Lakeside Chautauqua

For 140 years, Lakeside Chautauqua has welcomed families to the Lake Erie shore to take part in a summer Chautauqua experience dedicated to nurturing mind, body and spirit. The experience is a step back in time to a place where values, traditions and family remain the focus.

There is no place quite like Lakeside Chautauqua.  It is an historic community that offers an abundance of spiritual opportunities, educational lectures, cultural arts performances and recreational activities during its 10-week summer programming season. Quaint boutique shopping, unique restaurants and a variety of accommodations complete the experience.

It is our mission to enrich the quality of life for all people, to foster traditional Christian values and to nurture relationships through opportunities for renewal and growth – spiritually,

Located between Cleveland and Toledo, Lakeside provides rest and renewal, in addition to hundreds of enlightening and entertaining experiences during the summer. Groups are welcome year-round. For more information on vacationing or living the Lakeside Chautauqua experience, contact (419) 798-4461 or visit
