After traveling for two weeks in the Pacific Northwest, the Essence of Health Retreat was our last stop before returning to Seattle to fly east. WOW! This is nothing like a hotel or even a B&B. It is an apartment complete with stocked kitchen, bedroom (with a wonderfully comfortable bed), gas fireplace, and hot tub on the porch. How marvelous... More

I highly recommend staying at the Essence of Health while visiting Mt St. Helens and Mt. Rainier. We stayed 2 nights and loved having an entire suite of rooms rather than a hotel room. We enjoyed the hot tub and the fireplace and the overall rustic vibe of the place. The decor was very Pacific Northwest. Much care has gone... More

After much searching, I found this wonderful B&B near Mount Saint Helens. The accommodations were 2 bedrooms with a combined living/dinning/kitchen area. All was very tastefully appointed. We had just left Portland - where the temperature was 100+. I was concerned that the temperature in the rooms would be uncomfortable since there is not AC. - I called and we... More

We stayed two nights and would stay there again in a heartbeat. The minute we walked in we were pleasantly surprised about how tastefully decorated and beautiful this place was. The pictures on the internet don't do it justice. It's gorgeous, but not overdone. Very, very tasteful. Colors beautiful and inviting. One can easily see that lots of thought was... More

Tired from our roadtrip we decided to look for a quiet place to stay, away from the hustle and bustle, so we could catch our breath. While in the car, I found Essence of Health on Tripadvisor, and called on a whim to see if they had same day availability. Although they don't usually accommodate same-day guests, the hosts were...

Great host and hostess and they give massages! Really what more could you ask for? The price was fab for this little gem. Peaceful place to just rest and watch the wildlife out the window. Deer and Birds kept us entertained until dark. The Host stock it with a nice assortment of breakfast treats and bottled water, juice, coffee, and... More

This B&B is not just a place to stay, but a place to enjoy. All the reviews have stated how peaceful and relaxing it is. One may have to share the unit if the other bedroom is rented but we had the place to ourselves. Spacious, great appliances down to grinder for coffee. The host have put a lot of... More

Really super stay at the Essence - loved the setting, the relaxation and the hot tub! The welcome was friendly, the room comfortable and the environment so chilled out. Mount St Helens is a fascinating place to visit and this is a really ideal place from which to start

This retreat is a beautiful refuge for the road weary traveler. All the other reviews have captured it perfectly: wonderful hosts, extraordinarily clean, beautifully decorated, deer and birds abound, etc. What more can I say except I wish we had allowed more time to stay there, hike some of the trails near the lower Mt. St. Helens visitors center and... More

My husband and I loved our stay at Essence of Health Retreat . It was such a peaceful place to rest and recharge during our great Pacific Northwest trip. The hosts are very friendly. You can use the hot tub or the fire pit. We were content just to sit in the rockers on the porch and enjoy the view... More
