Lakeside, a Place to Celebrate Life’s Milestones Together

Lakeside Chautauqua is a centerpiece and long-standing tradition for thousands of families each summer.

It is not only a place to relax, renew, reconnect and grow together, but a gathering place for milestone celebrations – baptisms along the shoreline, first birthdays at the Splash Park, first kisses on the dock, engagements at the gazebo, weddings on the Hotel Lakeside lawn, anniversary parties in the Hotel Lakeside Dining Room and celebration of life services at the memorial garden.

Lakesider Elizabeth (Adams) Peck had dreamed of having her wedding at Lakeside since she was a little girl.

“Standing in front of the gazebo when I was 9 years old, I told my mom, ‘this is where I am going to get married,’” she said.

Lakeside already held a special place in her heart, and adding memories of her wedding to fiancé Kyle Peck made Lakeside a place that will forever be dear to the couple and their family as it continues to grow.

“The day was everything I had ever hoped it would be, and my husband and I will continue to enjoy summers at Lakeside, knowing that this is where it all began,” she said.

Thanks to your generosity year in and year out, families, like Elizabeth’s, will continue to gather at Lakeside for more life-changing moments.

Please consider giving a gift to the Lakeside Fund before Tuesday, March 31 to continue to enrich the lives of Lakesiders. Donate online today, make a donation by phone at (419) 798-5396 or email for more information.
