Seabeck Campus Photos
These photos of the Seabeck Conference Center and its surrounding views will give you a taste of the facilities and ambience to expect at the Seabeck Haiku Getaway. We hope you'll be able to see all of Seabeck's many facilities for yourself, including twenty haiku plaques permanently installed around the campus—please do join us!

The Seabeck Conference Center map. Over the years we've stayed in the Historic Inn, Reeser, Spruce, Pines, Salal, Cedars, Maples, Firs, Huckleberry, Hemlock, and Mardrona, and had our meetings in Reeser, the Lounge, Colman Center, and the Meeting House. Our Haiku Northwest haiku plaques are installed all over the campus.

The conference center has several historic houses on its grounds, many next to the lagoon.
Our accommodations and meeting rooms for 2008 and 2009 were at historic Reeser House. We had lovely views across the lagoon towards the mountains, too! Reeser has a large meeting room for 30 people, plus another meeting room with a kitchen, and we were very comfortable there.
This is the main lodge at the Seabeck Conference Center. The dining hall where we have our meals is just off the right side of the picture.

Visit the antique shop, the general store, and a few other local business at the Seabeck marina, across the lagoon from the conference center.
There's lots to do at the conference center, such as playing volleyball, ping pong, hiking to the historic cemetery, walking to the Cathedral in the Woods, borrowing a free boat to paddle on the lagoon, and much more.
On the Sunday of at least one of our past retreats, we've visited historic Emel House, where Haiku Northwest member Alice Frampton grew up, at Scenic Beach State Park.
The historic inn serves as the Seabeck Conference Center headquarters and offices, with accommodations, a comfortable lobby (with daily coffee service), and more!

In 2009 we met in this building, called The Lounge. This cozy carpeted A-frame building has a wood stove and accommodated up to 40 enthusiastic haiku poets.

Please join us for our meals here, at the conference center dining hall!
An aerial view of Seabeck. The Seabeck Conference Center is to the left, out of the picture. The road on the left separates the lagoon from Seabeck Bay. In the center is the Seabeck Marina, which has been rebuilt in a new configuration since this picture was taken.
This is Madrona House, which we’ve used in the past for our overflow accommodations when we had enough retreat attendees to fill our primary accommodations.
From 2010 to 2016, and again in 2021, we met here, at the Colman building, where we've made great use of the craft room downstairs.
From 2017 to 2019 we met here, at the Meeting House, which can accommodate up to 250 people downstairs, and 60 people upstairs. The building also has its own lounge, with bathrooms close by, so we've been very comfortable here.
