CNCH returns to the wonderful Asilomar Conference Grounds in 2017

Reserve your room now with Asilomar registration!

Celebrated as Monterey Peninsula’s “Refuge by the Sea,” Asilomar is a breathtakingly gorgeous 107 acres of ecologically diverse beachfront land. Located in the quaint, scenic beachside town of Pacific Grove, Asilomar offers guests the simple comforts of cozy cottages and rustic lodges, and an unforgettable escape from the demands of everyday life.

Why stay at Asilomar?

In order to get the best price for the use of conference facilities, we commit to a specific number of guest rooms. It is important that you book your room and meals through the link in your registration confirmation email, on the CNCH website, or at Asilomar’s special conference reservation page at www.tinyURL.com/CNCH2017Lodging in order to get our special rate, and for us to get credit for your lodging. This also allows you to be in the center of the action, and to take full advantage of all the conference events while still being close to your workshop location.

Crocker Dining Hall is a spacious and welcoming gathering spot with 3 high-beamed ceilings, stone pillars, hardwood floors, and incomparable views of the forest and the dunes of Asilomar State Beach. Eating at Crocker Dining Hall is an essential part of the conference experience. Their daily menu highlights fresh, seasonal, local produce procured directly from a network of regional, organic farmers.

Each day, menu boards are posted at the dining hall and front desk, showcasing the meal that will be offered for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Vegetarian and gluten-free options will always be available. All you have to do is inform the attendant, and their culinary staff will be happy to fill your dietary needs.
