Tilikum Lodge

Creating space for friends to gather.

Tilikum Lodge is again welcoming retreat and guest groups and the Lodge Staff is excited to serve you and your group with clean comfortable rooms and nutritious home-style meals.

Considering current COVID-19 restrictions, Tilikum is ideally suited to host midweek and weekend guest groups from 15 to 50 people. The spacious 14,000 square foot Tilikum Lodge has 17 bedrooms with private restrooms either in the room or right next door. Meeting rooms and common areas are large enough to spread out for small gatherings.

Here’s what Tilikum is doing to help keep you safe:

  • Tilikum follows all State of Oregon and Yamhill County guidelines for hosting guest groups.
  • Every day Tilikum staff performs health screenings with temperature checks when they arrive for work.
  • Housekeeping employs excellent products to effectively sanitize every surface, and has increased cleaning routines to ensure every surface is properly sanitized between uses.
  • The Yamhill County Health Department conducted an inspection of the Dining Room and Kitchen in early September and passed with a 100% rating.
  • Linens are included at no additional charge.

fawver-center-exteriorThe Fawver Center multipurpose gymnasium has a basketball court, indoor fire pit, rock climbing wall, cafeteria-style tables, restrooms, and kitchen nook with sink and refrigerator. It is about a 10 minute walk from the Lodge. The Group Coordinator for the retreat needs to confirm your preferred days and time to reserve the Fawver Center so it does not conflict with other onsite groups.
