"Our stay at Derek and Yvette's retreat was wonderful. The building itself was amazing, with its private beach, atrium, and art studio. The provided breakfast was as good as any restaurant, and I was so pleased that Derek and Yvette could accommodate a vegan diet restriction! I spent time with Yvette during an art lesson and she is a truly wonderful person with a wealth of knowledge to provide. Anacortes is only a few minutes away, as is Whidbey island. We spent some time at Deception Pass and enjoyed hiking and watching seals! A fantastic weekend away."
