Lake Louise is nestled in the rolling hills among a spring fed lake in the heart of Northern Michigan.

Our facilities are open year-round to enrich YOUR four seasons of camping adventures. Our rustic elegance and gorgeous views come together to form a majestic and peaceful environment for group events and retreats.

Whether you’re looking for a daring adventure, a bonding experience, or a quiet weekend in the woods along the shores of Lake Louise (or any combination of the three), we’ve got you covered!

Lake Louise Retreat Center is the perfect venue for your next event. Whether you’re organizing a retreat, a conference, a camping trip, a trip for youth groups, a family reunion, or even a gala, we have the perfect space for your needs.

Lake Louise Retreat Center gives your group the opportunity to grow together in a natural setting with the help of our year-round professional staff.  Our center can accommodate groups ranging in size from 30 – 170 guests, and events can run anywhere from 2 hours to full weekends or any number of days within a week.

Our Camp chefs provide meal service year-round, prepared with healthy living in mind, to make sure you have the energy to tackle your goals.

Lake Louise Chapels and Amphitheater

Tennant Chapel seats approximately 160 people and has a sound system and piano. Available Spring, Summer, Fall.

Horner Center is a large hall anchored at either end by a stage and wood burning fireplace. The center hall is flanked by two side rooms – one with a small kitchen and the other a great place for crafts. Available Spring, Summer, Fall.

Dining Hall seats approximately 150 people. A sound system with TV are integrated features and a piano is also available. For groups that would like to use this room for more than dining, it is available for rent provided your group is the only group on-site.

We strive to keep our accommodation rates low to ensure as many people as possible may visit and be blessed through their time at Lake Louise. Therefore, we trust you understand the additional time required by our staff to ensure these buildings are prepared for your group’s use.

Buildings available on a first-come reservation basis when multiple groups are staying. If both group leaders are agreeable, buildings may be shared.

These rates apply to groups who are staying at Lake Louise. If you have an outside group that would like to rent our facilities for the day, please contact us by phone or email.

Lake Louise Chapels and Amphitheater

Every group needs space to give presentations, play games, grow closer, or just sit and relax. We offer breakout spaces for both overnight and day groups to give your group the room it needs to achieve your goals. We also provide equipment like chairs, tables, and projectors as needed.
