Visit Salish Lodge in Snoqualmie

By Claire Nunn on January 6, 2022

We know the weather might not scream "let's visit a waterfall" but Salish Lodge can change that. Salish Lodge and Spa located about an hour from Joint Base Lewis-McChord could be just the winter escape you're looking for. 

The lodge grants visitors a truly Northwest experience with its cozy interior and perched above the stunning Snoqualmie Falls surrounded by rock and greenery. The 268-foot waterfall will quickly become the centerpiece of your getaway with views from inside the lodge as well as from viewing platforms outside. 

The cozy vibes continue in each of the 86 guestrooms. Each room features a gas fireplace, oversized soaking tubs, as well as a deck allowing you to hear the roar of the falls even when you're in your room. Exclusive room options include their patio room which features your own personal fire pit that's lit each evening. Plus, this allows you the option to order a s'mores kit to roast marshmallows on your patio. You can also upgrade to receive a view of the Snoqualmie river.

Once you've settled into your room and soaked in all of the falls, we suggest heading to the spa. The multi-award winning spa - including "Top 50 Hotel Spas in the United States"  by Conde' Nast Travelers - won't disappoint. It's important to note that all spa treatments require an advance reservation, so we suggest making the plans before you arrive for your trip.

Multiple massage treatments, facial treatments, exfoliation treatments and more are available for reservation. Soaking pools, sauna and a steam room are also available by appointment only. 

After you've spent the day relaxing it's time to indulge in their Northwest-inspired menus at their restaurants. There are two dining options available on property - The Dining Room and The Lounge at the Attic.

The lounge provides a casual and comfortable vibe with a menu consisting of soups, salads and various starters such as burrata, cheese plates and more. This establishment is 21+.

The Dining Room offers not only stunning views of Snoqualmie Falls and the Snoqualmie River, but it also features amazing cuisine. An extensive dinner menu includes grilled salmon, pork chops, filet mignon and so much more. The Dining Room also features a vegan menu as well. 

The real star of the dining experience at Salish Lodge is their breakfast served in The Dining Room. Well known for their Old Fashioned Steel Cut Oats served with Salish Honey, poached fruit and brown sugar, it's so good it can also be purchased in the gift shop to make at home. 

Of course a day trip is possible and non-hotel guests are able to book at the Salish Spa, but we highly recommend planning an overnight for a true Pacific Northwest getaway. 

Before booking a reservation be sure to check out the many packages on their website that include overnight stays, dining credit and spa credit for a lower price. To check out prices and book your stay visit,
