GodQuest will be housed in the historic Galilee Lodge. The history of Galilee is part of its unique charm. The building we now call Galilee was the former summer home of Theodore and Gertrude Case. Built in 1896 and uniquely designed to fit the contour of the shoreline, it quickly became the centerpiece of the Case estate. This is the building most guests equate with Casowasco because of its history, location (on the lake), and beauty.

The rail road that runs along the property dropped off many famous guests during those years - including an alleged visit by Mr. Walt Disney. After the purchase of the property in 1946, Galilee began to undergo what would be several changes, all with the intent of making the building into a retreat facility. In

There are several wooded trails on the property. You will wait patiently for each sunrise and mellow out with each sunset as you sit on the shoreline each day.

Come and calm your spirit; refresh yourself near the shoreline.
