  • This is a wonderful side stop if your in the area. The history of the abbey alone is worth stopping and checking it out. The grounds are absolutely amazing and are worth exploring if your in the mood....  more

  • (I'm a Buddhist, I say this with great respect and love ....) I visited 30 years ago. The visit has had a profound, and positive effect on my life. It still does. The Sanctuary is very beautiful, very simple. The sung Office (Chant) is tremendously moving. As is the (stillness of) silence. Christianity at its best. Thank you brothers.
  • We were there on February 15, 2022. It was very cold that day so we didn't walk the grounds, but will come back and do that. The Visitors Center is every nice. And the ladies working were so nice. We bought a Fruit Cake, and some fudge. Both were excellent!
