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 lodge to our private cabins, 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!

Norman’s Nest

Book our private cabin, Norman’s Nest, for a cozy home away from home that is all yours. This two-bedroom, one-bathroom cabin has a queen bed and two twin beds, with a queen sleeper sofa in the living room for additional accommodations. 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.

The Lodge

Stay in our main lodge and be in the center of it all. The Lodge is home to the pool, game room and lobby, providing easy access to some of our best activities and a community feel as you experience time together with family or a large group.

Choose from one of our deluxe rooms – either a room with two double
beds or a room with two queens. The queen feature a fridge, chairs, dresser, and a modest table, and all rooms come fully equipped with an
iron, coffee maker and phone.

Rustic Lodges

Enjoy one of our freshly renovated rustic lodges, each named after
Adirondack high peaks. View the shimmering lake from your deck as you recline on an Adirondack chair. Choose between an upper room with a king size bed or one of the two lower rooms with two queens and optional use of adjoining doors, all furnished with two chairs, a dresser, and a modest table. Savor the feel of a cabin with the advantages of contemporary appliances – fridge, coffee makers, iron and board, and cool air conditioning.

William’s Motel

Be our guest at William’s Motel, an intimate setting, where all rooms are
furnished with iron and board, radio clock, phone, and two beds – a double and a single. Take in the fresh pine scent on the second and third floor balconies or the porches outside the main and lower back floors.

Journey's End

Offering a variety of bed sizes, these antique economy rooms are a homey place to end the day’s journey. Each room has basic conveniences, such as an iron with board, phone, and desk with chairs. Journey’s End also provides a small lobby for guests.
