The Fabric Patch


Gate 17 Retreat Center

410 1st Ave NE Soap Lake, WA 98851

This beautiful facility was designed by a quilter! Great views and lots of light in this huge work space perfect for quilters and scrapbookers!  

Located directly across the street from the East Beach, the large 2000 sq ft Retreat Center is detached and just a few steps from the 1906 Bungalows and 2019 new-build Condos. The spacious, open room features many extras (see descriptions and pictures below) and is set up to personally accommodate your groups size and unique needs. We offer classes, local tours/hikes and historical information if desired. We have a separate massage bungalow available upon request (our local massage therapist has 23 years experience).

Unique local amenities in this eclectic little town include fantastic ethnic restaurants, live theater, coffee shops, bike rental and large super market… all within two blocks of the facility. The historic healing lake is perfect for treating all skin ailments and arthritis; but best of all... the quilt shop is only 4 miles away!

Retreat Condos

 The condos were built in 2019 to accommodate the desire to retreat in unmatched comfort. No bunk beds, no cramped sleeping quarters and only one person to share your bathroom. Each one of the four condos has the same open floor plan, but has individualized distinct decor. Each is two bedroom, two bathroom with a fully equipped kitchen, four seat dining room and comfortable living room.

Each one has a 60" smart TV, DVD and Roku; fully adjustable thermostat and password protected high speed internet.
The beds are all Serta posturpedic pillow top mattresses with soft bamboo sheets and plush towels. There are 54 handmade quilts to use and enjoy throughout the property. The lot has 15 off street parking spaces and 12 outdoor security cameras and motion lights

Historic Bungalows

The bungalows were originally built during the height of Soap Lake's tourist activity back in 1906. Plumbing was added in 1935, the kitchens were remodeled in 1970 and all four received a complete refurbishing in 2016, with much of the original charm left intact. All three are private and comfortable, with unique decor, comfortable beds, high quality bedding, plush towels and even kitchen needs. See descriptions and photos below.
