The Haven is a unique apartment in a cozy, repurposed church in the heart of Winslow. Its soaring wooden arches and adobe walls help deliver that getaway feeling you've been needing. The space sleeps 5 comfortably with 1 on a huge Victorian sofa.

The Haven, the Sanctuary, and newly opened Idyll may be rented together when available, sleeping up to 10 in the three conjoined spaces.

The space
The Haven is a restful, intriguing retreat in the chapel of our repurposed church. There are many antiques and art is intermingles with brimming bookcases, vintage board games, unusual lamps and statuary. You immediately enter The Great Room with its soaring 15 ft. ceiling and amazing furniture. There's a Kokopelli lamp right inside the door to help illuminate the space. You'll find scads of chairs, a piano, amusing lamps, and a long table at the center of the room.
The photos on our site will give you a feel for this carpeted space which also features a remarkable, beveled-pane church window which pressages the bedroom. You'll find a queen-size bed with a brand-new temper-pedic mattress and luxurious linens. There is also a roomy wardrobe in this private room.
A curtained hide-a-bed area can make a cozy mini-escape. It turns into a fullsize double bed and the curtains can be drawn for more privacy.
The kitchen has the requisite appliances: stove, refrigerator, microwave, toaster and coffeemaker. The kitchen's retro look is achieved by using rusted, galvanized steel panelling and African wood trim that complement the repurposed colander overhead lamps. Be sure to look for the Arizona mudflap used as kitchen art. It's easy to make a meal here or just have a refreshing drink.
The fourth space is the newly renovated bathroom, which, though small, has an ultra modern shower with a superb showerhead, a quaint metal sink and a comfort-height commode. Mirrors abound, so it's more than utilitarian.
Back in the Great Room, the huge Victorian sofa below the mantle can be made into a single bed upon request or guests may make up the bed themselves with linens and blanket provided.
The Haven is cooled by a swamp cooler, not AC, and guests have access to the controls. There is also an enclosed courtyard with a wood burning firepit, mainly used from September through May.

Where you’ll be

Winslow, Arizona, United States

Winslow is a small town, great for biking, walking or hiking. There is no public transportation but The Haven is situated close to the library, churches, gift shops, restaurants and the Old Trails Museum. LaPosada, an historic refurbished gem, is nationally recognized and within walking distance. Do not miss it! Its architecture, art objects, gardens and history make it a tourist MUST! You'll also find delicious food at its restaurant, The Turquoise Room. Unsurpassed! It's just down Second Street, past Standin' on the Corner Eagles' Commemorative Park. Thousands of fans come each year to pay homage to this iconic band. See what it's all about, right on Route 66. Be sure to read the Winslow Guide book for more interesting restaurants and other cool sites.
Also be advised that the speed limit in Winslow is 25mph and enforced. Downtown and near schools, the speed limit is 15mph, which is posted and enforced. Fair warning; it's important that everyone is kept safe. School in Winslow is almost year round, so it's a good thing to know that there are often kids and school buses which need your attention.

I am a retired business owner who continued to look for another opportunity which is how I found an exciting new life hosting guests in my repurposed church building and bungalow next door. My late husband and I began our lives together in the Chicago suburbs and then lived in Europe with our three children for more than a decade. We moved Tacoma in the eighties, where we began our business. I am interested in history, theater, opera, music, dogs, grandkids, cousins, the environment, travel and food. When I have traveled with my grandkids, we are easy-going, roll-with-the-punches travelers, eager to experience new venues and gather great stories. We don't stay up late except for theater, shows and great restaurants. Quiet and always on the go. Did I mention food? Love ethnic anything. At The Sanctuary, The Haven and Aero, we are seeking guests with inquisitive minds and adventuresome spirits. Join us!
