Gray Ghost Inn to Host Quilters’ Retreat This Fall

We are so pleased to invite you and your fellow guild members, friends, and family to the Gray Ghost Inn’s first biannual Quilters’ Retreat, now to be held October 14-17, 2021. Less than three hours from Boston and just over four from New York City and Montreal, our friendly, family-run inn offers our famously welcoming hospitality inside and the best of southern Vermont at our doorstep. Be sure to check out our website at, our Facebook page, and our reviews on Tripadvisor for a better idea of what we have to offer.

Rates for the full three-day weekend are $228 per person based on double occupancy, or $338 single.
A tentative schedule for the weekend is attached. We will update you with final arrangements closer to time, but be assured your very reasonable rate will include:

  • 3 nights’ accommodations in our spotlessly clean, comfortable, and welcoming inn.
  • Home-cooked breakfast daily
  • Two informal lunches
  • One hosted wine and cheese reception
  • One group dinner on-site, chef-made especially for our quilters
  • Name tags for making new friends
  • Table work space for working in our Great Room
  • Access to an area quilt shop’s resources and merchandise
  • Other surprises, treats, and gifts throughout the weekend.

Your $50 refundable deposit will hold your space, with final payment for the Spring ’21 event due September 15.

The best way to reserve your spot is by contacting us at email hidden; JavaScript is required with your name, guild affiliation (if any), roommate information, email address, mailing address, a telephone number, and any dietary or mobility restrictions. We will reply to arrange payment by check or credit card. Alternately, you may call us at 800-745-3615.

We’d appreciate your sharing this information with your members and other quilters you know.

Best wishes,
Carina Hellström

P.S. Please note we are also available for full-group bookings in 2021 and 2022, should your guild be looking for its very own venue. Contact me to discuss the possibilities.
