The smaller rooms are ideal for visiting classes while the suite is designed to accommodate a visiting researcher(s) who may be staying for a longer period of time. Internet access is provided via high speed satellite internet service and a wireless router.  There is also a projector and screen for power point presentations.



turtle cove dining room

There is a large common room and adjacent dining area, which can easily seat 20+ people. These rooms work well as more casual educational or meeting places and can accommodate large numbers of guests for either day-long workshops or longer retreats. Two queen futons provide additional sleeping areas, and when combined with the other 12 beds fulfill the maximum 15 person overnight accommodations.


Overall, the space throughout the Turtle Cove lodge is flexible to meet your needs. Let us know what kind of activities you have planned, and we will find ways to use the space effectively.
