Arden Hearth is an ideal setting for small-group gatherings of many kinds. Most workshops and events are one day or evening only, and reservations are required. Have an event you’d like to host here? View our available facilities and contact us for details.

Arden Hearth also periodically has an artist/writer in residence. Artists or writers can rent a room at Arden Hearth for a minimal fee and spend their time developing new work in a relaxing atmosphere. Ample studio space is available in the basement and large (1400 sq. ft.) finished attic.


Arden Hearth hosts various artistic and literary events throughout the year, including literary salons, talks/lectures by visiting artists and writers, house concerts, poetry readings, book discussions, storytelling, slide shows, and art shows. We are also available for intimate celebrations such as bridal and baby showers, special birthdays and anniversaries. View our calendar for a list of upcoming events.


Arden Hearth offers a wide range of art and writing workshops for beginners to professionals. For example, look for upcoming workshops on drawing, photography, stained glass, gardening, local foods, chocolate tasting, poetry, and storytelling. If you are an area artist or writer with an idea for a workshop you’d like to lead, please contact us.


Arden Hearth occasionally offers one-day retreats related to the arts and spirituality. Sometimes led by a visiting artist or writer, these retreats are designed to help you get in touch with the connections between the creative and spiritual aspects of your work. We are also available for day retreats that you plan and organize around your own themes, including staff retreats for small organizations, nonprofit networking or brainstorming retreats, and other intentional gatherings for special interest groups or clubs.
