ARRIVAL/CHECK-IN: Getting to Cedarbrook Lodge from SEA is a quick 1.6 miles or a 10-minute ride. The hotel offers a shuttle which you can arrange for pick up if you plan accordingly. Reception takes you through a swift check-in process. I arrived quite late, so I had no wait. The lovely guest services representative told me about the amenities around the property, including dining options at Copperleaf Restaurant &Bar.

GUEST QUARTERS: Welcome to your respite from the hectic world. I enjoyed a Deluxe King room on the ground floor during my time in Seattle. The room design accentuates the green spaces surrounding the property; floor- to-ceiling windows with a view of the tall greenery just outside made me feel like I was in some remote, lush forest. You can expect a spacious sanctuary with all the necessary storage for your attire. Whether you’re in your room or walking around the property, you’d never believe you’re just around the corner from the airport.


SERVICES/ AMENITIES: If you enjoy nature, you will love walking around the property. I took a walk after my evening meal — even at night you can enjoy well-lit walking paths. Lodge manager Byron Pihuave took me on a property tour, and I learned the grounds include protected wetlands.

The dining options at Copperleaf Restaurant & Bar focus on regionally available fare. You will even taste select products from small local farms, fishermen, ranchers and artisans, as well as an on-site chef ’s garden which I got to see for myself.

The gym facilities offer state-of-the-art equipment including basic jump ropes, yoga mats and free weights to help you keep to your exercise routine. I enjoyed some time on the rowing machine for my warm-up. Given more time, I would have enjoyed the outdoor hot tub.


  • Dining at Copperleaf Restaurant & Bar is a must-try experience. You will enjoy farm-to-table offerings, from the veggies to the libations. It serves its own whiskey, beer and wine thanks to its local partnerships.
  • The property lies just 14 miles from downtown Seattle
  • Cedarbrook Lodge offers a fantastic space for meetings, events and special occasions like weddings.

Viking Discovers Penguin Discovery

Cruising is always an adventure and, in addition to uncovering new culinary traditions and cultural experiences, lucky guests sometimes get to witness actual scientific discoveries. During a recent sailing of Viking Octantis to the waters of the Antarctic, Viking’s onboard expedition team participated in the discovery of a new colony of chinstrap penguins, identifiable partly by a distinctive facial marking that resembles a strap running beneath their beak from one side of their face to the other, as though holding down a hat.
