It is hard to believe that it has now been one year since John and I became married at the Willows Lodge in Woodinville, Washington….and what a wonderful year it has been! With trips to South Africa, St. Martin and Las Vegas and with 2 very busy careers we couldn’t think of a more special spot to celebrate our anniversary than back at the Willows. Nestled centrally in the valley of Woodinville Wine Country, about 30 minutes east of Seattle, the lodge welcomes you with relaxed VIP service from the second you pull into the driveway and ensures that every detail of your stay exceeds your expectations. We were greeted with a lovely glass of wine from a local winery which we sipped next to the welcoming fireplace in the lobby until our room was ready. We watched as another couple was married right where we were one year ago and it brought back all the emotions that come with that very special day!
Our room, like most others at the lodge, was very spacious and featured a fireplace and jetted spa tub…perfect for a romantic night away! We enjoyed happy hour drinks and snacks in the Fireside Cellars lobby bar and then a romantic dinner on the grounds at the Barking Frog restaurant. We chose to stay in but others may enjoy one of the over 20 local wineries, including the world famous Chateau Ste Michelle, within walking distance and the concierge will work with guests to create the perfect tasting trip for them!
We chose to be married at the Willows Lodge because of the gorgeous location and grounds, their ability to make each guest feel special and their attention to detail. This is why we returned for our anniversary, had a wonderful time, and will continue to return for many more happily married years to come!
