Seamless Getaways is the perfect space for a sewing/crafting weekend with friends and family. The accommodations are welcoming, inspiring and thoughtful. The outdoor area is peaceful and inviting. Don't worry about forgetting something. Linda has you covered. The crafting space is well lit and there is enough design space for all. Linda's enthusiasm is contagious, and she is an excellent host. We will be back!" Judy D.

The retreat home was amazing! I went there with a friend and met new friends!! The house had everything we needed and more! Beautiful bedding, comfortable beds, ample bathrooms and relaxing space. The sewing area was AMAZING! We each had our own table, Linda had individual ironing (tray) tables as well as full iron stations. The sewing room is fully lined with design walls, which we LOVED!! Ample outlets and cozy place to be!!! I highly recommend Seamless Getaways!!!

This was my first quilt retreat and will be really difficult to beat! So fun! The house was over-the-top cute, clean, and comfy! We had plenty of space for sewing in the brightly lit work room. Linda anticipated our needs and has done a super job of creating a perfect getaway for crafters or anyone

First time ever going to a quilting weekend for me. House was so warm and inviting. Every decoration detail well thought out and SOOO cute. Sewing area was well lit, sewing space more than ample. Bedrooms are beautifully decorated and my bed very comfortable. It was a very calm and relaxing atmosphere. Lots of good conversation and laughs were had. I especially loved her decoration walls, helped me map out my quilt design. Definitely will be back and will recommend!!
