Washington State’s scenic Hood Canal cuts a fjord between two peninsulas in the northwestern part of the state. The area is renowned for its shellfishing and proximity to great hikes in Olympic National Park, but much of the real estate seems taken up by private vacation homes.


Luckily for visitors, there’s Alderbrook Resort & Spa, a waterfront hotel built in 1913. The rustic lodge feels at once impressive, with soaring ceilings and sweeping views, and cozy, with big fireplaces and two cats roaming the lobby.


Aim for a guestroom overlooking the canal, where you’ll catch rainbows in between storms and views of the nearby Olympic Mountains, all from the comfort of your private balcony or fireside seating area.


Regardless of where you lay your head, make time for a soak in the indoor hot tub and heated pool, which also overlooks the canal. Savor a massage and a walk in the mushroom- and moss-filled forests behind the lodge.


At the on-site restaurant, feast on locally-focused cuisine from talented chef Josh Delgado, including oysters plucked from the beach just steps away from the restaurant. Save time for a kayaking trip or sailing excursion, all of which leave from the dock outside the restaurant.

Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.
