I visited Islandwood for a week-long conference. Hospitality was superb. The food was top-notch, delicious, and abundant. Coffee and tea availability was ongoing and of the highest quality. The trail system on the property was wonderful, extensive, and made for great bird and wildlife-spotting opportunities. Sleeping lodges and other facilities made me wish I could stay onsite for much longer than the limited time of the conference I was attending. I highly recommend Islandwood as an amazing site for any conference, retreat, business meeting and more!

Amazing. From the NatureScaping through Pacific NW architecture, community oriented principles, educational opportunities, summer camps for kids, and premier event space...Island Wood is like an eagle amongst gulls. This is a treasure you can put in your heart to remind you that we are capable of working with our environment in beautiful and profound ways. Here's to Island Wood, may we all be so bold.
