Our lodge is the Westwood Retreat Centre. We have a big o' kitchen, large meeting/dining area, sleeping accomodations and WI-FI.
We'll be staying in our own lodge away from other guests on the grounds.
All our meals will be served there as well.

"The Gwinwood Retreat Facility is a 29 acre retreat hidden within the urbanized area of Lacey, Washington, near Olympia. It is located on Hicks Lake. The property includes 650 feet of developed waterfront and over 700 feet of natural waterfront, including significant shoreline along the Hicks Lake wetland. The park-like setting includes about 18 acres of forested land with first-generation, second-growth timber, 4 acres of open meadow lands and 7 acres of undisturbed wetlands."

Here's the Agenda---
There isn't one.
YOU fill in the blanks. We have no guest speakers, teachers, presentations, etc. If you & your homegirls want to go on a local yarn crawl, hang out in your pj's all day or jog around the lake go right ahead. The goal is to relax!
Or as my kids say, "chillax".

There's plenty to do outdoors if you choose as well. Wanna play tennis? Knock yourself out. Care to sit by the lake with girlfriends?
You can do that too. Or you can take a canoe ride while I stand on the shoreline and wave.
Sup to you!
