One would think by now that someone who posts here would have visited it.
"Deep in the heart of Texas..."
I was there for a weekend a few years ago. The university group at my church has gone for a retreat pretty much every year. There were two guest houses, for males and females. Basically small rooms shared by two people with a bathroom, stacked two or three stories high. When I was there, our group prayed in a chapel that was basically a classroom with a Sanctuary. No high ceilings, or architecture to speak of. But it was very nice, with no pews, and the feeling of a Church. The monks prayed separately in a similar room. Since then they've built a nice big chapel on it's own. The chapel we were in was in the same building as the monks' cells, and some dining and meeting rooms. I think that now that building is strictly for monks. A monk would wake us up at 4 for Midnight Praise. Then there would be work, a Liturgy, then breakfast, then work, silent time, dinner, evening prayers, etc., pretty standard. I think Anba Youssef spends at least a day a week there.
It is on a lake, but I did not get a chance to walk down to it.
There is lots on youtube:

The grounds, and a procession from a small chapel to the large one (warning, processions are not a strong point of the Copts): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MPMM1LC7Y3A
