"We could not have enjoyed our stay at Heartful Retreats any more! The hosts Derek & Yvette are so incredibly welcoming and have created a rejuvenating space to mirror that. We were greeted with a glass of wine upon arrival and shown our quarters which was so much nice and more spacious than the photos can even show. We loved the flow of the house that allowed both opportunities for mingling with other guests as well as restful moments of solitude. You have access to a full kitchen to make a meal on your own, and the provided hot breakfast in the mornings is delicious and filling. Yvette’s original paintings are displayed all over the house, and should you choose to pick up your paintbrush yourself, they have supplies for you or you can even take a class with Yvette. They also have a retreat space for yoga, a music / reading room, a private PNW beach, and a lush garden, complete with outdoor dining tables and fire pits for with a gorgeous view of Fidalgo Bay. Two super friendly labs stay outside on the property if you need some canine cuddles.
