Seaside is not easy to find! You'll probably pass by it several times, but its marked by a big black gate. When making your reservations, be sure to ask for the directions! They are not very visible, but rightly so!
We stayed in the Opal room, which was gorgeous. The matress had a fluffly down blanket under the sheets for extra comfort, with fine linens and another down thrown ontop.
Did I mention the veiw? Did I mention that the bald eagles are more numerous than the sea gulls?
Unique Quality: In addition to being right on the water, with Bill Gates' island right across from us, the hostess cooks a very good breakfast in the morning. The spa boasts a unique pool and a hot tub, great after a day of sight seeing or just lounging around. Overall the place is fantastic!
Directions: They say its close to Victoria, but its not! Its about a 30 min drive, and its closer to the ferries at Swartz Bay.
Right now the website is only advertising for their Mountainside Spa, but maybe you can get a booking through hotels.com or expedia.
