I am Diana Baldes your retreat host. I am the mother of two great children who are on their own and away at college. After years of planning and dreaming , my place is your crafting space. Crafter's Knoll stands apart from other retreats because we are small, intimate, and pet friendly. Tyson, my dog is the resident pup. He does well with other dogs and people. Since I only accommodate 6 guests my menu allows for individual requests and made to order items, such as salads, desserts and omelettes. Currently, I teach preschool in the Pontiac School District. In the past 24 years I have inspired students to be the best they can be while feeling safe and respected in my classroom. I now accept the challenge to inspire my guests to be creative while feeling "at home in my home." Welcome to Crafter's Knoll, we hope to see you soon.
