1. How far is The Lodge from any major airports?
We are a 15-minute drive from the Hattiesburg-Laurel Regional Airport (PIB), 1.5-hour drive from the Gulfport-Biloxi International Airport (GPT), and 2 hours from the Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport.
2. Do you offer ground transportation?
We are more than happy to offer shuttle service from the Hattiesburg-Laurel Regional Airport for an additional fee.
However, it's important to note that due to our rural location there is no public transportation allowing you to leave The Lodge to explore the area. If you are arriving by flight, we highly recommend that you rent a car and we are happy to assist you with this process.
3. How many people will you be able to accommodate?
After fundraising and completion of our renovation and construction, we will be able to accommodate 12 people in 5 Glamping Tents and 1 Tiny House Cabin.
If we exceed our goal we may be adding additional tents, which would be added to your "Full Lodge Buyout" reward at no additional fee.
4. Do you accommodate remote workers/ is there reliable wifi?
While we do have wifi in certain public spaces around the property, there is no wifi and limited cell service in our Glamping Tent area.
Our wifi is also not the most reliable or strong enough for extensive or speedy downloading/uploading.
5. How often will you host retreats?
This will depend on the response we get from our first visiting artist retreat! If there is a wide range of interest we would love to host at least once a month.
Interested in hosting or leading a retreat of your own? Let us know at [email protected]!
6. Do you get the funds even if you don't reach the full goal?
YES! This is one of the many reasons we chose to host with IFundWomen! Any amount that you contribute becomes directly available to us allowing us to get to work ASAP.
