Bought the bee-honey that the nuns sell. Delicious. Do not leave without purchasing the creamed honey for toast and bagels. Heavenly!!!!

“Rochester's Castle”
Reviewed December 23, 2011

As far as I know the interior is no longer open to the public. With sections leased by Mayo and and other sections still used as a home for the Sisters. However the architecture is beautiful, it sits on a wooded hilltop presiding over Rochester like a castle. Rumor has it that Hugh Heffner once tried to buy the place, but The Catholic Church turned him down.

“A jewel on the hill”
Reviewed December 3, 2011

The Franciscan sisters built a facility that is reminiscent of what one would find in Italy. The chapel is beautiful and if you have a chance try to take a tour of the facility. This is a wonderful respite from the high tech Mayo Clinic.
