We’ll be basing the event and most activities on the grounds of the friendly and accommodating, Birchwood Inn. Located on the famous Tunnel of Trees Scenic Road, it is a good base and the nearest lodging option near the new Photostock Workshop facility. However, there are other options in the area from motels to camping. There are also those who go in on vacation rentals as well. If you have several people, this can be a budget minded way to go. Several links follow and should help you find a place to stay.

To be right on top of what’s going on, book your rooms at the Birchwood early. Mention Photostock and get a 10% discount on your room rate. If coming with a friend, consider bunking up together to save. It’s all one big party and all rooms open onto a central green area, patio and pool.
