This is not just about religion it's about history also. Yes it is religious but there is history involved. It houses over 1000 Holy Relics and is a spiritual place. Quiet and peaceful.

A very interesting history. It's worth a stop if you are in the area, or even making a Pilgrimage to if you are in mid-west Ohio. Beautiful building, and grounds are well kept

The shrine and the retreat center are blessings to the area. If you need someplace to go to unwind, pray & reflect, these 2 places are wonderful. So much to see and do. God is truly present here.

This is a great place to walk around and reset. It has plenty of holy relics, religious items for any faith. It also has a retreat house for any size retreats or a single night to stay if you are passing through.

I don't believe there are any B&B's close. I would look up the Crescent a new small hotel in Minster , OH. It is locally owned and about 10minutes away.
