Worth the time to see it. Even the walk up to the chapel is wonderful

The chapel is a must see for anyone new to the area or visiting the area. It is in a very peaceful and beautiful setting. I also recommend the walk around the chapel on the path.

What an architectural wonder! Built in the 70s to honor the wife of Bella Vista founder, John Cooper, the Cooper Chapel is one of the crowing achievements of Architect E. Fay Jones, a student of Frank Lloyd Wright. It's beautiful and peaceful, set in the middle of a forest among one of Bella Vista's beautiuful lakes, open to all for... More

An incredible structure nestled in the woods on the lake. Very peaceful and reflective. Have visited several times.

Beautiful chapel, beautiful setting - all quite perfect! Very easy to get to off Route 49. We went from there to Bentonville to the Walmart Museum (very fun) and Chrystal Bridges Museum of Early American Art (a must see). All in all, a lovely day.

This lovely chapel is nestled in the woods next to a little lake. It was so quiet and peaceful, I loved it. There are walking trails to enjoy too. I had a very hungry teen with me so we did not walk on the trails. This chapel was designed by the same person that designed Thorncrown Chapel in Eureka Springs.... More

Love this place. Even just to sit in the quite, to think, or pray. Just beautiful! There is even a trail around it. Beautiful walk, and you get with nature.

This structure is beautifully designed, like something out of Lord of the Rings at Rivendell. It is booked solid for weddings, I am told, so it is hard to see on weekends, though not impossible. A reception area is very close, so this is great for ceremonies.

I love the Cooper Chapel! It is a great place to visit; Fridays are the best day to go since that is the day they have no weddings, and other days it is hit-and-miss whether or not it will be closed due to a private event. I recently held my wedding there and had a great experience--you don't need to... More

This chapel is in a very quiet, wooded area in Bella Vista, AR. It is beautiful with all of its arches. Personally I liked this chapel better than the Thorn Crown Chapel near Eureka Springs, but both offer a wonderful peaceful setting for reflection.
