We are retreating at the Pineberry Lodge in Black Hawk, Colorado about 30 minutes west from Denver in the mountains. http://www.pineberrylodge.com It is an amazing set up, designed for scrapbooking or quilting retreats. The house will accommodate up to 12 people, but we have 10 people.
Each of us have our own table, comfy chair, Ott Lite , beverage holder, power strip, and trashcan. The light is exceptional with the big windows.
The kitchen is well appointed for easy meal preparation and serving.
Downstairs has a great sectional, wood stove, big screen TV, DVD player, and cuddly throws.
There are also two bedrooms downstairs, two bedrooms upstairs, and the master is on the main level. Each level has a full bathroom.
Debbie had this gorgeous quilting themed birthday cake made for a few birthday girls. Unfortunately, it did not travel that well, but was delicious.
Here is everyone hard at work on various projects.
Mary and Sharon were enjoying the set up especially listening to the rain we had fall through the trees.
It is easy to interact and be productive.
This is the front deck and the house is surrounded by trees.
There are other houses nearby, but it feels private.
The lodge was stocked with candy and chips.
I pieced part of my Apple-licious top and got a good start of piecing the borders. I ran out of scraps for the borders and will have to finish it at home. I am now working on piecing strawberries--this will go down as my "Fruit Retreat." More details to come...
