Review of The Clearing

The Clearing
Reviewed 9 September 2012

Our first (but not last) visit. Very friendly & helpful staff. We arrived by luck on non-classes day & could wander the beautiful campus. Now we want to take some arts & crafts classes. Our neighbors do & recommend them & the bed & board facilities here. Diana O.

My wife and I have been going to The Clearing for over 20 years, she for the annual Chamber Music workshop, I to relax, unwind, and revel in the peace. Every week during the summer, The Clearing conducts one or more arts/crafts/musical classes. The classes are first rate, modest sized, low pressure, and non-competitive. The setting is gorgeous, in the midst of woods and meadows on the Green Bay bluff. The cabins are simple but comfortable, each with their own bath. The meals are top-quality home cooking served family style with attention to taste, variety, and healthy eating. The staff is warm and accommodating. A week's vacation, including room, meals, and a great class is under $1,000 (way under $1,000 if you stay in the multi-person dorm). When we leave The Clearing at the end of our week, we start counting the days till we can return.
