We are a diverse facility located in Central Pennsylvania specializing in scrapbooking and other crafting retreats. Hobby House Retreat can accommodate any type of event in our 4,400 square foot house. Our house has sleeping accommodations for 18 guests and each guest gets their own 6 foot table to work at. In addition, HHR is on 4.5 beautiful acres and allows campers and tents for larger groups and family reunions.

For crafters there is a great selection of on-site paper-crafting tools. We also have wireless internet for our guests along with a fully equipped kitchen.

Hobby House Retreat has a variety of events planned throughout the year including children's and family events. If there is a crafting class you or your group is interested in please let us know. Or if you would like to be an instructor for a class and need a space to hold your event don't hesitate to contact us.

Hobby House Retreat can be reserved for any length of time at any time during the year. Our most common rentals are for weekends but your group can add a day or two to make it a long weekend, or come and stay for a week or even longer.

Think of Hobby House Retreat as a "beach house" without the beach or even a bed and breakfast for larger groups and families. Imagine you and your extended family including cousins, aunts, uncles, grandparents, brothers and sisters, etc. could join together in the house and have game nights, meals and reminisce. While during the day everybody could go and enjoy all of the great tourist attractions the area has to offer.

We are a short drive to Lancaster, Hershey, Harrisburg and York. There are also many attractions and vineyards located in Central PA.
