Top Three Lakeside Proposals at the Woodmark Hotel in Kirklandphoto

With February fast approaching, lovebirds are preparing to make the most romantic plans to impress or surprise their loved one. A lakeside experience can create the perfect ambiance. The Woodmark Hotel provides an ideal setting to pop the question in a unique and romantic way. Each couple has its own personality and chemistry.  Whether you wish for a proposal that is personal and private, flashy or whimsical, the stunning view of Lake Washington and distant but breathtaking Olympic Mountains create a priceless backdrop.  

Lakeside Proposal #1: A Dream on the Docks

For an outstanding proposal near Seattle, take your special someone on a stroll along Carillon Point, a beautifully groomed landscape featuring a quiet Kirkland marina, displays of sculptures among tendered gardens, and an awe-inspiring sunset that reflects sparkles across the water. As the sun hits the horizon, take her breathe away by leading her to the end of the dock, where a private and serene place to share a timeless moment awaits you. After you propose the Woodmark II, our 1956 vintage Chris-Craft, can appear dockside and whisk you away across the water. On board, pop some champagne and take a moment to celebrate the experience. If you want to share this moment with your friends and family, have them wait on board the Woodmark II until after you pop the question. Perfect for an evening celebration on the lake, you can enjoy drinks and snacks with all of our loved ones! They can even capture photos or video of the proposal from afar!

Lakeside Proposal #2: Woody Mae to Bring the Ring

As most of you know, our pet-friendly hotel near Seattle is home to our beloved Woody Mae, a four-year-old rescue Labrador Retriever who greets each of our guests with tail wags and kisses at the door. If your special someone is a dog lover, be unique and heartfelt by incorporating Woody Mae into your proposal. After all, who could resist such an adorable canine! At any time of day, lead your sweetheart to a private grassy beach located north of the Woodmark’s terrace. The picturesque views of Lake Washington coupled with the stunning Olympic Mountains in the distance create the perfect setting for an intimate proposal. Signal to Woody Mae and have her deliver the most important gift you will ever give.  For those looking for a flashier proposal, this is the perfect spot for a flash mob starring all of your friends and family!
