  • We visited this chapel before going to the Thorncrown Chapel. Both are lovely, we did prefer Thorncrown because of The mountainous setting. This chapel is lovely and very peaceful.  more »
  • Went to a wedding here and it was absolutely beautiful. There was plenty of seating and gave a very intimate feel for the ceremony.  more »
  • You really must see this amazing chapel if you are anywhere near Bella Vista. Designed by E. Fay Jones it is, to me, as stunning as any of his work. More impressive thou is the peace and beauty not only of the building but the grounds. The surrounding walking trails are paved and have benches throughout. Lake Norwood is visible though the trees, more so in Fall and Winter. I’m somewhat surprised that is not pushed more as a tourist attraction given its unique beauty, but I’m glad most days you’ll find it very peaceful and quiet.
  • This little chapel is a hidden gem. Once inside there is just a peacefulness that enshrouds you. The glass interior makes you feel as if you are one with the forest around you. It's difficult to convey the emotions that are evoked when entering. The architecture is unique and modern yet feels as if it is from an age long past. This would be a gorge place for a fairytale wedding or just to sit and meditate and feel at peace and connected with the spiritual and natural world.
