The main entrance to the Seabeck Conference Center. You can borrow a boat to paddle in the lagoon!
 
The conference center has several historic houses on its grounds, many next to the lagoon.
 
Our accommodations and meeting rooms for 2008 and 2009 were at historic Reeser House (above). We had lovely views across the lagoon towards the mountains, too! Reeser has a large meeting room for 30 people, plus another meeting room with a kitchen, and we were very comfortable there.
 
This is the main lodge at the Seabeck Conference Center. The dining hall where we have our meals is just off the right side of the picture.

Visit the antique shop, the general store, and a few other local business at the Seabeck marina, across the lagoon from the conference center.
 
There's lots to do at the conference center, such as playing volleyball, ping pong, hiking to the historic cemetery, walking to the Cathedral in the Woods, borrowing a free boat to paddle on the lagoon, and much more.
 
    
On the Sunday of our past retreats, we visited historic Emel House, where Haiku Northwest member Alice Frampton grew up, at Scenic Beach State Park.

An aerial view of Seabeck. The Seabeck Conference Center is to the left, out of the picture. The road on the left separates the lagoon from Seabeck Bay. In the center is the Seabeck Marina.
 
This is Madrona House, which we’ve used in the past for our overflow accommodations when we had enough retreat attendees to fill our primary accommodations.
 
In 2009 we met in this building, called The Lounge. This cozy carpeted A-frame building has a wood stove and accommodated up to 40 enthusiastic haiku poets.
 
We now meet here, at the Colman building. We'll have complete use of the building, which can accommodate up to 80 people upstairs, and 60 people downstairs. The building also has its own lounge, kitchen, and bathrooms, so we'll be very comfortable here. We hope you'll be able to see it for yourself—please do join us!
 
We look forward to having you at the Seabeck Haiku Getaway. Click here for the 2013 registration form.
