Lodging and Transportation

We have reserved a block of rooms at the historic Boone Tavern in downtown Berea, just a few minutes’ walk from the conference center on the college campus. We have secured excellent nightly rates, from $79 for a scholars’ special single bed to $89 for a queen single, $99 for a double, and up for more deluxe accommodations.

We will be organizing transportation to and from the Lexington, KY and Cincinnati Airports and will advise all members and registered participants of van or limousine schedules and rates as soon as our arrangements are completed. Watch this space for further information.

Room Sharing

The cost for a guestroom with two double beds is USD108.90 per night total including tax. Please us if you want to find a roommate to share the expense of a room at the Boone Tavern with you. We will forward your email to anyone else who is also looking for a roommate, and vice-versa, so that you can make arrangements with them.

Please note that payment of the registration fee does not guarantee your room at the historic Boone Tavern. You must make your room reservations directly with the Tavern by calling their reservation number, 859-985-3700, or going to their web site at Please let the clerk booking your room know you are with the Cormac McCarthy Society conference sponsored by Berea College to secure these very special rates. We urge you to act promptly, as the hotel is very beautiful but not very large. Though our rooms are being held until February 6, 2013, they may well be sold out by then.
