I guess when people travel (or eat, or shop), we all have our own experiences. For me, finding "No Cabbages" was a godsend. It is quiet, peaceful, and beautiful. It is an easy place to be. I would not describe it as a hippy haven AT ALL, but simply a comfortable and welcoming home.

I stayed above the garage and could not have been happier there -- in fact, I re-arranged my trip so that I could return for my last couple of days to enjoy it some more!!

The hostess and her man are friendly and accommodating, and this woodsy natural site is just the place for quiet contemplation. Having a labyrinth at my disposal...? Well, that was quite a gift. If you haven't experienced the quiet meditation of walking through a labyrinth, it's time you did. It's lush mossy greenness dissipated my stress instantly.

A no phone, no TV break from LIFE. Enjoy it, but save me a popover !!

I was so surprised at the previous review that I thought I'd offer my own view of this B&B. No Cabbages Bed & Breakfast has been described as a place where The Grateful Dead meet Martha Stewart. It has received numerous published accolades and "Best-Of" awards.

For several years, I have made overnight arrangements for out-of-town writers, artists and musicians who I have booked for local events. My preference is to ask first for the room at No Cabbages; everyone who has stayed here has been very pleased with the space. I have also spent many hours walking the No Cabbages labyrinth and believe that its quiet woodland feel may be the best I've ever experienced -- full of sudden inspiration, whether heartfelt words from another, the sudden calling of a bird or the grace that comes from within.

The house is a well-cared-for Pacific Northwest Contemporary home surrounded by native evergreen forest. It feels completely relaxed and very friendly -- children are cherished, dogs are loved, people respected. There are three rooms available, the main suite and two smaller bedrooms with a shared bath. The two smaller bedrooms are in the main house and usually offered only for reunions and spiritual group retreats.

The main accommodation is a recently-built suite above the garage. It has its own private entrance as well as a windowed second-floor "bridge" linking the suite to the main house. The suite has its own bathroom with a huge tile and glass shower. There is a king-size bed in one corner and a comfortable sitting area with couch in the other. Windows on three walls offer woodsy views and the occasional glimpse at The Narrows in the winter when the Big-leaf Maple leaves have fallen. Deer, Pileated Woodpeckers and other woodland creatures are sometimes "on view." The suite is large, covering the same "footprint" as the double-car garage and workshop below. Outside, there is a pleasant ten-minute walk along a private footpath to the county park. In an open area among the trees, an old ship hawser has been coiled into the perfect path of the Christian mystics of the 13th century (c.1220). The labyrinth is an exactly-sized and sited replica of the labyrinth laid in to the floor of France's Chartres Cathedral. The "weeds" described above in August could only have been native sword ferns which mark the path and are carefully cultivated.

The hostess is a great cook whose breakfasts are extraordinary and whose dinners are note-worthy. Lucky is the guest who is invited to share a meal or a glass of wine and conversation. In case you are wondering, the name of the B&B comes from a literary reference to the great Canadian writer, Robertson Davies. There are No Cabbage Heads here!

Well, as they advertise, if you are uptight you will not enjoy your stay here. We consider ourselves "go with the flow" type of people. We stayed 2 nights, as we were in Gig Harbor for an event.
The house is full of art which gives a lot to look at. The feeling is a 60's/early 70's hippy vibe. Not a bad thing, really. The countertops were cluttered with the owner's personal bills and letters. Stacks!
The room was fine, with a very high bed. Bathroom is older.
Breakfast was delicious and more than we could eat.
When we came in from dinner for our 2nd night, the owners were out, but the stereo was blasting! I had to fumble around for about 15 minutes to find out how to turn the volume down.
The grounds are nice, and woodsy. We walked the labyrinth which needed weeding. It was difficult to concentrate on walking and not tripping.
Our 1st night, we were the only ones there. 2nd night another couple, which we never even knew were there until breakfast, so either they were exceptionally quiet or seperate parts of the house were adequate for quiet.
