About the Space

  • The space is a renovated 1840s house. We have tried to retain the house’s character whenever we could, but it’s been completely updated with new plumbing, electric, HVAC, flooring, and paint, and the first floor is ADA (wheelchair) accessible. There is a ramp into the first floor, so you can roll your machine cases. 
  • There are 7 bedrooms (accommodating 15 people) and 3 shared bathrooms.
  • There is a main crafting area (about 50′ x 30′) which allows for up to 15 tables (6-foot each), and we have new rolling chairs and floor outlets as well as new lighting. There is also a comfy seating area on the first floor and multiple design walls, cutting stations, and ironing stations. Bring your own cutting mats, rulers, and rotary cutters, and irons.
  • The first floor also contains a full kitchen, a dining space, an ADA accessible bathroom (with roll-in shower, toilet, sink, and storage for your toiletries), and 3 bedrooms (2 doubles and a triple). 
  • Upstairs, there is another full kitchen, a dining room, a living room, 4 bedrooms, and 2 bathrooms. There is also a washer/dryer. There are two single bedrooms upstairs (one with a double bed) and two double rooms (one with a twin and a queen bed, the other with two twin beds). One bath (tub/shower, toilet, sink, space for toiletries) is accessible via the hall, and the second bath (shower, tollet, sink, space for toiletries) is attached to one of the single rooms (the Red room).
  • You can rent either space or both spaces. The upstairs space is great for families, game weekends, or crafting that doesn’t require large tables (e.g., knitting/crocheting).
  • The downstairs space is great for scrapbooking, quilting, yoga, wellness, and painting retreats — anything that requires a larger space or tables. 
  • There is high-speed wi-fi throughout the space, and a Chromebook and projector are available for rental.
