Beautiful view of our meadow and vegetable garden, this room is has the feel of a meditation space. The bathroom and kitchen is a short walk outside, and is partially covered.

The space

Just 20 minutes from Belfair, Washington, Sahale is an easy drive from Seattle, Tacoma, Portland, and the Olympic Peninsula. Sahale’s 68 acres hold many gifts:
a large and quiet forest, an old orchard of many fruit varieties, and the most magical, a sacred grove of ancient cedars. The cathedral-like stillness within this 200 year old ring of cedars harmonizes with the rush of the Tahuya River, just yards away. The ever-changing river refreshes us, two bubbling springs quench our thirst, and a quiet pond stills us. Held close by hills and forest on one side, from the hot tub we enjoy the long, open vista over our valley toward the forested hills beyond the river. Thus it is that what we once dreamed has become a reality, a place we love to share.

Sahale includes:

12,000 sq. feet of experimental permaculture gardens

Orchards including apple, pear, walnuts, hazelnut, plum

Beautiful lawns, ornamental gardens with benches, vistas and


Hot tubs

Hiking and walking trails

Beautiful river access

Bird watching

Indoor and outdoor meditation spaces

The room and its art are beautiful and cozy. The community is super welcoming but also respectful of your privacy and rest. You can interact as much or as little as you like. The land is amazing, make sure to walk down to the river. And enjoy the hot tub!

The place was just what I was looking for, an escape from the city. The room is super cozy and looks up to their organic veggie garden. The bathroom and kitchen were close by as well as the hot tub. There were various visitors to the community the weekend we visited but everyone was kind and made our time even more pleasant. The property is full of surprises and felt like we were kids again, watching deer eating the apples from the trees and the salmon swimming up the sahale river. We will definitely return to this magical place filled with peace.

We had a really nice stay. Everything is welcoming and accessible, large communal kitchen with lots of cooking utensils, lots of common area, and a really nice hot tub. We also enjoyed walking and exploring around on the property. And the bed in the Wawa cabin was REALLY comfy.

"This is not like a regular hotel" Oh hell no!! There are not enough words to describe my experience! It was the best weekend ever! Colette and all the people living there are absolutely amazing. I met everybody and instantly felt like home. This is paradise for nature's lovers. The river, the cedars grove, the dears walking around, the Swamp... everything was really amazing. Oh and I almost forgot, the hot tub is huuuuge. Everything was perfect. The cabin Kopet Wawa is beautiful and the bed feels like a giant cloud. I wish I could have stayed longer. But I will come back for sure. Thank you for everything and I wish you the best for your community.

Colette seemed very nice though we never met. No one was on the property to greet us because they confused the arrival date. We helped ourself into the space full of spiders and frogs in the shower. Then woke up in the middle of the night by a associate of hers who we didn't know and they didn't know us. No communication was received on her part. Wish it would have been a better first experience with airbnb.
