Ready for our BIG announcement.....

We are opening the Croppin' Train Hobby House.

Got a hobby but no time or space? Grab a few friends, and spend the week-end at the Croppin’ Train Hobby House!

Located just one block off the Bentonville Square, we have 10 twin beds and, more importantly, ten 6’ tables with office chairs on wheels! That’s right – no sharing required!

Everything you need to enjoy a hobby-filled week-end! Bedding, towels, kitchen for cooking (or just re-heating!), internet, and a well-stocked crafting supply area (all the items we take to our weekend retreat will be here). You just have to bring your comfy clothes, those fuzzy slippers, and your personal crafting supplies.

The Hobby House can be all yours from 9:00 a.m. on Friday to 3:00 p.m. on Sunday – come and go as you like. Take a short walk to the Square to enjoy the dining and shopping available – or just spend a few quiet moments contemplating your next project.

Weekend rental fee is $360 (plus tax) for 6 attendees and $60 for each sleeper over 6. Only $50 to hold your weekend.

Don't have a group of 6 to reserve the Hobby House... no worries, we will host a weekend once a month. We will also host classes the second Tuesday of each month starting in May. See a separate post for all our dates.

Talk to us about reserving your week-end now!
