Lodging FAQs

1. What should I expect as far as accommodations are concerned? Falls Creek Conference Center is dormitory-style lodging with bunk beds. You will need to provide your own sleeping bag/bedding and towels. Those staying off-site at hotels or other accommodations will not receive a discount. However, if you are interested in hotel accommodations, below is a listing of two area hotels, and a quick internet search will yield many good options in the Ardmore area. Please note: This contact information is provided for your convenience and in no way is a recommendation from the BGCO or BGCO Women’s office. Mountain View Motel // 2741 U.S. 77 Davis, OK 73030 // 580.369.2321 Canyon Breeze Motel // 4244 Hwy 77 S Davis, OK 73030 // 580.369.2022

2. Do I have to reserve a cabin for my church, or how do I reserve lodging? The BGCO Women’s office reserves and pays for cabins for the weekend. We make cabin assignments by group and those assignments will be sent to the group leader ahead of the event. Simply select on your registration form or online registration that you would like us to “assign you lodging” and we will place you in a cabin that we have reserved for you. Some churches have their own cabins on-site and their ladies choose to stay there. There is no discount for choosing to do so, however it is the responsibility of the group leader to secure keys for the weekend and ensure that the cabin is ready for your ladies. Please mark on your registration form or online registration that you are staying in the cabin owned by your church. NOTE: We are unable to offer a registration discount for churches staying in their own cabins or providing their own meals.

3. Who will be in the cabin with me? No matter when you register for the retreat, you will be placed in a cabin with other women from your church. Some churches bring large groups, some less than 5 people. If you have a small group, you will be placed in a cabin with several other church groups. There will however be plenty of space for you to spread out and have your own section of beds for your church group if you desire. We are unable to guarantee any special spaces or assign bunks in the cabins. Beds are first come, first serve. We do ask that everyone give special preference for bottom bunks to those who are unable to climb to top bunks.

4. Can I come to Falls Creek early and stay Thursday night? We have not secured lodging for our conference attendees for Thursday night before the retreat. If your church owns a cabin on-site, or you are renting a cabin for your group and would like to come to the conference center early, you need to contact Falls Creek Conference Center directly and let them know of your plans. The cost to come early is $10 per person for insurance and is payable to Falls Creek Conference Center in their office upon arrival. This is not included in your registration cost and cannot be paid at registration.

5. Will I know my cabin assignment ahead of time? Leaders of groups of 10 or more will receive an email prior to the retreat detailing their cabin assignments, however we do not have the ability to individually inform each of our 2200+ attendees where they will be staying in advance. Thank you for being gracious and understanding. You will receive your cabin assignment the day of the retreat at check-in.

6. Can you guarantee me a bottom bunk/cabin without stairs/cabin close to the tabernacle? There is a line on both the online and mail in registration where you may indicate your need for special accommodations if you have a disability. We will do our very best to accommodate each request, however, due to the cabins that are available, we cannot guarantee special lodging requests. We do ask that ladies in each cabin give bottom bunk preference to those who are unable to climb to the top bunks.
