Internship at the Inn

We are offering an opportunity for an Evergreen student to undertake an internship here at the Inn. TJ Johnson, Evergreen Professor and of Urban Futures Farm, suggested that we look at Evergreen and its pool of students as a resource for the Inn. He had interns at his farm. We want to emulate that and find a student who is knowledgeable and passionate about sustainable agriculture, to help us with our large vegetable garden and other gardens at the Inn. Our goal is to find someone that not only is willing to get their hands dirty, but to put...

Security Camera Door Bell

A lot of guests have noted that we have a fancy door bell, that features a camera on it. We do indeed use the Ring doorbell. We have had it in operation now for a few months and love it. It allows us to be notified when there is motion in front of the Inn, and of course when the doorbell is rung. It gives the ability for two way communication even when we are not at the Inn (albeit this is not perfect every time). One of the best features for us is knowing when we missed someone that came to the front door, but maybe did not ring it. That person is recorded in their activity, whether that be dropping off a package or simply scoping out the gardens. It has even caught a suspicious character walking around our car park late at night. They were shocked that we went out and asked them what they were doing. It did the job and scared them off! They also offer a “”stick-up” camera that does not feature a doorbell activated, but still gives you two way communication and cloud recording. Ring Doorbell Coupon We even joined the Ring Explorers program that gives our friends and neighbors a nice discount on their purchase. The code will give residents $25.00 off their doorbell purchase. Your code is “9ringolympia.” All Lowercase. Just...

Last Minute Summer Getaways

We are in the height of summer season here in Olympia, Washington. However we release some of you still love to have unplanned last minute summer getaways. You jump in your car, on your bike, or on a train and head somewhere for a night or more. Nothing booked in advance. Now we do not always have rooms available at the last minute, especially during summer and on weekends. For those occasions that we do, we offer a last minute special. For a same day booking. We also see so many guests who comment that they should have stayed longer in Olympia. After all it is the perfect place to base yourself for the region. Make your base-camp  Olympia! So when available, if your room is empty the day you were going to check out, for $100 more (cash only), you can stay another night. Note that these offers are not bookable anywhere online. You have to call and ask us. Secure the booking with a credit card, but pay cash on...
