Pretty grotto featuring intricate, detailed 'art'.

This amazing grotto has so much to offer in the way of detailed stone/glass work. Holy images as well as patriotic ones all done by one man many years ago. Tiny pieces of glass... read more

When we pulled up to the Grotto, I was surprised that there was a young girl sitting at the entrance wanting a donation! Usually, there is an area in the gift shop or church for donations to be given (without be asked), so this really surprised me. This Grotto is small compared to others that I have seen. Not anything... More

This amazing grotto has so much to offer in the way of detailed stone/glass work. Holy images as well as patriotic ones all done by one man many years ago. Tiny pieces of glass and beautiful stones help to make up this very welcoming and peaceful place. There is a gift shop with many items and the prices are reasonable.... More

Just amazed that someone could gather all the material necessary and have the time to build this amazing grotto. Since I am not an artist, I am also amazed with the instinctive and intuitive characteristics these people possess.

Kitschy, but a great example of religious devotion and a neat thing to see. Worth a detour off the highway to view.

This was just one of those 'oddities' that you see along the state highways. It's definitely worth a stop. Very unusual!

I have been wanting to stop at the Grotto for years. My husband grew up in the area so he thought it was not worth the stop. We finally made the trip and it was wonderful. My girls loved everything about it and I thought it was very inspiring and uplifting.

We were passing through this way and had a new teen with us who had never seen this. If you haven't been here or haven't been here in awhile, it is awe-inspiring to stop and look at. You will just be amazed to see everything that went into making this structure. It is interesting to take note of the little... More

If you live in Wisconsin or are passing through the area, this is definitely a one of kind road stop attraction. There is a suggested donation of $2 and it takes 10-30 to wander around and take in all the intricacies. A lot of time and thought was put into this folk art and the result is pretty amazing. Be...

You definitely have to get out of your car to appreciate the workmanship and the wonder that has gone into this. We saw people drive by, stop and take pictures but to truly appreciate this you need to see it up close. When we first pulled up, I was not impressed but when I got closer, I was taken back... More
