Plan Your Stay
Washington Lavender Farm, home of our own custom “Martha’s Own” and “By George” lavender products, is a lavender farm found on more than ten acres of oceanfront farmland overlooking the Strait of Juan de Fuca between Sequim and Port Angeles, Washington. Located in the rain shadow of the Olympic Mountains, the rich soil and the ideal micro-climate of the Sequim Valley make a perfect environment for growing fine lavender. Here you can enhance your senses in fields of lavender and wildflowers, surrounded by a panorama of unparalleled views, or join us for one of our many farm events throughout the year.
Located at George Washington Inn & Estate, Washington Lavender Farm seeks to produce the finest essential oil and lavender products that have made Sequim’s heritage lavender farms famous for the past two decades. Agriculture was a passion of George Washington at Mount Vernon, and we seek to emulate his quest for the best stewardship of this rich farmland. Tour the only oceanfront lavender farm on the Olympic Peninsula and discover all that the Sequim-Dungeness Valley has to offer during your stay at the George Washington Inn!

Oceanfront lavender in the Sequim Valley,
Having grown up on a farm on the Canadian prairies and later bringing his young bride out to live on Vancouver Island as a Canadian Mountie, Dan and Janet Abbott dreamed of one day returning to Victoria and having a small farm nearby in their retirement years. From across the water on the southern bluffs of the Stait of Juan de Fuca, a parcel of land was discovered and purchased in 2002. The Carriage House, with the farm store, was subsequently built and then an adjoining parcel was added with construction on the iconic B&B inn, a replica of Mount Vernon, beginning in 2006.
Two years later the inn opened for business and a field of lavender was planted over a geothermal field that had been installed for the inn’s heating and cooling system. More lavender was added over the years with a large oceanfront labyrinth on an adjoining 10 acre parcel. A full scale replica of the Old North Bridge was constructed and landscaped with wildflowers to replicate the original site in Concord, Massachusetts. The Washington Lavender Festival began, and later the Northwest Colonial Festival, bringing lavender lovers and history buffs from across the country to enjoy the property’s unique setting where Agritourism is king.
Lavender is organically grown and harvested by hand to ensure the finest quality of steam-distilled essential oil and dried lavender bud. All lavender products are made on-site and are available in the farm store. Agriculture was a passion of George Washington at Mount Vernon, and we seek to emulate his quest for the best stewardship of this rich farmland with its beautiful panorama of snow-capped mountains, lush forests and blue ocean waters.
