SUMMER 2020 UPDATE: We are now open for summer rentals! We welcome you to book now for a relaxing break after the months of quarantine. Come enjoy the fresh air and seclusion and renew your spirit in nature during these unusual times! Because of the public health situation, bookings are limited to 6 adults & 2 children, from no more than 2 households.

Relax and enjoy the lake, and if you need to get some work done, we have wi-fi and a gorgeous real-life background for your Zoom meetings too!

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 the recently-expanded White Pass Ski Resort (two new quad chairs, a new lodge, 13 new runs, 767 additional acres) 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 daybed, 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. On the main level, the colorful "Namaste Room" has a full bed, sitting area, and decor with an international 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" HD TV with DVD player and satellite tv, hardwood floors, ceiling fan, and two spacious sofas (one converts to a comfortable queen-size bed with thick pillow-top mattress; a twin rollaway and two single foam mattresses are also available for extra sleeping options). 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 notebook. 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 8-10, 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, meditating under a canopy of tree branches, resting on a hammock, or viewing from the second floor deck. Gaze at the garden from the hot tub below the deck. Relax on weathered wood chairs on the patio, roast hot dogs and marshmallows over the fire pit, and enjoy grilling fresh-caught fish on the gas barbecue grill.

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.

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 or Mt. Rainier foothills, view Mt. St. Helens from the secluded northeast approach, and drive the back roads of this unique region.
