Cozy home with unique charm, perfect for family gathering

  • 5 of 5

The church was perfect for our family get together. Plenty of space for our two families and the open floor plan was great for hosting a family gathering. Perfect location - within walking distance to everything (Drake Park, downtown shopping and restaurants, grocery store, etc). The home was clean and well stocked, even with dog blankets, toys and dishes. The property managers were fantastic to work with - very responsive, helpful and courteous. We felt right at home and would definetly consider staying at the Church again, or any of the Lavabelle properties.

Beautiful and functional

  • 5 of 5

The Church is a great place to stay for a large group! There's plenty of room and all of the beds are comfortable. They did a beautiful job converting the place and it's in the perfect location to walk into town.
