Steve and I were lucky enough to attend a lakeside event last week at The Woodmark Hotel & Still Spa in Carillon Point. This classic Kirkland mainstay has done an amazing job reimagining its outdoor living space that shows off five custom firepits with surrounding Adirondack chairs on their sweeping waterfront lawn. And don't forget the vino! Clearly, they know us well and have recently launched a wine program to accompany the firepits, which guests will receive information about upon check-in via QR code. Expect to see bottles such as Treveri bubbles, Delille, Betz, and Patterson whites and reds to accompany the disposable fireside wine tumblers. Whether it's summertime views where you are watching the boats, kayaks, paddlers, and sunsets, or wintertime where you can snuggle up under one of their Pendleton blankets and watch the stars, this is an epic location to experience Lake Washington's shoreline. The fire pits are available daily from 6-10 pm (weather permitting).
The Woodmark has also renovated its lobby to represent a luxurious residential comfort where guests can lounge and relax in the color palette that emulates a timeless Pacific Northwest mood. Don't forget about this long-standing lakeside gem the next time you have an event or visitors in town that want to experience the best of Kirkland.
