Most have a cozy front porch, perfect for relaxing, reading, drinking iced tea, playing card games and especially for welcoming conversation.

Recognized for their famous Hibachi Pizza, Sloopy’s earned the ‘Best Pizza Flavor.” After the pizza was created in 2012 for a Columbus-based contest, which it went on to win, as well as several other contests, the owners decided to add the unique creation to their menu.
In addition, Lago was named ‘Best Modern Fusion.’ The new restaurant, which opened earlier this summer, has a loaded menu of modern cuisine, including California Chicken Sliders that have become a Lakesider favorite!
Congratulations to Sloopy’s and Lago! For a full list of winners, check out the September/October 2019 issue currently on stands.

“Lakeside is significant to the nation as the largest and most intact Camp Meeting/Chautauqua ground remaining in the U.S., which is still functioning according to its original organizational plan. It is also one of the longest continuously operated such resorts in the country, having formally opened in 1873. Lakeside is a rare survivor of two of America’s foremost 19th century cultural movements, which were established at Lakeside by nationally prominent religious/cultural leaders. Additionally, the range of architecture, from simple frame cottages to the massive 3,000-seat auditorium, is an excellent representation of both indigenous and unique ‘camp meeting’ forms.” Read More

When you think of an old-fashioned summer, what comes to mind? For me, it conjures up images of reading on the porch of a lake house, swimming in the lake, riding your bike to grab an ice cream cone, or fishing off the dock. But in today’s busy, always connected world, does that kind of summer still exist?
In fact, my husband and I choreographed part of the sequence from “Time of Your Life” to dance together at our wedding. And I’m the girl who googles things like “does the resort from Dirty Dancing actually exist?” I’ll save you the time and inform you that yes, it does exist, and it’s actually called Mountain Lake Lodge – but it’ll always be “Kellerman’s” to me.
