The Retreat Center offers a beautiful, 8.5-acre campus setting among mature fir and cedar trees, just 3 blocks from Lake Whatcom and our private beach. Great dining, private cabins and individual lodge rooms make our guests comfortable. Available to groups of 25 to 220.



Whether you have a group of 25 or 220, the Retreat Center will accommodate you comfortably. We offer a range of housing options, including private cabins and individual lodge rooms, all with attractive views of the surrounding fir and cedar trees. Our various accommodations are designed to suit every budget. All lodging is centrally located – a short walk through the trees takes you wherever you need to be. This makes it an ideal spot to hold your next retreat.

Great dining is essential to a successful retreat or event, and our executive chef turns meal times into a dining experience. Fully staffed buffet or family-style gourmet meals are served in a casual, friendly atmosphere. Want an extra coffee break, snack time or banquet? Just let us know in advance, and we will arrange everything. Our dining staff is here to serve you.

Need to unwind? Wander down to our beach area on Lake Whatcom. Waterfront activities during the summer months include swimming, water skiing, paddle boats, and sea kayaks. If you prefer to be on land, start up a game of volleyball, baseball, soccer or basketball. Our staff is committed to providing your group with exceptional comfort and service!
