Rest, Relax and Savor at Cedarbrook

cedarbrook1The magic of the Pacific Northwest is palpable in the natural setting of Cedarbrook Lodge. Located on 18 acres of naturally restored wetlands, the property is an ideal site for business or pleasure in a lodge setting. And it’s all less than five minutes from Sea-Tac Airport.

Guest rooms are well-appointed and spacious and each one provides views of the property’s trees and foliage. The property is spread out to allow for plenty of leisurely strolls while enjoying the natural setting and other amenities.

Speaking of amenities, you won’t want to miss the oasis that is The Spa at Cedarbrook, which focuses on a pure plant-based experience. In fact, the spa’s relaxing and rejuvenating rosemary-infused treatments are carried out with rosemary that is harvested on the property.

This spring the spa offers services to rest and rejuvenate a stressed-out mind and weary body along with spring herbs in the bath and salt blending bar. Services include the rosemary mint foot soak, fresh fusion facial using nourishing Farmaesthetics, organic herbal massage, and rejuvenating herbal wraps and body scrubs. Says Spa Director Joan Higdon, “We want our guests to walk away with a greater sense of self and couples to have a deeper connection.”

According to Chef Mark Bodinet, the restaurant uses sustainable practices and has developed relationships with growers, ranchers, fishermen and local artisans to bring the best ingredients to the table. “Our cuisine is seasonal and possesses a strong artistic expression,” he says.

Among the restaurant’s savory starters is “Foraged and Found” Matsutake Mushrooms with a soft poached duck egg, creamed spinach and salumi lomo. Mouthwatering “large plate” options include Caramelized Diver Scallops with white truffle crème and chanterelle mushrooms, and Lummi Island Poulet Bleu with candied pine nuts and Périgord truffle jus. And why not top off this palate-pleasing experience with the award-winning apple soufflé pancake? This tasty treat beat celebrity chef Bobby Flay in a culinary competition!

Cedarbrook offers the ideal location for a romantic getaway, rest and relaxation, and a top-notch farm-to-table dining experience to savor.
