******Updates on The Crafting Cottage Inn******
April 16, 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 inn, 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 September, 2020. Like all of you - I sincerely hope
we are able to craft together again 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 six guests at any one time.
2) No more than two guests 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 the room they are staying in.
4) Sanitizing products will be stationed throughout the Inn for guests to use.
5) The Innkeeper (me) will be onsite during guests' stays and will continuously clean and sanitize
surfaces, doorknobs, light switches, etc..
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!
