I am not a religious person by any means and you don't need to be to feel how special this place is. The views are spectacular and you feel very much at piece here.

I love this chapel. Whenever we come to DuPont, I have to see the sun rise at Pretty Place. I have a friend who has cancer, I texted him this is the closest physically an individual can be to Jesus without meeting him face to face. If you ever get a chance to visit this chapel, I highly recommend it!

This is a must if you are in the area, the view and atmosphere are fantastic. It is a little hard to find, some maps cannot pick it up. The drive up the mountain is worth the view. God's majesty at its finest.

We did not know what to expect. In reality the place is more impressive & serene then any picture. Beautiful Chapel in the sky. Important: Always call the place ahead of time! Make sure it is open to the Public, sometimes it is closed for private events. You can't get Sunset here but you can get sunrise (faces east) if... More

We have been here several times and are always taken with how incredibly gorgeous the view is. It's a bit of a winding long drive but with Cesar Head so close it is worth it as you can easily knock out both gorgeous stops in one trip!

What an amazing view! As soon as was approaching the vast view I got goose bumps. I can only imagine going to a service there. The pastor would not have to work hard at all for one to see God's grace. My favorite site so far. Breath taking and beautiful.

Although this place is alittle difficult to find, it is well worth it. The views are breathtaking and words can't describe this place. Take the time to find it, you won't regret it!

This is one of the most scenic chapels I have ever visited anywhere in the world. It is very simple in design, but, the fact that it overlooks the vista of the NC mountains makes it ideal for reflection on God's handiwork that is nature.

Wanted to see this for the last few years! I am so glad we made the trip, a little off the beaten path but well worth it! Such a peaceful place!
