Group Reservations

William Penn House is able to accommodate groups of up to 30 persons. If your group would like to stay here, please contact us as soon you have definite dates and know how many beds you will need. If we have space, we will send you a contract to return to us within thirty days along with a 30% non-refundable deposit.

Group rates range from from $45 to $33 per person per night depending on the size of the group. The cost to rent the whole House (not including the kitchen) is $1,000.

We also have a special family rate of $150 per family per night for a family of 4.

In addition to lodging, we also coordinate educational and service-learning programs for groups.  For more information on program options, click HERE, or contact Program Coordinator Naomi Madaras ( with any questions you may have.
