Schedule a getaway to the serene and beautiful Harmony Retreat and enjoy the peaceful offseason vibe of the lake! Check calendar for available dates and book your getaway now! Read the guest reviews to see why this is a fun spot for family and group gatherings, and a relaxing romantic getaway too.

There's year-round fishing on Mayfield Lake and boat parking in the driveway, with boat launch just down the street and swimming dock across the street through a pleasant greenbelt. A great place for HONEYMOONS, FAMILY REUNIONS, ANNIVERSARY & BIRTHDAY GATHERINGS, GIRLFRIEND GETAWAYS, FISHING TRIPS, HOLIDAYS, RETREATS & more!

Year-round, enjoy the 550 sq. ft. covered deck, hot tub, peaceful environment, and lake view.

The Harmony Retreat is conveniently located less than 2 miles north of Mossyrock (off US Hwy 12/White Pass Scenic Byway & 20 miles east of I-5's exit 68), on the east end of beautiful Mayfield Lake in a quiet, upscale lakeside neighborhood. The west-facing custom built home has lake views from most of the rooms and from the covered deck. In the evening, watch the sun set over the glistening lake, and at night, gaze at the stars shining brightly in the night sky, unobstructed by city lights. In summer, the 13-mile lake invites participation in all manner of water recreation -- swimming, skiing, fishing, kayaking and canoeing. In winter, snow sports are just an hour away at the newly-expanded White Pass Ski Resort (two new quad chairs, a new lodge, 13 new runs, 767 additional acres) and Mt. Rainier National Park.

The home is large enough for a family to enjoy, yet intimate enough for a couple's romantic getaway. The upstairs 'Tranquility Suite' features a queen bed with luxurious bedding, vaulted ceiling and ceiling fan, sitting area, flat screen satellite TV, and a full bathroom with a soaking tub and double sinks. The adjacent upstairs open loft has a twin futon daybed, fine for sleeping or relaxing with a good book. On the main level, the colorful 'Namaste Room' has a full bed, sitting area, and decor with an international flavor. Across the hall, the second full bathroom honors the lake setting with its rustic cabin decor.

The Harmony Retreat's Great Room invites the outside in with its two-story wall of windows facing the lake. This room features a fireplace, 32' HD LCD TV with blu-ray/DVD player and satellite, hardwood floors, ceiling fan, and two spacious sofas (one converts to a comfortable full-size bed with thick pillow-top mattress; a rollaway bed, 3 foam mattresses, and a porta-play convertible crib are also available for extra sleeping options for the whole family). The large, open kitchen is fully equipped with all you need to enjoy cooking and dining at this lakeside retreat. The dining table and counter bar together seat 8.

The Harmony Retreat has secure wireless Internet access, so feel free to bring your laptop or notebook. Local phone service on the landline is free; bring a calling card or your cell phone (AT&T, Verizon, Sprint get good reception; TMobile doesn't in this area) for long distance calls. Enjoy a variety of board games, books, magazines, and DVDs for all ages. Central heating and the fireplace create a warm ambiance in winter. Air conditioning and ceiling fans keep the home cool in the summer. There's a complete laundry room with washer, dryer, iron and ironing board too.

Outside, the 1/3-acre property features richly varied naturescaping, with stone paths, a dry creek, garden art, and many whimsical touches. Lovingly created by the original owners through years of dedicated gardening, and updated in recent years by our talented gardener friends, these grounds are a retreat too, a place to become steeped in nature's beauty, while walking the paths, meditating under a canopy of tree branches, resting on a hammock, or viewing from the second floor deck. Gaze at the garden from the hot tub from its covered area below the deck. Relax on weathered wood chairs on the patio, roast hot dogs and marshmallows over the fire pit, and enjoy grilling fresh-caught fish on the gas barbecue grill.

The private community dock is just a block down the street, where you can launch your motor boat for a day of fishing (lake is open for fishing year-round) or water-skiing. Or bring your jet-skis, canoes, kayaks, or rafts to explore the 13-mile lake and adjacent Cowlitz River canyon. A community swimming area with dock and picnic area is across the street through a greenbelt. Bike, jog, or walk on scenic country roads that meander through forest and meadows, where you're likely to spot farm animals, fields of flowers, wildlife, birds, and vistas of Mt. St. Helens, Mt. Adams, Mt. Rainier, and the neighboring foothills. Or head out by car to visit the rural towns of Mossyrock and nearby Morton, walk through the show gardens of DeGoede Bulb Farm, take a day trip to Mt. Rainier and check out the excellent visitors center and trails, in winter enjoy snow sports at nearby White Pass, go shopping at the outlet and antique stores and have lunch at historic McMenamins in nearby Centralia, view Mt. St. Helens from the northeast approach, and drive the back roads of this unique region.

About Harmony Retreat

Our family lives in Seattle and has enjoyed staying at vacation rentals internationally that we've found on VRBO. We love the convenience and unique amenities of vacation rental homes. So we wanted to create our own unique sense of 'home-away-from-home' using our travel experiences, to share with guests visiting this area.

Harmony Retreat purchased this house in 2008

Why Harmony Retreat chose Mayfield Lake

Mayfield Lake is still largely an 'undiscovered treasure' -- even people in nearby Centralia sometimes aren't aware of this 13-mile long glistening jewel just a short drive off of I-5! I spent more than a year looking for the perfect property to enjoy with my own family and to share with vacationers too, before finding the Harmony Retreat.

As a former community volunteer for the local chamber of commerce, I was well aware of a need for more lodging options as we were regularly asked for recommendations of places to stay around the lake. So I've been happy to offer this unique lodging choice for Mayfield Lake and Mossyrock-area visitors.

The Harmony Retreat is an easy drive from Portland (about 90 minutes), Olympia (about an hour) and Seattle (under 2 hours) and is also just over an hour from White Pass Ski Resort. The Mt. Rainier Visitors Center is less than an hour's drive and there are a variety of activities happening in the area all summer, including steam train rides on weekends in Elbe and Centralia, the famous Loggers Jubilee in August in Morton, the Blueberry Festival in nearby Mossyrock the first weekend in August, farmers markets, and huge flea markets that line the main drag of Packwood on Memorial Day and Labor Day weekends. Enjoy fireworks shows on the lake and in Mossyrock and Randle on 4th of July weekend too!

What makes this house unique

When my very patient realtor showed me this home after we'd viewed dozens of others over many months, I knew it was 'the one'! Located in a quiet, upscale lakefront neighborhood, it's just 2 miles from the main highway (US Hwy. 12/White Pass Scenic Byway) and the town of Mossyrock. Custom-built by its original owners, much care went into the home's construction and its surrounding gardens. Unique architectural features provide a sense of character and class that make this home much more than a 'cabin' or a 'house' -- and so we call it simply the 'Harmony Retreat.'

The large covered outdoor deck has quickly become a favorite relaxing spot for guests, where they can grill on the gas bbq grill, rest on the hammock, read, drink wine, and relax on comfortable chairs while enjoying views of the lake across the street, and the scenic foothills nearby.

Since opening for guests in April 2009, Harmony Retreat has hosted couples celebrating anniversaries, young families considering relocation to this unique rural area, active kayakers and fishing enthusiasts, youth group gatherings, scrapbooking groups, girlfriend getaways, solo retreats, and multigenerational family gatherings. Whether you're a regular visitor to Mayfield Lake looking for a new place to stay, or someone looking for a completely new destination to explore in a pristine, mountain/lake setting not far off the beaten path, we sincerely welcome you to the Harmony Retreat!

Fantastic Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

For our annual salmon fishing trip, two buddies and I spent 8 nights at Harmony Retreat. Fantastic! It was a great location for accessing the Cowlitz river below Barrier Dam (10 minute drive). Mossyrock, a short drive from the cabin, had food, groceries, gas - all the things one may need. We used both the AC and heater given the variation in whether we experienced in October. The cabin features a well stocked kitchen, linens, hot tub, library, and more. The deck is out of this world! The owner was very helpful answering all of our questions. Upon our return, we booked our next stay.

Great Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Mayfield Lake is wonderful and the Harmony Retreat offered an enjoyable spot to have fun. Brought jet ski to enjoy the lake and the community dock provided a great spot to spend the day. The home had all the amenities and the loft sleep area provided just the space to add something different for the teenager in the group. The deck was awesome to just relax and look out to the lake and the clear night sky.

Fun Weekend

  • 4 of 5

We used this house for 3 nights, a friend of ours was getting married up at beautiful Lake Mayfield. It was cozy and had some great lodge-like decor to make it feel like we were really on a vacation. Our favorite part of the house was the covered deck that is elevated and has a nice view of the lake. Overall a cozy two bedroom house that has great decor that makes you feel that you have left all behind to relax and enjoy Lake Mayfield.

Lovely quiet getaway

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable home in a quiet area. Easy walk to the lake. Comfortably and very attractively furnished. Partial lake views from the main living and eating area and the kitchen.The home is very well stocked with everything you could want - well-equipped kitchen, generous quantity of linens and towels, and many entertainment options. The huge covered deck was essential when we had family over for a BBQ - so much outdoor seating. And the lovely garden with seating area and fire pit was a special amenity. Very enjoyable place.

Very Nice

  • 4 of 5

Nice getaway close to the lake, the private dock and swim area is a joke since it's right next to the State campground and was being used by the campers. Also you need to be told there is only 3 wash clothes total so at least you can bring your own, also beware that the dinner plates provided (Very Nice) won't fit in the dish washer.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your review, I'm happy that you found the Harmony Retreat to be a nice getaway. The shared community dock and swim area, accessed through a greenbelt right across from the house, is very close to the neighboring private RV Park and campground (the state park campground is about 4 miles away on the north end of the lake). I'm surprised to hear that the RV Park campers were using the dock and swim area since they have one of their own. Of course on hot summer days, the lake does get pretty full of people out enjoying the water! We provide 2 wash cloths for each of the bathrooms (4 total), but will be getting some extras so that there are more than enough for large groups like your family of 8 guests. Thanks for that suggestion. Dishwashers can be tricky sometimes since they're not all the same. Ours does fit the dinner plates, though it helps to angle them a bit if placed on the shorter lower level. I'm always happy to help guests with any questions about how things work or where things are located etc. and welcome calls, emails and texts anytime. Thanks again!
