CPRC holds a grand total of 52 guests. We have a work area for 24 guests, one for 16 guests, and three separate 4 person suites.
Your stay includes continental breakfast each morning you are there.
There are areas for pedicures and massages similar to the other buildings.
Each work area has a lounge/relaxation area near it that includes seating, a TV, WiFi, full size refrigerator, water cooler, and counter area with sink. There is ample space for you to put your snacks and drinks without needing to go to the kitchen. Bathrooms are also near each work area.
For the main building, we have four bedrooms located on the main floor and the remainder are upstairs on the second floor. The building does not have an elevator. The four bedrooms on the main floor are just steps from the 24 person work area. Room #12 has 4 beds, Room #0 has 4 beds, Room #1 has 3 beds, and Room #2 has 6 beds, and each has its own bathroom. These four main floor bedrooms can be used by guests who are unable to do stairs. The remainder of the bedrooms are located on the second floor. Bedroom #3 has five beds, while bedrooms #4 thru #11 have 4 beds, each with its own bathroom. We provide shampoo, conditioner, body wash, lotion and hair dryers in the bathrooms.
The dining area and kitchen are shared by our 24 person and 16 person groups. The dining area is large enough for everyone to eat at once, and this is where the continental breakfast will be served each morning of your stay.
The kitchen has three stoves, three dishwashers, and a large commercial refrigerator and freezer for the groups to share. This kitchen is large enough so that more than one group can be in there at the same time. The kitchen is fully stocked with bake ware, cookware, crockpot, blender, toaster, hand mixer, plates, utensils, glasses, coffee maker, Keurig (you supply pods) and paper products. Purified water is also provided. A continental breakfast is provided each morning of your stay which includes coffee, tea, hot chocolate, milk, orange juice, assorted yogurts, oatmeal, cereal, bagels, cream cheese, margarine, and jelly.
For those who do not want to cook, Riverfront Grille offers catering for a special price to our CP guests. More info can be found HERE.
FOUR PERSON SUITES
For the 4 person suites, we have connected two large hotel rooms that will now have an interior door between them. One room has four twin beds and a bathroom, while the other room has the work tables, kitchen, and dining areas. The kitchen is fully stocked with bake ware, cookware, crockpot, blender, toaster, hand mixer, plates, utensils, glasses, coffee maker, Keurig (you supply pods) and paper products. Purified water is also provided. A continental breakfast is provided each morning of your stay which includes coffee, tea, hot chocolate, milk, orange juice, oatmeal, cereal, bagels, cream cheese, margarine, and jelly.
Each suite will have its own entrance. Two of these are located in a detached building that is just down a covered walkway, named Suites B and C. The other suite is attached to the main building, named Suite A.
**ALL NEW 4 PERSON WORK AREA - 3RD FLOOR**
Due to the popularity of our 4 person suites, we have added another workspace in the main building at CPRC. Located on the 3rd floor, we have turned one of our open areas into a 4 person work area. This area includes a TV, 4 work tables with chairs, lamps, and cupholders, couch, microwave, and refrigerator.
Any small group of 4 or less that would like to reserve this work area would have a bedroom on the second floor. You would share the kichen and dining room with the 24 and 16 person groups.
We would encourage these groups to utiliize early arrival so that our team can help you in getting your belongings to the second and third floors, and we can arrange for assistance when you depart on Sunday.
Additionally, the 3rd Floor Work Area is specifically for scrapbookers and similar crafts. Since this is located direclty over two bedrooms, we cannot allow sewing machines which will create too much noise.
For availability, please go to the Availability Weekend Retreats CPRC page. A photo of this area is in the first slide show below.
The new retreat center now allows us to approach nationally known quilt speakers to come and do lectures, trunk shows and classes. When we book those instructors, we will post on our FB page as well as in the monthly newsletters to keep guests informed of special events. Pricing for these special events will vary depending on who the speaker is and from where they are traveling. Special events will also include full meals.
