Mt. Holiday Ski Area is 1.7 miles away and Hickory Hills is only six, making it a year-round destination for outdoor enthusiasts.

While its beautiful location alongside the lake ensures travelers can take a swim, hike or enjoy eagle watching, there are many amenities that also add to the pleasure of a visit. These include the private beach area, free Wi-Fi, free parking, the fully-equipped fitness center, the concierge services, luggage storage, 24-hour front desk service, gift shop, and lounge, among others.

The different accommodations also make this hotel a destination in its own right because each is luxuriously appointed and promises amazing views of the lake or the courtyard area. There are king rooms with spas, double kings, efficiencies and more. All have premium bedding and separate lounging areas, spa tubs and signature toiletries, high-end entertainment systems with cable channels, free local calls, kitchenettes with microwaves, mini-fridges and beverage systems, and more. All rooms include free daily breakfast, too.

With an idyllic waterfront location, The Baywatch Resort is sure to become a fast favorite at any time of the year.
