Welcome to The Cozy Castle, a 1926 charming storybook home located in the delightful town of Deland, Florida. I can’t wait to show you the magic that’s here!
Hi! I’m Karen, and I’m so thrilled you’re here. Why? Because I’m mildly obsessed with living a life that is creative and I LOVE to share the simple pleasures of life with others.
I’ve been an artist and hopeless romantic for as long as I can remember. So in 2016 when I stumbled across this gorgeous house I fell in love from the moment I set eyes on it.
I knew immediately this magical place had to be enjoyed by others who felt it’s enchanting charm. The name came to be so easily: This is The Cozy Castle.
Inspired by my love of all things vintage, romantic, and beautiful, Cozy Castle Events are eccentric gatherings for anyone who craves creative inspiration.
It’s a place for all of us who love to experience vintage and art inspired fun with like-minded, cheerful, people who love indulging in the simple pleasure of life! I want to bring back the joy of being creative and the excitement of enjoying events with other hopeless romantics who feel like they were born in the wrong era too!
We’re planning all kinds of chic and fabulous experiences…
- Vintage Inspired Mixed Media Art Classes
- Shopping Weekend Getaways
- Cooking Experiences for Adults & Children
- Gardening and Entertaining
- History Lectures and Teas
- Portrait Events
- Special Holiday Events
- Private ‘Meet The Artist” Trunk Shows
- Vintage Finery, and more!
Are you ready to indulge your creativity?
These chic, one-of-a-kind experiences at The Cozy Castle are sure to inspire you! Create your own bliss, learn artful skills, experience the beauty of a historical home at our next Cozy Castle Event. I can’t wait to connect and share the wonderful place with you.
See you there!
