Need a meeting space?
Crimson by the Lake (CBTL) is an intimate space within a newly renovated historical four square house intended for small group retreats, workshops, meetings and special events. Located in the quaint harbor town of St. Joseph, Michigan, CBTL is just a 5-10 minute walk to nearby Silver Beach which sits on Lake Michigan and is just minutes from St. Joseph's downtown local restaurants, cafes, and boutiques. Our retreat space is just one block from the local public library and Krasl Art Center and just minutes from various parks, trails, children museum, Amtrak train station and nearby Benton Harber art district.
Owned by Kenya McGuire Johnson (musician and certified health & creative coach) and her husband, Dr. Carl W. Johnson, II (physician/general surgeon), CBTL was created to promote and encourage self-care both personally and professionally.
CBTL is available for hourly and daily rentals for customers to host their own retreats, meetings or special events including photo or video shoots. The owners also host occasional retreats or workshops focused on lifestyle development including topics related to health & wellness, artist development and personal development (spiritual, career, mental health).
If you're looking for the perfect place to relax, recharge and reflect within a small group environment or a charming backdrop for your next photo or video shoot, CBTL is one of the most ideal spaces for you to consider booking your next event!
