“Well. It is what it is.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 March 2008

More than likely, you have a good reason to stay here. Probably a conference. Or some sort of church-sponsored event.

I stayed here for a conference at which I was presenting. This wouldn't be my first choice if I was paying for myself, but as it was free, I'm not going to turn it down.

I still don't know what an Antiochian Village is exactly, but it's a church camp kind of place. That said, the rooms are very much like a hotel. An old hotel where TV's are banned so that you "socialize", but a hotel nonetheless.

So. No TV. They _did_ have wireless internet service, though it was really slow and kicked out a lot. Thankfully, I brought a DVD to watch on my laptop. It's close enough to Ligonier, which is a cute town, but there's really not too awful much to do in the area.

Since I got my room comp'ed, I don't know how much the rooms are, but if the rate quoted here on is right ($39), then that's a fair price if you really need a place to stay in the area and can entertain yourself pretty good.

  • Liked — it was free. kept wind and snow outside.
  • Disliked — bad internet access. no tv.
  • Stayed March 2008, travelled on business
