Beautiful setting in the midst of nature! Architecturally designed to allow natures wonders to be seen from inside. Peaceful. Great place to sit in the presence of the Lord yet sheltered from the elements.

Worth the trip out to the chapel. The chapel and surrounding area are stunning. Nothing else on the site to see but go anyway.

Very nice scenery. Beautiful chapel. Very quiet and respectful inside. Just sit and read the pamphlet on the chapels story and take it all in. On the way out I stopped to see a few young deer hanging out just a few yards off the path. It was a nice experience.

This is a very pretty place to visit set in a wooded area. Take a quick look, it's free. Just be courteous when taking pictures. You may get called out.

Quiet elegance. Quiet reflection. Even the grandkids were calm and respectful amid the beauty of the gardens reflected through the glass walls. A perfect place to visit halfway through a fast-paced vacation when a few minutes of peace can revitalize the spirit and the will.

As an architect, this building was a must-see for me. It did not disappoint! The siting, the design, the materials, the ambience. All could enjoy it, the ones with a artistic background and the ones without. The beauty of this masterpiece shouts out. I love that you can enter, seat yourself, and click away to your heart's content.

Took a side trip here from Eureka Springs, not very far to go to see such a visual wonder. 425 windows and over 6,000 sq ft of glass, in a woodland setting, make this a very contemplative place to visit. Would highly recommend a visit.

You cannot help but be inspired when you visit this beautiful chapel. The setting is in the woodlands of the Ozark mountains and this location is as peaceful as it gets. The architecture of the chapel itself is positively amazing, consisting of huge amounts of glass which allow you to view the forest and wildlife from within at almost any... More
