Peaceful beyond measure

This was an oft-visited place of my adolescence. It is so quiet and peaceful here with views that on a clear day go on forever. Their stone altar is so beautiful!

My husband purchased a new touring motorcycle and we have been getting in some local sights. The last day trip we took was to Cathedral of the Pines. The views were spectacular on Mount Monadnock and the grounds were immaculate. Highly recommend!

This is a beautiful site, and very moving. While many, many trees were destroyed in the 2008 ice storm, the replanting and redesigning of the space is artful, and the Cathedral is still worth a visit.

Always a serene and thoughtful location. I wanted to visit again after 35 years and so glad we made the journey. An outdoor church service was a highlight on a beautiful Sunday morning. The meditation gardens are lovely. Seems there are many weddings taking place at this location and such a nice spot for a bride and groom.

We have had a beautiful service here honoring the life of my father in law in 2010, and in the summer of 2015, my mother in law. We were able to use the chapel for a service, the gardens to spread a bit of their ashes, and the picnic area with indoor/outdoor (rustic) seating for a social gathering afterward. The... More

Many many years ago we attended a wedding at this place. At that time it was a small area of wooden benches set into a copse of towering pines and overlooking a long sweep of valley to mountains beyond. We visited with nostalgia for the lovely and simple place we remembered, only to find a large stone tower playing a... More

We found this place using the interactive trip advisor map. Glad we found it. it is a beautiful setting, the garden behind the altar is beautiful. Nice to sit and just soak up the atmosphere. In the chapel right by the large monument you can find information on how this Cathedral of the Pines came to be. We enjoyed it.

I grew up with the Cathedral. One of my Uncles died in WWII, and was one of three servicemen from Rindge to do so. I personally knew Dr. Sloane who was a great friend of my Grandfather. Established to be a non-denominational shrine to remember those who died in all U.S. wars, men and women, it was placed beneath a... More
