Welcome! We’re delighted to host your retreat stay!

Our comfortable 12-bed retreat center offers the opportunity to create, relax, enjoy meals, and learn and laugh with friends. We’ve sought to provide your own personal space to sew, quilt or scrap-book so that you can relax and enjoy your passion.

The retreat center has four bedrooms – two with two twin beds and two have four twin beds. To ensure your comfort, we make each bed with clean fresh sheets, two pillows and either a soft cuddly blanket or a synthetic down comforter. Fresh towels – bath, hand and wash cloth - are also provided for use in any of the four showers.

Our retreat center boasts two separate sewing areas. The west Studio accommodates six people with six individual six-foot tables, a custom 4’x8’ cutting table and two big boards with Rowenta irons. The east side Gathering Room can seat twelve for sewing/scrapbooking and also has two ironing and two cutting stations. All cutting and pressing stations have been elevated to countertop height to make it less stressful on your back and the pneumatic adjustable swivel chairs make sewing a pleasure. There are large design walls and plenty of electrical outlets. Free wireless internet is available in all locations.

You’ll have access to a new kitchen – including range and oven – along with dishes, cookware and utensils. A microwave, coffee pot and crockpot are available for your use as well as a full size fridge and ample counter space. Groups can sit down at the kitchen table to share your home cooking or you can truly relax and order out. It’s a great place to unwind with friends. All we ask is that you clean up after yourself.

The retreat center is open 365 days a year!
