The Haven on Vine was built in 1842 by Charles Baker (the son of Marion's founder, Eber Baker) and is the oldest standing home in the county. With a large basement and several second floor hiding spots, The Haven was also designed to serve as a station on the Underground Railroad.
The Haven was renovated as a bed and breakfast in 2011 and was acquired by Paradigm Shift Ministries, Inc. in 2015 to serve as their national headquarters. Weekly chapel services are streamed online via Periscope every Six Thirty Saturday Nite.
The Haven on Vine features three themed guest rooms (each with their own private bath). The rooms are designed to celebrate the region's rich history. Weekday and weekend rates are listed below, and long-term rates are available by phone.
Nightly rates include a homemade breakfast, air conditioning, cable TV, wireless internet and access to both the Chapel and spacious front porch. Brochures and travel guides are available in the main hall. The Haven is within walking distance of the Harding Home and within a mile from the Harding Tomb.
The Haven is available for retreats from short sabbaticals to week-long events. Please contact us for more information and pricing.
The Presidential Room is our largest room with king bed and mini fridge. It is decorated to celebrate Ohio's eight presidents: William Henry Harrison, Ulysses S. Grant, Rutherford Hayes, James A. Garfield, Benjamin Harrison, William McKinley, William Howard Taft and Marion's own Warren G. Harding.
