SUMMER 2021 UPDATE: Book now for summer getaways! Enjoy a change of scenery & gorgeous sunsets from the west-facing covered deck with comfortable seating & outdoor dining area. Relax in the hot tub, wander the garden trails, head out into nature for some fresh air therapy & physical movement to help process the stress of these recent challenging times. We offer last minute rates & discounts on longer stays. (Check calendar for current discounts.) Sorry, no pets.

The space
The Harmony Retreat is conveniently located less than 2 miles north of Mossyrock, WA (off US Hwy 12/White Pass Scenic Byway & 20 miles east of I-5's exit 68), on the east end of beautiful Mayfield Lake in a quiet, upscale lakeside neighborhood. The west-facing custom built home has lake views from most of the rooms and from the covered deck. In the evening, watch the sun set over the glistening lake, and at night, gaze at the stars shining brightly in the night sky, unobstructed by city lights. In winter, snow sports are just an hour away at White Pass Ski Resort and Mt. Rainier National Park.

The Harmony Retreat is large enough for a family to enjoy, yet intimate enough for a couple's romantic getaway. The upstairs "Tranquility Suite" features a queen bed with high thread-count sheets and memory foam topper, twin chair-bed, vaulted ceiling and ceiling fan, sitting area, satellite TV, and a full bathroom with a soaking tub and double sinks. The adjacent upstairs open loft has a full size bed tucked into the alcove. On the main level, the colorful "Namaste Room" has a full bed, sitting area, and decor with a global flavor. Across the hall, the second full bathroom honors the lake setting with its rustic cabin decor.

The Harmony Retreat's Great Room invites the outside in with its two-story wall of windows facing the lake. This room features a fireplace, 32" smart HDTV with DVD player and satellite tv stations, hardwood floors, ceiling fan, and two spacious sofas (one converts to a comfortable queen-size bed with thick pillow-top mattress; a twin rollaway is also available for extra sleeping option). The large, open kitchen is fully equipped with all you need to enjoy cooking and dining at this lakeside retreat. The dining table and counter bar seat 8.

The Harmony Retreat has secure wireless Internet access, so feel free to bring your laptop or tablet. Local phone service is free; bring a calling card or your cell phone for long distance calls. Enjoy a variety of board games, books, magazines, and DVDs for all ages. Plenty of bedding is provided for the convertible beds, with total sleeping accommodations for up to 6 adults and 2 kids, plus portacrib for little ones. Central heating and the fireplace create a warm ambiance in winter. Air conditioning and ceiling fans keep the home cool in the summer. There's a complete laundry room with washer, dryer, iron and ironing board too.

Outside, the 1/3-acre property features richly varied naturescaping, with stone paths, a dry creek, garden art, and many whimsical touches. Lovingly created by the original owners through years of dedicated gardening, these grounds are a retreat too, a place to become steeped in nature's beauty, while walking the paths, resting on a hammock, or viewing from the second floor deck. Gaze at the garden from the hot tub below the deck. Relax on the patio, gather around the gas fire pit table to roast hot dogs and marshmallows, and share laughter and stories. Enjoy grilling fresh-caught fish on the gas barbecue grill on the deck.

The private community dock is just down the street, where you can launch your motor boat for a day of fishing (lake is open for fishing year-round) or water-skiing. Or bring your jet-skis, canoe, kayak, or raft to explore the 13-mile lake and adjacent Cowlitz River canyons. (There is no boat moorage or parking at the launch but you can park in the driveway.)

Bike, jog, or walk on scenic country roads that meander through forest and meadows, where you're likely to spot farm animals, fields of flowers, wildlife, birds, and vistas of Mt. St. Helens, Mt. Adams, Mt. Rainier, and the neighboring foothills. Or head out by car to visit the rural towns of Mossyrock and nearby Morton, walk through the show gardens of DeGoede Bulb Farm, take a day trip to Mt. Rainier and check out the visitors center and trails, in winter enjoy snow sports at nearby White Pass, go shopping at the outlet and antique stores and have lunch at historic McMenamins in nearby Centralia, take a steam train ride through the Centralia countryside, view Mt. St. Helens from the secluded northeast approach, and drive the back roads of this unique region.

Small residential neighborhood with a few year-round residents but mostly vacation homes. Busy in summer with boats on lake, kids riding ATVs on roads, people outside doing yard work and enjoying the sunshine. Pretty quiet in the off-season.
