5. Lakedale Resort
Step into the spacious log-beamed lobby of Lakedale Resort and feel the stress melt away — you’re officially on island time. Clustered around three spring-fed lakes about four miles from the San Juan Island ferry dock, Lakedale offers traditional lodge rooms (ages 16 and older only) and two-bedroom cabins, or canvas platform tents as a glamping option. Kids will be blissfully immersed in the great outdoors while swimming, fishing and canoeing on one of the three lakes. It’s like summer camp, but far less rustic.
