Unique, versatile, awe-inspiring property!! Originally a church established in the late 1800's this property has developed over the years into this amazing retreat capable of hosting a variety of events comfortably and consistently for years to come. As you enter the property you will be greeted by the primary church structure with available parking in front. The original church building has been remodeled into fully-accommodated living quarters complete with a master bedroom, flex-space, a kitchen w/island, rows of 42-inch cabinets, electric stove top, oven and refrigerator, full bathroom with walk-in shower and an additional carpeted room off of the formal dining area.

The bench seating can be converted into tables and the vintage incandescent lighting give this gorgeous structure a touch of aged ambiance you want for live music and gatherings.
