Create. Laugh. Relax.building_color_sketchSM

When was the last time you….
Got away from the family?
Took time off just for YOU?

Give yourself that uninterrupted time to hang out with  your girlfriends or to work on those special craft projects. Whether it be scrapbooking, stamping, knitting, beading, quilting, card making or whatever your craft may be that you’ve dreamed of starting or finishing – you can schedule a craft retreat weekend.

Not feeling “crafty”? That’s perfectly OK, too. Maybe you simply need to enjoy a girls getaway weekend to shop, go to one of the casinos or escape the realities of day-to-day life.

Now is the time to grab your girlfriends and give yourself the lift you deserve. Spend a few days creating, laughing, relaxing and enjoying all there is for you here at the Penthouse Retreat, located downtown in historic La Porte, IN.
