Workshops will occur on the sixty-seven enchanted acres nestled into the Cascades along Icicle Creek. The resort’s architecture and landscaping were designed to blend with nature and to preserve or restore the natural landscaping and habitat of the area. Guest rooms and meeting areas reflect an atmosphere of rustic elegance, and intentionally foster interaction and dialogue.
Sleeping Lady’s commitment to the arts and music are reflected in its extensive collection of original artwork and folk art, and its partnership with Icicle Creek Center for the Arts, whose offices are located onsite. Icicle Creek administers a year ‘round Sleeping Lady performing arts series, and produces its own classical, jazz and acoustic chamber music programs at Sleeping Lady, including its summer Chamber Music Festival.
Founded by owner Harriet Bullitt, whose family has had close ties to the area since 1931, Sleeping Lady was built with environmentally sensitive construction methods, and incorporates environmental conservation into its daily operations. It has been recognized for setting standards of excellence in ecotourism and ecobuilding industries.

Sleeping Lady has long been known for its sustainable and ecologically-minded practices. The site was once the location of the Civilian Conservation Corps, known as Camp Icicle, during the 1930s and 1940s. When Harriet Bullitt purchased the land in 1991, 18 buildings which had been a part of the camp were saved and remodeled to meet or exceed current building and energy codes. New buildings were constructed to blend with the original style and the land was replanted with native vegetation.
Designed with the environment in mind, additional sustainable features include:
- 28,000 linear feet of Trex decking made from recycled plastic bags and wood scraps
- A Geo-exchange system supplies heating and cooling through underground tubes insulated in the earth
- Reclaimed wood sourced on site used in construction
- An organic garden that provides ingredients for the kitchen and composting of organic kitchen waste
- Energy saving compact fluorescent lights and occupancy sensors control lighting where appropriate
- Electric vehicles used by maintenance staff
- Water-conserving fixtures in bathrooms, including tap aerators and low-flow shower heads and toilets
- Water based paints and stains used throughout the property
- Conference and guest rooms make the best use of natural lighting and use natural materials in furniture, bedding, and construction materials
