id you ever dream of falling asleep in church without feeling guilty about it? Here’s your chance. The Belfry Inne and Bistro offers accommodations in a converted Catholic church. Original beams and archways poke into the odd-shaped guest rooms, some of whose windows are stained glass and whose beds are made, in part, of wood from the original church pews. There’s a standout romantic restaurant downstairs, under the soaring original church ceilings.

The 1872 mansion beside the Belfry Inne, which also has guest rooms, was built for the owner of a clothing and provision store who sold it in 1920 to the Diocese of Fall River to be used as a rectory.
