This is a special, special place. The grounds are beautiful, the path up to the church is very nice, there are attendants that will take you up to the church if you cannot walk that far, and the church is beautiful. The candle chapel is beautiful. And the restaurant is very good, with good value for wonderful food.

The surroundings are beautiful but go in warmer weather, it is a hike up to the church. They did have a cart to take you up which was nice in zero temps. Great place to pray and reflect. Brunch was good, variety of foods but some items could have been warmer.

Love the setting and the beautiful artwork. Not Catholic, but well worth the visit. Good restaurant too.

The Shrine is a modern building devoted to the Virgin, beautifully appointed. The 100-acre grounds include a visitors' center, a rosary walk, stations of the cross, a friary, and a votive chapel. Peaceful, with wonderful vistas of the farm and wood lands nearby. We visited for an hour and went on refreshed in mind, body and spirit.

We had reservations for 20 following a baptism. When we arrived the cafe' was busy and we waited for 30 minutes before we could go to the buffet. When we went through the line there was no lettuce salad, the toppings as well as the dressings were gone, the fruit salad as well as the rolls were gone. The bacon... More

Want a quiet hour or so to reflect on your place in the universe? Take a walk up the hill to the cathedral enjoying the woods and shrines on your way; a must-see in this area

This is a must see and pray place for Catholic travelers especially. The church is amazing and the outdoor shrine to the unborn is moving.

After viewing many many cathedrals in europe, this one doesn't have the wow impact, however, it is still a very beautiful and very special place, even if you are not religious. The grounds and property are well manicured. The highlight for me wasn't the big church that you see in the picture (very beautiful inside), but the votive chapel. The... More
