Work with REC Retreats and turn your creative ideas for a retreat into reality. The word, retreat, is defined as the act of "stepping back" or "withdrawing".  Our Lummi Island location is ideal for creating a sense of "escaping" from routine; it is this very withdrawal that allows participants to decompress and leaves them open to new ideas and learning. REC Retreats has a pastoral setting; situated on eight tranquil acres, it has a view of Mt. Baker, the Canadian Cascades, and Hales Passage (with sneak peeks of the ferry gliding by.) The house has windows on all sides, bringing the inspirational outdoor world of the island indoors. The Pacific Northwest is stunning, and while there are other beautiful places in which to gather, what sets REC Retreats apart is how we treat you. And how we treat your guests.

Inspired by the precious feeling of community on the island, Kjerstin, REC Retreats founder and owner, fosters that [sometimes rare] experience of unconditional belonging with every person at every event. It is easy to provide a beautiful facility in a beautiful location, but it takes something special to provide the beautiful sense of unconditional acceptance. 

Accomplish more, worry less. Collaborate with Kjerstin, REC Retreats Specialist, and realize your dreams for a retreat of your own making. Are you a seasoned retreat leader? Experience the thoughtful support that Kjerstin provides and relax & enjoy your retreat as much as your participants. Are you a novice and don't know where to start? Then Kjerstin will guide you through the process, from planning to execution. You don't have to do it alone!
