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
Great location, lots of activity options, but the resort needs a little TLC and attention to detail. Large room, but lots of empty shelves, no wine glasses and a broken screen. Ask for Susan at Packers, she is fun, upbeat and such an asset.
Recently had a lovely weekend here at Semiahmoo Resort, we live in Seattle and it was our first time here, we really enjoyed it. Perfect local getaway from the city. The staff was wonderful, the rooms were clean and comfortable. We didn't get a water view, but we didn't select that option, next time! We ate in the restaurant which had a nice breakfast buffet. We also tried the bar which was also good. They also have a coffee shop that has limited hours. We lucked out with a sunny weekend in March, so we had a wonderful sunset, one of the highlights of staying here. They had a pool we didn't try, but lots of people were swimming. We enjoyed walking the beach and drove over to Blaine and walked around their downtown area. Overall a nice weekend. Will definitely return. Thanks!
Our family always has such a fun time at this resort. We stayed here for Easter before and it was absolutely fantastic! They had a wonderful brunch, Easter egg hunt and even brought in a small petting zoo. Dinners here are also very good. The pool are is very nice but can get crowded on a nice weekend. Miles of walking and beautiful views make it one of our favorites!
It was a nice place to stay, however it could use a facelift. Room service would also be a nice addition or a quality restaurant given the location. The beds were wonderful and it was nice that the property was pet friendly.
1st stay at Semiahmoo resort and fell in love with it immediately. Great location that offers comfort and relaxation! Very impressed with the many thoughtful resort activities and amenities. Great restaurants and friendly employees that go above and beyond Perfect weekend getaway. Thank you!
