Are you looking to bring the team together in an inspiring setting? Does your team need a fresh perspective for strategic planning? If you want to step out of the typical corporate environment and into a comfortable, casual space in a magnificent location, then REC Retreats is for you.
Plan a one-day (or multiple-day) company offsite at REC Retreats and receive customized support so your team can focus on the agenda. Escape to Lummi Island and leave routine behind: encourage team members to decompress, allowing them to unleash creativity, collaborate more effectively and generate innovative ideas.
Your group will be the only one at REC Retreats, allowing you complete privacy and confidentiality. Take advantage of the multiple breakout spaces furnished with comfortable chairs and coffee tables. Move outside - the large outdoor deck has a harvest table with seating for ten, and Adirondack chairs for fourteen. Imagine working in the fresh air with a view of Mt. Baker and the Salish Sea – goodbye windowless conference room!

REC Retreats understands that meals are an important part of the experience and therefore, only "the best will do". Allow us to help arrange the food and beverage service - the exceptional food is locally prepared with high-quality, seasonal ingredients. Menus are varied and interesting. Most special diet requests can be accommodated, but must be arranged ahead of time (please contact REC Retreats with the specifics.) Consider dining at the historic Beach Store Café as part of your Island Experience.
If you prefer to bring your own provisions, you are welcome to use the kitchen facilities. Your group will be responsible for set up and serving. There will be an additional cleaning fee and a per person place setting rental.
