You need to drive there because it's in the woods. It's very unique and serene. We went on a weekday, and there were a steady stream of visitors.

I read about this architectural marvel...as you walk up to this picturesque Chapel in the woods, you realize it is much more than a work of art but a place to connect spiritually. Take a moment to reflect and this special place will be much more than a stop during your travels.

This does not take a great deal of your holiday time, but worth the time. Take at least fifteen to 30 minutes to enjoy the senrenity. The guide at the door will provide histor iCal information.

I visited one afternoon while we were in Eureka Springs. They do close for weddings and other special events. I was happy to see they were open when I drove by. It is a very serene experience. I went inside and sat for about 10 minutes, enjoying the scenery and quiet solitude. There are many people that walk in and... More
