The Victorian Grace
Christian, Faith-Based, Gluten Free Guest Suites
We have chosen to share our Amazingly Beautiful 110 year old VICTORIAN home with you who desire to step back in time, if even for a night or two. The character, charm and wrap around porch will welcome you as you arrive.
The Victorian Grace is a Christian, Faith Based, gluten free home where we rent suites to guests, and offer a suite free of charge to returning missionaries.
This is our ministry, and as such we create a welcoming, faith based space. On special occasions, we enjoy singing hymns, creating works of art, and sharing our journey of Faith with one another.
We reserve a special suite called The Prophet's Chamber for Missionaries to visit and recover upon returning home. There is NO CHARGE to missionaries, as this is a gift from Finger Prints of His Grace. However, a donation from the sending church is extremely helpful and appreciated.
All suites are private, and furnished with a queen bed, fireplace, and TV. The shared bathrooms have showers and a bath tub.
The bathroom on level one was added many years after this home was built in 1907. This bath is charming and up-to-date.
The Prophet's Chamber
The Prophet's Chamber is the suite set aside and reserved for returning missionaries from the Mission Field. It has a gorgeous antique queen bed that centers the room, and is closed by using the 110 year old pocket doors. There is a fireplace, TV, cedar wardrobe, and a comfortable chair for reading. If the suite is available, it can be rented as well.
