About Us

Welcome to The Cutting Garden a quiet, 24 acre country estate designed and created especially for weddings and parties. Located just 3 miles north of sunny Sequim, in the rain shadow of the Olympic Mountains, with just 13 inches of rain a year, we are the driest area in Western Washington. In additions to a truly spectacular panoramic view of the Olympic Mountains, we offer acres of flowers, lavender, horses and llamas. Our sunny yellow farmhouse, which was built in 1999 to replicate an authentic 1880 resort and boarding house offers:

  • A spacious bridal suite (changing room and bathroom) overlooking the gardens.
  • Gas fireplace
  • Hardwood dance floors
  • Sound system with 5 CD changer
  • Full kitchen including gas range
  • 2 bathrooms (one ADA accessible)
  • Antique furnishings
  • Original artwork
  • A generous 8 foot wide porch that wraps all the way around the farmhouse and adds 1,200 square feet of covered space.
  • An ADA accessible ramp from the driveway to the porch
  • Unobstructed panoramic views of the Olympic Mountains from all the south facing windows.

Sequim is just a half hour ferry ride and 65 freeway miles from downtown Seattle, we offer a slow paced, quiet country getaway that is near enough for a day trip, yet a world away from the city.

Our lush grounds with their English cottage gardens, tailored pathways and expansive lawns provide a private venue for your wedding and reception. All of the following (and much more) are included in your rental:

  • 30 X 45' frame tent which creates shade or shelter and accommodates 104 guests seated at 5 foot round tables or 200 guests seated theatre style
  • 200 - white chairs (set up and take down included)
  • 24 - 5' round tables (set up and take down included)
  • 12 - 6' rectangular tables (set up and take down included)
  • 30' wide semi-circular Ceremony Pergola, festooned with colorful flowers May through September, it frames the mountain views and easily accommodates large wedding parties
  • A custom built children's playhouse

Our farm takes its name from the one acre cutting garden which offers thousands of blooms (from asters to zinnias) June through September. Even if you don't get married at The Cutting Garden, you can still gather buckets filled with flowers for your wedding or party.

Come harvest enormous bundles of lavender from our one acre field…harvest is usually around the 4th of July, please contact us in late June to get exact harvest times.
