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 home is well-equipped for a family or small group to enjoy, yet intimate enough for a couple's romantic getaway. The primary bedroom upstairs has a queen bed with memory foam topper and twin convertible chair-bed. The cozy room also has a vaulted ceiling and ceiling fan, comfortable chairs for reading/relaxing, satellite TV, and a full bathroom with a soaking tub and double sinks. On the main level, the smaller, colorful "Namaste Room" has a full bed and decor with a global flavor. Across the hall, the second full bathroom honors the lake setting with its rustic cabin decor.

Besides the 2 bedrooms, other sleeping options in the open/non-private areas include: a full size bed tucked into the alcove of the open loft adjacent to the upstairs bedroom, a queen sofabed in the living room, and a twin rollaway bed. There's a portacrib for little ones too. Plenty of linens are provided for the convertible beds. (Though up to 10 could sleep in these beds, the house is most comfortable with no more than 6 adults and 2 kids, so that is our occupancy limit.)

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. 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 together seat 8.

The Harmony Retreat has secure wireless Internet access, so feel free to bring your laptop or tablet. There is a folding desk and chair available if you need to set up a temporary office during your visit. Local phone service is free; bring your cell phone for long distance calls. Enjoy a variety of board games, books, magazines, and DVDs for all ages. 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 paths, garden art, seating spots, 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 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.) Across the street and through a greenbelt, there's a community swimming dock and lakeside picnic table.

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, explore nature trails and the lake at Ike Kinswa State Park, see the Mossyrock Dam, walk through the show gardens of DeGoede Bulb Farm, take a day trip to Mt. Rainier to hit the trails, see waterfalls, and learn at the visitors center, 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.

Where you’ll be

Silver Creek, Washington, United States

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.
