Heavenhill is an unhosted 2 bedroom 2 bath furnished guesthouse. Nestled at the end of Bridge street, it provides privacy and peace and quiet. HH is just blocks away from the historic square and 100 yards from the convention center, city beach and Hewlett Park. If you like Antiquing, we are directly behind Witherspoon’s Antique Mall (a favorite)!

This is a unique home as it has an old barn, chicken coop and a nice lazy back porch that overlooks big old pecan trees.

Also, are you needing a place for a unique luncheon? Vintage Photography Session? Gallery/Studio for your art? HH is available to rent for day use as well!

    We found Josephine Heavenhill and Little Louise Miller "Cross of the Heart" Jan 1893 written on a piece of beadboard during renovation! I then researched Josephine and found out all sorts of neat stuff about her! Hence the name of the home~ Heavenhill!

  • Barn

    The barn was actually part of a house located on the north side of town. It was moved to the present location in 2004 and converted into a barn. Maybe, one day, it will be another "guesthouse" with a studio feel... stay tuned!
