The Scrapbooking in the Pines Retreat Center is the perfect place to get away from it all and spend some quality time scrapbooking, stamping, quilting, or crafting with friends or family.
At our retreat center we rent out a bed and table instead of the entire retreat. It makes it economical for all sizes of groups to come in for a little respite. With that bed you get use of: Linens, closet, a 3'x5' table, craft mat, light, electricity. As well as use of the kitchen, locker room, and bathrooms. You will have complimentary use of dvd player, scrapbooking tools, computer and WIFI.
We book week-end stays between September and May as Friday and Saturday consecutive night stays. No single night stays of Friday or Saturday nights are allowed to be booked during this time. You may rent out Sunday - Thursday per night. Single night week-end stays are available from June to August.
Effective 10/1/17, we will no longer be accepting Sunday check-in reservations. All previously booked Sunday check-in's reservations will be honored. This will allow us more time to clean and get the retreat ready for the next guests. Guests already staying the weekend will be able to stay over on Sunday nights.
*Check-in is 3:00 PM and check-out is 1:00 PM. *Early check-in and late check-out may be available.

When you are coming with friends, we ask that you double up in rooms, no exceptions. If you want a room all to yourself, you will need to pay for both beds. You are also only alloted one table for use while you stay. We ask that you keep your group of rooms and tables together.
We also will not reserve rooms for guests prior to their arrival. Rooms are available on a first come, first served basis. If you are arriving after 5:00 PM, be sure to call the store (320-629-9960) to get access code for retreat entry.
Alchohol and the use of it.
While we do not condone it's use, we do ask that you consume alcohol in moderation and be considerate of your fellow retreat guests. Guests failing to do so will be asked to leave and forfeit their stay money. They may be banned from staying in our retreat in the future. If you feel the need to spend your weekend at the bar, please check into a hotel. The rest of your fellow retreaters will enjoy their stay better if you do so.
Smoking. We are a smoke free facility and that includes e-cigs. We have an ash urn outside the retreat entry for you to use for smoking. Guests using e-cigs must to go out there as well when they use them.
We have had concerns that we do not have windows in the retreat center, but we have added a door with a window in the entry. There are great perks to that. You don't get as tired as quickly when you don't see day turn to night! You get very little outside noise. A lot of the guests that have stayed with us didn't even notice not having windows. The store has huge windows so from 10-5 you can see out whenever you would like. If you have time to come up and take a tour you might get a better feel of the space. Hey, when you stay on a cruise ship you pay big bucks just to get a porthole!
We want you to feel at home and have tried to think of all the things possible that we would like to see in a retreat that we would be staying in. Now if you think there is something else you would like us to consider or have any questions, please contact us.
We hope you enjoy the virtual tour of our facilities and we look forward to hosting your retreat event! Scrapbooking In The Pines Retreat 415 2nd Ave SE Pine City MN 55063 320-629-9960
