It is always best to make reservations as early as possible. We will confirm your reservation once we receive your request based on availability. We do NOT require students to stay for the entirety of the term. You may arrive/depart at any time within our open term dates, however we do require a TWO NIGHT MINIMUM stay.

If you are joining us for the entire term, please note that all term dates given above are INCLUSIVE. We cannot accommodate people arriving before or staying after the dates published. If you are staying through the end of term, you should plan to depart L'Abri before lunchtime on the last day of term and make your travel plans accordingly. Lunch and dinner will not be served on the last day.

Space is limited so if your schedule changes or you have to cancel for any reason, please let us know as soon as possible so that someone else might be able to take your spot.

NOTE: Due to limitation of space we cannot offer accomodation to family and/or friends who may be dropping you off or picking you up.


The cost to stay at Southborough L'Abri is $30.00 per night (US FUNDS ONLY). All fees are to be paid upon your arrival. For longer term students (more than one month), fees can be paid monthly at the beginning of each month, and the first month is due when you arrive.

Fees include 3 meals per day, a bed (with sheets, blankets and pillow), towels, laundry, etc. We accept cash and US checks (made out to "L'Abri Fellowship"). We accept credit/debit payments through Pay Pal, however a 2% charge will be added for this payment method.

L'Abri is a faith-based organization that runs on an extrememly small budget. Due to this, we are not able to offer scholarships to cover student fees. If you would like to come to L'Abri but finances are a concern, please contact us BEFORE booking a reservation.

While you are here, our lecture library can be accessed through any "smart" device (phone, tablet, laptop). However, we also have MP3 players that you are welcome to use during your stay. We collect a $25 deposit for the MP3 players (cash or check) that will be returned to you at the end of the stay when the MP3 player is turned back in.

Please see About Your Stay for more details.
