Owned and operated since 1954 by the Diocese of Olympia, the Episcopal Church of Western Washington,
the mission of St. Andrew’s House is to provide retreats for individual & group reflection
and community-building in communion with God and Creation.
St. Andrew's Lodge
Traditional log cabin style walls, elegant hardwood floors, a massive stone hearth, two oak staircases leading to an overhanging balcony and two bedroom wings combine to make for a retreat experience like no other. The Lodge can accommodate 30 overnight guests; larger groups can book concurrently Bayne Cottage with space for 8 more. Guests often remark on the warmth and nurturing feeling experienced because of our excellent staff, food & facilities.
Our Food is the stuff of legend, with Chef Treacy's creative farm-to-table meals sourced from the growers of South Sound Fresh and other local cooperatives. We are happy to provide options for persons with special dietary restrictions with appropriate notice.
The Grounds of St. Andrew's, lovingly tended by Caretaker Karen, are particularly stunning & serene. Stroll through the gardens which grow herbs for our meals and get lost in the spectacular view of the Olympic Mountains.
Our hand-crafted Chapel, with its vaulted ceiling and large windows overlooking the Hood Canal, can hold up to 100 guests and is perfect for worship, presentations, art-making and special events.
