Connect, slow down, be inspired by the calm of nature and inspire each other! We’ll be resting and creating together at a private rustically elegant hand-built timber frame lodge set on a 20 acre beaver pond wildlife sanctuary at the north end of Camano Island, WA. Surrounded by 360 degrees of forest and wetlands at the end of a private road, come relax and explore the 2.5 acres of both landscaped and natural habitat, a 6 person enzyme-only hot tub, a large fire pit with café tables, a quiet reading nook under wisteria arbor, horse shoes and nearby state parks and beaches.
