About Lied Lodge & Conference Center

The Adirondack styling of timbers and stone sets the perfect stage for meetings of any kind, yet Lied Lodge & Conference Center is the only educational complex of its kind in the nation.

With environmental programs that focus on trees, conservation, and environmental stewardship, Lied Lodge & Conference Center was designed to serve as a resource for the Arbor Day Foundation members, other conservation-related organizations, teachers, forestry professionals, and any other organization or company wishing to use a centrally located, high quality, and reasonably priced conference center.

A member of the International Association of Conference Centers, Lied Lodge & Conference center is a full service facility and offers 144 well-appointed guestrooms featuring work-study areas and data-ports, a fine dining restaurant, a cocktail lounge, an indoor swimming pool, jacuzzi, sauna, and fitness center. Walking trails, jogging, and nearby golf are available for relaxation. The conference center features state of the art audio-visual equipment and service with teleconferencing capabilities, computer hookups, meeting rooms with individual HVAC controls, high fidelity audio systems, and in-house mechanical and electrical support.
