Drawing inspiration from the land, sea and air of the Pacific Northwest region in which it’s situated, Alderbrook Resort & Spa announced today it completed the first phase in a full property enhancement: the refresh of its 77 guest rooms.
Alderbrook has enhanced its guest room experience with a sleeker, lighter and brighter design drawing from the colors in and around the picturesque waters of the Hood Canal. The guest rooms within the main building are now home to updated carpeting, lighting, paint colors, linens, upholstery, entertainment centers, wardrobes, amenity decor and larger, high-resolution TVs.

We took the opportunity to soak in the beauty and amenities offered at the resort for a full day yoga retreat this July!
Our participants experienced SUP yoga, aqua yoga and gentle yoga guided meditation by Joonbug Yoga. This is our third year sharing wellness at Alderbrook and we couldn’t be happier! From banquet services to the resort dock crew our guests were showered with support and smiles.
It all started with the very first phone call of excellent customer service that this trip happened. 2 nights, 26 adults, 19 kids, 11 rooms, 1 cottage, 9 pac n play and 1 catered dinner buffet in a private room. Thanks to the entire team at Alderbrook for making this happen, it is now the highlight of our summer 2018 that will be remembered forever. Alderbrook no doubt has the best team to assist you in any event planning with them. Throughout the whole planning process they were extremely responsive and made not even one single mistake despite all the various requests made to accommodate families of different needs. Dinner buffet was exceptional and was replenished constantly. I’ve had various people coming to me telling how surprised they are with regard to the quality of the food. The final invoice and charges all came through as expected, no hidden charge or unexpected surprise. The families are already talking about coming back again next year.
