"Champing" in Renovated Churches is the Hot New Travel Trend You Should Know About
Sitting above a waterfall, this charming central-Texas chapel is furnished with gorgeous antiques and boasts three private bedrooms and a large commercial kitchen. Some of our favorite features include a rectangular claw foot bathtub for two in the top of the steeple, two aromatherapy showers, stained glass windows, and a covered porch.
Burai-An Church House
We love that this former church in the heart of New York’s Finger Lakes region still maintains all of its original 1870 details—stained glass, soaring arches, woodwork and more. Plus, it’s a short trip to nearby Cayuga Lake.
The Leibhardt Church
This 115 year old Catskills church has been immaculately transformed into a top-notch family getaway spot with a heated saltwater pool, a secluded outdoor hot tub, a small pine forest, vegetable garden, and fruit trees.
Martha's Vineyard Parsonage and Church
West Tisbury, MA
There is so much to love about this unique two-building rental. The adjoining former church and parsonage has been meticulously renovated, and the result is a Fixer Upper fan’s dream. Soaring ceilings, crisp white walls, exposed wooden beams, and scattered industrial touches made this gem an easy choice for an champing list.
Urban Church Loft
Formerly St Vincent de Paul, this converted loft space is a true urban oasis. The building is inhabited by Brooklyn's creatives, which means you'll share the halls with local artists and entrepreneurs. Up a wrought iron staircase and past the church’s original wooden beams, you’ll find the master bedroom lit from above by a skylight.
