Sequim, WA (pronounced "skwim") has less rainfall annually than Santa Barbara, California which is one reason it has become the Lavender Capital of America. More than 50 farms now grow the ancient herb and visitors can tour the fields, weave a lavender wand, or sip a glass of lavender ice tea. Dedicated to preserving the lovely wide-open spaces and the agricultural heritage of the Sequim-Dungeness Valley, organizations like Friends of the Fields and the Sequim-Dungeness Lavender Growers Association have been working to preserve farmlands, offer hands-on educational experiences, and create a vibrant, diverse economy.
Many Chefs in Sequim have received national acclaim for their inventive and sustainable farm-to-table Olympic Coast Cuisine at charming restaurants that are 10 to 15-minutes from Lost Mountain Lodge. Don't worry -- we'll help you find these places and avoid the tourist traps. You'll also discover wonderful Artisanal bakeries, organic creameries producing the most incredible cheese, and dozens of Organic Farms and U-Pick Berry Patches. When you add line-caught halibut, wild King salmon, Quilcene oysters, Penn Cove mussels and Dungeness crab to this cornucopia of riches, you have a food-lover's paradise.
