Share Article

Hood Canal’s artistic culture and cuisine take the stage in celebrating Alderbrook Resort & Spa’s Centennial Year throughout September.

Alderbrook Resort & Spa

Since its founding, Alderbrook Resort & Spa quickly became the destination of choice for those in search of relaxing and rejuvenating Washington State vacations. Although guests in decades past had to cruise by way of water to reach the Resort, this waterfront destination continues to be a favored destination thanks to the same invigorating culture that once brought hundreds of patrons via steamships every weekend during the high season. To this day, the Pacific Northwest Resort stays true to its roots by boasting amenities and activities as unique and refreshing as the Hood Canal itself.

Throughout September, this NW resort, located just two hours from Seattle and two-and-a-half hours from Portland, invites guests to explore the Resort’s rich culture through activities catered to families, couples and individuals alike.
