  • What a beautiful and tranquil place! Came here during my trip to Portland and was totally taken back by the scenery. A good size of the ground is open to the public free of charge, however, to truly enjoy this place you have to pay $6 to visit the 26 acres garden, it is definitely worth every penny! If you are stressed or just want to unwind after a long day or week, visit The Grotto, you won't regret it!

  • A beautiful religious place to visit. You can come here to pray and enjoy a peaceful time. Lots of greenery and beautiful view. There is famous Christmas lighting during holiday seasons, great to bring family to visit.

  • It's cool. Lots of stuff to look at but make sure to give yourself time to look at stuff so check the times. And look in all the building because they got cool stuff hidden.

  • Sweet ladies at the gift shop. 2 aspects-lower level of the mountain and the upper level. Was a spiritial experience for me The garden is reflective of the beauty of our faith.

  • What a beautiful peaceful place to visit! A great energy and beautiful roses and butterflies everywhere when you get to the peace garden,small waterfalls, cute gift shop and a view you'll have to see for yourself! I loved it and would definitely visit again.
