Hudson's Bar and Grill - A favorite holiday spot in Vancouver, WA

Real Estate Broker/Owner with ViewHomes of Clark County - Nature As Neighbors

We love dining at Hudson's Bar and Grill at the Heathman Lodge, especially during the holidays. They really know how to deck the halls. Plus, award-winning Chef Ray Delgado's Northwest cuisine is top notch. 


Last year, daughter Kelsea gave us a gift certificate for Christmas and we finally got a chance to use it. What a delightful evening we shared surrounded by festive holiday decor - and live carolers! My salmon was superb, and Bernie says his ribeye steak was cooked to perfection. 



As lovers of Nature, we enjoy the rustic lodge atmosphere with massive Douglas fir log walls, the hand-carved dugout canoe hanging on the huge basalt fireplace, splashes of color from Pendleton woolen mills, a 24' Totem pole, and Andy Warhol's Cowboys and Indians artwork collection seen in various locations throughout the lodge. Even the overhead chandeliers are thoughtful choices. 



As our branding experts ( and good friends) Ron and Alexandra Seigel will tell you, the devil is in the details. 

Everywhere you look, the rich history and culture of our Northwest region is authentically reflected at the Healthman Lodge. We've not stayed at the Lodge, but have recommened it to our out-of-town real estate clients. The feedback has always been stellar. 


As were were leaving, we took a minute to admire the trees decorated in the lobby. The hostess offered to take a photo of the two of us, and as Bernie says, we got photo-bombed by Santa. 

You can easily make reservations online via their website. In our opinion, Hudson's Bar and Grill is a great year round place to eat, but this time of year, it's extra special.

That is a great photo of the two of you. Nice review of the Hudson’s Bar and Grill. Sounds like a great place to visit. Like Beth Atalay mentioned, it reminds me of Disney’s Wilderness Lodge. My husband and I love to go there and it is always beautifully decorated for Christmas.

You guys always take a great photo, Debb. You know how you pull up a blog and then get interrupted by a phone call or somebody ringing your doorbell, and by the time you get back to it, you are a bit distracted? Well, that happened to me. I started reading your blog and I forgot whose blog I was reading, and I thought it was Sally and David in Wisconsin (Hudson, you know), and I'm getting blown away thinking, wow, who knew they had this sort of place in Wisconsin of all places, LOL.

Good morning Debb and Bernie - you mentioned a good point from Ron and Alexandra Seigel .  Those details make the atmosphere.  Dining this way is about the experience with includes food but so much more.  Beautiful spot.  I would take your recommendation to stay there.
