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.
Executive Chef Josh Blumenthal is on hand to prepare all your meals with a strong focus on local ingredients. Our fully stocked bar can ensure that after a productive day you have a variety of BC Wines and craft beers to quench your thirst.
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. WIFI is accessible throughout the resort, and the property is one of the few locations on Galiano with good cellular reception. A Sonos system combined with our Spotify music subscription can fulfill virtually any music request.
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.
