Assumption Abbey Monastery

See Photo Location

Amidst the rugged and densely wooded rolling hills of the Ozarks is a treasure that is second to none for its tranquil and serene peacefulness. The Monastery offers a private retreat center for individuals seeking greater spiritual enlightenment.

While there, visit their bakery where the famous Assumption Abbey fruitcakes are made by the resident monks. These fruitcakes are shipped all over the world and sold in stores such as Saks Fifth Avenue and Macy’s. They are much sought after, especially during the holidays.

But, most of all, each visitor will enjoy the beautiful and peaceful surroundings of the Abbey, a place to relax and refresh the body and mind.
