In our short 4 months in Seattle, I have been making it my mission to explore as much of the Pacific North West as possible. This is not a permanent move for us and we do plan on returning home to NC, so I want to make sure and soak up the beauty all around us and visit as many places as possible. I had heart great things about the island of Vashon (specifically The Lodges On Vashon) and knew it needed to be our next getaway.
After a short drive to West Seattle and a quick 20 minute ferry, we had arrived to Vashon! We were greeted with lots of green, stunning water views around every corner, the cutest downtown and lots of friendly faces; we were officially on island time. Things only got better when we arrived to our home away from home for the weekend, The Lodges On Vashon. I first discovered this modern oasis on Instagram and knew I HAD to stay here. Let's just say the lodges exceeded my expectations!
Each one of the lodges is an interior lovers dream! I'm talking straight out of a West Elm catalogue dream. Think cozy king size beds, minimalist decor, gas fireplaces, a fully equipped wet bar and an assortment of games to enjoy. I especially loved that all of the amenities (coffee, soaps etc.) were locally sourced from artisans on the island. If you can ever find a reason to leave your lodge (it might be tough), make sure to venture over to one of the communal spaces. The open air pavilion is a great space to hang out by the fire with friends and relax. We put the games to use and spent lots of hours in the fresh air. I was in love with the swinging chairs and could have sat there all day while the rest of my crew hung out on the lawn. How cute is Cooper attempting to play croquet?
If you have a four legged friend as a part of your family like we do, then you know it can sometimes be a hassle to find hotels that are pet friendly. The Lodges offer several pet-friendly rooms, so just make sure to enquire about this when you are booking. We always love bringing Coop along with us on our adventures. He was definitely a fan of The Lodges.
I cannot say enough good things about our stay at The Lodges. It was the perfect escape from the hustle of city life and definitely a place I can see myself frequenting to relax and slow down. Did I mention it's an Instagram lovers dream! The all white aesthetic is perfection.
