An Overnight in Charming Lakeside Chautauqua, OH
Back in 1873, a group of Methodist preachers came to this idyllic locale,
set up some benches and pitched their tents,
and “raised the praise” in what later became Lakeside Chautauqua.
Initially purposed to train Sunday School teachers,
it expanded to become a summertime family resort.
The idea of a Chautauqua is a retreat setting that combines worship and Bible study
with intellectual, creative and cultural enrichment, peaceful relaxation,
plus fun, recreational activities, which at Lakeside, includes fishing, boating and swimming.
What a perfect location to do all of the above!
If this quaint little town filled with charming cottages and shops isn’t enough,
there’s the gorgeous setting on beautiful Lake Erie!
Our visit was during the off-season, so most of the shops were closed
and everything was still and quiet. Perfect for a restful retreat.
Enjoy the photos I took of a memorable stay!
First things first: lunch.
We stopped for quiche and salad at Ooh La La…
