A Little More About Where You'll Be Staying

Ahh. Accommodations at The Clearing can best be described as inviting, cozy and simply furnished. The Clearing’s retreat-like environment is meant to help guests reconnect with the peace and calm of the natural world. Therefore, you won’t find tv’s, radios, clocks or telephones in any of the rooms. What you will find, however, are things like: comfortable beds, solid maple writing desks, modern plumbing fixtures and tranquil views into cool forest foliage.

Below are some helpful tools for you to explore The Clearing’s charming accommodations. Take a look, and if you still have questions feel free to give us a call…

COVID-19 Room Updates:

For safety reasons, but also to help simplify cleaning (Because of COVID-19, much more time is spent cleaning rooms than in the past.), we have removed certain items from the rooms. These include pillows, quilts, Afghans, extra blankets, clothes hangers, ice bucket, personal care products (shampoo, body wash and hand wash), the basket that covers the tissue box and the air freshener.

For the convenience of our guests, some items have been added in each room—a single-serve coffee maker, a pot for heating water for tea, containers of regular and decaf coffee, a selection of tea, sweeteners, creamer and coffee stirrers. Also, there is a folding card table in each room that guests can set up for meals.

Given what has been removed from the rooms, we recommend that guests bring the following items:
• Pillow
• Soap
• Shampoo
• Clothes hangers

Guests might also want to bring the following items:
• Hand sanitizer
• Disinfectant wipes
• Extra blanket
• Flashlight
• Mosquito repellent
• Portable reading light
• Walking stick (if you plan to hike while you’re at The Clearing)
• Cooler (The ice machine in the Root Cellar is not in operation. For those guests who need ice, it is available at the Pioneer Store and the Last Stop gas station in town.)
• Also, since we only provide hot beverages (coffee and tea), please bring any other beverages you would like, such as water, juice and soda.

Please give our office a call if you have any questions about our accommodations. 920-854-4088

One of The Clearing's goals is to help people get away from the "noise" of the modern world for the duration of their stay. To this end, rooms do not include televisions, radios or telephones. Also, they do not include refrigerators or microwaves and are not air-conditioned, although fans are provided and most rooms have a cross breeze.

Cell phones should be turned off, or at least the ringer should be turned off, while at The Clearing. Laptop computers, radios and televisions are not allowed in the Lodge.

Smoking is not allowed in any of The Clearing's buildings, including all guest cabins. Smoking is only allowed in the campus parking lot and the employee parking lot.
