Kingston House is rolling lawns, gardens, woods and a grand mid-century home of douglas-fir and stone. Neither pretentious nor rustic, it is a quintessential Pacific Northwest setting for your celebration or weekend getaway. We would love to host you here.

Lavender

The Farm

The Kingston House grounds include a working lavender farm. Our over 2,000 plants represent a dozen different varieties.

The Kitsap and Olympic peninsulas boast an ideal climate for growing lavender. Nearby Sequim is known as the lavender capital of North America. Every year is a little different, but our lavender reaches peak-blooming in early-to-mid July. The English varieties (Lavandula angustifolia) bloom first, followed by the hybrids (Lavandula x intermedia). Unharvested flowers remain attractive through early September.

The Company

In 2017, two of our Kingston High School student employees - Brennan Jacobson and Danny Horwitz - launched a line of personal care products made from Kingston House lavender. Sold at the Kingston Farmers Market and at Thistle Floral & Home, their 'Kingston Lavender Company' product line included plants, soap, candles, sachets and floral mist.

Lavender Festival

In 2016, Kingston House hosted our first Kingston Lavender Festival. Over 600 of our friends and neighbors enjoyed u-cut lavender, live music and food trucks. In 2019, we we will welcome folks back for our 3rd festival.

In 2017, we introduced the 'Summer Soirée,' a farm-to-table dinner in the midst of the lavender field. Catered by Chef Sunshine Catering and featuring food and wine from Kitsap-area farmers and vintners, the festive event was enjoyed by all!
