Crystal and Gray wolf


Dr. Tack and Gray Wolf have lovingly and organically created a healing space with our organic garden and orchard, horses to pet, and  Nature setting with near town convenience to provide a sanctuary for guests to stay and work intensively on physical and emotional health. Or, you may want to envelop yourself in Native American wisdom and/or survival skills. We have a warm, earth oriented atmosphere, with Olympic Mountains in the distance. Our guest room offers a tempurpedic king sized bed and access to the main house, orchard, garden, and bonfire area.

We gear our organic vibrant meals to your tastes and provide a menu for your preview after determining your palate.

A Recreation Center just around the corner provides you with sauna, steam or Jacuzzi baths, racquetball, Olympic-sized pool, and multiple work-out and class opportunities.

The Olympic Peninsula is a delight to explore. The famous Dungeness Spit is 15 minutes away; we are within easy access to other delightful adventures including the Hoh Rain Forest, Sol Duc Hot Springs, Olympic Mountains, and ferry to Victoria.

In order for your stay to be all it can be let's evaluate your interests and together  format your time with us.. We will determine the nature of your visit and to what degree you would like to tap into our expertise. This website addresses much of what Dr. Crystal offers. Gray Wolf is a skilled Native Craftsmen, Storyteller, Native American historian, and teaches anything from crafts to profound life skills. His rich experiential background includes presently working professionally with At Risk Teens and offering "Gray Wolf intense weeks" at major Dude Ranches as a Living Historian with his 1850's correct Cheyenne tipi home/museum. As one would guess he excels at engaging communication for all ages.

So, now with that brief introduction let me say, we can simply provide you safe space to come nurture in the atmosphere, or offer increasing degrees of engagement  with who we are and what we have to offer up to a full-on personalized retreat extraordinaire. With us you will enjoy a one-of-a-kind experience, where we can offer stand alone state-of-the-art wholistic health options or stand alone Native American skill/wisdom or survival skills, OR, any combination thereof  mixed with ‘good old-fashioned hospitality’.

We offer this in support of helping make the world a healthier/happier/wiser place for us all with the knowing we all benefit from respite and new perspectives from time to time. We offer these classes and stay options it in a sacred way and it is limited to those who can receive it in a sacred way. This is also time sensitive and depends on our availability.
