Earthbox Inn & Spa

Try these amazing tips from our Spa Director Rachael to help you create glowing, healthy skin this Summer:

1)         Brighten and lift your eyes with an eye brow shaping. 

Eyebrows are one of your most important facial features! Shaping them can lift your eyes, narrow or widen your face, and make you look younger, lighter and more relaxed. Are you familiar with Sugaring, the old Egyptian technique of hair removal?  Check it out! Less painful and more permanent than waxing. Available at the Spa at Earthbox.

2)         Renew your Skin with a Full Body Exfoliation

The removal of dead skin speeds up the body’s skin renewal process, helps smooth fine lines and wrinkles and ease discoloration. Remove the dead skin of Winter with a full body exfoliation treatment.  Our glorious skin polishing mixture used in the body treatments at our on-site day spa (The Spa at Earthbox), will moisturize you from head to toe, leaving your skin feeling soft and renewed; your body invigorated.Read More »

Mother and Daughter on a San Juan Island Getaway


“The art of mothering is teaching the art of living to children” ~ Elaine Heffner

The relationship between a mother and a daughter is probably one of the most complex. We love one another unconditionally, yet nobody can irritate us quite like each other. We never wanted to be like our Mom, yet at times, it’s her voice we hear when we speak. We are terrified for our daughter, yet we did the exact same things when we were her age. And deep down we both know that we don’t have unlimited time. Let’s get away together and play! The pristine beauty of San Juan Island is the perfect place to celebrate and nourish our unique relationship.
