Harp Camp Acommodations & Costs - July 3, 2017


Accomodations & Costs

We are looking forward to having harpists and harpers of all ages and levels, with lever or pedal harps. Sleepover campers will check-in at the Acorn Inn in Nellysford, VA on Sunday evening, July 30th and check-out Thursday Evening 8/3 or Friday morning 8/4. Commuter Campers are invited to join us on any day they prefer or for all four days.

The Acorn Inn is in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains (40 minutes from Charlottesville, VA), 3 miles from the town of Nellysford. We stay in a charming converted stable with a grand meeting and performance gallery, a bright and cozy living room and a large deck.

Three private rooms with double beds are still available. The charming cottage across the road sleeps several but is full!  Check with Virginia Schweninger for info regarding charming country B&B's nearby.

Your harp will remain in the large gallery room where rehearsals and most workshops take place. You will never have to lug it around, up steps or take it outside . . . unless you choose to!

Continental breakfast is provided by our Innkeepers, Kathy & Martin Versluys. All other meals will be catered by Claudia Gibson, to include healthy and tasty food from local farms, orchards and kitchens. For those who have special dietary needs, please let us know in plenty of time. You may use the kitchen if you have a tricky diet. Drinks and snacks will be available.

Plan to arrive Sunday late afternoon July 30th. Early arrival can be arranged with the Inn. Meals start with our pizza party on Sunday through continental breakfast on Friday.
