The chapel and office was designed by a student of Frank Lloyd Wright. The setting in among the trees and limestone bluffs is perfect for a quiet moment with the Almighty. The unique design with 6000 feet of glass windows and crossed wooden beams provide an unforgetable experince.

You don't have to be religious or even a person of faith to appreciate the beauty, serenity & magnanimously breathtaking marvel of this site.. The first time I visited it was when my wife ( now of 23 years ) and I ( we were dating at that time ) visited it back in 1990, only 10 years after it... More

What an amazing peaceful & serene place to worship your Higher Power. I strongly advise anyone that is traveling to stop for a moment and take in the beauty of this chapel. I will be stopping by again when I am down in that area.

A very lovely, serene place that makes you feel at peace and closer to God. It's nestled in the woods. Sitting in the sanctuary, there is a peace that comes over you. Like sitting in nature.

This turned out to be a highlight of Eureka Springs, though I had never heard of it. What an amazing design, it feels like you are outside when you are inside, and every detail is impeccable. I can't explain the feelings from being there, and think it would be different for everyone, the most beautiful chapel I have ever seen.

I knew there was a reason I loved this chapel and it is because it was designed and built by a student of Frank Lloyd Wright. It is a majestic building and in such a pretty spot. Please be respectful when you enter and only take pictures when you are sitting down (as the sign states).

This is perhaps the most beautiful chapel I have ever seen. The chapel has glass all around and above, so you can look out and see the beauty of the trees and the sky above. What an inspiring place.

The location is beautiful. This chapel is surrounded by woods and rock bluffs. It's is breath taking. I wish we had gotten married there. I can imagine flowers and it is absolutely picturesque. Even if u r just driving thru, it is definitely worth the stop.
