Very much like Thorncrown chapel. Everything about it is quite nice, but we visited immediately after Thorncrown ,so we found it a little underwhelming.

A wonderful place to visit in the Ozarks. The structure is made entirely of metal and glass so it can be a bit chilly in the winter months. There are often activities going on like weddings and memorial services. When it is vacant, it is a gorgeous sanctuary to enjoy the peace and solitude of the serene wooded hillside overlooking...

Filled with light, it is easy to feel surrounded by peace as you walk through the doors of this gorgeous chapel which is open to the public without charge. The trail from the parking lot to the chapel is handicap friendly and there is also a loop trail through the woods available.

The building is beautiful in a wooded setting. It actually sits near a lake, but the lake is hard to see through the trees. Check the calendar and try to go for a music event. The pews aren't the most comfortable, but the acoustics are good and the atmosphere unbeatable.

A short walk on a winding path into a beautiful woods-filled setting leads you to the most beautiful chapel I have ever experienced. E. Fay Jones designed this memorial to Mildred Cooper who was the wife of the founder of Bella Vista. The Chapel inspires silence as one absorbs the beauty of the graceful arches among the tree tops.

I have attended a wedding and two funeral services here. The atmosphere is serene and refreshing. The chapel is nestled in a forest environment and is delightful . There is a similar chapel over near Eureka Springs.

Absolutely beautiful chapel! Beautiful setting, amazing structure, and peaceful music playing. We liked this one even more than the Thorncrown Chapel in Eureka Springs. The fabric on the pues are neutral colors, so I would imagine a wedding with any color scheme would be gorgeous here. I wish there had been flyers about the chapel. There is an office there,...
