What is supplied at the house?

The kitchen is fully stocked with dishes, pots and pans and most everything you will need to cook for your group right down to cloth napkins.

All house linens are provided for the bed, bath and kitchen.  If you are traveling and happen to stop at quilt shops along the way, there are laundry facilities to wash that fabric that you just might need to use in one of your projects.

What if we don’t want to cook?

There are a number of restaurants located within 6 to 7 miles, ranging from fast food to nice, sit down restaurants.

(McDonald’s, KFC, Taco Bell, Cracker Barrell, Applebee’s, Hometown Pizza, Arby’s, Gustavo’s, 119 W Main, El Alcapoco, El Nopal, Dairy Queen, SavorMex, Wilder’s Cafe, Crestwood Bistro, Domino’s, Papa Johns, Little Caesar, Cravings Byanca, Raw, Rakishi, Cattlemans, A Taste of Thai, Oli Pollo, Subway, Mi Tierra, Bully Barbeque, Long John Silver, Wendy’s, Steve-o’s, Chen Garden to name a few.)

What are the house rules?

We ask that you treat the retreat as though it were your own home.

There is no smoking.

On your final day, we ask that you complete the basic housekeeping list posted on the refrigerator.

While this is not our home, we have taken great effort to make this a welcome haven for you with a home-like environment.  We live on the property and are within walking distance if you need anything while you stay at the retreat.
