    No. Only service animals are allowed at Seabeck Conference Center. Emotional support animals are not considered service animals.
  • Do you have wifi?
    Yes. There is no cost, no password and is campus-wide.
  • Can I bring my bike to Seabeck?
    Yes and we encourage all bicyclists to use helmets. Skateboards, scooters, roller blades, and roller skates are not to be used on the grounds.
  • Do you allow alcohol?
    Yes. Alcoholic beverages may only be consumed in your rooms or in your meeting rooms. Alcohol may never be consumed in public places, the Dining Room, at the beach, or visible out on the grounds.
  • Do you allow smoking?
    Yes but you must follow the WA state law, which bans smoking inside buildings and 25 or more feet from any door or window. Marijuana is prohibited on the grounds. For safety purposes, absolutely no smoking is allowed in grassy or wooded areas, including trails.
  • Do you have a quiet time at Seabeck?
    Quiet hours are from 10:00 pm until 7:00 am. Noise at Seabeck coming from guest activities can affect the peace and quiet of other groups on the grounds and the surrounding community. The use of amplified music should be limited to places and volumes that do not carry beyond the grounds. The Kitsap County Noise Ordinance prohibits music or other noises that can be heard off the grounds after 10:00 pm. Seabeck reserves the right to ask groups to modify their activity or equipment to comply with this policy.
  • Can I arrive early on the day my retreat starts?
    We ask that participants of retreats do not come earlier than the start time of the agreement between the group and Seabeck Conference Center. We are usually saying goodbye to one group and hello to another in the same day. Cleaning needs to be done to get ready for the new group before we are able to give out keys to the rooms.
  • What should I bring?
    Due to our unpredictable Northwest weather, as well as our graveled paths and other uneven surfaces, we recommend that all guests bring a pair of comfortable walking shoes with good tread. This will also be helpful for hiking our trails. Also, a jacket, comfortable layered clothing and an umbrella are recommended. And don't forget the flashlight. When you are out of the city and into the woods, it is very dark at night.
  • Should I bring bottled water?
    We have really good tap water here at Seabeck. There are also water bottle filling stations in the Inn Lobby, Pines and the Meeting House.
  • Are the rooms air conditioned?
    We do not have air conditioning in the rooms. Juniper is a meeting space and has air conditioning. This is the best spot to have a cooling station in the hot summer months. Plan on bringing your own small fan if it's going to be warm. We have some fans but they go quickly as people arrive for a retreat.
  • Our group is interested in renting the facilities. Where do we start?
    Your first step is to contact us in a way that works for you. If you call, we can discuss availability, provide a price estimate, and answer all your questions about our facilities. We strongly encourage you to book a tour of the campus. This will give you a chance to see the facilities in person and discuss the details of your event. Once you are ready you will be asked to submit a signed agreement and deposit to hold your date.
  • Is there a deposit due in order to make a reservation?
    Yes. A deposit of 20% of the total anticipated bill is required to reserve space for a group. The deposit is credited to the final bill at the end of the event if the group meets its minimum number guarantees. We do not take credit or debit cards for deposits or retreat payments.
  • Is the deposit refundable if I cancel the retreat?
    If the group should cancel their reservation, the deposit is seventy-five percent (75%) refundable up to sixty (60) days or more prior to the scheduled start of the event and six (6) months before for groups with exclusive use of the facilities. If a retreat is canceled within 60 days of start date, the deposit is not refundable.
