Lodging and Venue Information
The Clair Tappaan is a historic lodge now owned and operated by The Sierra Club. Lodging is hostel-style accommodations with rustic style beds with mattresses. Guests supply their own sleeping bag or sheets/blankets. There typically are extra blankets, however, in the event that the temperatures dip during the night. Room sizes range from small single rooms to dormitory-type rooms with multiple bunk beds. Hot showers are available in centralized restrooms.
As with any hostel-type of accommodations, guests are asked to perform a light, quick, and easy chore (such as sweeping the dining room, or carrying serving dishes to the kitchen, etc.) after breakfast and after supper.
The Lodge also has a library, which will be available for acoustic guitar jamming or, if no musicians are present there, for reading or quiet time. There is also a lovely area in front of the lodge (actually on the backside of the Lodge) where lunches can be eaten or just chat with other Roundup guests. Day hikes can be easily made from the Lodge as well. Take a break from the music and get in touch with Mother Nature in the forest surrounding the Lodge.
Temperatures in September are still quite warm during the day, but the temperatures will drop down into the 40’s or high 30’s at night. Bring short sleeve shirts for the days and sweaters or windbreakers for evening.
Three meals are included in the price of a night’s lodging. Breakfasts are usually hearty with eggs, potatoes, pancakes, fruit, etc. Lunches are brown bag lunches with the Lodge providing the ingredients, such as cold cuts, cheese, PB&J, fruit, chips, cookies, and drink. Evening meals are a variety of hot entrees depending upon what the Lodge has planned, from chicken to pasta to Mexican fare. The food is hearty, good, and plentiful. Vegetarians will also find plenty to eat.
Lodging at the Clair Tappaan is available at $55 per night (plus taxes). Again, this includes three meals a day. Reservations should be made in advance by calling the Clair Tappaan Lodge at (800) 679-6775.

What's On Tap?
We will be setting things up on Friday afternoon, so music can begin as soon as we have enough musicians present to start playing. We will have the exclusive use of the Lodge for this event, so we will be able to play as late into the morning hours as we desire. Because of the special event on Saturday evening, we really do want to take full advantage of the Friday night time slot. Music will start up again immediately after breakfast on Saturday and continue on throughout the day until supper time. The event of our special guest, Peter Asher, will then be Saturday evening, followed by some of our usual festivities. And then more music into the early morning hours. Finally, on Sunday morning, we try to get some last tunes in before everyone heads out for home.
