My (now) husband and I eloped this past weekend and I surprised him with a one-night getaway to The Resort at Port Ludlow. Even though it was a short trip, we had a lovely time and the resort staff was so nice to us. We got in pretty late after our elopement ceremony in Tacoma and were famished. The Fireside... More

My husband and I have stayed at the Port Ludlow Inn several times, and each time we have had a truly wonderful experience. Our rooms are clean, quiet and lovely. The beds are cozy and the views are fantastic! The staff is always delightful and helpful. The Fireside Restaurant offers a superb menu - you will not be disappointed!!

my wife and I have come here several times for our anniversary. The Inn is beautiful and well maintained. The corner king room is our favorite. Great views and a fireplace. The onsite restaurant is perfect for a special dinner. The staff is friendly. For those that like to walk trails or play golf that is available.

Happy Anniversary! We are delighted to have had you with us again. You summed up the experience very nicely - and we appreciate that. Though many choose to visit for special occasions, others come "just because..." and we hope that will fit into your schedule in the future as well. Until then, many good wishes for more celebrations. More

My wife and I have stayed here twice, and will stay again. This hidden gem is tranquil and beautiful. Restaurant is great for that special dinner. View is amazing. Perfect place to stay while exploring the small towns of the Olympic Peninsula. Weather during the summer months is spectacular.

What a peaceful beautiful place. I love coming up in the winter when it is quiet. 4 star all the way. The fireside restaurant is beyond compare. The seafood is all fresh...my scallops were flown fresh from the east coast. NOTHING FROZEN. The place is amazing.
