Lodging & Accomodations
Once the Faire gets going, it takes on a life of its own and for this reason, many attendees prefer to stay on site to enjoy the full experience. It is easier to attend the evening activities as well as the sunrise activities - not to mention be there for the delicious breakfasts that our fantastic cooks create. Normally we have several options for staying on site: camping, camper vehicles, or cabins. However, due to COVID-19 safety protocols, cabins will be unavailable to reserve in 2022. Camping will be the only option for staying on site this year. For those of you who would like to stay offsite, there are plenty of hotel and Air B&B options in the surrounding area as well!
Many people prefer to bring their own accommodations for the Faire. We have plenty of camping space to do so. There will be some designated areas to camp, however, you are free to camp almost anywhere as long as the flow of the Faire will not be interrupted by your spot. Please do not camp near or on the beach or near the community fire as those are spots for all to enjoy. There are plenty of quiet places to pitch a tent. Camping stoves are allowed.
Off Site Accommodations
We have a block of rooms reserved at the Comfort Inn in Chelsea, just minutes from the Faire, for those who would like more modern accommodations. Click here for their website. Their phone number is 734-433-8000. They will hold rooms at a special rate for us at $149 per night (regularly $199 per night). Reservations must be made before August 7th, 2020 to get the special rate and to ensure a space as it is a football weekend. Please reference the Great Lakes Herb Faire to get the discounted rate. There are also plenty of other hotels in Chelsea, Ann Arbor and Jackson. There are also offsite campgrounds in the area that you can check out. The Waterloo and Pinckney recreation areas are not far, both of which have modern and rustic campgrounds.
Due to COVID-19 safety measures, cabins will not be available for 2022. Cabins will be reserved for housing teachers and their families this year.
