******Updates on The Crafting Cottage Inn******
September 27th, 2020
Understandably, The Crafting Cottage Inn is making major changes in its operations due to the Covid-19 virus.
This is an ever-changing situation and I, along with thousands of other small inns, retreat houses and shop owners continue to learn what we need to do to adjust to what will be for all of us - our "new normal".
Currently, the Inn will not be enjoying guests' visits until at least early March, 2021.
Like all of you - I sincerely hope we will be able to craft together by then.
Here are the changes that will be implemented in the foreseeable future and could change at any time:
1) The Inn will accommodate no more than four guests at any one time.
2) No more than one guest assigned to a guest room.
3) Each guest room will have one dedicated bathroom assigned to it. Guests will be limited to use
the one bathroom assigned to them.
4) Sanitizing products will be stationed throughout the Inn for guests to use.
5) As more is learned about how to deal with the threat of the virus and welcoming crafters back to stay
and play safely at The Crafting Cottage - this page will continue to get updated.
PLEASE NOTE the check-in and check out time changes:
Check-ins for returning groups will be "contactless".
A code will be assigned to your group to gain access to the key for the Inn.
Information on the new check-out procedure will be sent to everyone in the group,
as it will also be contactless.
Check-out time has been changed to 5 PM!!! Yeah!!!!
202l RATE CHANGES for The Crafting Cottage Inn
To reserve a stay at the Inn for 2021, please note the biggest change is that to book the Inn for a weekend is one price regardless of how many guests will be staying - (four is the maximum). To add extra day(s) on either end, is also one rate per day ($100.00 to be divided by those crafting guests wishing to arrive early or stay longer).
A $400.00 deposit is required at the time of booking.
Individual invoices will be sent to each crafter to pay their deposit.
A second invoice will be sent one week prior to the guest's arrival date for final payment which will include all taxes.
A third invoice will only be sent should the crafting guest purchase products from the retail shop during her stay.
Friday check in (anytime after 1 PM) till Sunday check out (5 PM)
$800.00 + sales & room tax
Add an additional day for $100.00
All guests will have their own room and a dedicated full bathroom.
The Crafting Cottage Inn is a haven for paper crafters looking to spend two or more days crafting to their hearts' content. The inn is located in an historic home built in the 1800's in Painted Post, New York. It was involved with the Underground Railroad and has quite a history. This beautiful cottage is located in a picturesque village surrounded by a variety of historic homes ranging from Victorian style to Craftsman to Early American. Across the street is the Hodgman Park. The Crafting Cottage is in the original Hodgman House!
Thank you so much for your interest in the Crafting Cottage's Inn!
Check-in time is anytime starting from 1 PM onward on the Thursday or Friday of your weekend.
Check-out time is now extended to 5 PM on Sunday or Monday (depending on what you booked).
Your fee includes your stay in one of the rooms (twin size beds), all linens/towels, etc., provided plus full use of the kitchen with microwave, refrigerator, oven, stove and dishwasher, pots, pans, plates, glassware, cooking utensils, etc..
Guests are encouraged to bring their own food for meals - there is plenty of room in the refrigerator and freezer!
There are several restaurants nearby for meals as well as various take-out restaurants that will deliver.
Enjoy bringing your favorite wine, cocktail mixes, etc.. There is a blender in the kitchen and wine bottle openers as well as wine glasses.
Your fee also covers your 24 hour use of the Tool Room during your stay which houses thousands of rubber stamps, hundreds of dies plus die-cutting machines, embossing folders, markers, chalks, ink pads and more.
The Main Workshop (below) will now house several 6' tables for four crafters to use "socially distanced", cushy office chairs with lumbar support, plenty of lighting and access to the Tool Room which is right next to it.
Workshop Room #1 (above) will seat 4 crafters very comfortably and safely distanced from one another.
The Crafting Cottage retail shop is available during the hours of your stay where you will find staples such as adhesive to treasures such as stunning papers from Italy! It works on the "Honor System".
There is a "Beverage Center" which is available to all guests. It includes an ice-machine, a Keurig machine with several choices of pods for coffee, tea, cider and cocoa. Guests may wish to bring their own "Half 'n Half", otherwise there is powdered cream available. There is a hot/cold water cooler.
On the second floor are two guest rooms that will house three crafters. One room has been divided in half and each half has it's own door out to the hallway. The Serenity Suite's guests will share the large full bath that is housed in the "Harmony Suite". The guest that occupies the Tranquility Suite will be assigned to the smaller full bathroom on the 2nd floor.
The Serenity Suite, on the second floor, is bathed in shades of pink and cream with beautiful flowers to give one the feeling of staying in a garden.
This suite usually accommodates up to three guests - but will be limited to only two guests and the room will be divided with a physical barrier to keep the two guests separated at this time.
The Tranquility Suite, on the second floor, calms with its beautiful blues and nod towards the sea. The lovely full bath in the hallway is for the use of the guest staying in the Tranquility Suite only.
The Harmony Suite has been temporarily closed as a guest room so that the large full bathroom can be used solely for the two guests staying in the Serenity Suite.
The Crafters' Sanctuary is located on the first floor and is reserved especially for those crafters that cannot go up and down the stairs to the second floor guest rooms easily. This room will accommodate one guest. It has a dedicated full bathroom attached.
