    Such a lovely remodel of a historic church. The stained glass windows are so lovely. It’s a short walk to the river & downtown as well. We loved every second.

  • Unique family fun place to stay

    4/5

    We were looking for something different for our family weekend away and not too far from home. Staying in a renovated church was a unique experience and fit the bill for us. We brought some games and never opened our bag with standards like Monopoly, Yahtzee and Uno to be had on site! The property managers were quick to reply when we contacted them at check-in and check-out, but otherwise we were left on our own. They have heard previous guests, and we found amenities such as hairdryer, aluminum foil, etc in full stock. The main bedroom with the memorial stained glass window was comfortable and bright in the morning. The glass with its yellow hues make the morning sunshine seem even more vibrant. We didn’t mind, but if you want to sleep in here and don’t want to be up early, bring a sleep mask. The only downside may be that trucks on the main road can shake the windows and rattle the pictures a bit as they lumber by frequently. However, its proximity to several areas to hike, bike and shop make this a fun place to stay. Plus having breakfast up on the dais overlooking the rest of the space makes you remember that you are staying in a church… with a bell in its tower! Kids will love it! It’s a great place to bring the kids and their cousins as the loft and side room offer plenty of places to sleep! Totally recommend for family stays.
