The Chapel has been well maintained and beautiful as ever. We have visited this Chapel on several occasions over past 30 years.

This is a beautiful chapel in the woods. You cannot drive up to it. You have to walk a couple of blocks in the woods. The AIA has recognized it as the 4th most important building in the 20th century.

Beautiful, peaceful, serene. Just be respectful. Set in the hills of the Ozarks and built among the cliffs. Just be respectful. It is that kind of a place.

Stopped in after breakfast and was surprised to find a service starting. Attended and was not disappointed. Great choir and pastor. Excellent architecture w all the glass. Very nice area in the trees.

Just as beautiful as the last time I visited. Very calm and serene. I do not hesitate to make a donation but it is not required.

This architectural marvel is so well- loved and preserved, I was so happy to see it again, sitting nestled in the forest. Frank Lloyd Wright could not have built a lovelier chapel in the woods.

This is great place to stop and visit. Very unusually building structure. The church is surrounded with trees so you won't have to worry about being burnt up by the hot soon. It is free by they do accept donations. Wee worth seeing.

We drove out to see this as I had heard about it for a long time. A presentation was underway inside, so we didn't enter.

A beautiful chapel, but it straddles the line between tourist attraction and church. Everyone is invited to "see" it, but not look. One must stay on the path, sit inside. A little stuffy attitude from the docent, but it's a must-see, just don't have high...More

Sorry for the tardy reply. Yes, it is wheelchair accessible although it is a long trek (about 200 meters) from the parking lot. Double doors allow for entry by wheelchairs.
