website calendar as some of these events are rentals to outside groups. If you are interested in staying at Easton Mountain for a short stay in between programs, please contact our Front Desk at email@example.com
+ Can I come for a Personal Retreat?
There are times when we need to be alone, to be away from the demands of our lives - to be in a place where we can relax, let go, and be still. Easton Mountain offers an ideal environment for a personal retreat. Guests may explore our two hundred acres of paths and trails and enjoy the energy of being in nature. You can read quietly, write, collect your thoughts, pursue your art, sit in contemplation or walk through the woods. A retreat can be an opportunity to spend time with the outside world at a distance or to bicycle through the countryside surrounding Easton Mountain. For those who want a little more structure for their personal retreat, an Easton Mountain community member functions as the Personal Retreat Director. Various services may be available, such as massage, reiki, coaching, energy healing and spiritual direction. The fees for these services are not included in the fees for the retreat. Please contact our Front Desk at firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a telephone interview with the Retreat Director who will help you create the retreat that's right for you. All Personal Retreats are subject to space availability - not all events appear on our website calendar as some of these events are rentals to outside groups.
