Guest Room

When Dacie was alive she frequently allowed students and alumni to stay in her house when they visited campus, and she was pleased to have students' parents and friends stay with her when they visited. In the spirit of continuing Dacie's tradition, Dacie's bedroom is used as a hostel for visiting alumni, prospective students, friends, and visiting artists and folk singers. The room, managed by the student residents, is very simple but it does include two twin beds and a bathroom/shower. The suggested tax-deductible donation is $35-$45 per night for one or two people.   Donations help support special projects and programming for the house.


Requests for reserving the room can be made by contacting the student residents of the house by emailing   (If you don't get a response within a day, email )
