Current as of: January 2nd, 2017


  • Visa and MasterCard are now accepted for the hotel bill, however the gift shop, snack bar and book store do not accept credit cards. So, you will need to bring  a few checks to the island to pay these bills. Credit cards are also accepted for donations to the Star Island Annual fund and Endowment fund.
  • As in the past, you can charge incidental fees -- lobster dinner orders (apx. $20), conference photos ($10 for one color photo), row boat & kayak rental , etc. -- to your hotel bill. 
  • You will need cash for the snack bar, donations at social hour, a trip to Appledore Island  and personal debts.  
  • The boat fare and the parking fee of $10 per day/per car ($80 for the week), will be added to your hotel bill.

LOAS has a silent auction each week, the proceeds of which benefit the Lee Reid Scholarship Fund. Conferees bring items with them to donate to the silent auction, which is usually set-up during the week in Newton. You can bid on items until social hour on the last evening. You may pay for any items that you win with either cash or by check.

There may also be a "Pel Auction", where the working community of the island (the Pelicans) will auction off various and unusual service items, such as a morning tea service, laundry services, guided tours of off limit places, a dinner on the front porch and many more.
