The Salish Lodge & Spa History
Our lodge is part of Snoqualmie history. The Snoqualmie Falls Lodge was an eight-room inn built back in 1916 as a rest stop for travelers. It quickly became famous for its country breakfasts – multi-course meals that nourished visitors before they journeyed over the mountain pass.
In 1988 the building was completely remodeled and reopened as the Salish Lodge. (Out-of-towners may recognize the Salish as the setting for “Twin Peaks,” the David Lynch TV mystery series.)
The Salish Lodge & Spa now offers two award-winning restaurants and a full-service spa. All of our rooms have been renovated with contemporary, luxury amenities and furnishings, while maintaining the serene Pacific Northwest feel we have long been known for. And after all this time, we still serve our famous four-course Country Breakfast the iconic Honey from Heaven service where honey from our own hives is poured from high above your plate onto your buttery homemade biscuits – a Salish tradition that keeps visitors coming back year after year.
The Snoqualmie Falls were formed by ice and glacial debris flow over 10,000 years ago. The water plunges 268 feet into a 65-foot deep pool, and the average volume of water flowing over the falls is between 500 and 1500 cubic feet per second.
Snoqualmie Falls now supports two hydroelectric power plants, which provide enough electricity to power 16,000 homes. It’s the second most visited tourist destination in Washington and brings in over 1.5 million visitors a year.
Snoqualmie Falls is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
