******Updates on The Crafting Cottage Inn******
The Inn is now OPEN!!!
Understandably, The Crafting Cottage Inn has made 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".
Here are the changes that have been implemented 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. When there are four guests - two of the guests will share a bathroom but still have their own bedroom.
4) Sanitizing products will be stationed throughout the Inn for guests to use.
5) Several Air Purifiers have been installed throughout the Cottage.
6) Plexiglass dividers have been placed in the Main Workshop Room.
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 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!!!!

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!
