Amazing Chaple
Apr 2021
Really something to see! All glass & wood!
Like you are outside when you are inside!
I can see why people would want to get married in it. But it was closed the day we were there not sure if it was becuase of Covid or not.

Amazing Architecture!!!

The only thing missing was the ability to enter the building, due to the the COVID restrictions. Would love to come back and tour the inside of the chapel.

Beautiful and Free
Apr 2021
This striking chapel is set right in the beautiful woods. It was worth the drive. It is separate from the Garavan Garden with no entrance fee and it's short walk from the parking lot.

Closed for wedding
Apr 2021 • Couples
We were so disappointed! Not only did we pay for the Garven Woodland Gardens thinking we had to in order to see the chapel only to find out we didn’t need to. Also, we rearranged our day since this didn’t open until noon to make sure we could go in. It seems they could put a calendar online for days that it’s closed. What little we could see from a distance was beautiful.

Beautiful wedding venue
Apr 2021
My brother was married here on April 3, 2021. It's a beautiful venue and sparkling clean.

They were quite strict about social distancing inside the chapel and limited guests to 85 because they block off every other row. The only improvement I would make (which is too late now) is the addition of restrooms for the bride/groom and wedding guests. The closest restroom (in the groom's quarters) was locked and we had to walk all the way back in heels to the restroom at the entrance. It's a minor inconvenience so no big deal.

We viewed the Chapel after going through the gardens. The plants were beautiful to see. They have done a great job in making the gardens.

Absolutely beautiful. The chapel was closed due to COVID restrictions, but you could still look through the windows and tour outside. Want to go back when we can actually go inside it !

Would have loved to go inside - closed for COVID
Mar 2021
We enjoyed visiting the Anthony Chapel on a recent trip to Hot Springs. The location is magical and the building looks like it's from a fantasy movie. Would love to experience Sunday service there.
