I've been to the Lodge a number of times- they have some wonderful Christmas concerts- and this year I delivered wedding cakes there, but I have never had an opportunity to stay and enjoy the full range of comforts it offers. The lodge packages were always out of our budget so when the Groupon deal came along last October (while I was separated from my husband by thousands of miles) I jumped on it and bought the offer. We had to use our purchase this month before it expired despite the fact that December is a pretty difficult time to get away from the To Do list at home. It turned out to be well worth the effort.
The Lodge was beautifully adorned for the Christmas season.
The large community living room with the massive fire place and Christmas tree was the most popular spot of all. The comfortable seating and the freely available hot drinks worked to lend a relaxing atmosphere that was hard to resist. There was a library, gift shop and of course restaurants with fantastic menus. The golf course and spa ensure complete vacation opportunities. We thoroughly enjoyed the salt water lap pool and spa pools (four of them were available!) If you are ever in the Northwest, I highly recommend that you stop by the Skamania Lodge. We will definitely go back.
