We believe in slowing down and celebrating the important moments and markers of life. The pace of our day to day living can be hectic, but special occasions are a gift and opportunity to connect with the people we care about in deep and meaningful ways. Whether you’re planning a reunion of friends or family, celebrating a bar or bat mitzvah, or marking a special anniversary or birthday, IslandWood is the perfect backdrop for a beautiful, thoughtful celebration. With 250 acres of stunning natural surroundings, lodging for guests, exceptional service, and artfully-crafted Pacific Northwest cuisine, we’ll help you create a unique and memorable experience. And you can feel good knowing that by hosting your special occasion at IslandWood, you’re supporting exceptional environmental education.
Every bite matters. This simple yet highly intentional philosophy guides Chef Jim White’s approach to dining at IslandWood. 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.

Having your celebration at IslandWood means keeping all your guests together, in one place, for your event. Our four sleeping lodges combine the comfort of modern accommodations with the natural rustic beauty of the Northwest. The lodges have a total of 53 guest rooms, 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!
Hiking, trail running, garden tours, canopy tower climbing, scavenger hunts, art activities, and yoga are all available right on our property. And kayaking, sailing, fishing, paddle boarding, beach wandering, mountain biking, and miles and miles of more hiking are available within minutes of our property.
Inclusion and equity are pillars of our organization and we are committed to providing a safe and welcoming space where everyone is honored, valued, and respected. We do not discriminate based on race, color, religion, national origin, ancestry, citizenship, disability, marital, family, pregnancy status, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, or veteran status.
By choosing to have your special occasion at IslandWood, you’re not only selecting an amazing venue, you’re changing the world for good! The events we host help generate the critical resources necessary to ensure that all students and schools, regardless of their capacity to pay, can participate in our environmental education programs. By having your event here, you’re creating a positive impact that will be felt far beyond your celebration.
