Lummi Island 

Lummi Island, in Washington, is part of the San Juan Islands archipelago, located in the Salish Sea just south of the Canadian border. Bellingham Bay glitters to the east; the celebrated San Juan Islands dot their way south; the necklace of the Gulf Islands Archipelago in British Columbia stretches to the north. Stately Mt. Baker and the magnificent Canadian Cascades rise to the sky to keep watch over the island.

REC Retreats has a pastoral setting; situated on eight tranquil acres, it has a view of Mt. Baker, the Canadian Cascades, and Hales Passage (with sneak peeks of the ferry gliding by.) The house has windows on all sides, bringing the inspirational outdoor world of the island indoors. The Pacific Northwest is stunning, and while there are other beautiful places in which to gather, what sets REC Retreats apart is how we treat you. And how we treat your guests.
