Die Unterkunft
Welcome to Perth and Lanark County and experience it like a 'Local'. Visit "Ontario's Prettiest Little Town" located one hour South of Ottawa. You can stay at this quaint, one-of-a-kind spacious home and studio built into a historic stone church and enjoy stylish space surrounded by art, architecture, history and nature created by people who are passionate about what makes this church homestead and region so very special.

This self check-in large private Church home with a studio loft and a 5 storey bell tower, is perfectly suited for family and friends or for those visiting for work. It is very spacious featuring 5 unique bedrooms: First bedroom is built into the former Pulpit featuring curved walls, decorated with heritage furniture, an orthopedic Queen sized bed and en-suite access. The second bedroom is built where once stood the Church Pews and has a Queen bed with a touch of modern mid century decor. The third bedroom is upstairs in the Studio Loft and built into the Nave in the steeple of the historic church and is round in shape, featuring a sitting area, a high end Queen bed and en-suite access. The fourth bedroom has vaulted and open ceiling with original soaring beams, and a comfortable Queen bed. The fifth bedroom(s) is built into the original Church Bell Tower and has a Single bed with ladder steps up to an additional Single bed. A fold out cot is available upon request. In addition, a Sun Room on the main floor overlooking the marvelous gardens and orchard has a sitting area with an additional futon. A gallery with artwork, an open concept living room/dining room & kitchen, an additional kitchenette and eating area in the loft, open concept family room with floor to ceiling sun filled windows, two large bathrooms with laundry, wood stove and fireplaces and plenty of closet spaces. The top floor of a 4 storey bell tower feature a mindfulness room with a spectacular view and is perfect for reading, meditation or yoga. Throughout the church home, enjoy stained glass, an art gallery, soaring vaulted ceiling with original beams and from the bell tower, a bird's eye view of the Tay Basin as it comes to meet the Rideau Lake. A South garden facing floor to ceiling window and deck looks out to our 'Star Gazing Platform' and brings the outdoors in.

The main floor of the Church can be separated from the church loft area which makes it suitable for multi-family use. The main floor has an 'Accessible Entrance' and is suitable for children and seniors.

Close to Murphy's Point Provincial Park, Cross Canada Trail and the Rideau Lakes. 10 minutes drive into Perth and Smiths Falls, home to the Rideau Canal, a UNESCO Heritage site.

Guests can book art lessons at the Church: Learn the ancient art of Chinese Ink Painting or Stained Glass Art and bring home finished artworks. Inquire about booking a creative learning experience at the Church. Lessons are 3 hours long, include a light lunch and connect and enrich participants to culture, history and the essence of creativity besides hands on learning fun.

Below, are some highlights from Hosts Janice and Garry:

Hosts since the '80's, we understand and appreciate what makes our community special and we enjoy assisting those away from home or new to local culture and environment, to enjoy and experience themselves like a local . Established since 2002, the historic church known as St. James, was established as a home and an art studio that was custom designed and built into the 1900 historic stone Church's steeple. The Studio is a place where ideas are made, art created and creativity shared. It is also a place of welcome, learning, rest, relaxation and mindfulness. The church is a family homestead.

You can visit the Beveridge Lock Station Trails, a designated UNESCO heritage site located 3 km. from the Church.

Lanark County is known for its country flavours. From maple syrup to craft beer, handcrafted chocolate and local farmers' market, there is something special for everyone.

The Perth Farmers' Market is a hub of local wholesome goodness. Open every Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. from May to October at the Glass Palace beside the Tay River Basin. Great baked goods, soups, drinks, BBQ, organic meat/vegetables/fruits, flowers and just about everything wonderful from local producers and growers. A great place to spend a perfect Saturday morning and bring amazing ingredients back to the Church Homestead to enjoy during your stay.

Weatherhead Brew Company: We recommend this place for those who love craft beers. Warm ambiance where you can see how craft beer is made, sit in to enjoy beer/light lunch/snacks and take home favorite flavors. An easy 10 minute drive and a great place to meet up with friends and family.

Coutts' Country Flavours is just down the road from us: A fabulous place to pick up local organic produce straight from farmers. Owner and baker extraordinaire, Diane is always helpful and a wealth of knowledge about locally produced foods. A 5 minute drive from our place.

Another place we love is Jim's Snack Shack in Rideau Ferry where one can savor the best Fish and Chips on the planet. Don't let the wee 'Shack' fool you. The flavours from what Jim cooks is delicious and his portions are 'Lumber Jack' sized. Jim is friendly, generous and we highly recommend and appreciate what he does so well.

Guests can borrow our canoe, kayaks, paddle board, bicycles or skis, Provincial Park Pass upon availability to visit nearby trails, beaches and lakes with a $50 refundable equipment deposit. The groomed trails at Murphy's Point Provincial Park are superb.

Help yourselves to some courtesy welcome snacks and/or breakfast items in the Studio.

There are brochures and maps available. Best of all, we can refer and recommend the best of our community, terrific places to eat, shop, explore and to have fun.

Linens, towels, general kitchen ware are provided for your convenience.

With warmest welcome to our Church home, a country way of life and a brilliant unique creative space.

Janice, Garry and Family
