Meet Your Host

Almost 25 years ago, Laura Horn received a Creative Memories gift certificate when her first child was born. She had no idea what she was getting into when she bought her first scrapbook and supplies! Now, Laura continues to enjoy scrapbooking memories for her four children. Besides scrapbooking, she loves to decorate; support her kids' coaching events; watch the Brewers, Packers, Badgers, and Bucks; and spend time with family and friends.

"I hosted my first official retreat 19 years ago. Through these retreats, I have met a lot of people, many who have become great friends. It is my dream to own a retreat business. I look forward to providing you with the same warm, relaxing retreat experience that I have enjoyed all these years."

For weekend retreats, you may arrive as early as you wish on the day you check-in. Check-out is by 3 p.m. on Sunday. Summer stays and special events have varied check-in and check-out times that we can discuss when you reserve the retreat. We will do our best to accommodate you. Send us an email.

What should I bring?

Your personal scrapbooking or crafting supplies, personal toiletries, blanket for your bed, and don’t forget those comfy, lounging clothes and slippers! There's a Smart TV in the craft room as well as a TV with cable programming and a DVD player in the living room for you to watch your favorite movies. There is also a portable Sonos speaker to enjoy music in rooms besides the classroom.

What about food?

You are welcome to bring your own food and do your own cooking in our kitchen. There is a dishwasher to make clean up easier. Green Haven Retreat is within a short driving time of many Eau Claire restaurants. Menus are provided for you to help make your choice or to order curbside pickup where available.

Are there policies I should be aware of?

Green Haven Retreat is not responsible or liable for any items that are damaged or lost during your stay. If we find any items left behind, we will contact the host. If something gets broken or is in need of repair please contact us so we can have it taken care of before our next retreat is scheduled. However, you will be responsible for any excessive damage to the property. An itemized list of damages and an invoice for the repairs will be sent to the host.
