We had a wonderful cozy experience at the "The Church". The location is ideal for getting some quite time without being so far from city limits. The space is spacious indeed and the decor is artistically and aesthetically pleasing. Definitely would recommend this cozy abode.

We love places with charm, history and a story and The Church delivered with a bonus. Loved the conservation efforts on sustainable living with low water usage and cooking on a hot plate. There was no tv which is great to just unplug from media of any source. One night a peacock was on a post right outside the fence! The only draw back is the water smelled like sulfur, but all the water in a 50 mile radius was the same.

We had a great stay at the Church! It was a very cozy atmosphere with everything we needed. Beautiful home with great scenic views. Autumn was an excellent host, and I would definitely revisit at the Church again.

The Church is a very unique, cool place. Colorful art and antiques fill the space. Autumn is friendly and was able to offer valuable suggestions of things to do/places to eat. The location is a bit rustic, so be prepared for what that entails: well water, dust, relative isolation.

I am the caretaker of The Church an Art Sanctuary for the foreseeable future. I did my first public showing of my art there years ago and have been friends with Autumn for 10 years. I will be staying in the house next door and using the art studio to create. I work in construction and will gladly take care of any issues that arise to make your stay as comfortable as possible.
