"The Conference Center offers great facilities and excellent food, but the service we receive from the staff keeps us coming back."

Michael Bucheit, Western Training Coordinator, Pennsylvania State Parks

"In my years of working with campuses hosting our youth conference of 2,500 attendees, I have never worked with a finer staff. Their attention to detail, professional delivery of service and standard of excellence is unmatched."

Chery Otermat, Director of Operations, CE National

"Overnight accommodations at the Conference Center are very inviting and meet our every need. Our conference is a week long and the comfortable, cheerful rooms make it a short one. Rooms are well appointed and maintained equally as well."

Walter Blicharz, Chairman, Bible Students General Convention Committee
