Some types of groups & events the Resort can provide for:
Every year we host a good number of weddings, especially in the Spring and Summer when the trees are all in leaf and the flowers are blooming. The Resort is a great location for a wedding party coming from a distance, as the families and guests can reserve a large block of cabins and meet and get acquainted easily, with room outside for the exuberant youngsters. Catering and reception services are available at The Eatery, and the Brookhaven Great Room fireplace is a great backdrop for those wedding party photographs. We also have a miniature chapel located across the highway on our river front property. This small facility is open for quiet contemplation all the time. Wildwood Chapel can be reserved for small weddings (inside seating capacity is only nine), although we’ve had larger ceremonies with guests seated outside on warm summer days. Here’s a copy of our weddings brochure (pdf). and some wedding resources (pdf).
This is a perfect spot for family get-togethers. The kids love the bunnies, and the adults can gather and reminisce around one or more of the larger cabins. Meals can be as simple as meeting at The Eatery, or the kitchens in the cabins can be brought into play for a family potluck. The Brookhaven activity room is available for a memory-evoking slide show or home movies. For many years we hosted Trinity Presbyterian Church retreats, where people made really deep, wonderful friendships to last a life time. These folks still come up, small group reunions now, and we all get together and reminisce about great times had, and catch up on what everyone is doing. Need help planning your family reunion?
Whether your group is traveling in a tour bus, rallying in RV’s or antique roadsters, or negotiating the North Cascades Highway by two-wheeled transport, the Resort is a welcome rest and overnight spot on the Puget Sound side of the mountains. The Eatery has a special menu just for tour groups who are on a tight schedule and would like to get in and out quickly.
We invite all you event planners who are looking for a great place for your company to have that wonderful annual picnic or day retreat, to consider our facilities. AT&T Wireless, Pacific NW Bell, banking firms, senior citizen retirement homes, and many bus tours are some of our customers. We have large BBQ’s that can put out food for a lot of people. If the group wants to stay overnight, we have our cabins as well as tenting and RV camping. At night, the fire pit is very cozy for telling wonderful stories, or having a song fest. Sack races, egg tossing, wheel barrel races, bunny hole golf, volleyball, badminton, horse shoes, and water balloon tosses can be some of the old fashioned fun at your company picnic or gathering. Come up and let us make memories for you and your group. We are only two hours from Seattle, but well worth the trip. Our bunnies will be waiting to entertain you.
If you are a corporate trainer, motivational speaker or special interest consultant and program presenter, we’d like to invite you consider holding your next event here at Skagit River Resort. We have small and large public spaces, space for outdoor activities, can provide for meal service, and have overnight accommodations in several price ranges should your attendees come from a distance or if you plan a multi-day presentation.
