Charleston Lakeside Retreat

Rustic Waterfront Cabins

The cabins are part of an old Pentecostal church camp erected in 1913. They are situated  in a U-shape overlooking peaceful Waterlily Bay on Charleston Lake. All cabins have beautiful views as shown in the photographs below.

"Charleston Heights" was purchased by the Bourbonnais family in December 2016 and renamed "Charleston Lakeside Retreat". The cabins are rustic, comfortable, clean and charming. All are furnished with fully equipped kitchens, 3 piece bathroom, comfortable beds, and beautiful views of the lake from every deck. Guests are invited to enjoy the lake using our stand up paddle boards, canoes, kayaks and peddle boats (included with your stay).
