I'd forgotten that I did this Guest Room Fees survey, and pleasantly surprised to find this results summary still on my hard drive. Above my signature below I noted that I posted this on cohousing-l on May 28, a month after I put out the little survey. I'm posting this to the list again as well as to you personally, because it occurs to me that folks in other communities might be interested.

Here is the report from my little survey of guest room user fees in
cohousing communities:

I received responses from 27 different communities, 9 of which do not have guest rooms or do not have them yet. Five communities do not charge for their guest rooms although a few of those accept donations.Two communities charge $5 p/night, one charges $7. three charge $10., two charge $15., and
two charge $25.

Other arrangements:

1-family and friends are free, cohousing folks $10., general public $25.
2-personal related users $25, unrelated strangers $50.
3-$25. plus $15. for cleaning each night up to five nights, $1. each
additional night.
4-each household gets seven free nights per year
5-each member household gets five nights a year free then pays $10/night

Thanks to those who contributed their communities' information for this survey.
