Participants can decide on their own accommodations, or visit Solvang Inn and Cottages and give them a call to receive an especially reduced rate for WCI participants. Daily rate includes continental breakfast at a local Danish bakery. Ask about available transportation from LAX, Santa Barbara airport, and other airports in the region.
The Landsby Hotel also offers a reduced rate for WCI participants. Rate includes full breakfast at the hotel restaurant. The hotel is close to the Solvang Inn and Cottages and is within walking distance of the training venue. You will make your own reservation directly with the Hotel/Inn. Do not do this online as you will not receive the discounted rates. Please call and let the Hotel/Inn know that you are a participant with West Coast Institute/Felicia Carroll.
You can also reserve space at any location of your choice. There are many options available within the Santa Ynez Valley. Camping is also an option.
Participants in workshops or trainings in other locations will be notified of lodging options with confirmation of registration.
