Spotlight on Whispering Pines Retreat

Off the beaten path (but not too far off), in the hills of Southwestern Montana and nestled amongst swaying trees, a crafter's paradise can be found.  An old fashioned homestead in Anaconda is the location of Whispering Pines Retreat.  A pond, complete with large trout and even a turtle, is just one of the beautiful amenities that crafters and scrapbookers - maybe even a book club or two - will find upon their arrival at this gorgeous location.

Adding to the charm and authenticity of the homestead acreage is the presence of one of the original log homes, left untouched through generations, as well as antique and modern farming equipment.

Though the beauty of its surroundings certainly draws people to Whispering Pines, it is only the tip of the proverbial iceberg.  The peaceful atmosphere and the friendly service have provided many a crafter with a haven away from the hustle and bustle that is every day life.  Whereas many scrapbooking or crafting retreats host large groups of people, true to the feeling of serenity and peace that it advertises, Whispering Pines proudly hosts groups of eight at a time.  This allows for exceptional personalized service and a more relaxed overall feeling.

The crop room is stocked with the latest in crafting equipment, including a Cricut, a Cuttlebug and many containers full of Close to My Heart stamps and ink.  There is also a computer loaded with software and a printer.  No need to lug all that equipment around...just bring your paper supplies!

From the beautifully decorated rooms....

to the care and preparation that goes into each meal (all of which are included in the cost of the retreat)...

it's easy to see why groups of all kinds - be it a birthday weekend or just a girls' escape - choose Whispering Pines Retreat.

Whispering Pines has been open for just over two years, and was started by partners Bonnie Peterson and Sheryl Driver.  Bonnie and Sheryl had attended many scrapbooking retreats and decided that there was a need for one closer to their homes.  Six months later, Whispering Pines Retreat was open for business.

Sheryl and Bonnie use Email Contact to send several newsletters to their customers each month, with details about weekend retreat openings and other information.  Soon, general scrapbooking ideas will also be included in these emails.

Whispering Pines would love to host you and your group!  To learn more about them, visit their website, like them on Facebook, or give them a call at the number below.
