Sharing 1500 feet of lakefront property with the campground, Lakeview is available to rent year-round and is open to the public. Consisting of Cedar Lodge, a Chapel, and five cabins, Lakeview Place Retreat Center provides private accommodations with the perfect setting for your group gathering, church event, family reunion, or wedding. This is where memories, decisions, and commitments are made that will last forever.
Lakeview Place Retreat Center
The Lakeview Chapel
Come gather inside our bright chapel to celebrate and worship. Furnished with pews, a piano, and an overhead projecter, the Lakeview Chapel is a comfortable meeting place for your group.
This picturesque 2-story building was built in the 1940’s as a retreat center for officers of the Army Air Corps. Over the years, it has been remodeled and modernized with great care in order to retain its warmth and charm. The custom cedar logs give the lodge a special ambiance. With 13 dormitory-style bedrooms and one leader's room, Cedar Lodge will sleep 53 people on its upper floor. Utilize Cedar's commercial kitchen and dining area on the lower floor for cooking and gathering, then return upstairs to the Fireside Lounge for relaxing in front of the fireplace.
Lakeside Place Family Campground
Lakeside Place has seven cottages available for rent. Our cottages are clean, tastefully decorated and a great place to relax after a busy day at the resort. They range in size from a two-bedroom/two-bath layout with a full kitchen to a one-bedroom/one-bath with kitchenette, and Park models with bunkbeds and kitchenette. They are available for both group and individual rentals. During Off-Peak season (September 1st-May 31st) linens, bedding and towels will be provided. From June 1st-August 31st, during Peak season linens, bedding and towels will NOT be provided. You will need to bring your own.
Northwoods Hall and Timber Lodge
We have meeting spaces that can accommodate most any group. Choose Northwoods Hall for your smaller group of up to 40 people for a cozy, living room-style gathering or visit Timber Lodge and utilize our fully furnished commercial kitchen for large gatherings of up to 175. Both spaces offer a fireplace, piano, and bathrooms. Tables and chairs are also available.
Timber Lodge was originally built by the Civilian Conservation Corp (CCC) in the 1930's. Great care has been taken to restore the lodge to its original and natural beauty of handcrafted log construction. It makes for beautiful rustic theme weddings and is an ideal central gathering option for your camp-out retreats and large family reunions.
Northwoods Hall is nestled among the cottages with a large deck looking out over Tanwax Lake. With a full kitchen available and just steps away from overnight accommodations in the cottages, Northwoods Hall is a perfect place for meetings, parties and banquets.
Lakeside Place has a variety of campsites throughout the campground. Full hook-ups (electricity/water/sewer) and partial hook-ups (water and electricity) are available to accommodate RV's and trailers of any size. Tent sites, offered with or without electricity and water, bring you close to nature. All sites come with a picnic table and an approved fire ring with attached grate. They are all within walking distance of recreation, as well as amenities that include our friendly camp store, public bathrooms with free showers, affordable laundry facilities and free RV sewer dump station for our guests.
In addition to a public campground resort, Lakeside Place also doubles as an RV Park for extended stay guests. Whether you are looking for an escape from the hectic city life or you are retired and would like to change your lifestyle, Lakeside Place offers a quiet and stress-free setting. Our long term residential sites are located right on Tanwax Lake in a small private section of the park. Seasonal stay sites are located near the public park with a view of the lake. All sites have year-round waterfront access and affordable rates. Call us today for availability.
The Lakeview Cabins
Everyone knows there is something special about spending the night in a cabin. The memories of laughter, stories told, camaraderie, and fighting over who gets the top bunk will remain with you forever. The five Lakeview cabins are furnished with bunk beds and full-sized beds to sleep between seven and 11 people and each cabin has a bathroom inside with a shower. When you rent Cedar Lodge, the Lakeview Cabins are exclusively available for your group members to use for more private accommodations.
