“Calming”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2014

I am not a spiritual person but going into this chapel had such a calming affect on me that I just had to take a few minutes to say a special prayer. As you walk you are greeted and handed a brochure about the chapel. Soft music was playing. Take a seat and enjoy the sights and sounds.This is a must see when in the area.

“Peaceful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

So peaceful. Even just a few minutes of quiet in this beautiful location is refreshing. Wish I was going to be here on a Sunday to take party in a service.

“Beautiful Architecture”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

My wife and I love the Thorncrown Chapel and we were glad we got to experience with our kids this time. Both the chapel and the worship center are architectural beauties that are worth the trip to see. If you get the chance, go on Sunday and enjoy a service but either way this is a must visit when you are in the area. Be careful on the turn in as it seemingly comes out of nowhere and a lot of drivers make the turn in at the last moment. Beautiful chapel and highly recommend.

“Quiet/Serene”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

Beautiful structure, with a very peaceful surrounding. They offer lots of weddings and of course you can attend church services on Sunday morning if you choose to.

“Beautiful visit in Eureka Springs”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

A splendid example of woodwork and glass without a totally wooded settings. Only a short walk from the parking area. The chapel is only 10 minutes out of town and only takes a few minutes to see. Your time will be spent sitting and enjoying the beauty of the structure, the peaceful of nature and the surroundings, and the spirit of the chapel.
