AN INTIMATE, INCLUSIVE FAMILY-OWNED
SANCTUARY IN THE MEADOWS.
The Little Chapel at Haven Ridge is first and foremost, a private family-owned sanctuary. A true hidden gem, nestled among sprawling meadows in the city that transports its visitors to a setting straight from an old world fairytale. A dream nurtured for nearly two decades, every square inch of this 16th-century-inspired stone chapel, spanning a modest 600 square feet, has been meticulously handcrafted with devotion by artisans from North Carolina. It seamlessly marries modern craftsmanship with historical treasures, including a 150-year-old stained glass door, 200-year-old clay monk roof tile, and bricks that have withstood the test of over 500 years, orginating in England.
To our family, the 56+ acre property holds a special place in our hearts. It's not just a sanctuary for worship and celebration; it's also a testament to our deep connection to the land where we, as children, were raised and where we have now grown our own families. We continue to live here and actively manage its operations, embodying our commitment to protect and cherish the surrounding environment, keeping it sacred for generations to come. In the spirit of The Blessing song lyrics written on the stained glass window, 'May His favor be upon you and a thousand generations, and your family and your children, and their children, and their children', it is a place where marriages unite, bonds are formed, and radiant love spreads.
The Little Chapel's slogan is, "Rooted in love", a mantra the Bradford family conveys through the inclusive community they are cultivating here. The Little Chapel is a symbol of hope, peace, and a reminder
that no dream is impossible or too small.
At the end of the day, we extend a warm invitation to make our "Little" sanctuary a cherished part of your upcoming next chapter together.
