Second Waterfront Front Resort Acquired by Skokomish Tribe
April 16, 2015
The Skokomish Tribe of Washington acquired their second waterfront resort on
Hood Canal. Guy Miller, Chairman of the Skokomish Tribe, shared, "The Skokomish
Tribe is very proud of our advances in business, as well as our acquisition of
Glen Ayr and the associated tide lands on Hood Canal. The local economy,
including the town of Hoodsport have rebounded in the last few years, and we are
pleased to be involved with the positive movement forward."
Skokomish Indian Tribal Enterprise Inc. CEO David Owens commented on the
acquisition, "The Skokomish Tribes purchase of Glen Ayr was strategic, and the
property has been on our radar for quite some time. It fits perfectly into our
lodging portfolio by being within the Highway 101 corridor and at a quality
standard that meets our expectations. We have made strong efforts to establish a
concentration of unique business offerings along a well-travelled section of our
established market where adventure seekers and tourist come to escape. We now
have seven unique businesses within a 13-mile radius. By adding Glen Ayr, we
have 187 unique lodging accommodations, making us one of the largest, most
robust operators in the area. Skokomish tourism has a diverse selection of
lodging that ranges from rustic walk-in campsites to 50-amp pull thru RV sites
to Hood Canal waterfront cabins and townhouses. Glen Ayr is 8 miles east from
Skokomish Park at Lake Cushman and 4 miles north of Waterfront at Potlatch. Each
Skokomish lodging property has unique aspects that differentiate them from each
other, while the quality and service that our customers have come to expect
remains consistent property to property."
All of our tourism opportunities are conveniently located off of Highway 101 as
close as 30 minutes north of Olympia.
Glen Ayr is located just north of Hoodsport, WA on the picturesque waters of
Hood Canal and Highway 101. The resort features 17 rooms and 36 RV sites. Glen
Ayr has a private waterfront beach and deep water dock.
