Reviewed 28 September 2013

My wife and I stayed a night and had a fantastic stay. We arrived late and had a little trouble finding the resort in the dark as the signs switch between Port Ludlow Resort and Port Ludlow Inn which caused a small confusion. Add to it that our GPS lead us to a trailer park just up the road. However we check in smoothly, if late. The room we stayed in was nicely remodeled and had a large jacuzzi bath that operated well but was a bit noisy while running. The room was clean, well stocked, and very comfortable with a nice view of the harbor. The staff was excellent and friendly! The next morning we breakfast at the restaurant and I can honestly say I had the best biscuits and gravy I have ever eaten in my life! I highly recommend them to fuel a day of sight seeing!

Thank you for your recent review. We apologize for the confusion upon arrival - and appreciate that you pointed this out. We are in the process of updating/renovating all of our signage throughout the community and this adds to the importance of this need. We will also review the GPS concern - and really appreciate that you shared this with us. Our team strives to ensure a comfortable and refreshing visit and so we are delighted to learn that this was your experience. And, oh my yes - the Biscuits & Gravy wins positive commentary from our guests on a regular basis....so happy you enjoyed them! We look forward to seeing you again soon - thanks so much for making the time to share your impressions.

Wow, my first impression of The Resort at Port Ludlow was Peaceful, Serene, Tranquil, and Gorgeous! It felt worlds away from the bustling Seattle suburbs, and yet it is only a 10 minute drive from the Kingston ferry terminal.

The resort is nestled next to the Port Ludlow Yacht club and the marina. We were there for a company party, and every employee received a waterfront facing room. WOW! The rooms were phenomenal with fabulous views, a gorgeous jacuzzi tub with french windows opening onto the room, a fireplace, and a deck overlooking the marina. I wish I could move into this room it is that beautiful!

The staff were fantastic with our group, making sure the food and drinks never ran out. Would like to give a special "thank you" to Steven who really went above & beyond for everybody to make sure we had a wonderful time.

There is a totem pole a short walk from the resort which is worth going to see. There's a small convenience store down the path past the Yacht Club.

I highly recommend this resort if you want to get away from it all. Very beautiful little gem in Washington state and hope to go back again one day!

Room Tip: All of the water-facing rooms have fantastic views!

WOW! Thanks so much for your very kind and thorough review. We are delighted that you enjoyed your visit while here for group business. We don't currently have any "permanent residents" though we are excited by the prospect of one moving in! Thank you for the special recognition of our team member, Steven. Your words mean a lot and are the highest form of praise. A note about the totem pole, this was a gift from the community and tells a very interesting story about Port Ludlow....we are honored to have it as a welcoming part of our community. We do hope you'll find your way here again for another visit - whether with business or personally. We are very appreiciative that you made the time to share your impressions. Thanks again.

Thank you so much for this kind review. We are so happy when "highly recommended" and those expectations are fulfilled (or perhaps, exceeded.) Boating in is a favored sense of arrival - and we love having our marina full of happy guests. Breakfast is pretty awesome here - whether it's the French Toast, the homemade granola, or some eggs from Finnriver Farms....We look forward to your return visit and again, thanks so much for the favorable commentary.

We bought an aution item that included one-night's stay and a round of golf outside prime season. Fortunately, an indian summer provided us a fantastic late-season weekend taking our boat from Lake Washington. One night at anchor, followed by a round of golf and a relaxing ocean view room with great food and pleasant staff will have us going back again.

P.S. Thanks to grandma for caring for the child & dog for us.

Thank you for your recent review. Yours is the perfect scenario - boat in, play golf, stay in one of our rooms at the Inn, enjoy the food and beverage - and all at the benefit of a non-profit auction! That's what we call a win-win-win.....the organization, you for the experience and we for the exposure to new fans. We are delighted and look forward to your return visit.

Clean, spacious rooms. Comfortable beds. Beautiful views. Gracious and friendly staff. A beautiful 30 minute country drive from Port Townsend with a nice restaurant in the hotel. Port Ludlow is a picturesque, quiet harbor community. A short ferry ride from Seattle and another 30 minutes by car. Great for a weekend getaway from the hustle of the city.

Thank you for this kind review. You captured what we are very well - and with precision. We especially appreciate your note about the clean rooms and comfy beds - what is an Inn without those two amenities? And that you were delighted by our team. Thanks again and we look forward to your return visit.

If you are looking for peaceful setting for an organization retreat, this is the place. There were 30 Rotarians putting together our goals for the next few years and the setting couldn't have been better. Peaceful, great walking, and contemplative. The food was very good and the rooms were very spa feeling.

While rain precluded us from playing golf on this stay, the room was wonderful. We were on the second floor with a balcony, with a view of the marina. The staff were very pleasant and ready with information, and the stay included a complimentary bottle of wine for my birthday. I've stayed here before, can say that this time it was even better, and I will stay here again. It is a premier Pacific Northwest establishment. I did not rate the swimming pool or fitness center because we didn't use them. While we did not eat dinner, the breakfast was excellent. Overall, I give it five stars for sure!! And then some ...

Thank you for your enthusiastic review. We are delighted that you chose to celebrate your birthday with us - and though Mother Nature did not cooperate, it sounds like you were able to enjoy the beauty of the retreat anyway. We do not have a fitness center nor a pool - so no worries on not rating those...we simply refer to the great outdoors as our place to "play" and exercise. We are thrilled with your definition as a premier Pacific Northwest establishment - and take great joy in sharing this impression with our team. We promise to continue striving for this high bar and look forward to your next visit so we can continue to pamper you. Please don't wait for another birthday to come around - rather take advantage and join us again sooner. Again, thanks so much for making the time to share your impressions. We really appreciate it!
