Kirkland Meetings: Teambuilding Activities on Lake Washingtonphoto

With over 9,000 square feet of flexible indoor-outdoor meeting and event space, the Woodmark Hotel on Lake Washington is a convenient location for any Seattle area meeting or event. Only seven miles east of Seattle and minutes from bordering eastside communities of Redmond and Bellevue, the Woodmark’s idyllic lakeside location provides endless opportunities for unique teambuilding activities.

Here are a few of the Woodmark's favorites:

Stand-up Paddleboard Excursion  -  Starting May 1st and featured throughout the summer months, reserve paddleboards for your group of up to 20 or more!

Stand-up Paddleboard Yoga Class  -  Fan of the work/life balance philosophy? Try yoga on the water for a challenging yet refreshing experience. Woodmark's Director of Adrenaline Traci Bartee of Fly Fitness will guide your attendees in this unique group fitness class.

Cruise on Lake Washington  -  With access to the Carillon Point Marina, charter a cruise for your group and set out on the lake (daytime or evening) for a memorable event. A great way to unwind after a productive day of meetings is a sunset cocktail cruise!

Boat Rentals & Watersports  -  Make a big splash! Starting May 1st, Woodmark Waterfront Adventures launches its season with a variety of boat and equipment rentals. Dedicated to providing memorable experiences during your event or meeting, reinvigorate your attendees with a customized lake outing.

Jet Ski Adventure  -  Get the whole fleet! Provided through Woodmark Waterfront Adventures, Jet Ski outings are a blast for teambuilding. With advanced notice, we can provide a watercraft for each attendee!

Polar Plunge  -  The polar plunge is a unique idea for meetings near Seattle that highlights a local tradition in the Pacific Northwest. Conference goers and corporate meeting attendees can dive into the cold and refreshing waters of Lake Washington. In a post-lake jump experience, participants can proceed to Woodmark's day spa to have some relaxing and rejuvenating treatments. 

Waterfront Fitness Classes  -  Corporate travelers can join their colleagues in high energy fitness classes or relaxing yoga sessions on Woodmark’s waterfront lawn.  Group fitness classes are a great way to get participants pumped up, energized and ready to take on their next conference or meeting challenge!
