Located in a secluded forest spot down a long, winding gravel road, Auberge de Seattle French Country Inn intentionally resembles a French country auberge, a place meant to rejuvenate the spirit through solitude and relaxation. Inside the open kitchen, a wine-tasting aperitif and hors d’oeuvre selection reveal the means to achieve such relaxation—culinary enjoyment. Here, the proprietress blends her complimentary orange wine and the chefs whip up fresh baked goods to set outside of suites each morning. Auberge de Seattle French Country Inn also offers hands-on French Regional cooking classes, and Woodinville boasts about 90 wineries to visit.
A wood-burning fireplace roars in the Honeymoon suite near a two-person hydro-massage bathtub. French doors open on a private terrace tucked in an evergreen forest, and a separate sliding glass door accesses a private patio. Nature is never far from the Chef Quarters one-bedroom apartment, which includes a full kitchen, heated floor tiles, a vaulted ceiling, and a living area. The Studio suite features heated floors and an oversize hydro-massage bathtub, joined by a collection of books and lawn-bowling trophies.
Edge of Seattle Cooking
The staff at Edge of Seattle Cooking ushers guests onto its lush, 5 acres of wooded land for gustatory experiences ranging from simple, peaceful relaxation to a romantic and refined experience in this culinary destination. An extensive roster of chefs, including French natives and a culinary instructor from the Art Institute of Seattle, welcomes students to six-hour, hands-on cooking classes, ongoing class series, and Michelin-starred bake sales. Classes instruct students in a range of skills, from basic kitchen competency to how to whip up haute cuisine, and many courses focus on classic French cooking methods. Owner and Proprietor Nancy Gates-Douglas developed her love for food and wine growing up in Morocco and the Loire Valley of France, and these culinary roots spurred her to create the inn as a place for celebrating French regional cuisine and Washington-state wines. The inn itself combines the provincial with the modern by incorporating such contemporary touches as wireless Internet into its bedrooms and banquet areas, which brim with French antiques and fluffy, decorative lap dogs.
