a peaceful and humbling experience. Just a short drive from town, an unexpected treasure. Regardless of your religious affiliation, you will be touched by the peace and beauty of the chapel and surrounding grounds.

If driving out the road, definitely take 10 minutes to stop at this beautiful place. The caretakers lovingly tend the flower gardens every summer and the location (in any season) is breathtaking. There are clean bathrooms (“real” toilets; not porta potties) and near the bathrooms...More

This was my second time to the shrine. My sister and I had visited 9 years go. I knew I wanted to bring my husband. It is a beautiful location. The shrine is so peaceful. The information our driver gave us was very informative.

This is a beautiful & quiet place to take at least a moment for inner reflection. The walk out to the chapel gives one time to take in the unique view of the chapel sitting on its island. Enter the chapel, when the door closes...More

The Shrine of St. Therese was such an amazing surprise. This was my third trip to Juneau and we rented a Jeep which allowed us to take off on our own adventure. This is one of the most peaceful places I have ever been and...More

Great trip out here to visit the chapel, walk the stations of the cross, learn the history and view the outstanding scenery around it all. Well worth the trip.
