“A welcome place of solitude and prayer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

A quiet and prayerful place to stop and recharge the battery. the Monks are most welcoming and their bread store is a stop not to be missed.

“Serene and Quiet”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

Stop by the out of the way Abbey. This is where the famous Monk's bread is made. You won't see the actual operation but you can buy bread made within the hour. It is a wonderful gift shop. Take a look at the church and you may be lucky to be there when the monks are having mass.

“beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2012

A serene, beautiful site. Their church is very nice, the mass will renew your faith and the little store has the Monk's bread, jams, etc., that they are known for.
