Personal Retreats

The personal retreater program is a great way to visit the island – Please check back here in the spring for more information and how to register. Thank you!

Star Island offers Personal Retreats as a way to come spend a night or two on the island without attending a conference. We can approve a Personal Retreat based on availability after the conference registration period has ended.  A form will be available on this page to make a request.

2023 season rates will be available in the spring and are expected to be about $235 per person per night. Most rooms have twin beds and use shared bathroom facilities. Typically, special accommodations are not available for Personal Retreats. 

Personal Retreat rates are per person and include sleeping accommodations and meals while you are on Star Island.   Ferry transportation to and from Star Island is not included.  Ferry services to Star Island are located in Portsmouth through the Isles of Shoals Steamship Company and at Island Cruises in Rye.
