Mountain Top Crop

"Mountain Top Crops" are 4 day (and 3 nights) open invitation crafting getaways.  This is the most hassle-free retreat you'll go on all year long!  You get to spend the whole weekend working on your projects and doing what you came to do - crop 'til you drop.  What you won't be doing is cooking, cleaning, or dealing with the other stuff that can make going on a retreat more work than fun (shopping, cooking, cleaning up, etc.).

Are you looking for a crafting group to join?   Want to learn a new technique?  Want to meet other fun, like-minded, and creative people?  Or, are you just looking to find some dedicated time to get projects done?  Then, you are invited you to join one of our open-house-style Mountain Top Crop events.


Whether you are a scrapbooker, stamper, quilter, knitter, chalk artist, into making home decor or are into any other type of crafting, The Crafty Elk Loge is designed with the crafter's needs as the top priority.  We offer dedicated work space, lodging, meals, access to tools and supplies, and more.

Come to make new friends or bring a group of your best crafty friends with you.  Either way, you are warmly invited to join us in the beautiful North Georgia mountains for a fun-filled time where your biggest worry is which embellishments would look best on your layout.
