The state's first herb farm, which inspired the lavender industry in the Sequim area, is located south of U.S. Highway 101, just off South Sequim Avenue.

Five unique theme rooms await visitors at the 100-year-old Bell House.

The visit to Toni Anderson's farm also will feature the Petals Garden Cafe with its menu of lavender-enhanced foods, including cheesecake, a gift shop with nearly 200 varieties of herbs, more than 40 varieties of lavender and a beer garden.

Jardin du Soleil

French for Garden of the Sun, Jardin du Soleil is located four miles north of Sequim at Eberle Road on the Dungeness Scenic Loop.

Hosts Randy and Pam Nicholson invite visitors to pick their own basket of lavender, sample lavender-flavored ice cream and purchase the farm's lavender products.

Lost Mountain
