A full weekend wedding or commitment celebration allows you to spend relaxing quality time with your loved ones. Take the time to catch up with friends and family from far away, swap stories around the campfire and create magical memories on nearby forest trails leading to mountain vistas and picturesque waterfalls. We offer an affordable wedding package that includes rehearsal, ceremony, reception, meals and lodging—all in one breathtaking location.

From the shore of Lake Crescent to historic Rosemary Inn, you can find the indoor and outdoor spaces to best suit the needs of you and your guests on your special day. Our wedding package includes exclusive use of our campus, which means that you have access to everything we have to offer.
Built by craftsmen at the turn of the 20th Century, this restored lodge includes the dining room, cedar room meeting space and a cozy library (perfect for a dressing room) overlooking the campus grounds along the shores of Lake Crescent.
You will have exclusive use of our campus during your event. For decorations, you are limited only by the natural beauty, your own creativity, and a few campus and Olympic National Park regulations.
We recognize that great food can add a special touch to your wedding day, so our chefs prepare delicious meals to satisfy your guests.
Rehearsal dinner: Your entrée options include customizable burrito bar or penne pasta with marinara sauce. Rehearsal dinners with less than 70 guests can also choose teriyaki chicken with stir fry veggies, homemade pizza with salad bar and baked chicken with mashed potatoes. Entrees are accompanied by a side dish, vegetable and dessert.
Saturday breakfast & lunch: Start your morning off right with a hearty meal of pancakes and sausage or French toast and sausage. Additionally, there is always cold cereal and fruit to choose from, as well as coffee, tea, milk and juice. A make-it-yourself sack lunch spread is set out with breakfast.
Wedding dinner: Our wedding meal is based around wild Pacific salmon, served with roasted red pepper cream sauce or marionberry reduction sauce. It is served with almond rice pilaf, and broccoli with Asiago cheese cream sauce. We can also provide a completely vegetarian or vegan menu, if you prefer. The wedding party is responsible for the wedding cake.
Sunday breakfast: Our delicious fresh basil scrambled eggs with buttermilk biscuits, sausage and fruit are a great way to finish your momentous weekend celebration.
To maximize the event experience, your guests are welcome to stay in our cabins. Between our standard dormitory style cabins and our historic cabins, we have enough lodging on campus for approximately 70 to 150 people.
Our standard cabins are modern, heated and air-conditioned cabins that can accommodate 12–120 guests. Each cabin has four or six private rooms and each room sleeps two to six guests. Cabins have their own restrooms and showers or are located adjacent to a shared bathhouse. Wheelchair accessible facilities are available.
Our historic cabins have a unique charm and feature the historical construction of our property. Each cabin is different in layout and size, accommodate two to seven guests and include a private restroom.
