This is a wonderful opportunity for us to be able to stay here. Samedan is barely 5 miles from St. Moritz, and these prices are unbelievable as this we're talking about high tourist season in the most expensive region of Switzerland.
The vacation home is a former Engadiner Herrschaftshaus, loosely translated as a manor, and still has some of its original character
preserved inside. We will be sharing the home with the OLG Huttwil, which did not get enough of its own members to sign up and now has 30 empty beds.
I can't find any pictures of the beds, but it'll very likely be youth hostel style dorm rooms with bunks. On the floor plan I'm seeing rooms with between 5, 8, 12, 14, and 16 beds each.
It may be important to note that the home will be available for both JWOC

The club is planning on providing breakfast and dinner to its members, and has invited us to join in too. The food will be prepared communally, with everyone pitching in at some point or another. I don't have specific details, but I do know that we will be expected to take over some duties in the kitchen, which would include cooking, prepping, and cleaning up afterwards, a few times while we're there.
