Lakeside Chautauqua

Tucked away on the Marblehead Peninsula, just one hour west of Cleveland, this hidden gem along Lake Erie is the perfect destination for a week-long vacation, weekend getaway or day trip.  Within the one-square-mile community of Lakeside, you’ll find hundreds of unique Victorian cottages, a concert auditorium, arts center, wellness center, historic waterfront hotel, movie theater, pool, splash park, playgrounds, shuffleboard, tennis, pickleball, sailing, shopping, dining, miniature golf and much more.

At the heart of the Lakeside experience, and what makes it truly different from a typical vacation spot, is the summer programming — a perfect balance to nurture mind, body and spirit.  Choose from any combination of cultural arts, educational, recreational and spiritual programs to create a vacation with a purpose.

Where else can your family play shuffleboard, visit an art show, listen to a live concert, walk Ohio’s Most Beautiful Mile, take in a view of the Lake Erie Islands, experience an engaging lecture, listen to a preacher and take a tennis lesson all in the same day?

Lakeside offers a variety of unique and charming accommodations — from the historic Hotel Lakeside and contemporary Fountain Inn to weekly cottage rentals, campground, and bed & breakfasts.
