Lutheridge, one of finest North Carolina Conference Centers, aims to give people a peaceful yet productive meeting place, one that's designed not just for youth and family retreats but for conferences filled with professionals who feel that coming together in a place rich with ministry that fosters a relationship with God is the best choice for their business and the best environment for their meetings.
Several housing options are available for meetings and retreats at the Lutheridge Conference & Retreat Center, with adults having the choice between 5 different options. Kohnjoy Inn sleeps up to 32 adults in 16 rooms, each with a private bathroom, and contains two meeting rooms, one suitable for a casual gathering of 10 to 15 people, and a larger conference room on the first floor that can hold up to 35.
Thornburg Hall contains both private rooms and suites with shared bathrooms than can hold up 60 adults, and a meeting room on both floors that can seat up to 40 at one time.
Bacot is a cozy option with 8 bedrooms, a full kitchen, two small gathering areas, 4 bathrooms and a stone fireplace for those who prefer the feel of a bed and breakfast or a share home. Lakeside Village is made up of 6 cottages next to the lake, each with a deck, two bedrooms, a gathering room, and even a kitchenette. Small groups can enjoy the Carl and H&H cottages that contain 3 bedrooms, a kitchen, a fireplace and a dining area.
A total of 11 different meeting rooms, some in the housing areas, are available at Lutheridge for business needs and retreat gatherings.
