“Beautiful views.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

Take your camera for some great shots from the tower. The surrounding countryside is just beautiful in the fall. We will go back to see spring in bloom.

“Beautiful historic”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

A great place to visit and take others to see. Climb the tower, visit the gift shop and take in a service here. You won't regret.

“Absolutely beautiful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

Sitting high on a hill overlooking the beautiful surrounding landscape. Whether you attend a mass or just go to experience the beauty of the area, you won't be disappointed. Camera is a must. Fall colors just enhance the beauty of this spiritual location.

“Do not stay in the filthy and dilapidated retreat center!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

We decided to stay in the Old Monastery rooms (slightly newer section was booked) and was shocked at the dust-covered and spartan rooms here. I have done many retreats at various places and understand that simplicity is normal. However, dead flies in every window and sill, rat poison in stair well cubbies, rotting wooden stairs, and lack of smoke detectors, security measures, and general lack of presence of anyone actually working there was appalling. The whole place needs a major renovation and updating to be in code. We left at midnight to find a nearby hotel as staying here was too disturbing. This place is living on its laurels.

Whether it's the view of the building from a distance or the view of the landscape from one of the towers, or the magnificent interior --- Holy Hill is beautiful, just beautiful!!!!
