If you would like to make a reservation, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org specifying your desired dates of check-in and check-out and which house you would like to reserve. The calendar on the reservations webpage shows the availability of both houses–unavailable dates will be marked throughout the calendar for each house separately. Because there are two houses on the Sanctuary, it is possible that your stay in one house may occur on the same dates as guests in the other house; but we assure you that the prairies, hills and skies are vast and your sense of solitude on the 5,000-acre Sanctuary will not be diminished. While overnight guests are staying in either house, no other visitors will be granted access to the property.
