Every day at IslandWood people of all ages engage in thoughtfully-designed experiences to discover new things about themselves and their relationship to the world. We believe nature enhances meetings and retreats by fostering the time and space for deeper thought, reflection, and ultimately, human connection. Groups that host their events at IslandWood find that nature is not just a backdrop, but an integral part of their experience.
“AMAZING VALUE FOR A BEAUTIFUL SPACE AND EXCELLENT STAFF! ”

To nourish the mind, we believe you need to nourish the body. We create menus that showcase local, organic, and sustainably sourced ingredients, including some items fresh from our garden. Our kitchen specializes in meeting a wide range of dietary needs and preferences with inspiration and creativity.
“OUT OF THIS WORLD. VEGAN AND GLUTEN-FREE OPTIONS AVAILABLE FOR THOSE THAT NEEDED IT. THE MEALS WERE VARIED AND AMAZING AND PLENTIFUL.”

MEETING SPACES & ACCOMMODATIONS
Surrounded by views of the meadows and forest outside, our meeting spaces are flexible, light-filled and feature all the essential amenities for a successful off-site meeting or conference.
Should your group require an overnight stay, IslandWood has four sleeping lodges that combine the comfort of modern accommodations with the natural rustic beauty of the Northwest. The lodges have a total of 53 guestrooms, each with a private bathroom, and can sleep up to 200 guests. Every lodge has a spacious great room with a fireplace and seating for gathering,
game-playing, reading, and relaxing. All beds on our property are made up with organic cotton bedding for a dreamy nights sleep!
