Happenings at the Resort ~ September 2021
Hello Friends of Port Ludlow Resort,
As we say good bye to August, it feels like the summer has flown by. I hope that you have enjoyed the longer days. We wish we could say goodbye to COVID, however as we all continue to deal with health and safety challenges, I have to mention how grateful we are for all of you that have supported us. I take great pride in providing our guests a comfortable and relaxing space for respite in a natural rural environment, as well as offering some of the greatest food on the Peninsula, sourced locally from our artisans, farmers and fish mongers. Thank you all, we will continue to strive to exceed your expectations in the future. 
With the upcoming Labor Day holiday approaching, I also want to recognize how proud I am of each and every one of our staff members. Without these fine folks, we could never achieve our goals of providing the warm and welcoming hospitality that our guests have come to expect. They have managed to thrive even with labor shortages, supply chain challenges, and a world wanting it to be the old way.
This year, more than any other has been particularly challenging for recruiting and training new staff members, so often times we have been shorthanded and in these cases our staff picked up the slack and did everything they could to take care of as many of you as they could. I am grateful for each and every one of them.
On your next visit, please share your appreciation with our staff on what a good job they’re doing.
Dan Ratigan
General Manager

Transformation on the Water Retreat
A 3-day Health, Wellness & Mindfulness Retreat
October 9–11, 2021

Our Transformation on the Water weekend retreat is designed to help you relax, recharge and get inspired!

This retreat is limited to a small intimate group (no more than 25 participants) for maximum impact to attendees.

Participate in daily workshops focused on goal setting, personal reflection, mindfulness, stress busting and steps to living longer.
Are you interested in participating in the retreat?
Yes, but not right now.. Maybe at a later date.
Push your big-picture thinking to develop a strategic plan for your life. Define what is it that you want to achieve, the timeframe in which you want to achieve it, the current probability that it will be achieved and the steps necessary to make it a reality. Apply this process so that you will have lifelong skill to overcome an obstacle and formulate a plan to achieve whatever you desire.

Thinking about 2022...
We just completed our first meeting under the outdoor tent. If you're already planning your 2022 and want a outdoor meeting venue, we'll have the tent up from May to September. Bring your group together in a spectacular Pacific Northwest setting only Port Ludlow offers. 

Group rates and Meeting Packages available to help make the planning easy.
