SCENIC, HISTORIC VENUE OFFERS INSPIRATION AND CHARACTER
Fort Casey Inn is an inviting retreat on Washington’s Whidbey Island. Built in the early 1900s, the fully-restored facilities maintain their Georgian Revival charm while providing a serene getaway for corporate retreats, conferences and special events. The location, adjacent to Fort Casey State Park gives groups the opportunity to get away from the city, tune out distractions and have a productive retreat or conference.
The Inn was originally the housing for the non-commissioned officers who were stationed at the fort. A row of stately two-bedroom houses provide tranquil accommodations for up to 45 guests. The houses have all the modern conveniences including WiFi. The only amenities absent are televisions, but the natural beauty of the area draws visitors outdoors for entertainment.
The Inn’s conference space, Garrison Hall, is set in the trees immediately behind the housing. With a large mural depicting an early island landscape, the hall is an inviting space that offers seating for up to 45 guests. The only distractions your group will encounter are the bald eagles soaring above the treetops and the deer quietly grazing on the lawn. Garrison Hall’s kitchen is convenient for preparing your own meals or for your hired caterer. Large windows provide ample natural light, and French doors open onto a 400-square foot deck that allows your group to move the meeting outdoors when the weather cooperates.
Adjacent to Fort Casey Inn, the Camp Casey Conference Center is a large, full-service conference and retreat venue. Fitting with its educational mission, Camp Casey is available for non-profit organizations, school groups and outdoor educational programs. The Conference Center has 600 beds located in various lodging styles and a variety of buildings. The auditorium holds up to 350 guests, and there is seating for 220 in the dining room. The expansive parade grounds and beach offer countless options for outdoor team building and recreation.
Both Fort Casey Inn and Camp Casey are owned and operated by Seattle Pacific University. Fort Casey State Park provides visitors a look into the military history of the region along with opportunities for hiking and beachcombing. Guests can spend time browsing among the shops in the town of Coupeville, Washington, less than a mile from Fort Casey, or they can take a scenic ferry trip across Puget Sound to the delightful town of Port Townsend. The area is easily accessed from the Seattle area by way of I-5 and the Deception Pass Bridge or by ferry from Everett, Washington.
