On the shores of the Puget Soundís Olympic Peninsula, just a 90-minute drive or 15-minute seaplane ride from Seattle, The Resort at Port Ludlow is a charming oasis. Originally settled by members of the SíKallam Tribe, it was named in 1841 during the first U.S. Navy expedition to map and chart the Puget Sound and Olympic Peninsula.
The resort is well-appointed, with a 37-room boutique waterfront inn, a 300-slip marina, and a championship 18-hole golf course, recognized as a Top Course to Play in 2012 by Golfweek. The resortís intimate suites include gas fireplaces, jetted tubs, and sitting areas. Second- and third-floor balconies provide spectacular views of the Olympic Mountains and Port Ludlow Bay. There are also several cozy common areas, like the lobbyís inglenook, and the Marina Room, where guests can relax with a magazine or engaging board game.
The innís award-winning Fireside Restaurant is aptly named. It features a giant double-sided fireplace, sweeping views of the mountains and bay, and a daily menu that presents the bounty of local farmsí vegetables, produce, artisan meats, and cheeses. Chef Dan Ratigan and his culinary team go beyond "sourcing locally." They work closely with the farmers, fisheries, and foragers to anticipate what their options will be and keep a flexible approach as they create a menu of Northwest fare that celebrates the regionís rich bounty. Beyond offering superb cuts of organically raised local beef and lamb, an abundance of fresh seafood, and produce, the menu boasts a beverage program lauded by the Washington Wine Commission and Wine Spectator. Cellar Master Anne Sackett conducts many fun and educational wine tastings and winemaker dinners at the inn.
