I have always admired the art of Stephen Hunek but was not prepared for the emotional experience of seeing the Dog Chapel. It is a journey to get to the site passing through the beautiful town of Montpelier, which has some very nice restaurants and a great place for a stop. As you travel past pretty lakes and scenery you... More

Set in the beautiful hills of Vermont (see photo) this unique attraction is the lasting tribute to our furry friends. If you love dogs then go. The Chapel is a place to pay tribute to a lost companion and feel the love others have expressed there for their dogs. There is a trail you and your dog can walk, a... More

We live in Vermont and have passed the sign dozens of times but one nice afternoon decided to turn into the driveway. We had our dogs with us (as usual) and at the Dog Chapel, they have free run, no leashes. The gallery is unique and fun, the Chapel is a beautiful building. Inside the Chapel there is barely a...

If you go the website for Dog Mtn or Stephen Huneck you will see the story of this amazing place. It needs to be protected and maintained for all to enjoy. Please consider a supporting, monetary gift in whatever amount is comfortable for you. The love and spirit that created the art and the mountain needs to be sustained. Give... More

Stephen Huneck was an incredible artist/dog lover and built a lasting tribute to mans best friend (and cats) by the construction of this remarkable and unique chapel. I guess it is not too strange, but clearly it brings out emotion and feeling for those that visit. The chapel is nicely constructed and visitors participate by writing notes on favorite pets...

Cute little chapel with unique statues. Worth a look, especially for dog lovers. Not very handicapped accessible.

While the occasional town or city may have an individual statue or memorial for special heroic dogs this is the place where all other dogs may be remembered and honored. The entire interior of the chapel's walls are festooned with photographs, poems, post-it notes celebrating our "special" ordinary canine friends. We, who are lucky enough to live with dogs, know...

Dogs are welcom on Dog MOuntain to explore the fields, creeks, ponds as well as the Art Gallery and tiny church. This is a true New England style chapel, built by a noted artist a few years ago, to honor the souls of dogs we have loved. There is a sweet little doggie door, beautiful stain glass windows, incredible artwork,... More
