We walked all over the inspirational grounds and absorbed the peaceful vibrations. Although there were others around, we did not feel crowded and were able to let the beauty and serenity sink in. One things we found amazing were the piled stones people had done on top of the boulders on the shoreline. These must have started spontaneously and caught... More

This is simply a lovely place manifesting people sense of the "holy" in this regions. Very picturesque and evocative of solitary people on spiritual retreat on a unique formation that is both stilling AND stimulating as we saw an eagle dismantling a salmon right in front of us, seals and a fragrance of Sitka roses lightly in the air.

Saw salmon beginning spawning run in stream on this property. Was closed for retreat over weekend but opened later in week. Walk out to island where church is located. Eagles too. Pretty gardens and benches to rest. Easy walk.

We had visited this beautiful and somewhat mysterious place before and simply had to go back. Even if you are not Roman Catholic, and even if you are not religious, you cannot help but be touched by the stark beauty and the mysticism of this very special location. A "must" visit!!

Beautiful small chapel on a quiet spit of land surrounded by water on 3 sides. The parking lot is a good 1/2 to 2/3 of a mile from the hotel, so no heels. Great place for quiet reflection.

The church and crucifix are heart warming. Make sure to walk over to the stream on the south side of the shrine? We saw many (chum) salmon spawning. Very Impressive.

Another wonderful and FREE thing to see/do in Juneau! This is a really beautiful, serene and peaceful little retreat/monument/garden with pretty spectacular views. Even the non-religious would enjoy a walk around this place. The chapel is really lovely and just so peaceful. The gardens and flowers are beautiful and so well tended to. Leave an hour or so to stroll... More

We went for a drive and stumbled upon this and eagle beach. This is a very beautiful old church on beautiful grounds. We went on our own (no tour) and just walked down the path to the church. Many beautiful shrines and gardens and a lovely large crucifix. This along with the scenic drive along the highway and a visit... More
