Lakedale Resort at Three Lakes
What We Love
- Tons of outdoor activities, including swimming, boating, fishing, volleyball and more
- Return to summer camp with birdhouse-making classes, tie-dye parties and an afternoon sundae bar
- Log cabins provide a getaway from the getaway, with cedar furnishings and plenty of cozy amenities
What To Know
- No on-site restaurant, and the town of Friday Harbor is a 15-minute drive away
- Travel to San Juan Island requires taking a ferry that doesn’t take reservations and can have a three-to-four-hour wait during summer. First boat and midday are the best times to travel
- Children 15 and under are not permitted in the Deluxe Lodge Rooms
- Free WiFi
- Handicap Accessible
- Parking On Site
Modern rustic. Think exposed timber cabins layered with Hudson Bay blankets, sculpted iron lamps and knotty pine bedframes. The Lake House features an open floor plan with blond hardwood floors, a full covered porch and windows that fill the top half of the A-frame roof.
Bed & Bath
Lodge bedrooms have high wood plank ceilings and large fireplaces. All rooms have either patios or decks with rocking chairs for taking in the lake or woodland views. Spacious bathrooms have stone floors and jetted deep soaking tubs framed in cedar. Families and guests who want more privacy can choose between the six two-bedroom log cabins, which have full kitchens, dining nooks and large decks, or the three-bedroom Lake House, which has a sleeping loft, a wood-burning fireplace, a full kitchen, a dining room and an outdoor firepit.
The San Juan Islands sit in the area’s coveted “rain shadow,” so guests often have blue skies when the mainland is cloudy. It’s ideal weather for relaxing on the deck overlooking Neva Lake, one of three lakes on the property, or for romping about on foot or bicycle. You won’t find a spa or restaurant on-site, though Friday Harbor, the largest village in the San Juan Islands, offers a variety of excellent options.
In the Area
The San Juans offer the perfect Pacific Northwest escape: think cedar forests, rocky tide pools and orca pods. If you wish to “go deep,” Friday Harbor provides plenty of kayaking, whale-watching and salmon-fishing outfitters. The Whale Museum and Friday Harbor Laboratories offer further insights into the archipelago’s ecological diversity. Most restaurants offer Northwest island fare, such as grilled cedar plank salmon, Dungeness crab salads and sumptuous seafood chowders. The Bluff and Coho restaurants stand out for dinner, Market Chef for lunch and Bakery San Juan for warm treats in between.
How to Get There
I was so pleased with our stay at Lakedale Resort. We camped rather than staying in one of the tent cabins or the resort. The sites were wonderful, no mosquitoes, and you could borrow resort bikes to ride around the property. The best part was the staff at the General Store, in particular Nicole. She went above and beyond helping our family out. Highly recommend this lovely place!
What an amazing and beautiful place to stay - it was even more beautiful in person than online
The staff was amazing and the log cabin was awesome. I would highly recommend renting the log cabin - it was a great trip.
We had initially booked a hotel in Friday harbor but I stumbled across the Lakedale website at the last moment, and I'm glad I did. I canceled our hotel reservations and booked a room in the lodge. We were so satisfied with our stay. The lodge was cozy, clean, and had an awesome view. Everyone that worked there was super friendly and genuinely happy. Awesome place that I will stay at again!!!
An incredible place in a beautiful setting. Think On Golden Pond! We were lucky to have the place to ourselves for two days!! The weather was perfect and staff wonderful. Our room was fantastic with a view of the lake. We went during low season and enjoyed the peace and quiet. Seems like a place that would get very busy during the summer, but with many activities for both young and old.
What a wonderful and beautiful getaway.
Mary Ann and Carl were fantastic and extremely helpful.
The grounds had so much to offer. Games, boating, hiking, fishing, biking and more.
