Discover the Lakeside Lifestyle
While you're a Woodmark guest, take a seasonal Lake Washington cruise aboard the Woodmark II, our 1956, 28 foot Chris-Craft Sedan Express. She is one of only 46 of her type built between 1956 and 1959, and every bit a classic from her retro design to her mahogany decks.
You're also welcome to explore Lake Washington in our single or double-seated kayaks available at our Kirkland marina. We suggest the short paddle to the Yarrow Bay Wetlands, a 66-acre urban wildlife preserve just south of Carillon Point, or head five miles north to the Juanita Bay Wetlands.
The Woodmark has 4 bikes available for guests to use. These cruisers are equipped with a basket and are perfect for a trip into Kirkland, or just to see the sights along Lake Washington Boulevard. Our Beach Cruisers are available on a first-come, first-serve basis from dawn until dusk, weather permitting.
