Beautiful architecture

The setting is peaceful and serene. The chapel a beautiful work of art. Just a short walk from the parking lot. Glad we went.

It's a short walk to the chapel from the parking lot. There is an attendant that gives you an information brochure. You are asked to have a seat. It is a quiet place to sit and enjoy the beauty.

Amazing...that is all I can say. Don't miss a chance to visit. (TripAdvisor is requiring me to use 100 characters and I am trying to do that...)

What a beautiful chapel, surrounded by nature makes this for a perfect setting for quiet reflection. Even if you only have a few extra minutes, this place is worth the stop.

The chapel is architecturally very interesting. We listened to hymns sung by a woman with a beautiful voice. It is a place where you can renew your spirit.

Better than I expected. I'd really looked forward to visiting the chapel during my visit to the area, and it did not disappoint. From the moment you step on the path to the chapel you understand you're visiting somewhere special. Upon entering, you can feel you're somewhere holy. I highly recommend taking 30 minutes out of your trip to visit.

This is an iconic structure architect Fay Jones, who was a student of Frank Lloyd Wright. It is a popular place to get married. There is a sister chapel in Bella Vista called Cooper Chaple about an hour west.

My family visited on a sunny spring day and were greeted by a serene chapel with wonderful music. The very talented musician who provided the music greeted us and told us about the chapel.

Thorncrown chapel is amazing! So serene and peaceful. A beautiful place to feel God's presence and get away from the world for a while.

Great place for me to stop and re-center myself. Quiet with a beautiful setting. Sometimes there is someone there to answer question.
