Rent our Nordic Hall

Our Nordic Hall is once again available for rental, subject to
applicable COVID-19 requirements  from both the Governor’s Office and our
Island county Public Health Department


The Fritz Cornell Nordic Hall is a 3200 sq. ft. building, completed in June 2013.  It is located in a beautiful wooded setting at 63 Jacobs Rd, Coupeville, which is a right turn about one mile south of the intersection of Highway 20 & Main Street [in Coupeville].    It is the home of the Whidbey Island Nordic Lodge and managed by the the Nordic Lodge Building Association, a 501c2 organization.

The Hall may be rented by other organizations and individuals for their own events & activities on a first-come, first-served basis.  It is an ideal setting for family reunions, club meetings, wedding receptions, funeral receptions, T'ai Chi classes, etc.  Reservations may be made up to one year in advance.

The building is furnished with beautifully upholstered chairs and tables sufficient to seat about 120 persons in the main room (2050 sf).   A full kitchen is also available for either preparing a meal on-site or for simply warming food that is brought in. An audio-visual system is in place for use as needed.  A picnic area with a large barbeque is located in a grassy area behind the Hall.

“The Scandinavians love the wider horizon, the salty air, and sometimes even the wild waves. The blood of adventure and freedom is still coursing in their veins”. - Rønning, N. N., Fifty Years in America
