Welcome to Creative Passions

Creative Passions is an adult creative retreat centrally located in the cozy, historical Village of Chesaning, Michigan. The first location opened in 2005 and we now have four locations to suit your groups needs. From churches, to a Victorian home, to a former mill, we can accommodate a group as small as two and as large as 52. All of our locations are within walking distance of restaurants, small-town shops, and the grocery store.

Our CP TEAM is here to help you make the most of your stay. We offer continental breakfast on each morning of your stay. Our kitchens are stocked with everything you would find in your own home and several restaurants in the area offer catering services. And if you're looking to be pampered, onsite pedicures and massages are available.

Please stroll through our locations to find the perfect location for your group. We look forward to making your stay memorable!

In addition to opening the Retreats on May 29, we also opened our retail Quilt and Scrapbook Shop!  The hours in the shop are Tuesday-Saturday 11am until 5pm. We know everyone is excited to come to the new shop, but remember these rules we HAVE TO FOLLOW:

  • All patrons must wear masks
  • Due to size of shop, only 3 patrons inside at once
  • Social distance


While on hiatus, we have done a few things to keep you safe and germ free, as much as we possibly can:

  • Installed UV lights in all furnaces at each building, these lights neutralize bacteria, sanitize the air
  • Air ducts cleaned at CP1 and CPRC (CP2 and CP3 were cleaned recently)
  • Carpets cleaned at CPRC (newer carpet or cleaned recently at other buildings)


What Creative Passions is doing moving forward:

  • Bedding (as have always) being cleaned with hotel industry guidelines
  • Surfaces (as have always) being cleaned using antibacterial cleansers, with additional attention to high-contact areas
  • Pump hand sanitizers in all common areas
  • Each person’s station will have their own personal-use hand sanitizer
  • Scheduling only one group at each location, until further notice
  • Requiring face masks to be worn while at Creative Passions, unless you can social distance
  • Screening team members and reducing amount of contact with guests


Continental breakfast:

  • Open items will be replaced with single-serving food, as soon as available. Until then, new containers of milk, juice, butter with every group
  • Breakfast hostess will set up for self-serve breakfasts including coffee, milk, orange juice, muffins, yogurt, cereal and instant individual oatmeal
