I recently shared a trip to the Shrine with my mother. This was my third time walking up that trail and each time has been equally satisfying. Whether visiting while the snow is still on the ground, when the leaves are rust and gold or in the middle of the summer this is a beautiful and prayerful place.

We've passed by the Shrine a number of times on trips to and from La Crosse. Finally we decided to check it out. Very happy we did. Very serene. Lovely setting. Exceptionally well laid out and maintained. We took advantage of the tour of the main chapel which I can highly recommend. We got a real feel for this modern... More

What a beautiful place. Really worth the visit, even if you are not that religious. The view from the top of the bluff is great. The on site restaurant is nice and the people were all friendly!

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
