4CEDARS TimberFrame Retreat is the perfect get-a-way for crafting groups, business retreats, and family gatherings.

We do private one-day events too!

Call about renting the crafting porch for special events such as showers, birthdays, and anniversaries!


The crafting porch is perfect for scrapbooking with your group! The wireless printer, Cricut Maker, paper cutter, hanging tabletop electrical outlets with USB charging ports, tabletop task lighting, and other supplies will make your experience one-of-a-kind!


Quilting has been a forever pastime for all ages. Bring your group and enjoy a special weekend of quilting using the added conveniences of rectangular quilting ironing boards and different-sized design walls for lay-out of your quilt pieces.

“4Cedars TimberFrame Retreat how much fun we had! Scrapping away with mimosas to drink-the bug zapper-all the movies we watched-the wonderful meals everyone prepared-but most of all, I'll never forget looking out the window up on 2nd floor and seeing the stars come out.” Sheralyn

“Thank you for your joy & hospitality!  We loved our stay! Thank you for sharing your home with us! We would love to return!  So much love to you both!”  Laura
