Do you simply need to get away and rediscover your own “center”? Are you seeking a sanctuary where you can focus on yourself and design your own days? Find your safe haven at REC Retreats on Lummi Island and plan your private retreat.

There are abundant ways to recharge at REC Retreats: Soak in the hot tub and schedule a massage. Make music or create art. Write. During the winter, take advantage of the overstuffed chairs in front of a cozy fire, and during the summer, sit by a crackling campfire or take in the view from an Adirondack chair on the sunny deck! 

Lummi Island is rich with opportunities to rejuvenate: Explore the island. Beach comb. Hike. Star gaze. Bike. Take a self-guided artist studio tour.  

Individual Escapes are designed to serve one person (or one couple) at a time. Kjerstin, REC Retreats founder and owner, will be onsite at all times, and will graciously give you peace and solitude if that is what you seek, but activities are available and fully customized to your unique needs for an extra fee.


Lummi Island is conveniently located - the ferry is only 13 minutes west of I-5. (Exit 260, north of Bellingham)
