An Inspiring Setting for your Event
Serene surroundings combined with modern conveniences make Bodega Ridge an ideal venue for any group. With a total of 21 bedrooms and 2 separate meeting rooms in the lodge, we host a variety of retreats year-round, from executive leadership development to meditation training. And the fact that we are only a 50 minute sailing or 15 minute flight from the mainland makes us amazingly easy to access.
Over the years, Bodega has accommodated a range of retreats including: university research teams, the film industry, the information technology industry, environmental organizations, clothing/fashion companies & restaurant groups.
"Jesse and his staff are some of the most professional and welcoming people I have had the pleasure of working with. They were able to address any need, be it food or activity-related, swiftly and thoughtfully; continually exceeding our expectations and doing so in a fun and inclusive manner. After the first stellar experience at Bodega Ridge during our annual staff retreat, I immediately reserved space for the following year in anticipation of what would come. As expected, we were floored with another revitalizing experience. The great times had on Galiano Island will always be represented my wonderful experiences, nabled only through Jesse, his staff and the beautiful landscape and feel of Bodega Ridge."

Our two large meeting rooms are equipped with LCD projector and flip charts. High-speed WIFI is accessible throughout the resort, and the property is one of the few locations on Galiano with good cellular reception. A Sonos system, with iPod docks, plus our Deezer music subscription can fulfill virtually any music request.
A seasoned catering team will keep your group's energy high with meals, beverage service and nutritional breaks. Our chefs prepare crowd-pleasing West Coast cuisine with fresh local ingredients. A full-service bar features local craft beer and a ever changing wine list.
We have over a decade of experience hosting retreats and can offer you personalized and professional service, from assisting you in making travel plans to getting you the perfect A/V set up. Let us help make your business goals come to fruition.
Round out your retreat with yoga classes, fishing charters, kayaking, mountain biking (we have high end Kona bikes on premises), guided hikes and more. We can make recommendations or handle arrangements. Tenting, seating and tables are available for outdoor functions, as well as the lodge's spacious deck. The majority of activities are non-intimidating and beginner friendly so your whole team can take advantage of sharing the experience and tightening their bonds.
