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

A lovely place to celebrate mass with the Sisters of St. Francis. Peaceful and open. 11 am daily

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.

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.
