  • This is a hidden gem, literally, it is tucked away high above the cloud in the mountains. I arrived by bike, it took me nearly an hour and a half to walk the bike all the way up. The walk itself was a pilgrimage, by the time I arrived, I felt I could leave already. I spent some time meditating in the chapel. Great place with good energy. Make sure to check out the bookstore&gift shop, the energy there is very healing.
  • Beautiful place! Worth it for the view alone! Calm and quiet 2 mile road up the hill with gorgeous unobstructed views of the ocean. There are several benches along the way where you can sit and enjoy the view.
  • This is an outstanding place to stay and reflect.
  • The kindest people And the loveliest views
  • One of the most peaceful places I have found. The beauty of nature is amazing here.
