The Multi-Purpose Facility
Lael’s multi-purpose event facility provides all the comforts for overnight stays. There are full kitchen facilities and dining tables providing seating for up to 60 people. There are two restrooms with hot showers. A large multi-purpose room upstairs may be used for gatherings, games, or presentations. This upstairs room, along with the third-floor loft, provides segregated sleeping areas. Sleeping bags and pads or cots are the responsibility of the guests, although 12 wall mounted cots with pads are provided.
Lael’s Chapel sits at the crest of a hill providing a 360 degree view of the magnificent rolling Palouse landscape and Clearwater Mountains. The Chapel provides comfortable seating for up to 60 people and is wheelchair accessible. There is power for your group’s audio or audio-visual equipment. The large deck and expansive front windows bring the glories of God’s ever-changing creation into view for all to enjoy.
Nature Trail and Grounds
An outdoor amphitheater adds another option for presentations or fresh-air programs, and picnic tables and a fire pit add to the outdoor experience at Lael. A nature trail begins near the amphitheater and winds through the meadows and forested areas of the property. Benches along the trail offer inviting places to sit and reflect among the trees or alongside the pond. A walk around the trail loop takes about 20-30 minutes.
The newest amenity at Lael is a shady gazebo overlooking the pond along the pond loop of the nature trail. The gazebo is an excellent location to admire the beauty of the area as well as to stop and watch for wildlife such as moose, deer, birds, and turtles and frogs in the pond.
