A Piece of Heaven, Stolen Moments........

A retreat review from The Crafty Scrapper

Have you been to Stolen Moments Inn?  This retreat is for you if you have a group of six to eight friends who enjoy being together for the weekend.  And the best part is that your group will have the retreat venue all to yourselves.  The house is a 1929 Victorian – fully furnished just for you. The owners have included all of the amenities a group needs to have a relaxing and fun scrapbook retreat.  This retreat is close to The Crafty Scrapper – just about ten minutes away – in Maypearl, Texas.

When you get to the house, there is a large parking area behind the house. There is a ramp where you can roll your supplies into the house on a cart, which is provided by the owners. The back door has a locking key pad which is reprogrammed for each retreat. The kitchen is fully stocked – you will just need to bring your food and snacks. The island in the kitchen provides ample room to set out a family style meal or ice cream/dessert bar.  There is a separate living room if you want to get away and relax a bit.  You can even watch DirecTV. The dining room is beautifully furnished with space for eight of you to enjoy your meals.  The crop room has a flat screen TV/DVD combo and a movie library. The tables are six foot with a trash can at each station and a comfy rolling chair. The floor in the crop room is laminate, which makes it easy to move the chairs around. The lighting in this room is great whether day or night. There is a full bath downstairs which is ADA compliant.

Upstairs there are two bedrooms and two full baths available. There are no bunk beds! The twin mattresses are comfortable and the linens are nice. Towels are provided with extra to spare. The bathrooms and bedrooms are very nicely decorated and roomy. One bathroom even has a jacuzzi tub if you want to soak and relax in a bubble bath. You just need to supply the bubble! Best of all, if there are scrappers up late, you cannot hear them while you are sleeping upstairs.

If you are into drinking your coffee outside early in the morning, there is a deck out back with seating and the front porch also has seating. The front porch is a great place to take a picture of your group and guess what?  There is a tripod upstairs to use just for this purpose.

If you have forgotten anything during your stay, the grocery store is just down the street and there is also a Dollar General store.  You can also order pizza and salad from the local pizzeria and it is good!
The Crafty Scrapper is a short 10 minutes’ drive away.  We provide discount coupons at the retreat for you.  It’s the best of all worlds.  You can retreat and shop your weekend away at Stolen Moments Inn and The Crafty Scrapper.
And you know what?  All of this can be yours for $125 per person per weekend.  It is a great retreat bargain.
