The primary emphasis of the business rests on group needs, special events, multi-day workshops and retreats. Workshops to date have focused on topics such as gardening, a variety of creative arts/crafts and photography and are offered periodically. The house and grounds are a lovely and unique setting for small celebrations, reunions, girl-friend outings, group gatherings, special luncheons and meetings. It is also a perfect venue for individual and small group retreats. The owner is happy to work with you to customize your gathering or event and meet your needs.
Planned group workshop/retreats have been or might be designed around different Creative Arts, Spiritual Well-being and Healthy Living themes. Future themes might focus on journal or creative writing, sketching, knitting, beading, growing and using herbs, healthy menu planning, prayer meditation, and other special interest topics designed for people such as caregivers or those looking to retire.
Personal retreats allow time alone for quiet self-reflection, reading, personal pursuits like writing or crafting, and plenty of relaxation. Enjoy a walk along the Mississippi River, a bike ride on one of the local paths, wander among the small shop in town, take a ride on the sightseeing trolley or catch a show at the Sheldon Theater.
