Guest Stays

Unleash JoyGuest stays reflect that one aspect of House of Hope’s ministry is the house itself! Our beautiful Victorian home is a place of peace, beauty, and the tangible presence of God. House of Hope is nestled in the historic Wellington Heights neighborhood of Cedar Rapids. We are within walking distance of downtown, Brucemore mansion, and other conveniences, including a grocery store, coffee shop, and other local businesses.

We invite you to explore the different levels of guest stays and find that connection point that works best for you!
