Willows Inn is the place to go for foodies who also want to enjoy a tranquil escape. The inn is considered a “gastronomic retreat,” and is run by Chef Blaine Wetzel who earned his forager’s badge under Rene Redzepi at Noma in Copenhagen. The 15-room inn sits on Lummi Island, considered one of the best kept secrets in the San Juans. Half rural, half mountainous, you’ll find peaceful beaches and country roads that stretch for well over 18 miles, making it an ideal destination for walking, biking and bird watching. Willows hosts its own farm, pastures for a flock of more than 100 lambs, and a welcoming, knowledgeable staff who happily guide guests to the best the area has to offer. To add to the relaxing feel of the inn and the island, guests can enjoy a variety of massage treatments on site too, including Swedish, deep tissue, relaxation, hot stone and Lomi Lomi techniques that utilize high quality certified organic products.
