Grotto of the Redemption Tuesday, May 23, 2023 West Bend, IA

Join us as we make our way to Edgewood, IA.

Our first stop will be for yummy cinnamon rolls and a warm cup of coffee from a very popular local bakery called Pie-Eyed & Flakey.

We are joining our friends from Parkersburg IA on an adventure to the Grotto of the Redemption.

Tour of Kendrick Forest Products, Iowa’s largest sawmill and the first of their family businesses, established in 1983. We will also learn about Forever Cabinets by Kendrick, Kendrick Home and Shimlee and The Markket. This is Kendricks 6,700 sq ft showroom where they showcase their line of Forever Cabinets, as well as home décor, lighting, rugs, furnishings, kitchenware, clothing and so much more.

The Grotto is frequently considered the “Eighth Wonder of the World” and The Iowan magazine has described the Grotto as a “miracle in stone”. The location was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2001. A composite of nine separate grottos, each portrait displays a scene in the life of Christ.

Edgewood Locker retail store is a fun stop to see their wide array of products, many are now available in our local convenience and grocery stores.

We will be treated to a guided tour, time for wandering on your own and a visit to the gift shop.

Are you hungry yet? The Bread Basket in Manchester, IA is our next stop. We will be served a lovely lunch with their legendary “White Chocolate Banana Cream Pie” as a dessert option. This alone is worth the trip.

A wonderful lunch is included before our visit to the Grotto. We are sure to have tons of fun on the motor coach and wonderful memories to bring home with us.

After lunch enjoy a stop to see and perhaps purchase some of the beautiful Amish hanging flower baskets that are in the area.
