WORK ON YOUR OWN PROJECT

As we’ve mentioned before, accommodation and meals are at your own expense at Makers Escape. If you would like to stay or enjoy an evening meal or two we strongly recommend that you book in advance.

Accommodation

Altitude on Monville

If you want to stay for a night or a few days at Montville (or nearby), here’s our tips:

  1. Altitude on Montville – this is an excellent place an is about a 300m walk from Montville Village Hall (workshop venue). It’s perfect if you want to share with someone or if you want to indulge in a little luxury for yourself.
    Best of all . . . you get a 5% discount if you book online and enter “ministry” in the Promo Box.
    You can check it out and book online here:

  2. Montville Mountain Inn Resort – even closer than Altitude! This offers motel-style  accommodation with single, double and family rooms. If you want to stay here, we strongly suggest that you book directly with the resort (cheaper and better than using those accommodation service websites).
    You can check it out and book online here:

  3. Montville Real Estate – these guys are excellent for sourcing holiday accommodation. They have a large selection on the books, some in Montville and some in the surrounding areas.
    You can see the listings here:

We have used all of these businesses in the past and found them to be very helpful.

Dinner

We’ll be having dinner each evening (Friday and Saturday) at Altitude on Montville. You are most welcome to join us so we can get to know each other a little better – it will be fun. Be sure to book though :-)
