Spectacular!

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.

What a beautiful and inspiring space. I imagine it helped that we visited in the off season, so the chapel and the grounds were very still and peaceful. We had our children with us, and while they were somewhat interested in the architecture, mostly they lost interest pretty quickly. We, as adults, could have stayed much longer and lost ourselves...

I found this chapel to be even more beautiful than Thorncrown in Eureka Springs or Anthony Chapel in Hot Springs. While there is no doubt beautiful things about the chapel themselves and scenery at each location, this one is my favorite due to its beauty! I was in a wedding here once and it was wonderful for the bride and... More

Architecturally beautiful with an equally beautiful setting. A great place for quiet reflection in the chapel or walking the short trail overlooking a lake. All of our first time visitors will be treated to this experience.
