About Alderbrook

Getting Here Grounds Tour

We’re pleased to announce that our 77 guest rooms will undergo a refresh in 2018.  Updates will include paint colors, linens, carpets, upholstery, technology, lighting and storage.  GGLO Design created this concept for our property. 

Our initial phase of the property refresh is slated to be complete by the end of February 2018.  The guest room and group experience will not be disrupted by these updates.  

Future updates to the property will include our cottages, lobby, restaurant and spa.  Please follow us for more details on our property refresh.

Fir & Honey Lollipops

Fir Tip Water
1 cup Fir tips
2 cups water

Instructions
Wash the fir tips and combine with the water in a saucepan. Heat until the water is just about to boil and turn off heat. Cover the saucepan with a lid and let steep until cool.

Once the water is cool, strain out the fir tips. The fir water can be stored covered in the refrigerator for up to one week.

Fir and Honey Lollipops
2 cups sugar
½ cup honey
½ cup light corn syrup
¼ cup fir tip water

Prepare silicone lollipop molds by inserting the lollipop sticks half way into the mold, no cooking spray is necessary. A silicone baking mat can also be used instead. Putting the molds on a baking pan makes them easy to move as they are cooling.

Combine the sugar, honey, light corn syrup, and fir tip water in a heavy bottom saucepan. Be sure not to stir the sugar mixture once it has started cooking, and wipe down any sugar crystals that stick to the side with a wet cooking brush. Insert a candy thermometer and cook until the sugar mixture until it reaches 300°F.

Once the sugar mixture has reached 300°F, remove it from the heat and carefully pour into the silicone molds. The hot sugar mixture should cover above the lollipop stick. After filling half of the molds, rotate the lollipop sticks to ensure they are fully covered. If using a silicone baking mat, pour circles about 1-inch in diameter. Place lollipop sticks into circles once half the sugar mixture has been poured and rotate.

Let the lollipops cool and dry, then wrap individually in packaging.

Alderbrook has been a wedding destination since 1913.  Enjoy this guest blog post by Photographer, Bre Z. and read the full blog post HERE.   

 

Jennifer and David’s beautiful wedding took place at Alderbrook Resort and Spa in the summer, an amazing venue on the waterfront in Union, WA just past Belfair. Their ceremony was outdoors looking over the water out at the mountains, and the reception followed in the ballroom. Everything about this entire wedding was unique and full of love.

I started off taking detail shots of the dress, shoes, tie and rings and went on to photograph the couple separately finishing up getting ready.

It is always so much fun to see how happy and excited the wedding party is to help, and the family to see the couple dressed up for the first time. I think a few definitely held back some tears! We did a first look just outside the walkway to the lobby by the ballroom, and it was the perfect setting. Culture was poured into the events with a Chinese tea ceremony and a money dance, the groom’s father officiated the ceremony, and you could just tell everybody was so close and excited to be there.

The dance floor was full and one of the most fun to photograph this far! Congratulations and thank you so much for trusting me with documenting your day. For future couples, Alderbrook Resort and Spa is a wonderful venue!”

The Raikes family places a deep care for the quality of products and services. From the Nebraska family farm started in 1901, to ownership of northwestern iconic destination Alderbrook Resort & Spa, the Raikes Family Farm welcomes you to their family table. Please follow us as we embark on a culinary journey to tell stories from the Raikes family farm table.

Raikes Beef Co. offers USDA Prime beef that is born, raised, and harvested in Nebraska. We opened the doors to our farm to table beef shop, located in historic downtown Ashland, in May 2017. The Raikes family started their journey west across the United States in the early 1800s and ultimately settled in the Nebraska Territory in 1854. In 1900, Levi Carter Raikes moved to his 160 acre homestead north of Ashland, which still serves as the center of our farming operation today.

 

Our beef is a thoughtfully crafted Japanese Brown Wagyu – Angus hybrid raised on our farm in Ashland, Nebraska. Wagyu means “Japanese cow”, a breed which is genetically predisposed for their intense fat marbling. Our crossbreed, referred to as American Wagyu and American Style Kobe Beef, yield meat that has a higher percentage of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids compared to cattle more commonly found in the US. Our cattle are grass fed, grain finished, and always hormone free. Raikes Farm is involved in every step of the process, bringing high quality beef direct from the source – our farm.

On November 14th, please join us in the Restaurant as the Raikes Family Beef Co. burger, filet and ribeye are presented on our menu.
