A dynamic eco-friendly wilderness retreat only two hours from Seattle.
On the shores of Hood Canal (a glacier-carved fjord) and surrounded by the Olympic Mountains, Alderbrook Resort & Spa first opened in 1913. Its canvas tents of yore have been replaced with luxurious and modern guest rooms and cottages, with a cedar-scented hint of rustic northwest charm. Alderbrook has undertaken several environmentally friendly initiatives, from the property's sparkling spring revitalized as a salmon habitat to the use of all-natural bath amenities and non-toxic housecleaning chemicals. French-trained executive chef Lucas Sautter uses fresh seafood, seasonal produce and local products at the house restaurant. In addition to the spa’s signature massage, which incorporates heated basalt stones, aromatherapy, relaxation and deep tissue techniques, there is an extensive spa and salon service menu. An expert personal trainer offers one-hour sessions with a consultation and guided, personalized workout. And of course, there are countless ways to explore the great outdoors at Alderbrook, beginning with the impressive marina, with non-motorized and motorized boat rentals, docks, sailboats and chartered trips. Hiking is a must in this area, and additional outings include parks, wetlands, beaches, produce markets and gardens.
