Washington State Waterfront Lodges
This time of year our thoughts trail off to cozy weekends in cedar lodges nestled between tall trees and cool salt water. Imagine walking down the dock and greeting a friendly pilot and your own chartered seaplane. Climb in, grab a window seat and your adventure begins. The engine fires up and you glide along the water picking up speed and then you’re off, flying high above your city, catching an amazing view of the snow-capped mountains out ahead of you and the glistening water below. Within 25-40 minutes you’re gliding along the water again and up to the dock of your chosen getaway lodge. There’s a fire crackling in the cozy lobby, an exquisite spa, gourmet meals and fluffy comforters. You’ve arrived. Enjoy your escape.
