Dedicated to great dining, relaxation, romance, and inspired business meetings, Willows Lodge provides an ideal retreat in the heart of Woodinville, Washington's wine country.
A magnificent ancient cedar snag stands in the entry drive, giving arriving guests their first glimpse of the area’s cedar-farming past. The tribute to this legacy continues throughout the lodge’s buildings and grounds. Douglas fir timbers, fine-grained ash wood, and recycled slate are primary elements, and a photo collection of the valley in its early years hangs in the special function area.
At the same time, Willows Lodge is committed to making its guests comfortable in every modern way. All 77 guest rooms and seven suites feature ultra-contemporary luxuries like bathrooms with soaking tubs that offer clear sight lines to each room’s stone-trimmed fireplace and large flat-screen TV; beds with 300 thread-count Egyptian linens; noiseless refrigerators; and French press coffee systems. A 2,500-square-foot spa and health club offers an exercise room, steam room, outdoor Jacuzzi, and a tempting array of soothing services.
What’s more, Willows Lodge prides itself in serving the Pacific Northwest’s finest cuisine in two award-winning restaurants. Under the direction of Executive Chef Bobby Moore, the Barking Frog restaurant serves American regional cuisine with Pacific Northwest influences in a bistro-like setting. A recipient of the 2011 Wine Spectator Award of Excellence, Barking Frog boasts an innovative wine list, with an emphasis on Washington wines. Next door, The Herbfarm Restaurant, a AAA 5 Diamond Award–winner, offers a nine-course seasonal menu served with six matched wines. There’s also a cozy wine bar, Fireside Cellars, for relaxing over a glass of local wine.
These exciting wining and dining options, along with the beautifully landscaped grounds, make Willows Lodge a perfect place for a meeting, corporate event, or anniversary. With an array of indoor and outdoor venues totaling more than
5,000 square feet, meals catered by Barking Frog, and relaxed Pacific Northwest atmosphere, Willows Lodge delights guests, regardless of their agenda.
