    This place was just stunning! We have never stayed in a place so nice! The views from the hill top cemetery were just breath taking. The neighbor's dog even walked us up and down the hill each afternoon. Precious! Everything here is as comfortable as it is beautiful. Comfortable bed. Comfy couch. Loved the kitchen! We had a great time all around and can't wait to come back.

    Our stay at Iron Duff Chapel was amazing! Everything was beautifully decorated, clean and unique. Our daughter loved the indoor swing and stated the chapel was a destination in itself.

    The master bedroom had the most comfortable bed I have ever experienced in a rental! Not only was the mattress extremely comfortable, the sheets and cover were heavenly! I came home and ordered the same duvet cover :-). The kitchen was well stocked with all the cooking utensils you need. The stairs to the loft are very steep but the owners took the time to put up a sign that this was to help save the stained glass windows and instruct these way to navigate them. My teenaged daughter had no problem navigating them. There is a lovely area outside with string lights and fire pit. We had a couple of questions there and Catey was very responsive and kind.

    Iron Duff Chapel has become one of my new favorites and I would definitely stay here again!

    The Chapel is everything as advertised. Its cozy for a couple in the master and spacious for a group in the main floor with a loft that is great for a visiting couple. it was very cold during our January stay including snow. But, we stayed warm in the chapel with the ceiling fans circulating the warm air down to us. One caution, the stairs are STEEP. So, the loft is not suitable for young kids or the elderly. Otherwise, everything was great and we really enjoyed our stay.

    Could not have been better! Iron Duff Chapel was a beautiful combination of old and new. Beautifully furnished and well stocked. Loved sitting out back enjoying the landscape and nature. Will definitely plan to visit again.
