Bond Ranch Retreat is nestled at the foot hills of the Olympic Mountain Range, among woods and lavender fields. We are within easy drive to Hurricane Ridge, the Hoh Rain Forest and the amazing Dungeness Spit. Situated between the forested mountains and the dramatic ocean bluffs we retain our history as a former horse ranch with buildings handmade from local timber and our resident horses. Rustic on the outside, but cushy on the inside, each of our rooms has a unique character highlighted by antique furniture, down poufs and Pendleton blankets. Enjoy the evening bonfire under the stars, sharing local wine with your hosts and other travelers.

How lucky we were to get to stay at the Bond Ranch and meet Tess and Morris. The place is gorgeous and you are immediatley welcomed by the tail wagging four legged kids with Tess soon to make her cheerful appearance to assure that you have everything you need. They are great hosts and that Morris can tell some great stories around the campfire while we stargazed and sipped great Washington Wine. Awww....the accomodations were great and you get so relaxed, you feel as though these two need to be added to your Facebook account and Christmas card list. In all, this place is a gem and I highly suggest making your stay for more time than you originally plan because you are not going to want to leave. Oh, and I should mention that you are going to have one of the best breakfast's ever as Tess is an amazing cook. Enjoy all as we did - it was a girlfriends get-away and everyone we met at the farm was just great! Suitable for all, families, couples, girlfriends, etc. Don't miss out on this one. FIVE STARS (ps I've been in the Travel and Hospitality Industry for 28 years and this is a good find)

We loved our stay at Bond Ranch Retreat. We stayed at The Cottage, which has its own kitchen, living room, etc. so it is a different experience than when you'd be staying in one of the rooms only and have use of the common areas for breakfast etc. The Cottage is clean, nicely furnished, a wonderful bed, nice kitchen. There was a huge basket in the fridge with fruit, yoghurt, OJ, eggs, etc to make our own breakfast. I dare you to find better fruit yourself. The owners are very nice and they'll do anything to make your stay the best it can be. Our stay was just perfect, I couldn't have asked for anything more.

We stayed at the Bond Ranch Retreat a few days before the July 4th weekend. I'll summarize our impressions before going into details - my kids (4 and 2) will remember their stay at the Bond ranch more than they will our hike up to Marymere falls, our trip to Lake Crescent, or watching deer at Hurricane Ridge. It is a family-friendly place with great rooms and friendly hosts at a reasonable price. The cottage: We stayed in a one bedroom cottage - it was clean, had a comfortable queen size bed, a futon in the family room and a complete kitchen. Our hosts even put some children’s books and toys for our kids. The cottage also had a garden with tables and chairs for eating out. With 4 of us in it, it didn’t feel small. And there was complete privacy. The food: Our hosts arranged for food. None of the junk like chips, candy and cola - instead there were lots of organic fruits eggs, juice, bread etc. We really relished this. The overall location: Bond ranch, in Sequim, was conveniently located close enough to the Olympics including Lake Crescent, Hurricane Ridge and other places. Week day commute was no problem. Also, the peace and quiet at night and seeing so many stars (we actually saw satellites too!) was refreshing. Hospitality: Tess and Morris make you feel like family, give great advice on places to visit and happily share their memories from the area. The "fun": Tess and Morris were excellent hosts. And Tess especially, being a retired kindergarten teacher, was wonderful with our children. She setup a “Toad hunt” at night – my children with her found ~15 toads with flashlights, held the toads, learnt about them – great hands on learning experience! She setup a campfire and roasted marshmellows for my kids. She and Morris gave a tractor and a Quad ride to my kids which they absolutely loved. And she helped my kids feed their beautiful horses. All in all, it was a wonderful stay. We will be sure to visit them again when we visit the area.
