Beautifully manicured gardens in Willows Lodge gardens

Beauty comes naturally here

Willows Lodge lives in a constantly evolving, sustainable landscape filled with thousands of plants and trees that thrive naturally in our Pacific Northwest region. With respect for the local environment and community and the spirit of place, we practice sustainable landscaping to create gardens as healthy as they are beautiful.

We’re proud that our gardens are treasured places for our guests and their most important events—from small, informal gatherings to enchanting outdoor weddings.

Willows Lodge was the first hotel in the region to be recognized with a 5-Star EnviroStar award for sustainable landscaping management.

Gazebo Gardens:

These gardens are the coveted location for many Willows weddings, family reunions, and other outdoor celebrations. They’re also a natural gathering place for guests to socialize in the late afternoon with glasses of wine. The Herbfarm’s Kitchen Garden is located here, filled with aromatic herbs and many edible plants.

Fireside Courtyard:

A stone building is hidden in this courtyard, graced by a weeping sequoia and Japanese maple. The building is home to the bronze face of the Killer Whale Spirit, which is set in a granite pool.

In summer, the courtyard is filled with the blooms of jasmine, astilbe and large-leaf hostas.

Spa courtyard with Native American artwork and serene gardens

Spa Courtyard:

This quiet garden offers a contemplative mood. Tall spruce trees surround a pool adorned with bronze heads of Bear Mother and Dog Fish Woman that reflect native peoples. Nestled behind the bamboo fence alongside the courtyard is the Willows Spa Garden. Best viewed from the warm waters of our outdoor relaxation pool, this serene garden includes plantings of ferns, huckleberry, mondo grass, beautiful containers changing with the seasons, and the sound of watering falling over granite.

Riverside Terrace:

Located at the north end of the lodge, our newest garden wraps around an outdoor space perfect for an intimate gathering or a glass of wine at the end of the river walk. Our signature weeping willows are especially stunning on winter nights, when uplighting illuminates their elegant branches.
