The Book Project Writers Getaway

$0.00 Members
$0.00 Non-members

This retreat, for current Book Project participants and alumni, involves three nights at the charming Hand Hotel in Fairplay, Colorado, writing, thinking, reading, and sharing work with your fellow classmates. The Hand has great mountain views and plenty of space for laptops, notebooks, and lounging by the fireplace. Lighthouse faculty and staff will be on hand (pun intended) to help coordinate social activities. 


The Writers Getaway is optional and open to all Book Project graduates and current participants. Food, lodging, and transportation are the responsibility of the attendees. Room sharing and carpooling encouraged! 


You must call the Hand directly to reserve and pay for your room: (719) 836-3595. Say you’re with Lighthouse. Registration via the Lighthouse website alone does not guarantee your participation.


The Hand currently has no vacancy that weekend. Other options include the Riverside Inn Hotel, the Mountain Comfort Bed & Breakfast, and Airbnb or VRBO in the Fairplay/Alma areas. If you’re staying at the Hand, breakfast is included. Those staying off-site can purchase breakfast in advance for $8/day.
