How to get there

Driving directions from Seattle

Stay on the continuation that becomes Avondale Road.

Go to the end. Avondale hits a T in the road; that road is called the Woodinville / Duval Road. Make a right-hand turn.

There's a signal light and a small mall in front of you. Continue till you get to the third signal light which is 212th. Here turn right.

Go to the next intersection and turn left; you will then be on 165. After that, go straight.

In front of you, the road will curve to the right. Once it has curved, it will then be 216 Avenu. N.E.

Immediately, look on the left for a white sign with a light shining on it and for a long gravel drive way, with a street sign that reads "REMY WAY". There is also a green mailbox with the number 16400 on it. There is also a hanging sign with a capital A for auberge. You can see many solar lights along the gravel drive way with Lavender plantings. The property has a bright green metal roof that you can't miss.

Drive around to the front. At night, lights will be on all over the building, driveway and up in Edge of Seattles wedding garden area. If you see 164 Street, it means that you have gone too far.
