Overview of White Lotus Farm & Inn, Port Ludlow
1. White Lotus Farm & Inn, Port Ludlow
Just over the Hood Canal Bridge on the Olympic Peninsula, White Lotus Farm & Inn sits across 70 acres of flower fields, orchards and "food forest" planted with more than 50 varieties of fruit, nuts and mushrooms. There are also honeybee hives! Owners Niall and Natalie aim to cultivate an edible ecosystem, and give tours and educate guests on the farm’s growing practices. Youngsters get a true taste of where their food comes from, by sampling and gathering the homegrown produce, to helping look for eggs to taking care of the farm’s animals. White Lotus critters include roaming sheep, turkeys and even a resident llama.
Visitors get a one-bedroom suite for four in the main farmhouse, with a private entrance leading out to the communal fire pit and gardens. There’s also a grill and al fresco seating area, where families can prep their own farm-to-table dinners. There’s no TV in the room (yay for unplugged time!), but if you’re craving screen time, the comfy den area does have a TV and DVD player along with games, books and movies.
