I needed a quiet get-away after a couple of intense months. A place where my mind could drift and my soul could get back in rhythm. I found that at Selah. It certainly lives up to its name! I don't usually travel alone, so this was a real adventure for me! I was warmly welcomed and felt at home right away. The walk on the beach had many oyster shells shining like pearls in the evening sun and driftwood to sit on and enjoy the view, and the breeze from the water. There is a state park very nearby for walks as well. The Inn was very nicely decorated with themed rooms. I was in the Shorline room with a fishing theme. The room was very clean, and very comfortable. I felt so safe and cared for! There were even silk/terry robes in the closet! A deck faces out toward the water with a bench all around to sit on. There were very wide and comfy rocking chairs already faced out to the water. There were many birds, I saw eagle and heard mourning doves, there were seagulls as well. I slept very peacefully after a shower with many choices on the showerhead. A paper was delivered in the morning. Coffee was very robust and tasty. The best breakfast I have ever had was waiting for me after my walk in the park. Bonnie told me "We start with dessert here." as she smiled and placed baked oatmeal on my table in the sunny breakfast room. The next coarse was the tastiest Eggs Benedict I have ever enjoyed! The Inn Keepers were there when I needed them and not there when I wanted my mind to just drift. They seemed to have an instinct about that. There are people who operate with special giftedness, and that was true of Bonnie and Pat. They have put their heart into the decorations they chose, from the river rock fireplace with hand carved mantle, to comfortable leather love seat in the library. I saw that there was a very nice, large conference room with a dry erase board behind light-colored wooden doors. Everything about this Selah Inn made me feel like both royalty and at home at the same time. It is well named Selah for it is a very nice place to pause, reflect quietly, and praise! This is a very special jewel tucked away at the end of Hood Canal. I am so glad I found it! I plan to return....often.
