By: Lauren Nowack

Quiet lapping of waves on the shore, the laughing of children playing a game of badminton, and the majestic Olympic Mountain range towering over you – these are the priceless elements that a stay at Alderbrook Resort and Spa can deliver.  Whether you are enjoying these things after your massage or before your delectable dinner, you will be treated with the utmost hospitality. Nestled two hours between Seattle and Portland, there are a multitude of reasons why you should make Alderbrook your family’s vacation destination for years to come.

One: Nestled in Nature

Placed right on the edge of the sparkling Hood Canal in the Olympic Peninsula of Washington awaits Alderbrook Resort and Spa. Cradled by the Olympic mountain range, you can enjoy your days alongside eagles, osprey, and those you love. Alderbrook has everything guests could desire to make their days both relaxing and rejuvenating, like taking a boat or kayak out on the water to paddle into the sunset. If guests prefer not to do the paddling themselves, the resort offers cruises aboard the Lady Alderbrook or private yacht rentals.

For guests who enjoy keeping their feet firmly planted on land, there are over five miles of hiking trails on property to enjoy. For those looking for more, Alderbrook is less than an hour drive from Olympic National Forest. All of this, in addition to the yard games, fire pits, and beaches to stroll, awaits guests at Alderbrook.

Two: Get Pampered at the Spa

When it comes to rejuvenating at Alderbrook, we’ve only just skimmed the surface. The Spa is available to pamper guests with personalized massages, oil treatments, exfoliation, and hot stones. Whether it is a deep tissue ache or dry, cracked feet that need soothing, the Spa is sure to please. Guests are also able to take advantage of the kitchen being nearby with fresh ingredients brought right to the Spa! Whether looking for a a fresh smoothie, beet salad, or Olympic mountain sorbet, something delicious is always available.

Three: A New Chef

Don’t forget that spectacular food and delectable wine is a staple at Alderbrook Resort and Spa! With seafood dishes crafted each day, fresh out of the Puget Sound, the new Executive Chef Ben Jones will dazzle your taste buds. The Restaurant’s fresh artisanal produce and local dairy add the winning touch to their dishes. What better way to share a meal with your travel companion than fresh flavors paired with a glass of wine? The Pacific Northwest boasts some of the world’s finest wine and Alderbrook has curated a collection of tried and true favorites. The resort invites guests to come to Alderbrook, sit back and enjoy culinary excellence.

Four: Explore Your Creative Side

The attention to detail and encouragement to rest, rejuvenate and explore is what keeps the resort’s guests coming back year after year. Each of the guest rooms has a complimentary sketchbook and drawing pencils for guests to jot down their memories or sketch the sun setting on the water.  Guests are invited to dive into creativity and join a watercolor painting class on the waterfront during warmer months or simply admire different art shows and displays rotating through the lobby and gift shop. At Alderbrook, the dedicated team is not only devoted to your relaxation, but also the pursuit of things that make you feel alive.

Five: 2018 Room Refresh

Like a fine wine, the resort’s rooms get better with time. That may sound strange, but the staff continues to learn more and more about the little things that make your stay special. In 2018, Alderbrook is giving 77 of its guest rooms a refresh complete with sophisticated paint choices, luxurious new linens, soft carpets, and updated technology at your fingertips. 

Six: Spectacular Events

The team loves to foster community at Alderbrook. On the third Thursday of each month, the resort hosts a Canal Cookout prepared by the new Executive Chef, which gives him a chance to showcase the best local flavors and ingredients while guests and community members enjoy an evening at the marina.

Alderbrook celebrates the beauty of the marina year-round during other celebrations, including Oyster Month in April and St. Paddle’s Day in March. For guests who prefer a more secluded evening outside, the Outdoor Patio Seating opens for the season in May and brings fresh air and fresh food together for the ultimate dining experience.

Seven: A Private Escape

Alderbrook provides a quiet and relaxing place for guests to disconnect from the daily routine’s hustle and bustle. For even more seclusion, guests can book one of the property’s sixteen guest cottages that provide a private beach house feel but allow guests to stop by the Restaurant for meals and enjoy on-property activities, too! With a gas grill the full kitchen available, guests who choose to say in cottages will enjoy a home away from home. For guests concerned about bringing the whole family along, book one of the resort’s pet-friendly cottages! The resort understands that pets are a special part of life, and wants guests to be able to relax with them, too.

Whether you are looking for the perfect sunset, a lavish bed, or decadent dining, Alderbrook is the place to be. Whether you want a full day of soaking up the sun, book in hand, or exploring the great outdoors, the staff at Alderbrook is there to serve.  Come and learn more about the reasons why so many couples and families choose Alderbrook to reconnect and refresh and book a stay with us this spring!
