A majestic tribute to the northwest for lovers of luxury lodging.
Thirty miles east of Seattle within view of the Cascade Mountains, this resort is a year-round favorite with locals. And for those from out of town, it's the place to experience the grandeur and traditions of the Pacific Northwest, beginning with the awe-inspiring Snoqualmie Falls. Considered a sacred site by the Snoqualmie Tribe, this natural wonder is right at the lodge's doorstep --- our favorite rooms boast spectacular views looking over the tumbling water. Every one of the rustic-luxe bedrooms is a treat with custom-built woodwork, two-person oversized whirlpools tubs, wood-burning fireplaces and feather beds with goose down comforters. For additional luxury, book one of the Spa Suites, where extras include breakfast, daily wine and hors d'oeuvres, and a bath butler sampler. As for The Spa at Salish Lodge, it is done in a unique Pacific Rim style, blending northwest influences (check out the cedar ceilings) with Asian influences (hand-carved shoji doors, for example) to create a tranquil, Zenned-out place to unwind after a long day of hiking or skiing. Dining choices include The Dining Room, serving fine northwest cuisine and the lodge's legendary four-course breakfast with steel-cut oats and honey from the house hives. In addition, the Attic offers a more casual experience with an applewood-fired pizza oven, private label wines and custom Salish ale and vodka.
