We're really excited for this year's speaker lineup! Meet the speakers you'll be hearing from this year at The Lodge.

From our centrally located Retreat Center to our Lakeview Lodges, The Lodge provides sweeping views of Schroon Lake and the high peaks.

Our location is the perfect basecamp for your Adirondack adventure, whether you’re looking for hiking, boating, recreation or relaxation and refreshment. A stay at The Lodge is more than just a vacation: it’s a chance to grow spiritually and connect with God and others. During your stay, you’ll have access to incredible biblical teaching and worship through our weekly speakers or special conferences.

The Lodge is the perfect blend of comfortable accommodations and natural beauty.

We offer top-notch amenities, a dining area with home cooked meals served daily and a wide range of activities, from swimming to volleyball to mountain excursions. Browse our accommodations to get started!

A full kitchen features a stove, fridge, microwave, sink, table and chairs and all the pots, pans and utensils you need to make yourself right at home.

Cozy up with Adirondack-style décor, relax on the front porch and watch the lake glisten, meet new friends in the dining room or volleyball court, or retreat for time alone with God. However you spend your vacation, Norman’s Nest is a spacious and relaxed cabin with an ideal opportunity for you to recharge.
