Coppertoppe has become a popular retreat for quilters, writers, artists, musicians (ask about our recording studio), healers, yoga practitioners and church groups. We support and nurture creative and wellness activities and workshops. We enjoy having a house full of happy youths and leaders working for a better world, and their joyful noise is encouraging and uplifting.

Coppertoppe is the perfect setting for your ceremony and/or reception, with acres of gardens, fields and woodlands with ponds and fountains. The lawn and arbor overlooking Newfound Lake and the surrounding mountains provide an abundance of scenic views, birdsong and flowers.

At Coppertoppe, we only host one event at a time. In order to guarantee exclusive use of the facility, you must reserve the whole house for lodging for at least one night November through May and two nights June through October. You will have our undivided attention and exclusive use of the property.

Examples of past workshops:

Mat Hats and Beauteous Bonnets. Hat decorating workshop and Divine Inspirations trunk show. Find your fun look and express yourself with hat decoration, jewelry, accessorizing, and poise techniques. Bring a hat and glitz or purchase supplies at the workshop.

The Great Escape Writers Workshop Weekend lodging by genre in nearby B&Bs with break-out groups and exercises, then gatherings of all together for seminars and workshops with published authors, editors and/or publishers.

Wedding Planning Workshop Weekend You want to get married WHEN? You need a ceremony, vows, agenda, music list and more. Learn and get it done while sharing together-time with your intended, family and friends who can help.


If you are seeking a pre-planned retreat, workshop or seminar with an experienced leader, we offer many options. We have an extensive network of talented, experienced leaders, trainers, speakers and coaches. Many more topics are available than we can list, but you can see a few examples on our retreats page. We have a database of talented, experienced retreat leaders covering almost any subject you can name. You pick the topic and bring the group, and we’ll take care of everything else. You may have heard about the build-a-bear shops…consider this your build-a-retreat shoppe.
