A view of the house from our orchard.

A Thyme for Peace is a captivating hideaway, in harmony with its environment – a mountain hollow of Northern Washington's frontier with abundant wildlife. Time slows down as you roam acres of flower gardens, organic herb and vegetable gardens, multi-fruit orchard, young pine forest, mountain meadow, and aspen springs. Our public spaces and private guest suites are decorated with timeless rustic elegance and natural forest tones. We are open year round – every season is beautiful with its own unique gifts.

Local 'sky art' can be seen from our deck.

  • Try out our little part of the forest hiking, backpacking, and mountain biking in the nearby hills.
