It's a breathtakingly beautiful morning on the shores of Lake Washington at the 100 room Woodmark Hotel. Standing on the balcony of your Woodmark guest room, you watch the water gently lap the shore. Breakfast and the day's paper have just arrived. But there's no need to rush. You're only minutes from downtown Bellevue and Seattle. Close to everything you need, but far from the everyday. It's like having your own in-town lakeside retreat. Later, after a day of meetings or shopping, you savor a meal at one of our two lakeside restaurants, Beach Caf? and bin on the lake. Toast with newfound friends over a bottle of wine as the sun sets on the lake in a golden glow. Welcome to the Woodmark Hotel, Yacht Club & Spa.
