Recognized for its intelligently designed architecture in harmony with the natural surroundings (and great food!), the center emphasizes the interactions among human beings, the arts and nature to create an atmosphere of productive dialogue and creative inspiration. WiFi is available throughout the resort.
LUXURY CABIN SLEEPING
Imagine drifting to sleep in a cozy mountain setting under a fluffy down comforter and waking to morning birdsong. Guest rooms at Sleeping Lady are arranged in clusters made up of 6-10 private rooms. There are six unique clusters, each named for a nearby natural feature; Cottonwood, Rock, Pond, Meadow, Fountain, and Forest. All guest rooms feature private baths and a warm, welcoming décor that reflects the mountain elegance of Sleeping Lady’s architecture. Canine companion rooms upon request, first come first serve.
Please note: Cabins at Sleeping Lady are shared sleeping , we pair you with another conference attendee, and not always with people you know. Once you register you will be contacted to inquire about your rooming preferences. If you know other attendees you would like to room with you will be able to list their names. Every effort will be made to meet your requests. Please contact us prior to registering if you have any concerns.
GOURMET DINING EXPERIENCE
The Kingfisher Restaurant & Wine Bar features gourmet meals created with the freshest local ingredients, many from Sleeping Lady’s own two-acre organic garden. Meals are chef’s choice and are served buffet style in Kingfisher’s lodge-style setting which features exposed wood beams, river rock, and sweeping views of Icicle Canyon. In the summer months, the terrace and the creekside meadow are available for outdoor seating.
