Several different kinds of housing are available, including cottages with porches and fireplaces or the larger Pennsylvania and Maryland Houses. The two-story, 50-room Maryland House was built in the early 1850’s. Both Maryland and Pennsylvania Houses provide more traditional accommodations with a double room and private bath. Cottages differ in size and consist of private bathrooms and shared baths. Shrine Mont follows The American Plan (1 night stay + 3 meals).
