Enjoyed the beautiful colors of the Fall leaves, nice place to visit and walk around. A little bit hard to get to if you are not familiar with the area. Worth stopping by, free but leave a donation to help support.

We had no idea this existed, but were thrilled we stopped. I grew up in Europe, and visiting the Chapel in the Hills took me back to winters in Norway. The grounds are perfectly maintained, the hosts gracious and friendly, and the architecture visually stunning and emotionally moving. The entire site is tranquil and reverent. I wanted to stay for hours! Don't forget to go visit the statue garden in the rear woods.

Nice spot to relax and enjoy the quiet. No amusements or anything, just a nice spot. And it's free. Be sure to see the restored settler cabin to get an idea how our ancestors lived. If you can, go there just before sunset, you'll probably see the deer that come down to feed on the grass.

A great little chapel to visit and a lovely walk in the woods with markers about its history. A small gift shop offers native and handmade items.

Very pretty chapel. We stopped just to take a look and get some pictures. It is a neat thing to check out in the area.
