Built in 1869, in the style of Gothic Revival, the Manilla Church has been converted into a luxurious loft style abode. With open concept design and large gourmet kitchen it is a unique destination for a relaxing get away in the Kawarthas.

The Manilla Church is 5000 sq ft of luxurious modern space with a blend of original features from the 1800s. Once inside the triple brick stained glass gothic church, you're met by the open concept design with 30 ft ceilings supported by exposed hand carved Doulas Fir Beams. There are 3 large bedrooms with queen size beds and a Master Bathroom with a Jacuzzi tub and separate walk in shower. The space accommodates up to 7 guests per night via 3 queen beds, and one single bed.

During your stay at The Manilla Church we invite you to treat the space like home. You will have access to all amenities, and are welcome to relax in the backyard surrounded by beautiful English gardens.

Your privacy is important to us but we will be available should you require anything, as we live in a separate basement apartment in the home (with separate entrance and no shared areas).

I work as a Recording Engineer in Toronto and Sarah is a Kinesiologist travelling Canada and working from home when not on the road. I enjoy downtime at home, playing guitar and travelling. Sarah loves to cook, garden and bike ride and our canine friend Charlie likes take you for walks and curl up in your lap. We can speak a little bit of French, are in our 30's and think of ourselves as friendly and adventurous.
