St. Andrew's House
St. Andrew's House is located just south and west of 1:45 minutes from Seattle, 40 minutes from Olympia. We encourage our retreat guests to make getting here a part of their retreat and utilize the ferry or travel I5 and scenic hwy 101.
We have many recreation options, from hiking to kayaking, golfing to fishing. We are only .25 miles from Alderbrook Resort, a 5 star destination resort and spa. Boat tours, kayaking and other water activities are offered there. Our neighbor retreat facility, Harmony Hill is kind enough to let us use their outdoor labyrinths (when available). On site, we offer beach access and a short hike through the woods which begins on our property. Onsite Massage services can be provided through a third party, Kaleidoscope Massage Therapy. Winery tours are offered through Hood Canal Winery.
