Historic meets modern in this unique studio. Built in 1872, this one-room church turned Airbnb provides a one-of-a-kind experience. Love Exploring featured our studio as The Most Stunning Airbnb In Indiana. The entrance to Monroe Lake at Fairfax is literally steps away, and it’s only 11 miles from IU and downtown Bloomington. This space is the perfect resting place after a day on the water or visiting IU. The circular driveway provides pull-through parking for a boat. Spacious yard and fire pit.

This space was beautifully remodeled with a wonderfully functional kitchen, and a comfortable sleeping area. The hosts kept the space immaculately clean, and added thoughtful touches, like a guide book to the space and local amenities.

It felt very home-y to us, and we didn’t want to leave! We had great weather and spent a bit of time outside. The backyard is not the most secluded of places, but thankfully it wasn’t a high traffic weekend. Overall, we loved the place and can’t wait to come back!!
