The Lavender Inn is not just a Bed & Breakfast. It has become a platform for finding ways to help others.
Over three years ago, we started a retreat for women with cancer called INNcourage. Once a year we close our doors to the general public for three days, to provide a space for healing, INNcouragement, comfort & love for women with cancer. Members from our community extend themselves to contribute dinners, lunches, massages, facials, yoga, counseling, and love, while we provide the place to rest, make friends, elevate souls, have time to one’s self, think about nothing and, of course, have a delicious breakfast.
When these beautiful ladies attend the retreat, they come in not knowing that when they leave, they stand taller, smile longer and feel lighter. You’ve heard it said before… “It takes a Village…” and we can’t thank those that participate in life changing retreat enough. Thank you: Feast for feeding our souls, Ann & Mary for relaxing our bodies, Brook for Healing our hearts, Casey for bringing out our inner beauty, and so many more.
Another amazing program that we’re involved with is Clean the World. The Lavender Inn has joined Clean the World in their effort to help save one million lives each year by donating it’s slightly-used soap and shampoo. These products often end up in landfills and contaminate fragile ground water systems.
