What Our Guests Say

Mitch Aldridge

I’ve done multiple events in the area, but the hospitality we were shown at Lakeside is unmatched! It’s a beautiful location with great food and a great staff. The rooms are clean and comfortable. I highly recommend Lakeside for your next event. We will be back!

Jessica Fuqua

Always a great location for events. The view is mesmerizing, especially at dawn and dusk. My favorite part was the food!! I had the top sirloin last time I attended an event, and it SMACKED! You could cut it like butter!!! Just perfect. I'm never disappointed with the catering or hospitality

Joshua Burns

The picturesque scenery of the grounds provides ample reflection of the beauty of God. A perfect place to practice the presence of God and enjoy His creation. Additionally, the staff are gregarious and passionate, living up to the core values of teen challenge.

Bradley Roth

There is a peace that envelops you from the moment you step onto the property. At first you think it's the beauty of the landscape, but the longer you stay the more you realize it's the Presence of God surrounding you. The men and women who steward this land are chosen by God to do so and the excellence in which we experience proved that. Everything from the rooms to the parking lot was spotless! All our needs were met above and beyond all we could ask. The Lord has certainly drawn the lines in pleasant places. Thank you all for such a wonderful experience. God bless!!!
