Is there any way that one can retrieve a deleted page and its contents?

Answer

Unfortunately, no. Once a page (or a guide or box or link, etc.) is deleted, it's gone for good. (That's why we add a cautionary note in red on the Delete Page screen. ;)

Do I have *any* options?

If you have the Add-on Module, there are two options that could potentially save your skin if a page is deleted and you want it back.

  1. Create Guide Backup
    If you created a guide backup at some point before deleting the page, you can use that backup to recreate the content in your guide. The backup is an HTML download of your guide; basically, the "print friendly" version. You cannot upload it back into the system, but you can refer to the content as you recreate the page in your guide.
  2. XML Export of your site
    If you downloaded the XML Export of your site, you have all of your data in XML format. You can search this file for your guide/page in order to restore your deleted page. You cannot upload it back into the system, but you can refer to the content as you recreate the page in your guide.
