  1. We offer discounted and free stays to pastors and their families. We allow up to 12 free one-night stays (weeknights) and 50% off weekends, when available. These are first-come, first-served.

      • Hi!
        . My husband is a pastor in Monroeville, PA. We are planning on making a trip through New England this summer and are in the processing of trying to find some inexpensive lodging. In doing a Google Search for pastor’s vacation rentals I came across your website :) I would love to have any information that you have. We will be traveling in the middle of July. Thanks!
        Cherie
