“Relaxing Resort”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2009

Lakedale Resort on Friday Harbor is one of the nices retreat properities that Ihave been to. The cabins are cozy, well appointed. Our two bedroom cabin accommodate the 3 of us. The gas fireplace warmed the enitre cabin, what a nice way to start the day or end it. Staff very accommodating and egar to help. We dined at Duck Soup Restaurant, another great find. A short walk for the Resort.

I shared a 2 bedroom 2 bath cabin with my mom while attending a knitting retreat hosted by Cat Bordhi (an amazing instructor and person). The staff, accomodations and property were wonderful. A special treat for me was the lack of cell service in that part of the island which meant I had a real vacation except for the time I spent in downtown Friday Harbor (the lodge has wi-fi and tv). I highly recommend you stay here if you want to get away from your every day life and enjoy nature while being pampered.

Though it takes some doing to get to Lakedale Resort, the trip on the ferry is wonderful and then a taxi or car ride through lovely San Juan countryside til only 5 miles outside of passing San Juan Vinyards, and a camel, or all things , you turn into the resort. Our room in the hotel, looked out on a small lake, gorgeous, had a gas fireplace in the room, had a jacuzzi tub and lovely bathroom, with space for 2 peoples toilet articles, a small bar sink and counter with coffee maker and coffee and tea fixings, and small under counter sink.
But the downstairs Great room, with tall ceiling and views of the lake, big deck space was where we spent all of our time and was wonderful.
Within walking distance down the road is the best restaurant on the Island, The Duck Soup Inn, quite tastey, a bit pricey and yet a good value.

I went as part of a knitting retreat for 5 days and the place itself was a highlight. The staff was knowledgable, helpful, welcoming.

I attended a five-day retreat at Lakedale with some friends, and we stayed in one of the log cabins. No problem with the accommodations or facilities, very clean , comfortable and rustically beautiful. Spectacular location. Staff was very, very nice. My only complaints are (1) though it would not have changed my decision to attend the retreat, the resort NEVER disclosed to us that there would not be any maid service (even after many exchanged emails regarding reservations); (2) the stairs in the cabin were INCREDIBLY slippery (varnished split logs) and badly need some non-skid treads installed (one of our party did slip and fall several steps even though extreme caution was being used!) (3) the continental breakfast was great, except for the following: the cook never had enough oatmeal prepared for our group, clean flatware was always in short supply, and no ice for beverages was ever provided. Also, at least one person in our group had notified the resort well in advance that she was lactose intolerant, but there was no non-dairy coffee creamer provided, ever. Little things, perhaps, but they add up to create a less than first-rate impression.

I would recommend this place to friends, but with some caveats.

My stay at Lakedale was wonderful. The location, beside a lake on San Juan Island, is beautiful. The main room in the lodge offeres floor to ceiling (20 feet or so) views of the lake and the gounds. Many rooms are also lake front. My friend and I were fortunate enough to book the 2 bedroom suite with shared living space between the 2 bedrooms as well as a nice covered porch. I recommend the Lakedale to anyone considering a trip to Friday Harbor.

Cat Bordhi's 2009 Knitters Retreat invaded the hotel for a few days. This place is SO awesome! Beautiful inside. Beautiful outside. Convenient to must-see places on the island. So well maintained! And the signature lotion (handsoap,shampoo) is a rich bouquet of fragrance that bonds us to this place! We are smitten. We will be back :))
