“Heaven on Earth”
Reviewed February 14, 2013

This is one place you need to visit when in Sedona. It is on a high hillside and the views are outstanding. There is a gift shop below the chapel area. the road to the chapel is off hwy 179 near the intersection of 89A. The house at the foot of the chapel is a palace and we were told the owner spent millions on the landscaping which includes several magnificent waterfalls and beautiful gardens. We jokingly referred to the home's owner as being the king of Sedona. The view from the chapel itself and its grounds is a photo stop for sure. Don't miss it!!!

“Amazing Views”
Reviewed February 14, 2013

Love the views from the Chapel, its worth a visit. There is parking near the top but most of the parking is near the bottom with a 10 min uphill walk to the chapel if you park at the bottom.

“Good for a quick trip”
Reviewed February 13, 2013

just drive up to the 2nd tier (there's parking lot in the 1st level, you can pass it and drive up to the 2nd parking lot up). the view is beautiful from there and the church structure is a beauty. this trip should take you less than 30 min tops. nice and quick with landscape backdrops.

“A beautiful, quick Sedona outing.”
Reviewed February 12, 2013

This is a beautiful chapel set in some stunning Sedona rocks. It has a great little history and some pretty spectacular views from the top. It can get a little busy on the weekends, but not enough to take away from the experience. Don't forget to look for the falcon set in the cliffs to the right. Overall, a fun little Sedona gem.

“Spiritually Uplifting”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

This is a must see while visiting Sedona. This gorgeous chapel built into the red rock in the mid 1950's is both inspirational and serene. Be sure to read the history of it's inception outside the doors before you go in to make your three wishes.
