Located alongside the pristine beauty of Hood Canal in Union, Washington, Alderbrook Resort and Spa is a luxurious destination that embraces its location and history. Since 1913 families have been vacationing at Alderbrook for generations, enjoying resort amenities alongside opportunities to explore the unspoiled nature of this part of the Puget Sound. Alderbrook is family-friendly, yet private and secluded for those rare parent-only retreats.

The holiday season is extra-special at Alderbrook Resort and Spa, with decorations and events that would put a smile on Scrooge. The pastry chef of this resort has built a huge gingerbread house in the lobby, beautiful decorations and lights accent the property, and festive events like cruises and photos with the jolly man himself fill the calendar. You don’t have to be a hotel guest to enjoy Alderbrook over the holidays, but you’ll want to be! Reservations are suggested.

Family Photos with Santa Claus

Beginning the weekend after Thanksgiving, Santa Claus will be at the resort each Saturday and Sunday to ring in the holiday season with family friendly activities. Every Saturday and Sunday from Nov. 29 until Dec. 21, guests and non-guests are invited to take photos with Santa Claus from 11:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m., with suggested donations for the photos going to a local charity.
