In northern Washington state, around 90 minutes north of Seattle and less than an hour south of Vancouver, the Semiahmoo Resort, Golf and Spa has been a waterfront destination for family breaks, outdoor escapes, golf retreats and weddings since 1987. Given a tip-to-toe renovation in 2015, the Classic and Waterview guestrooms retain their wood cabin design accents (wood headboards and trim, heavy stone fireplaces in some rooms), but now they have a more modern, muted color scheme, updated furnishings and flat-screen TVs, as well as tea- and coffeemakers, mini-fridges and ESA products in the bathrooms. Waterview Rooms have private balconies, patios or fireplaces and views across Semiahmoo Bay of White Rock, British Columbia. Days here are spent exploring the resort’s 300 tideland acres on walking, climbing, rollerblading, kayaking, clamming or kite-flying adventures, so guests fuel up early at Pierside Kitchen, the resort’s harborside all-day restaurant. Open throughout the week for breakfast and a buffet lunch, and on weekends for dinner, the restaurant focuses on local and regional ingredients and classic Northwest dishes. In warm weather snag a table on the patio overlooking Drayton Harbor. For golf lovers, Semiahmoo is home to two 18-hole resorts, Semiahmoo Golf & Country Club and Loomis Trail Golf Club, and there’s a world class spa for post-links relaxation.
In the Area
Take the ferry across Drayton Harbor on the Plover, America’s oldest passenger foot passenger ferry, or get a dose of culture at the Drayton Harbor Maritime Museum (open from Memorial Day to Labor Day) and learn about Semiahmoo’s fish canning history. Ski lovers can hit the slopes on Mount Baker (around 50 miles away), and roadtrippers shouldn’t miss a spin on Chuckanut Drive, a scenic 20-mile drive through Skagit and Whatcom counties.
How to Get There
This resort is one of our favorites; it has everything, beauty, comfortable rooms, great restaurants and plenty of activity options. The staff is always anxious to make your stay a great experience. The Spa is wonderful as is the pool and fitness area.
We loved everything about this upscale, yet casual and friendly resort. Very family friendly. Beautiful views. Great full-service spa. We've been to many resorts and spas around the world, and the Semiahmoo Spa definitely holds it own. It's not glitzy, but it's very comfortable and the massage therapists and aestheticians are excellent. Food ranged from better-than-average to excellent: we had three meals and one happy hour at the resort. We'll definitely be going back.
Beautiful place and large rooms. Beds comfortable, pillows like hay bales. Windows dirty which affects beautiful view. Tree near which added to problem. Very secluded, lots to do on site. We walked alot to get to anything. Don't go to Canada even though it is close. 3 hour wait at border, never do that again.
This resort is outstanding with views that are spectacular. The bird watching is fabulous and walking/ hiking extraordinary. Relaxing and enjoyable and just a short ride to Canada and the amazing little town of White Rock with its great restaurants and waterfront walk. We will be back many times
My wife and I wanted to get away and recharge, but, due to the crazy noice in the room we spent two sleepless nights at the resort. I will probably give this resort another chance at some point in the future depending on how fast I will forget my recent experience.
