More Great Reasons to Plan your Vacation to RDC!


Off Season New Guest Incentive Program

We are offering great vacation deals that could save you 10% on your week long stay at RDC. If you introduce a new family to RDC (or a family that hasn't been here in the past five years), and they rent a cottage for a week or more (during our off-peak season weeks), both you and the new family get 10% taken off of your cottage lodging bills. Each new family is required to go through the same seniority based reservation process as our returning guests. This incentive does not apply to stays of less than one week or if new guests are sharing a cottage with a returning guest. This year, off-peak season weeks run from June 1 to June 26 and September 5 to September 17. If you wish to participate, please give us a call and we will be happy to assist you. Please note that the dates of the offer are already discounted and that the combination of discounts may not exceed 40%.

Staff, Shareholder & Neighbor Appreciation Week(s) continue in 2020

A Staff, Shareholder & Neighbor discount of 10% will apply for weeks 2 and 3; and a 20% discount for weeks 1, 12, 13 and 14. For our purposes, a neighbor is considered anyone living in a Squam Lakes watershed town or in a town abutting one of these five watershed towns. Please note that the dates of this offer are already discounted and that any combination of discounts may not exceed 40%.

Woodland Cottage Rates

(June 1 - June 26, September 5 - September 14)

To provide a lower cost alternative for our guests, We offer a cottage rental category called Woodland Cottage Rates. During off-peak season weeks, we are offering a 20% discount for cottages that are located further from the water. The Woodland Cottages are Sheltering Pines, Hemlock Lodge and Montvert in Rockywold; and Park, Bell Tower, and Maurer in Deephaven. See RDC Camp map for cottage location. Please note that some of the dates listed above are already discounted time periods. Be aware that any combination of discounts or vacation deals may not exceed 40%.

Calm Squam Week

Squam Lake takes on a different character after Labor Day. With schools back in session, most visitors have departed and boats are largely absent. RDC becomes a more peaceful place as well, as occupancy drops sharply. Those who do visit - mostly couples without children - enjoy one of the best times of the year in the Squam region, with warm days and cool nights, perfect for evening fires. To encourage more couples to visit RDC at this special time, we will again be offering an extra incentive to spend a few days with us. In addition to our normal 20% discount at that time of year, we will make our three and four-person cottages available to couples at the two-person rate, subject to availability. This offer is good from June 1 to June 19 & September 12 to September 17.

This retreat is different in that it is small (roughly 15 writers), and almost all attendees have other careers and families, and need inspiration and time to write. Says a previous attendee, “It’s amazing how much meaningful exchange about reading and writing can be packed into one weekend, with hours left over for swimming, kayaking, hiking, and (literary) charades in the evening.” Learn how to begin or complete your novel alongside aspiring novelists of all ages and backgrounds. Visit: amitygaige.com or send an email to: novelwritingworkshop@gmail.com.
