“It was a pleasure to visit The Loft! Such a bright airy spotlessly clean and well-outfitted artistic space. The beds were very comfortable and the kitchen had everything we needed! Loved the power are and charging stations! Very convenient! It was nice to spend some quilting time in a great space, with good friends,” Susan Huot
