Great place to stop in and see, awesome architecture and surroundings and its right off the road. There is no cost but they do ask for donations to keep it open.

Words simply will not do this stunning chapel justice! Beautifully nestled into the hillside, the combination of glass and steel give way to a most amazing landscape. The surroundings are serene, giving a great sense of calm and peacefulness. I hope to return later in the fall season on my next visit in order to enjoy the splendor of the... More

We just arrived in Eureka Springs and took a Sunday afternoon drive. We saw the signs to the Chapel and spontaneously pulled in. We could barely see the chapel for the lush trees- but then we saw the framework- she is one with the woods. We slowed as we approached this simple yet spectacular building and entered in silence.

This is a must see if you are in Eureka Springs, but you should carefully plan because they are very booked with weddings and other events. The staff attendant told us that a European bride and groom paid all travel and hotel costs for 50 people to fly from Europe to Eureka Springs to be part of the wedding ceremony... More

Very special chapel in the trees. Hushed, sacred feeling here. Wonderful building. I imagine a wedding here would be out of this world. Sunlight or candlelight? Either would be stunning. This place made me want to softly sing a verse of Amazing Grace. Beautiful.

It was really blessing. Chapel was beautiful an old construction in the middle of the trees. There was a wedding at 3.00pm and we were on time just before 3.00pm to visit the chapel

The chapel is very beautiful and it's story is interesting to read. It seems a little odd that you must remain seated while inside the chapel, even if you want to take pictures, but not a big deal in order to see the cool architecture. To me, it was about a 5 minute visit, so hardly worth the effort to... More
