“This is a lovely chapel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

This is the spot of classic Teton photos. It is an excellent sunrise shot. We went very early and set up our cameras in the dark. Then one of our group went inside the church and lit up the windows with a flashlight. We did long exposures and the stained glass windows glowed. While you're there also walk down to Menor's Ferry. That is the way folks crossed the Snake River before there was a bridge. The little general store there as well as the building full of old carriages is a lot of fun.

Oh if you do go there early to catch the early morning light be careful of he holes. There are some animal made holes in the area in front of the church that are hidden by the sage. It's easy to step in one and sprain your ankle.

“Beautiful Church”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

This is a beautiful little church. The view from the altar window is unbelievable. Words cannot describe how you feel when you look out that window with the cross and the Tetons in the background. It makes an amazing picture. You feel absolute serenity when you are in the church looking out the altar window. You definitely feel God and the beauty He created when you are here. Make sure you check this little church out when you visit.

“Gorgeous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

Watch the movie Spencer's Mountain with Henry Fonda and Maureen O'Hara, then go to this chapel. You'll wonder how 100 people came out of that little chapel in the movie. Ring the bell, look at the Tetons through the inside chapel window. Sit and meditate. Say a prayer. Renew your marriage vows. The opportunities are endless. Check out Menor's Ferry while you're nearby and check out their little store.

“Tranquility base”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

A small, beautiful Episcopalian chapel, open to the public, charming, spiritual in it's dark log cabin atmosphere, with some
lovely stained glass and an awe inspiring view behind the altar of the Teton mountain range. The feeling I always
experience here is tranquility. The chapel has been witness to
all the range of human life--christenings, marriages and funeral
carriages, to paraphrase an old poem, and somehow, it always seems that it will be alright, that God is near.

“awe inspiring”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

walking up to the chapel, take time to ring the bell. this will help clear your thoughts and let in the beauty that unfolds before you. one of my favorite times is at dawn when mornings first light kisses the mountains and the fog swirls around the Tetons.
