Take a ferry and drive 42 miles north of Seattle to the eastern shore of the Olympic Peninsula and it feels as though you’re in another land, far from city stresses. You’ve reached Port Ludlow, a small inlet where Hood Canal meets Puget Sound. A stay here is by no means roughing it. An intimate, 37-room boutique inn known for impeccable service is now home for however long you’ve booked your stay.
A cozy fireplace, private balcony, water view, fluffy bed and warm craftsman furnishings will make you want to spend your time relaxing in your room. But with the list of outdoor activities available on the property, you’ll easily strike a balance between recreation and rest.
If you’re a golfer, check out the renowned 18-hole championship golf course. Boaters can dock at the 300-slip, full-service marina providing guest and permanent moorage, power boat and kayak rentals and fishing and cruise charters. Go hiking and biking along maintained wooded trails, and afterward relax with an in-room spa treatment.
The Fireside Restaurant offers waterside dining with artfully prepared Pacific Northwest cuisine. Choose a table near the warmth of the fireplace or with a view of the water, marina and the Olympic Mountains beyond. For more information about The Resort at Port Ludlow, visit portludlowresort.com.
