The Alderbrook

Party spaces: Three lawns can be set up for open-air ceremonies and receptions starring a top-notch raw bar, thanks to the Hood Canal’s bounty of oysters. If the weather turns wet, there’s a ballroom full of natural light that guarantees gorgeous water views. If you want to be even closer to the Sound, the Lady Alderbrook, a 54-foot cruise boat, has a spacious upper deck for a floating reception. For small gatherings, private guesthouses near the golf course make charming spots for bridesmaids lunches and rehearsals.

For guests on a budget: The Robin Hood Village resort is just three minutes away; cabins and motel rooms at the Waterfront at Potlatch, a ten-mile drive, are basic but bargain-priced. 

One more thing: Although summer can mean two to three weddings per weekend, the resort can be yours and yours alone.
