This is the greatest gem in Nebraska. The surrounding grounds add to the outdoor experience, yet the comforts of the lodge give groups a wide variety of activities. For our group this is a complete experience. The staff makes our group feel at home and is always accommodating. Thank you for everything you folks do. We love it here!

This is my second year to experience this wonderful art gathering at the perfect venue. The accommodations, cuisine, and art room are all perfect. You all are friendly, helpful and professional. Thank you and see you next year!

When looking for someone to help with food, setting tables, and all the small details at the reception, I knew exactly who I needed to reach out to. Maile and Micheala at TLC were the perfect people to make sure everything ran smoothly and just how I wanted it. I felt like they got my vision and were able to carry it out exactly how I had it in my mind. I appreciated all their advice and would recommend them to anyone!



Baseball results aside, I wanted to let you know what a great time the team had at the Leadership Center. Your facility provided the perfect getaway from the fields.

Aurora should be very proud to have this facility available for these type of special occasions or other events.

The Leadership Center was a terrific place to create. The views out the windows were very calming yet inspirational. The walk about the grounds in the snow were rewarding (the truck was a big reward). Also the coyote droppings with the bones and plastic nail were very interesting. My time in the classroom was great. I finished 14 pieces in my 5 days and long nights, the only problem was too much food!

The accommodations and meals were wonderful. Even though we may not see all of your team, we are grateful and recognize everyone's efforts.

Your posts are always so upbeat that I love to read and make a great start to my day. Your staff and leadership have done an amazing job. Thank you for taking great care of Trey and the other FFA state officers!

For our wedding and reception I wanted things to be perfect to give my bride the absolute best day ever. Things went about as perfectly as they could have and it absolutely wouldn’t have been possible without the help of TLC. They were there every step of the way offering support, staff, or any other assistance we may have needed. Maile and Micheala’s expert eye for what looks good was of great assistance when we were piecing together our reception. While my then fiance's family was preparing the main dish, the kitchen at TLC expertly and deliciously made green beans, and cheesy potato casserole. Micheala helped Emily with various things ranging from specific advice as someone who has personally put together many weddings to helping with a simple “what looks good” question. Our day would not have been possible had it not been for the TLC staff. I will forever be grateful for their help and support creating our big day. They are amazing, hardworking, and dedicated people whose expertise, in my opinion, is unmatched.



The atmosphere of the Leadership center makes for a memorable evening.

You should book your event at the Leadership Center! Their staff is great and so accommodating, everyone was so kind and caring, they make you feel at home.

Loved it all! The meals were extra good this year. The staff is always so very nice and really know how to make you feel welcome. This stay here is one of the top highlights of my year. I have been other places that are just as nice, but it is the staff who make this place so special.

The Leadership Center Staff, especially Micheala, helped provide the perfect place for my daughter's wedding. It was beautiful, and everyone was welcoming and encouraging.



The staff could not have been more accommodating to our entire team and all around small town welcome.

I would recommend this facility to anyone planning an event. The staff made it so easy to plan our annual Christmas Party, and the food was excellent! I have nothing but good things to say about our time at The Leadership Center.

I have attended a few of our Indian Hills Community Church Men's Retreats and appreciate the version some men had for this place and followed through with it. The staff is always friendly and ready to assist, the rooms and halls are always clean and you can't beat the food. I came from a large family and when we have another reunion I would definitely put my recommendation for The Leadership Center.

Thank you TLC Staff for your hospitality!!! You have a wonderful facility. I especially enjoyed the pool and painting the International harvester L-150. This facility is perfect for plain air painting. We've enjoyed using the space for the Grand Island Sketch Club, Artist's Runaway.

We are more than happy with our experience and everything The Leadership Center did to make our day perfect.

We want our ladies to have time ‘away’ from the hustle and bustle of life and this provides it.

A beautiful Nebraska setting I enjoy returning to year after year.
