Port Ludlow welcomes you as you cross the Hood Canal Floating Bridge and enter a region rich in outdoor activities; it is a residential and recreational community built up around the shores of Ludlow Bay.
Originally founded by Pope and Talbot, Inc. in the 1870's as one of the first logging and sawmill communities, Port Ludlow has become a vital, diverse and prosperous residential community of homes and
condominiums, plus a championship 18 hole golf course and a 300 slip full service marina.
Ideally located to give you the best of all worlds: cultural sophistication associated with urban life and a full spectrum of outdoor recreational opportunities found in country living. At its front door is Puget Sound, a sailing and
yachting gateway to the U.S. and Canadian San Juan Islands and the world beyond. At its back door is the magnificent
Olympic National Forest. Just 18 water miles to the east is Seattle (90 minutes by car including a spectacular 30 minute ferry
ride). Bremerton and Silverdale (with its million square foot shopping mall) are a short 30 minute drive across the Hood Canal
Bridge and Port Townsend is just minutes to the north. The international city of Victoria, British Columbia is less than 2 hours
north including a beautiful ferry ride across the Straights of Juan de Fuca.
Port Ludlow's hub contains a grocery-gas store, casual dining, art gallery and gift shop, beauty salon, post office, RV park,
fire service, dental and chiropractic care and medical aid, and other professional services are available within the community.
Larger store grocery shopping, doctors, dentists, hospitals, churches, art galleries, entertainment and major shopping malls
are all located conveniently near Port Ludlow.
Jefferson County Airport, just minutes away, provides access through charter services directly to and from Seattle-Tacoma
(Sea-Tac) International Airport. Or you can charter a seaplane from Seattle’s Lake Union or Washington that will land right
on Ludlow Bay and taxi you to the marina.
A Family Community with many attractions. There is a park and playground for younger children as well as adults. There’s swimming, tennis, golf, sailing and power boating, hiking, kayaking, cross country skiing in the
Olympics, mountain biking, fishing, crabbing, clam digging, oyster picking, hunting, scuba diving, wind surfing, plus many
other opportunities for active families.
Moderate Climate : In a part of the world that’s noted for its rainfall, Port Ludlow enjoys more sunshine than is typical to the Pacific Northwest, averaging only 27 inches annually. This is due, in part, to Port Ludlow’s location
relative to the Olympic Mountains, which form a "rain shadow"; a natural obstacle to storms flowing inland from the Pacific
Ocean. Air temperature is influenced by surrounding water temperatures that remain fairly constant year round, creating a gentle cooling during the summer days and a warming effect in the winter months.
A Pioneer in its own right, Port Ludlow has been a model for other communities in the northwest, often copied but never surpassed. The moderate climate, plus the wide range of social and recreational activities all contribute to make Port
Ludlow a great choice for visiting and vacationing. Apart from the many on-site activities, cultural events in Seattle, Port
Townsend and surrounding communities offer an exciting opportunity to keep abreast of and in touch with the fine arts.
