The lowdown: Set in a forested nook along Hood Canal on the eastern edge of the Olympic Peninsula, the historic Robin Hood Village Resort was built by Don Beckman, the Hollywood set designer for the original Robin Hood movie. The resort has been providing a laid-back nearby getaway for Puget Sounders since 1934.

The stay: Book one of 16 unique cottages, each one sleeping between two and eight guests. The cottages feature a quirky, old-school vibe. All are equipped with kitchens; many have private hot tubs and firepits. Guests have access to covered gazebos on the waterfront and property, as well as several outdoor barbecues. Three eateries are within walking distance, including the dining room at nearby Alderbrook Resort.

The fun: Hood Canal offers a trove of seafood for harvesting; there’s crabbing, clamming, oyster picking and fishing. Kayaks are free for Robin Hood guests to borrow. Paddle the canal, where you’re very likely to spy a playful splashing seal or a soaring bald eagle overhead; orcas are occasional visitors, too!
