The Lodge

Due to Covid and other business considerations, we regret The Lodge is CLOSED to events until further notice. 

This distinctive building, designed in the style of an 1800’s Scottish hunting lodge, features an 800 sq. ft. “great room” with a large furnished kitchen. It was built in 1932, along with a number of beach cottages, as a dining hall, serving three meals a day for the resort’s guests until the 1970’s. It has also functioned as home to more than three generations of the Gibson and Seagrave family. Remaining substantially unchanged today, it maintains its period charm with its generous fireplace, vaulted beamed ceiling, deep bay windows, and gracious front porch overlooking our beautiful sand and gravel beach just steps away. These features, along with a dozen beachfront rental cottages, make it an ideal venue for conferences, seminars, and retreats of up to 50 adults.

At North Beach Inn, our unpretentious style and over 100 acres of quiet natural surroundings blend well with adult and professional groups seeking a more intimate experience, including: personal growth, corporate retreats, creative sparking, and spiritual reflection.

Weddings: If you love low-key, simplicity, and gorgeous scenery, we might be a great venue for your wedding ceremony – indoors or, weather permitting, outdoors on our pristine private beach.

The Lodge is part of our historic Orcas Island beach resort that has been hosting generations of guests year-round in cottages for over 85 years, offering an ethos that is tranquil, restful, and private.  To ensure that events at The Lodge blend well with this unique guest experience, availability and restrictions depend on your group size and event:

  1. Small groups of up to 24 people.  September – mid-June. See more information/make a booking or rate request…
  2. Large groups, 25-50 max. people.  September – mid-June.  See more information/make a booking or rate request…
  3. Summer Wedding Ceremonies.  Available from mid-June through August and limited to specific dates and times.  See more information/make a booking or rate request…

Note: Gatherings involving partying and loud music can’t be accommodated in consideration of our cottage guests enjoying the peace and quiet – although we can suggest other great local venues for those kinds of celebrations!
