Very welcoming and hospitable. Beautiful building and architecture. Grounds are well kept. The Grotto is very peaceful and tranquil (including steps for praying Rosary and Stations of the Cross). Great for meditation.

Growing up here, we take the "castle on the hill" for granted. Wonderful grounds, beautiful historic buildings, great nuns, gift shop, guided tours, special event center, retreats. Yes, it looks just like the picture, only better!
