"What an awesome place. It’s comfy-cozy, very welcoming, and has the nicest kitchen that provides all the gadgets that you can use to do your own cooking, which is a pleasant perk. It’s quiet and in the country but still close to everything. I will definitely be going back!"

frequently asked questions
About Crafty Chics
Do you offer guided workshops, or can we craft on our own?"Every stay at Crafty Chics Cottage Retreat is self serve - meaning you are free to pursue your own creative passion! We supply the space and the tools, and from there, you call the shots. If you want to have a super seasoned crafter come in to lead a class though, we are happy to connect you with our friends at The Crafty Scrapper. They're pretty great, and they can show you how to make some really awesome projects.
Are there spa services available?Yes! If you and your squad want to pamper yourselves, we can arrange for an excellent massage therapy team to visit the retreat, and provide in-home massage therapy. Trust us when we say that a day of crafting, hot tubs, and massage is pretty much as good as it gets. Contact us for details!
How is the craft space set up?Our specially designed craft studio is 1400 square feet of creative goodness. The studo has 36 tables. Each workstation is comprised of a six foot table and a four foot side table - so each crafter has two tables! The studio is bright and airy, and offers an array of crafting tools. There are flannel project boards; a quilting cutting table; a classic Cricut machine; a hotshot with plenty of dies and punches; and much, much more. The studio has a high speed wi-fi network, a coffee bar, and its own powder room. Plus, each workstation has four outlets and a USB jack - so you can keep your own supplies powered up. Also, its workstation has its own cupholer. And did we mention the back porch and hot tub are just outside the door?
