Seasons is located on the grounds of the Fetzer Institute. Our overnight guests stay in one of four buildings, each containing six private rooms. Groups convene at the Meeting House, a short walk down an uncovered path from the lodging units. The Meeting House is accessible with room keys at all times. 

Areas of the Fetzer Institute Administration Building available for guest use include the Meditation Room, Fitness Center, Reading Room, Commons, Guest Office, and display areas. 

Rooms are furnished with a queen-size bed, desk, and a reading chair. A clock radio with MP3 Player input, coffee maker, mini-fridge, umbrella, hairdryer, and toiletries are available (no television). Accessible (ADA compliant) rooms are available upon request. 

Due to Michigan law, smoking is prohibited inside all of our buildings. There is a designated outdoor smoking area under the covered portico next to the kitchen at Seasons. If you have questions about these restrictions, please contact your meeting coordinator.
