YOUR CLEARING EXPERIENCE REIMAGINED

CALL 920-854-4088 TO RESERVE YOUR PLACE.

From now through December 19, The Clearing is open for a new program called Clearing Retreats. These personal retreats are available to everyone.

Clearing Retreats include lodging and meals. Meals are delivered to rooms. The options we are offering include 3, 4 and 5-night stays, with double and single rooms available. (Limited dorm options may be available. Call for details if interested.) Check-in is on Monday for 5-night stays, Monday or Tuesday for 4-night stays and Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday for 3-night stays. The latest check-out is Saturday morning.

Your first meal is supper on the day you arrive. Your last meal is breakfast on the day you leave. All meals will be delivered to your room by a member of the kitchen staff. Breakfast will be delivered at 8:00. When the staff collects your breakfast dishes, around 8:45, they will deliver your lunch. It will be a picnic box lunch. You can take it with you if you are planning to be out and about in Door County for the day, or store it in your cooler in your room or in the refrigerator in the Root Cellar until you eat. Supper will be delivered at 5:30. For breakfast and supper, there will be a first bell, the “call to meal bell,” 15 minutes before each meal is served. A second bell, at the above times, will announce that the meal is being delivered to the rooms.

To register for a Clearing Retreat, call 920-854-4088. Rooms are available on a first-come-first-served basis.

Rest assured that we are taking all necessary precautions regarding the safety of our guests while they are here. We are using just half of our rooms any given week. This allows us to let rooms rest for 72 hours before a member of our housekeeping staff enters for cleaning. All rooms will be thoroughly cleaned before they are occupied again and will have a Safe Seal attached to the door after cleaning to ensure that no one has entered since it was cleaned. And, of course, our kitchen staff will do all that is necessary to ensure that all safety protocols are followed regarding food preparation and meal delivery.

Unfortunately, given the situation, the Lodge, all classroom buildings and the Cliffhouse will remain locked. We believe this is necessary for the safety of all concerned. Guests can make an appointment to shop in the Bookstore, although the Jensen Center Visitor Center is otherwise closed to the public.

Those who have never stayed at The Clearing need to know that this is not a hotel, at least not in the sense that most people think of a hotel. The rooms do not have a television and are not air conditioned. Internet service is available, but not in the rooms. For wireless internet service, guests have to go to one of the covered porches at one of the classroom buildings. Also, there is not a “front desk” at The Clearing where a staff member is available around the clock. The office staff is available from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., and the kitchen staff is on hand from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. For maintenance problems and other issues after hours, staff telephone numbers are posted in each room.

The Clearing staff and Board of Directors believe that these retreats are the best way for us to offer a meaningful “Clearing experience” while helping sustain The Clearing during this challenging time.
