Invite a little bit of Eden-Wild into your life!
Transform your mind, body and artsy soul through art! Every morning after breakfast, Elida will guide you through a self-reflection activity as she leads you in creating a beautiful, meaningful piece of art. The afternoons are yours for exploring the island and the Lopez Island way of life. Enjoy hiking, riding bikes, strolling along the rocky beaches, canoeing or your personal idea of relaxing. Then, join the Edenwild community at dinner for excellent conversation and amazing food.
As you board the ferry from Anacortes to Lopez Island, you can feel the stress of your life fall away and in no time you will move into a relaxed state of “island time!” Lopez Island is known at the “Friendly Isle” and it really lives up to its name - let it work its magic on you!
Welcome to Edenwild Inn, a Victorian inn owned by Crystal and Anthony! Enjoy your stay in one of the nine beautifully styled boutique rooms, each with its own ensuite bathroom. You'll discover intimate details that will make you feel at home from the homemade chocolate chip cookies to the basket full of cozy blankets next to the fire place. Of course, there are also luxurious treats that will transport you away from home like the lovely crystal decanter of brandy and chocolates provided in each room. The inn, like the island, is filled with serenity, charm, and a sweet sense of friendliness.
If all of this doesn’t sound lovely enough, let me add that the food will be a culinary sensation! Your mornings will start with fresh homemade pastries lovingly created by Jackie, a graduate from the Culinary Institute of America. Lunches and dinners on the island are also sure to impress - farm-to-table is a way of life on Lopez Island and the food really reflects that. Because this retreat is about feeding all parts of you…body, mind, and soul, we believe eating well is important!
The retreat includes:
~ 4 days and 3 nights at the Edenwild Inn on Lopez Island
~ Painting lessons and all painting, collaging, and journaling materials
~ Accommodations (All rooms are single occupancy rooms. Each room
has an ensuite bathroom)
~ Breakfast and dinner each day (beverages are extra)
Travelers are responsible for ferry fare, lunches, drinks, and all incidentals.
The cost for the retreat is $1,199. A $299 deposit is due by Sept. 15th and final payment is due Sept. 25th.
This year the retreat will look a little different due to COVID-19, but we are still going to have a great time! Lopez Island has different requirements than the rest of the state and has been up and running for some time now, accommodating guests without incident. They are taking all the required precautions and cleaning measures to ensure a safe place for all guests to stay.
This will be a small retreat with limited spots available, on a first come, first serve basis. We will have the entire inn to ourselves aside from staff members, but we will be in close proximity to our group of retreat attendees during group activities. Last year during the retreat we spent a lot of time outside hiking and catching the sunsets and we plan to do the same this year. We will be having meals together while following protocol and requirements. There will be mask requirements when social distancing is difficult to maintain and/or following the requirements of whatever phase Lopez Island is in during that time.
