What a gorgeous setting in the forest...truly a place where man's touch and nature are beautifully intertwined!

This is a must-stop when in Eureka Springs! We loved how the chapel blended in with the forest and all the 4-sided, floor-to-ceiling glass of the chapel looked into the forest. We... read more

Very peaceful and they had someone to pray with you if necessary. Beautiful wooded area. Must be awesome during a Church service.

Never knew about this place. Glad my boyfriend knew and took us there. No words can come close to describing this place.
