This is a glass chapel & it is very pretty!! I think it would be pretty to get married there in winter & watch snow falling from above. The architecture is spectacular. There is also Thorn Crown Chapel in Eureka Springs which is much like this but more spectacular with more glass. Both are very pretty!! There is also a... More

This chapel was designed by Fayetteville resident Fay Jones, a student of Frank Lloyd Wright. The chapel is somewhat similar in feel to Eureka Springs' Thorncrown Chapel (another chapel that is worth a visit, if you are nearby). This chapel, even more than Thorncrown, seems to settle quietly into the forest, as if it had been there for years and... More

What a hidden gem this is. I did not see it listed in my AAA book or any of the Arkansas freebie magazines you pick up.

A short walk through a lovely park will take you to this wonderful chapel in the middle of the forest. Nice for just sitting quietly in nature, or taking a break from daily life. Wonderful short stop even if you are just passing by Bella Vista on the way somewhere else. The architecture is inspiring as well.

My husband proposed to me here and then we married here 23 years ago! If you are in the area it is a must see! Pictures do not do this chapel justice.

My wife and I will use this chapel to renew our vows this summer. The chapel is incredibly beautiful and nestled in the woods. There is a lake a short distance away. This chapel is great to just go to and visit or meditate. Or you can pay a reasonable amont and reserve for weddings.

Very nice walk down to the chapel. Chapel is beautiful. The back of the chapel looks like its open but its not. So be careful not to walk through the glass a lot have tried this with not so good results.

this is an outstanding building in a beautiful location. Well worth going out of your way to see. The entire city of Bella Vista is an outstanding place to visit or live.
