Accomodations: There are 5 types of rooms available in 2 different buildings at Wisdom House:

Rooms with 1 or 2 beds with an attached private bathroom (“ensuite”) These spaces are currently filled. Contact if you wish to be added to the waiting list for a private and/or ensuite room.

Rooms with 1, 2, or 3 beds which have a shared bathroom accessed from the hall on the same floor.

See the rate table below for pricing. It’s important that you make at least 2 choices on your registration form. Bedrooms in the Farmhouse are located on the second floor and require going up 1 flight of stairs. Bedrooms in the Main Building, which has an elevator, are on the 3rd and 4th floors. The two buildings are located close to each other. Most of the bedrooms, most of the rooms suitable for workshops and jamming, the dining rooms, and the concert/dance auditorium are all in the Main Building. If you request a room in the Farmhouse on your registration form, be sure to indicate at least one other room choice in the Main Building. If you choose a 2-bed or 3-bed room and do not designate your roommate(s), we will assign one (or two). 

Food and Drink: Wisdom House is committed to offering fresh, healthy food from sustainable sources. They have an organic garden and do not serve shellfish, pork, or beef.  If you need special accommodation for dietary practices or issues, be sure to indicate that on your registration form. If your dietary needs can’t be met, we will let you know. There are two kitchenettes in the main building, each with a microwave and refrigerator. Participants whose dietary issues cannot be addressed by the kitchen staff can prepare their own food there. Tea, coffee, and water are available throughout the weekend. Responsible consumption of your own alcohol is permitted. There are refrigerators in which your drinks and snacks can be stored.

COVID-19 Policy for the 2023 NorthEast Squeeze-In
Approved by the NESI Board on May 15, 2023

This policy may be revised if the incidence of COVID-19 changes, if the CDC revises its recommendations, or if the state of Connecticut changes its COVID policy and requirements. If this policy or any future policy makes it impossible or unwise for you to attend the 2023 Squeeze-In, your registration fee will be fully refunded if a refund is requested within 5 days of the publication of this or any revised policy published in the future.

The changes to our previous policy are based on the assumption that we are a community that can be counted on to take care of its members. We know there is a range of views in our group about what constitutes reasonable and data-driven choices when it comes to vaccination and masking. We are aware that the severity of COVID has become less for many people who are infected, especially those who are fully vaccinated, and that hospitalizations are down. We also know that there are still people who suffer long-term effects and some who have died from it.

At the Board of Directors meeting on May 15, 2023, the following policy was approved:

1) We strongly recommend (but do not require) that all attendees be vaccinated and have all of the boosters for which they are eligible.
2) We strongly recommend that all attendees have a rapid or PCR test for COVID before arriving at the event site, especially if you have not been vaccinated and/or have been a recent participant in a group gathering at which you might have been exposed to COVID.
3) We strongly recommend masking whenever possible by anyone who is at higher risk for infection and/or may be in close contact with friends or family members who are immunocompromised.
4) We ask that you have an effective mask on hand throughout the weekend. One will be provided in your registration packet. If a workshop leader asks participants to mask, please comply or find a different workshop to join.
5) We ask that you respect and support other participants’ choices when it comes to masking and vaccinations.
6) Most important, we want you to stay home or leave the event if you are sick or showing symptoms of COVID. We will arrange for a refund on request if you cannot attend or need to leave early. We want to see you and everyone else at the Squeeze-In again next year.
