The Historic Pinecrest Lodge & Events


The Historic Pinecrest Lodge has all of the wonderful amenities you'd expect from a retreat center, with some special touches you can only find in a comfortable inn nestled in the trees.

You'll find everything you need to make your stay with us a pleasant one. Rooms are configured with 1 Queen Bed (shared) and there are a total of 9 rooms available.

Prefer to have your own space? No problem - we also have a Commuter Option. With all of the AirBnBs around Palmer Lake, or even the Fairfield Inn in Monument, you'll have plenty of options. Plus, you won't miss out on any of the retreat fun. We have 2 packages available -- a Full Commuter (all meals and projects), or a Partial Commuter (Lunch & Happy Hour every afternoon, and all projects) are included. Let us know if you'd like us to help you locate a place for you. If you are travelling with your significant other, then please plan on the commuter option as the lodge is for women only :)

We take pride in our own private chef, Jordan Zavala - and she takes pride in every meal she serves along with her "Sous Chef Victoria.. Delight in made-from-scratch entrees, fresh ingredients and healthy options at every sitting. You will receive a wonderful breakfast, lunch, and dinner with snacks available in between. Of course, fresh coffee, tea, ice water, and hot chocolate are available all day. Please note: Along with regular dining, the only additional special meals we can accommodate are Gluten Free meals.

Plus, Teresa and Jordan will have specialty drinks and wine available for those who would like to partake. You will not go hungry or thirsty!

QUILTING... As in year's past, we will feature a mystery quilt that you will love ... and we are already working diligently on our next Mystery Quilt project! 

In addition to the Mystery Quilt,  we also break up the time with several other projects that you will finish ... you will be so accomplished!   And best of all, the materials for ALL of the  regular scheduled retreat projects are included in your all-in-one package price!  
note: There is also an optional 'Early Birds' project for those of you who just can't get enough quilting (additional cost).

Of course, no quilt retreat is complete without a bit of fun  -- special drawings, great prizes, and fun games will add to the festivity.   Plus, we have special gifts for each attendee, and, for those who are interested, there will be several fun group activities, and  a look at the Homespun Hearth operations.

CHALLENGE Project -  'Challenge Quilt with a Twist' -- we will have special instructions coming with your package.  Packages are scheduled to ship out in mid July for those who are paid in full.

FRESH AIR... Everyone can view the spectacular mountains, maybe even catch a glimpse of the wild life,  breathe in the freshest air and enjoy the spectacular blue skies and relaxing way of life here in Colorado while you stitch!  You will find time early in the morning to take a refreshing walk.  For those of you who really want to get a taste of Colorado, we recommend arriving or departing a day or two after the retreat.  We will help you make arrangements at a local hotel if you like (rooms for extra nights are not available at the lodge).

SEWING MACHINES... You will need to bring your own. rentals will be available.  But, we have found that today's machine carry bags make traveling by air or car a snap.  We have a special bag - let us know if you are interested.   Of course, if you bring your special someone with you*, you can have him carry your machine.  Tell him he can bring his clubs and hit the greens. 

GETTING HERE... The closest airport is Colorado Springs.   The cost for transportation to and from the airport is approx $75 per taxi trip.     If you decide to fly in/out of Denver International Airport,  we recommend a car rental as this will likely be more economical than a taxi. You can also take an Uber.  Most guests find that flying into Colorado Springs is much more convenient - while the airfare is generally more than flying in and out of Denver, the overall expense (car, taxi, convenience, etc) tends to be pretty close.

WHAT ABOUT THE WEATHER?... One thing we can say about Colorado, is if you don't like the weather, just wait 5 minutes because it will change.  We recommend casual clothes, comfy shoes, and a light sweater and jacket -- after all, we are at 7,500 ft elevation, so it can get very nippy in the evenings.  September is generally very comfortable in the mid-70s for the daytime, and mid-40s for the nights, but October can be fickle with lots of warm air and the possibility Frosty showing up, too. 

HOW TO SIGN UP...  First, if you want to stay in the Lodge, contact Teresa at to check availability before you reserve your space. Let us know if you are traveling alone or with friends, so we can get you the appropriate accomodations.
