Lakedale is a resort on San Juan Island that is so much more. Situated on 82 wooded acres with three spring-water lakes, the property is nestled between Roche Harbor and Friday Harbor on San Juan Island in Washington state. It is easily accessible by ferry or plane. With tons of activities for people of all ages, it’s the ideal destination for vacations, meetings and retreats, weddings, and other events. With multiple types of accommodations: an adults-only Lodge, family-and-dog-friendly campsites, glamp-worthy Canvas Cabins and Cottages, as well as a newly-opened Yurt Village, Lakedale is the perfect place for every type of traveler!
Our photo galleries give you a glimpse into life at Lakedale, a hotel, resort, and campground on San Juan Island. Sneak a peek at our accommodations, from our glamping yurts and cabins to our newly remodeled deluxe lodge rooms. Picture yourself paddling an Aquacycle on one of our three lakes, or catching a trout for dinner and cooking it over your campfire. Create tie-dye t-shirts with the kids and walk over to the General Store for ice cream. Insert yourself…prepare for fun!
The property map is a great way to familiarize yourself with our San Juan Island resort. Lakedale is comprised of three lakes originating from natural springs at the north end of the property and flowing in a large circle around the peninsula of land where our lodging and activities live. Although you won’t be able to select specific units from the map, you will be able to visualize where each accommodation type is located including our lodge rooms, yurts, campsites, glamping village, and more.
Remember riding your bike to the store as a kid and spending your allowance on candy? The Lakedale General Store is that country store you remember as a kid – a throwback with a modern nod to necessities you may need for your stay with us. Located conveniently near our San Juan Island hotel rooms and campsites, we stock beer, wine, apparel, camping gear, ice cream, groceries, along with grab-and-go items and made-to-order espresso drinks. And unusual things you never knew you needed. Open seasonally from April through October, the store is the hub for Lakedale activities, renting fishing gear and stocking up on ice and firewood.
One day our crack team here at Lakedale decided we needed a way to share critical, urgent, and entertaining issues with our guests. Essential things like whale watching on San Juan island. Exploring the San Juan Islands on a family camping getaway. Where to go on a day trip to Orcas Island from Friday Harbor. We delve into the weighty topic of the most pet-friendly places to take your dog on San Juan Island. We even accept requests from guests on subjects they’d like to learn about the Pacific Northwest. And then we wrap them all up in our bi-monthly blog posts. Enjoy!
Getting to an island destination is a little different than hopping in your car and driving down the freeway to a hotel. We like to think getting to our San Juan Island resort is a whole lot more fun.
