Easy to get to and every bit as stunning as the glass chapel in Eureka Springs and much easier to get to from Bentonville or Fayetteville. What a great place to hold a small wedding.

My boyfriend and I rode the Harley to Bella Vista just to visit this unique bit of architecture in the woods. The walking path leading to the chapel is a fun little trek with lovely views of the river. Inside the chapel it is peaceful, quiet, and blends perfectly with the scenery. I was most impressed and it was worth... More

As we left Bella Vista we decided to see the chapel and we are so glad we did! The architecture is striking, but the peace that the natural beauty affords is astounding. This chapel is truly the gem of Bella Vista.

Wonder though the woods and they open up to this beautiful chapel. Wish we knew of this place a few years back might have gotten married there.

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. Thank goodness for a knowledgeable staffer at the visitor's center in Bentonville or we would never have see this amazing tribute. As everyone says, it is beautiful. We stopped on a Saturday on our... More

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.
