Lodging

Our four sleeping lodges combine the comfort of modern accommodations with the natural beauty of the Pacific Northwest. In accordance with current state guidelines, we are able to offer overnight lodging in up to 50 of our lodge rooms, as well as in our two-bedroom Guest Cottage. Every lodge has a spacious great room with a fireplace and seating for gathering, game-playing, reading, and relaxing. And all our beds are made up with organic cotton bedding for a dreamy night’s sleep!

We create delicious 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.
