Lodging-Rooms are available for $79.99 plus tax per night if you decide to stay at the on-site hotel.
Call the hotel direct to book your room at 812-937-1902.  Make sure you Mention you are with the Doodlebug Retreat!!  The Lodge will still have Holiday World Rates, so you have to be with the retreat to get the reduced price for the weekend!  

Need a Roommate...or two??  We have set up a RETREAT EVENT page on Facebook, just for this retreat!  This is a GREAT place to post if you are looking for someone to share a room with!   We always have gals looking for a roomie to split the costs with...and you are in there SOOO very little anyway!  
Don't want the fun to end?  Stay an extra day!!  
If we have enough people interested, we will rent the room an extra day so you can continue to crop till you drop!!..but if you are interested in doing that, let us know and if we get enough people to pay for that extra day, we will book the room for the remainder of Sunday and then Monday until around lunch! The cost for that would be $20 per person and we
would need to have at least 10 stay to book the room!

Fine Print....Please be aware that The Doodlebug will not be able to stay for this extra day, but we were able to get the room reserved for behave yourselves!! Bahahah! We will also need at least 10 people to sign up for this option for us to be able to cover the room fee.

Can we leave our stuff sit out all weekend?...YES, no packing up until Sunday!  Don't worry, we lock the room each night so your crafty stash is SAFE!
Can I bring something that needs to be plugged in?...YES, but make sure you bring an extension cord!!  We are in a banquet room, so the plug-ins are far along the walls and we cannot guarantee you a spot by a plug in.  We suggest you bring a surge protector, an extension cord and painters tape for the cord!
