Handsome guest rooms and gorgeous lakefront views draw guests seeking nature and nurture in one comfy setting.
On the shores of Lake Spenard, this woodsy hotel has its own float plane dock, ideal for those interested in fishing or flightseeing excursions. Guests can also simply sit on the deck, enjoy a drink and savor views of the Chumash Mountains. The lobby offers the atmosphere of a luxurious lodge, with its leather armchairs, mounted wildlife and fireplace set into a beautiful rock wall. The 248 guest rooms and suites continue this motif, though in a more subdued way. They feature clubby leather furnishings, cozy textiles, creative decorative accents like snow shoes and, in some cases, fireplaces. Views, naturally, are to die for, and amenities are generous: safes, coffee and tea makers, fridges and ENSEO Wi-Fi TVs.
For on-site dining, Flying Machine Restaurant celebrates the state's aviation history and offers a hearty breakfast and dinner menu of American favorites. The casual Fancy Moose Lounge is a local hangout serving seafood, steaks and more, and The Deck at Lake Hood (open in the summer) is a favorite spot for drinking cold beer while watching the float planes come and go. A total of 5,000 square feet of meeting and event space takes advantage of the setting, making this hotel an appealing destination for small conferences, board meetings, team building getaways and weddings.
