The Crafting Cottage Inspiring Paper Crafters Since 2003

The Crafters 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 Hodgeman Park.  The Crafting Cottage is in the original Hodgman House!

The Inn can now accommodate up to ten crafters  comfortably with each crafter having their own 6' table.
