El alojamiento
There is always a reason to celebrate family, friends and good fortune. Covid changed our lives immeasurably but has not been able to destroy the human spirit. We give thanks to all of the wonderful guests we have been able to host last year and this year in the midst of lockdowns and quarantines. We understand that travel is difficult and feel gratitude to those who chose AURA as their vacation destination. This year promises to bring a fresh chance to enjoy traveling outside of our bubbles.

As Covid has shown us, caring for ourselves has become very important.. We must be good to ourselves in order to have that positive energy to be good to others.

Entrance to AURA is via a unique 4 digit code (that you will be given shortly before your stay) which is deleted after each guest stay.

This property is nonsmoking and the policy will be strictly enforced. There is a tenant in the basement apartment so please be courteous. Noise curfew is at 9 pm outdoors and 10 pm inside and neighbors will ensure that this is enforced! **Please note that due to problems with excessive noise, a charge will be levied if neighbors complain and police are called. We want to maintain good relationships with our neighbors! You are welcome to celebrate and enjoy your stay but please be respectful of others nearby!

The careful and masterful conversion and restoration has been a large financial undertaking, and maintenance and improvements are constantly ongoing. We have made it possible to preserve such a beautiful and historic structure independent of governmental, public or corporate funding by inviting you as a friend to experience AURA. All proceeds from your special stay will go toward the continued funding for this meaningful project. We are extremely proud to share AURA with you. Thanks for helping us achieve this.

You deserve to FIND YOURSELF, in the most unprecedented, one-of-a-kind stay: A Historic Church as your home.

Please note that this is an 1800's historic building. Although it has been renovated and updated, many original features remain. The floors may be uneven and there are stairs up to the choir loft and down to the basement. Hand rails have been placed for your safety. There are step-downs to the main floor bathroom and the choir loft bathroom. Both have hand rails. Older guests with mobility issues may wish to consider this when reserving. The Church is not handicap equipped although many modifications have been made for those with mobility challenges. Children are always welcome but the Church is not childproofed for very young children.
