Check in

You and your guests are welcome to arrive any time after noon on Friday.  If you need an earlier time, or want to come a day earlier, we can discuss at time of reservation. 

Check out

Sunday check out time is flexible, we can discuss at time or reservation. 

Minimum Weekend Rate

Smaller groups are welcome; however, a minimum of 4 people will be required to reserve the house for an entire weekend.  If you have less than 4 people in your group, simply divide $400.00 by how many are in your group to get the price per person.    If your group is smaller than 4 we can also try to combine your group with another small group to bring the per person cost down.


We can comfortably accommodate 8 guests for a weekend.  Each will have their own crafting station but bedrooms will need to be shared.

Payment Methods

Cash, Check, Credit Card and PayPal are all acceptable methods of payment.  If paying by credit card, processing fee may be added, and there will be a $30.00 fee for returned checks.  

Gift Certificates

You can purchase gift certificates for future stays or gifts.  Please specify at time of reservation if you are paying with a gift certificate.  Certificates do not expire and cannot be redeemed for cash. 


  • Within 10 days of making a group reservation, a deposit of $25.00 per person is due. If you are not sure, at the time of reservation, how many will be joining you, the minimum deposit to reserve the entire house is $100.00. The $100 deposit can then be applied to your stay. 
  • If deposits are not paid within 10 days of making your reservation, your date will be released for other guests to book. 
  • If you find that you need to change your date, more than 30 days prior to check in, any deposits paid can be refunded or used to hold a rescheduled date. Individual deposits are also transferable to other guests.

Final Payment

Final payment is due 14 days prior to your scheduled visit.

Cancellation & Refunds

  • Reservations cancelled more than 30 days prior to your scheduled check in date, are eligible for a full refund of any money paid or money can be applied to hold a rescheduled date. 
  • Reservations cancelled between 30 and 15 days prior to your scheduled check in date, are NOT eligible for refund of deposits unless a replacement group can be found.  However, your deposit can be applied to another available weekend.

Most of our croppers set up a meal schedule prior to arrival so that meal duties are shared.  For example, if you are planning 4 meals for the weekend, you could assign 1-2 people per meal to plan, prepare and handle clean up.  Kitchen includes electric stove w/oven, 2 microwaves, full-size refrigerator, 12 Place settings of dishes, silverware, toaster, crockpot, coffee pot, Keurig, pots and pans.
