When you need a quick getaway from the city this short hour drive is it! A beautiful stone fireplace anchors the great room and offers breathtaking views of the gorge even if it's rainy outside. A game room, pool with indoor and outdoor hotubs, hiking trails, gold course, yurts to rent in the summer months, outdoor fire pits and nightly s'more roasting. The sunday brunch is out of this world and worth an hour drive even if you're not spending the night. Great place for couples or families.
So worth the drive out !! – Went for the day to play golf, hike and eat. Tremendous property: old world NW charm w/ logs and rock features, remarkable golf course (border the Columbia River Gorge; views are 5 star!!) and the course is elegantly taken care of. Trails around the hotel offer breath taking views of mountain tops and the restaurant/bars offer huge window views. There is a spa/pool that we used for under $10 so this was a bonus for our tired bones. next time we'll stay the night so that we can take in more of the amenities. For Portland, it's just a 45 minute drive out into another world!!
Overrated convention lodge – This is a convention lodge - it is NOT for romantic gateways. For $250/ngt you get a very small room, will hear trains repeatedly througout the night and may be awaken but convention partiers. The dinner was great but it is basically a "dining hall" - loud, big w/ no separation between guests. For a romantic getaway this is so not the place. For the price you could get MUCH, MUCH better.
LOVE IT – Skamania Lodge has got to be our favorite near-town escape! For the value though, I wouldn't recommend any more than the standard room. We've stayed in a fireplace riverview room and didn't find it worth the extra price.
I always try to get a package. The massage is great, and the outdoor hot tub is amazingly beautiful. We've been out in the hot tub in the snow....ah!
Dinner is nice, especially the Friday night seafood.
Ahhh..... – This has to be one of the most beautiful resorts in the northwest, if not the country! The rooms are comfortable and the view is amazing! The service in the restaurant was beyond anything I have ever experienced before. I'm told the spa is fabulous, and I'm bummed that I didn't get to try it, but I have no doubts it would live up to its reputation.
R&R – This was a wonderful getaway. Definantly for people who like nature. If your looking for the snubby hotel with all the foofy staff, this is not the place. Staff was very personable and helpful. My experiecne was one that will bring back to this exquisite utopia.
Cold and hungry – We were really surprised to find this place so lacking in warmth. The hard surfaces make it very noisy and cavernous. The dining room - more like a dining hall - is noisy and hard, too, and the food seemed mass produced and banquet-like. Our room was nice for a motel, but not what we had hoped. We'd recommend stopping to see the wonderful fireplace or to take a dip in their pool, but otherwise we didn't find much value here.
Convention comfortable – Skamania was a great place to go for a business meeting. The food and service were wonderful. The fitness facilities and indoor pool were excellent. The place, however, was crawling with people attending meetings, and many were raucous. The rooms were OK, but not great--a step above a Holiday Inn. However, I wouldn't want to have been here on my own for rest and relaxation!
Great Sunday Brunch!! – i loved the brunch...lots to choose from and it's always fresh and new. usually it's difficult with brunches that serve so many to keep the best entrees well-stocked but they seem to have no problem doing so. there are specialty tables for fruits, desserts, breads and an easy to navigate island where the entrees are kept. all is well-planned and well-managed. service is great. the view is wonderful and the rooms/service are very nice.
romance abounds – Having just returned from a wonderfully romantic weekend, I will give this lodge highest honors! The restaraunt's weekend buffets and menu items are fabulous.The service is outstanding. Though there are several seating areas by the main floors fireplace, one sheds all awareness of the presence of others. The spa is outstanding& the outdoor hot tub is equally appealing. We lodged in a wonderful room, and retired in front of our own fireplace following a spectacular day. The one draw back is that we heard our neighbors ALL night long one of the nights. I would think with the kind of spending done there by visitors, though obviously in construction, the walls would have more sound proofing. Then the weekend would have been perfect.
Romantic Getaway – Went here for my husbands birthday. We had a wonderful romantic weekend! Hotel provides a secluded atomsphere, and the food in the resturant was excellent!!
Hotel is somewhat secluded from any entertainment, or other dining options though...
