1) The most convenient commercial site is Wet Mtn. RV Park & Cabins which is located directly across the street 
from the school where we hold classes.  Historically a good percentage of our students stay here. It has 23 developed
sites with water, hookups, electricity, dump.  There also tent sites which includes use of the bath house) a laundry room
and showers, and three sleeping cabins, two with a full and a twin bed, microwave and fridge; one with 2 sets of bunk
beds.  The website has full details and a good informational video.  Note: Wi-Fi is available
. 816 Main Street.

2) The least expensive accommodation is your own tent, RV or rig if it is self-contained; then you can park for free 
on our property a half mile from the school, although we must ask you to chip in on the
expenses of trash hauling
and site preparation. The amount will be nominal.  Dry camping is also an option for the
hardy souls who don’t mind
braving the chilly nights and occasional rainfall.

Contact me for more information on these two options. 
Additional options for RV/camper owners are:
Grape Creek RV Park & Campground

There are 34 developed sites and two cabins.  This is a “Good Sam” park in a scenic location along Grape Creek
(free catch-and-release fishing if you’re interested).  Amenities include free Wi-Fi.  Check out the website for details and
price (it’s just a little more expensive than Wet Mountain RV Park & Cabins).

3) Below is a list of motels, B&B's and Inns that we have spoken to.  Check out the website for pictures & more information.  Other places to stay as well as restaurants in the area are listed below.

Hermit Basin Conference Center
1699 Camino Rd, Westcliffe, CO 81252

This was the site of ROLLAND FIDDLE CAMP in 2011, 2012 and 2013, and we really enjoyed it.  It's a gorgeous setting in the mountains at 9000' altitude.  Although we have moved our camp 1000' down the mountain into the town of Westcliffe, they may be willing to provide lodging (but not meal service) to our campers if not sold out.   All rooms include a queen size bed plus a queen size bed plus a queen size sleeper, private bathroom, television, and telephone.  Free WiFi is available in the lobby.  Some have kitchenettes (sleeps 4) and some have 2 bunk beds instead of the kitchenette.  Call for pricing; it might be less than motels in town.  There's one change of linen mid-week.  The facility is a 25 minute, 7 mile drive down the mountain to the school where the classes are held.  The amenities are numerous (see website and call the office for details).

Westcliffe has a supermarket a few blocks west of the school, toward the west end of Main Street.  If you plan on buying and preparing food, this is the place to go, although you might also like to visit the thriving farmer’s market midweek on Main Street between the school and the supermarket.  The area comes alive in summertime with visiting tourists, and there is no shortage of restaurants.  Here’s a list.  Our apologies if we forgot any of them or there’s a brand new restaurant that we didn’t know about).
