Food & Beverage Options

Dining Room
Buffet dining is a standard feature included in all our retreat packages. We offer self-service buffet lines for breakfast, lunch, and dinner in our Lakeside Dining Room, allowing you to enjoy an all-you-can-eat experience.
Meeting Room Food and Beverage Service
It’s the idea of water cooler talk; people gather around food to fellowship! So let us help you get the most out of your retreat fellowship times. Let us handle all preparation and clean up, so you can focus on ministering to your attendees. You can add some extra comfort to your meeting room with a hot decanter of coffee, teas, or ice water; maybe a tray of fruit, vegetables, cheese and crackers, or fresh baked cookies. Think outside the box! Try our s’mores package during your group bonfire.

Testimonals

Everyone was warm and caring. They took time to explain each step of the process. They kept us informed and made us feel welcome and safe.  Zipline was a great time. Well maintained, and I felt safe. All members of the staff are well trained, and I felt that safety was top priority. Food was great, staff warm and friendly, very welcoming. I look forward to coming back.
