Our facilities are available for group and individual retreats, workshops, or other events.

Starland Community is a home for its residents, and a quiet retreat for members and guests. As a private not-for-profit organization, Starland Community's residents and other volunteers serve as the keepers of the land, and hosts to its members. Our funding comes from member dues, fees for overnight accommodations, resident rents, and donations.

Average temperatures (F): January: High-50; Low-30;April: High-80; Low-50; July: High-95+; Low-70; October: High-80; Low-50. Winters are often quite windy and cold, sometimes a trace of snow falls; Spring and Fall are the best times to visit, with balmy warm temperatures, few rain storms, and calm air. Summers can be hot, windy, and dry. Generally, be prepared for changes in weather whichever the season.
