A beautiful little side-stop. The chapel is unique . The gift shop is small , but has some nice Nordic inspired items. The museum is more of a replica of an old , single room cabin, but interesting none-the-less. A good place to stop and slow down for half an hour or more.

The lovely grounds and peaceful setting made for a quite break in the day. The people who are in the gift shop were very friendly and loved to share stories with us. We even saw some deer wander past. The craftsmanship of the church is amazing and definitely worth the stop.

The wood work in the chapel is extraordinary. It is still used for services and wedding sights. There is also a walk way that goes into a wooded area. It... More

Chapel in the Hills is a very unique attraction! The feel of the grounds is very European, the chapel is beautiful, and the story is wonderful. The details of the chapel are incredibly intriguing. Definitely stick around for the 7:30 Vesper service if you visit in the summer months!

Beautiful chapel with an interesting history. Love the woodwork and detail!! We enjoyed visiting the chapel, museum, gift shop, prayer walk and watching the deer in the area. No admission fees, just donations.

This place is amazing, it is a simple trip in town. The grounds are clean and refreshing with a small friendly gift shop for mementos.
