Reservations: 800-874-9053, group name: Model T Ford Winter Tour

Tour routes and costs will be announced soon. We hope the cost will be in the area of our previous costs: $175 per person, children will be free!

As of 8-14-2017 The "regular" rooms at the Mission Inn are SOLD OUT...leaving only a few of the most expensive suites. This is not unexpected.

Some people have booked well in advance and later discover they are unable to attend and forced cancel...due to car, family, health issues, etc. Others may have booked more than one room and discover the extras are surplus. It's unfortunate, but we have 5-8% like this every year.  

We will begin a waiting list of our registrations, for those people interested in attending but without a room. Hoping for a motel cancellation, we will offer any room that becomes available to the first person on the waiting list, then the next and so forth until the room is taken. You won't be able to pick and choose the location of the room, etc. It's a "take it or leave it" situation.

It's totally your call, until December 1st, when I will freeze the list and get on with ordering our critical items. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but there are always limits that must be imposed on tours and this year it's the size of this wonderful facility.

best regards, 

Steve and the team​
