Applying is easy! The house is available for writing retreats from mid-September until late May each year. Check the calendar here for availability.

Then, simply submit the application form below.


  • $400 per week for individual writers
  • $350 per week for GrubStreet Members (not sure what this is? Visit GrubStreet)
  • $325 per week for GrubStreet instructors or staff
  • Multiple weeks will be discounted by 10% of the total– 2 weeks for an individual writer would be $800-$80=$720
  • Additional nights beyond the first week can be prorated.

Once your application is approved (I do my best to respond within a day or two), I will send you payment information. Payment is due upfront, via PayPal or by check. Once I receive your payment in full I will block the calendar for you and forward you everything you need to know to make the most of your retreat.

For writing partners or small groups: Remember that writing friend you made at MacDowell or Yaddo? The one you exchanged work with? You likely won’t be able to go back to Macdowell or Yaddo at the same time, but you can book a house together at Hemingway House. Or maybe you have bonded with a few writers at GrubStreet and you would benefit from time away together?

The house has 4 bedrooms (1Q, 1K, 2 twins, 2 bunks)– very comfortable for 4 writers, doable for 5, 6 is the absolute max. If you would like to be considered as a pair or a larger group, please ask each person to apply separately with a reference to each other (or a group name) to identify the fact that you would like to come together. Groups are limited to one week. Six writers max.

But don’t worry– if you apply by yourself, you will have the house all to yourself!

Group Pricing:

  • $300 per week for each writer
  • $250 per week for each GrubStreet Member (not sure what this is? Visit GrubStreet)
  • $225 per week for each GrubStreet instructor/ staff member
