“A Gem in the woods on the Hood Canal...”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

We often dine at their restaurant but this was our first stay at the resort for a Valentines Day celebration. We had a Canal view room which was exquisite. Beautifully decorated, clean, comfortable and just perfect! I loved the window bench which was comfy, a great place to enjoy a glass of wine, cup of coffee, read or just take a nap.
We had a fabulous dinner in their wine room just off the dinning room. We started with Dungeness Crab Cakes & Steam Hama Hama Clams for an appetizer, followed by an Apple Crisp Salad and the Aldebrook Clam Chowder. YUM...so far so good and we're not done yet!
We proceeded with the most incredible Pan Seared Sea Scallops I have ever had, my husband had the Crab Trio Linguini which he said was good but not as good as my Scallops.
We had all this in about three hours, believe it or not the portions were plentiful, I could have eaten 1/2 my scallops & taken the rest home but they were oh so good I ate them all plus we weren't going home.
Now for desert...an incredible Lemon Tart which we shared, was the perfect way to end the evening.
Holly was our server who was very pleasant and gave us great service. Thank you!!!
The next day we enjoyed their indoor pool and hot spa. Although we didn't experience any of their Spa's services I have gone their for the day before and have had great massages & facials there.

Room Tip: Our room was on the Third floor with a beautiful view & very quiet. They also have cottages whic...

First off we live relatively nearby, my wife had wanted to stay here when we were married 6 years ago. Being as it was so nearby there was no way we were going to spend the money to stay 20 miles away. 6 years later my wife planned our anniversary and we were going to the resort. Before checking in we drove to the golf course and I knew if the resort was anything like the clubhouse we were going to be in for a weekend. We checked in approximately 45 minutes early, we went to our room with King bed and Canal view and were blown away. Super clean and all you could ask for, we decided to go walk the grounds that were immaculate even in late winter. We went to the bar for drinks and dinner, service was top notch and so was the food. The next morning we had breakfast in the restaurant it was also super, we had oatmeal and scones. I am not a fan of either but I loved them both, the scones are made fresh when you order them what a treat. We would definately return in the future.

Room Tip: You can not go wrong with a canal view room. The grounds are nice to view but you can't beat the...

The first time I stayed it was for a work-related purpose and I couldn't wait to go back and take my husband for some romance. Unfortunately, we picked a very loud time of year, with the tree-lighting ceremony and young children around during the holidays. However, it was still a great time. It's a beautiful place to relax. Also, we were able to bring our french bulldog and she got her picture taken on Santa's lap, which was really fun.

Beautiful hotel in a beautiful location. The rooms are comfortable and clean. The restaurant has an excellent menu and the staff is great. I loved the hotel cats that hang around the lobby. I'm looking forward to enjoying the spa on my next visit.

Our families stayed for a long weekend for a business/family vacation. The cottages adjacent to the resort are great and the view and natural environment are gorgeous! My kids and I caught hundreds of fish (all released) right off the docks in front of the resort on Puget sound. The food was unreal and the staff is super friendly. can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: Rooms near the grass, picnic, barbecue area are great for large family gatherings.

The Alderbrook resort sits on highway 106 in Union, on the Hood Canal of the Olympic Penninsula. It consists of a main lodge and cottages. It has all the Northwest comfort, trees, water, and clean air. We had only stayed at the main lodge once in the many times we had stayed here. The jewel of this resort is the cottages. When our kids were young, we'd rent the 2-bedroom cottages, bringing our own food and preparing it daily in the fully-equipped kitchen. Now that our kids are in college, we rent the one-bedroom cottage, just the two of us. We cooked in both the kitchen, and availed ourselves of the outdoor propane BBQ. (There are two). We stay only during off-season or for specials- the on-season prices are too high for this economy. We are on their email list and wait for specials, and if one is good, we go for it. The restaurant is fine, comfortable, and the food is good, but over-priced for what you get. One could find oneself saving at the main lodge for a small room, but easily exceeding the budget for 3 meals a day at the restaurant.

The spa is fantastic; my wife had two treatments spread over two of the three days we stayed there. Unlike the restaurant, the spa prices are competative with other spas out there, and often there are packages that include spa discounts, or sometimes there are spa discounts just because.

Though we were here for pleasure, both of us had a little business; the internet was fast and never "threw us off" like other hotels' internet services have done to us in the past. It was available throughout the cottage wherever we decided to work.

We heartily recommend this resort; though we've stayed only off-season, one can see that there are lots to do on the water in-season, as we walked along the deserted dock and closed boat rental houses- the calm before the summer storm. Their motto is right- "get away without going away". For us it is a mere 37 miles; for Seattlelites the trip is longer, but worth it.

Room Tip: Select the cottages if you don't mind cooking your own meals. Save the restaurant for a special...

The beautiful resort matches the setting. It was my birthday and staff went out of their way to make me feel pampered. It was only a one-night stay but felt like a mini-vacation in the welcoming room, lodge-like buildings, and majestic setting in the woods along the Hood Canal. I loved the window seat! We spent time in the swimming pool and hot tub too. Ah! And the food was also excellent. We had dinner in the contemporary lounge and breakfast in the restaurant by windows overlooking the canal. All in all, a magical time.

Walking hand in hand, you see an eagle soar overhead. You stop to skip stones across the water. Four, five, six skips. A perfect moment suspended in time. A story for dinner. This is the place where memories are made, where families come back year after year. Like having your own waterfront cottage, only better. Cartwheels on the grass. A game of badminton at sunset. Leather couches and a glass of Washington state Syrah. The sweet succulent bite of fresh oysters. Rooms that make you say “wow” when you open the door. Can this hotel be only two hours from Seattle?
