The entire area was peaceful and spiritual. The chapel was beautiful. We walked the signs of the cross and each was well appointed in their “own space”. Around rocks and trees, with great views of the bay. Huge evergreen trees surrounding the area. We walked along the coast as we heard their was whale sightings in the channel. We did... More

Too far a drive. We wasted 45 minutes round trip. While a pretty island, it was not worth the trip. We would prefer seeing more wildlife.

What a lovely, serene place this little gem north of town is. A short walk across the spit to a little island / peninsula and you find yourself enshrouded in a small forest with a chapel surrounded by little alters / markers depicting various moments of biblical lore. The viewing area overlooking Lynn Canal was especially serene and you can... More

This place is amazingly beautiful! Do yourself a favor and plan at least two hours,if not more to walk the grounds, take in the scenery and reflect. We were fortunate to be there in time for Sunday Mass. The peaceful simplicity of the inside of church building and mass, including the couple that played the violin and guitar was fitting... More

Truly a beautiful and peaceful location. Have tried to stay at some of the accommodations, but they were booked so far ahead.

This was an ice little stop. You park and walk on a little path to the church. The surroundings are gorgeous. Mass was going on while we were there so we didn't go in. I don't know if tours inside are available.

The Shrine is a beautiful location regardless of religious beliefs. If you are Roman Catholic is is a wonderful place to say a prayer either in the chapel or along the many paths.

The Shrine of St. Therese consists of the grounds and a lovely Church. It is also located right on the shores of the salt water. You may be fortunate enough to spot a whale or a sea lion. Numerous people fish for salmon off the rocks. There is a trail of the Rosary and a Maze for walking plus then... More

The shrine is in a beautiful secluded location about 20 miles north of downtown Juneau. We rented a car to get there. It is located on a tiny island that is accessible by foot. We found it to be a great place to take photos and spend a couple of quiet hours away from all the cruise ship activity. There... More

Had a car for the day. Drove out here on advice of the car rental staff. It was beautiful. We watched salmon jumping at the beach. Marveled at the beautiful rock beaches and toured the shrine. This is the perfect setting for a retreat.
