Magnificent views of the ocean and mountains in a very peaceful setting. As a spiritual retreat you'll need to be respectful of the purpose of the facility, but well worth the visit.

A beautiful site and chapel as you head north from downtown Juneau on "The Road". There's a Stations Of The Cross walk around the perimeter of the small hill where the chapel is sited. It's a short walk from the parking area across a causeway...More

We were brought here just for a quick stop, to see the area. It is beautiful and peaceful. The cabins look very nice from the outside, and apparently include several different options/sizes. I would honk this would be wonderful as a vacation get away.

Need I say more? Most likely you were stuck on a plane to get to Juneau, or worse a cruise ship. It's good to stretch your legs and this is that place. If you are time limited, I'm not sure how you could work in...More

Site is all of the above. Gorgeous walks through rocky beaches and forested pathways. Nice short walk to the beautiful little chapel/shrine on site.

A beautiful small place surrounded by gorgeous views. Make sure you go at a time when tourist crowds are not there to get the full peaceful and contemplative experience.

We were early in the season, so it was very quiet with very few people about. Beautiful setting and very peaceful.

You leave the glacier on the Glacier Spur Road, take a right on Mendenhall Loop Road to Auke Bay - there, the road "ends" at a loop and becomes Glacier Highway/Veteran's Memorial Highway - you'll head to the right on the... More

St. Therese is my namesake. Am coming to Juneau on a cruise in May and would like to visit. What is the best time during the day to visit? Will be in Juneau from 7 a.m. til 10 p.m. How far is it from the cruise port?

Any time is a good time. Open 08:30 - 08:00 during summer. It is about 22 miles from downtown Juneau. There is no bus service out there. Taxi from downtown probably $50-55 (one way). Might be cheaper to charter a car or... More
