Lakeside, Rising Sun, Hemlock & Ouch House

Small Group Rentals

Lakeside & Rising Sun 

We are planning to rent out Rising Sun and Lakeside cabins to small groups (10 or less) beginning May 15. Groups will need to practice social distancing while at CBD. 

Located by the lake, Lakeside and Rising Sun are CBD's new "Beach Houses in the Woods". Both cabins have 3 bedrooms, a living/dining room, kitchen, 2 bathrooms, a loft, central AC and heat, and a TV/DVD. They are handicapped accessible. The living/dining room and the balcony meeting area are outfitted with couches and chairs, a great space for meetings, Bible studies, or just visiting. The large size of the combined living/dining area, also makes it suitable for quilting and scrapbooking groups. The kitchen has a refrigerator, microwave, oven, dishwasher, coffeemaker, dishes and pots and pans, making it ideal for family vacations and church groups. 

There are 6 sets of bunk beds in each cabin, with 3 of the bottom beds being doubles. This allows for a maximum of 15 guests in each cabin. Smaller groups of 6-15 can rent either cabin. Larger groups of up to 25 can rent both cabins together. Groups smaller than 6 can rent the cabins, however minimums still apply. Lakeside and Rising Sun require a 2 night stay. The 2 night minimum may be waived for larger groups or special circumstances. Lodging fee is $28/person/night. Discounted rate for member churches. 

For all cabins groups linens are not provided; smoking, alcohol and pets are not allowed. Canoeing (April - Oct.) and swimming (May - Sept.) are available. There is a lifeguard fee of $10/hour. The fee does not apply to family groups, when parents supervise, or all adult groups. 


Hemlock is an older, cozy winterized cabin that can accommodate up to 16 people. Each of its 4 bedrooms has a double bed, so that couples and families can be more comfortable. There are 2 restrooms w/showers, and a central meeting room with kitchenette and fireplace. This building is located about 100 yds. from the Main Lodge, so larger groups can conveniently rent both buildings. 

Groups renting Hemlock by itself or with the Ouch House pay Hemlock rates and prepare their own meals. Groups renting Hemlock with the Main Lodge pay Main Lodge rates and take their meals in the Main Lodge. Hemlock is used as summer staff housing during June, July and early August and is unavailable. Lodging is $20/person/night. Discounted rate for member churches.  

Ouch House

Between the Main Lodge and Hemlock is the Ouch House, which serves as the nurses cabin in the summer. It can be rented by groups using either the Lodge or Hemlock. It does not have a kitchen, so it cannot be rented by itself. Groups renting the Ouch House with Hemlock pay Hemlock rates. Groups renting the Ouch House with the Lodge pay Lodge rates. The building has 3 bedrooms with a total of six beds, and a bathroom. One bedroom has a double bed. The Ouch House is a very practical space for guests that need private space (guest speakers, leaders, families with babies.).
