  • What a nice way to spend a couple of hours! You get a real sense of how the monks lived. The architecture is amazing and the gardens are so pretty. We even got the organ being played which made it seem more special. The drive up was pretty and easy. Parking was free and the the lot was big. Bathrooms are clean. The gift shop is nice and it's easy to find things you'd like to buy.
  • Beautiful place to visit, full of history and tranquility. The Cistercian architecture style is truly remarkable in its simplicity. I could have spent hours just sitting in the cloister. Filled my heart with peace.
