"WOW, what an amazing 24 hours—I now know why everyone wanted to come back to Willows Lodge. The Willows experience is something to behold. There was not a thing we needed, asked for, or that wasn’t anticipated for us by your team. The food was amazing as is the entire property. And, referencing your team, you just don’t get service like that anywhere anymore and it was just so genuine. Thanks so much for making me look like a superstar."
Sandy Oak, West Region ThyssenKrupp Elevator Americas
" Everything was perfect. Thank you for all your support. Some comments from the team since returning include:
"That was the best offsite of any I've ever attended, at any company I've worked for."
"The setting was perfect. I'm going to bring my spouse to Willows Lodge for a get-away now!"
"The staff and food make the week really special."
Tanaya K. Caim, Juno Therapeutics, Inc.

Your warm environment, 5 star rooms, superb food and wine, fun activities, and incredible service easily exceeds expectations. Congratulations to your entire team for delivering an outstanding and memorable experience."
Norm Levy, Strategic Development Corporation
"I am NOT sure that you understand what you guys have here at the Willows. It is the smoothest, friendliest, most efficient, customer focused environment that I have ever worked with. I am not just saying this. You are truly blessed! This week would have been nothing without your creativity, leadership and full on spunk!"
Debi Speers, Eagles Flight
“The evening was just perfect! You folks did such a wonderful job, I can’t praise you enough. I received many wonderful comments on how wonderful the food and service was. (Especially the food.) As I stated before, this was my 1st corporate function...and because of you, it not only ran very smoothly, it was very “stress free”.
Brandi, Inrix Corporation
“...I cannot say enough good things about this property: accommodating, gracious...every employee from server to housekeeper to guest services agents genuinely like their job and you can tell they want to be here. The food has been excellent, really top notch, not like any hotel/conference food we have ever had. Every meal was truly above expectation. I could go on and on!...
Mark Nass, Strategic Development, Pacific NW Region, Phillips 66
"The staff exhibited a great amount of flexibility and cooperation to adapt to the ever-changing needs of our meeting. We were truly impressed with how the staff members pulled together to react to our requests. Their efforts enabled us to focus on the other details and activities that needed to take place."
Lisa Theule, Foremost Insurance Group
“As usual, we had a volume of very favorable comments from a number of attendees about what a great meeting it was and what a tremendous facility the Willows Lodge provides! One of the corporate guys from Indiana stood up at the Saturday night dinner and said he had attended most of the distributorship meetings throughout the US and none were even close to what was offered by us for quality, educational advancement and facilities. He promised to return any time we asked! We can’t ask for a better endorsement! Thank you for a job exceptionally well done!”
William Crist, Zimmer Northwest
“I want to thank you and your entire staff for the wonderful service you provided at our board retreat last weekend. I have had nothing but positive remarks from board members, who were very pleased with the facility, the staff, and the service. While it’s always nice to try something new, I don’t know why we would want to go anywhere else for our annual retreat. I think the board members feel the same way.”
Laura Merritt, City University of Seattle
