It's hard to imagine a more beautiful setting than Snoqualmie Falls. Or a more iconic and distinctive Washington State resort getaway than the Salish Lodge & Spa. Only 30 minutes from Seattle, Salish Lodge provides a quintessential Pacific Northwest resort experience. Each one of our 84 guestrooms is a luxury retreat of its own. All have oversized jetted tubs and fireplaces, and many have views of the Snoqualmie River. It's the perfect place to relax after spending the day skiing the slopes or hiking the local trails or, with a little advice from our Romance Concierge, to create an incredible romantic getaway. The Spa at Salish Lodge specializes in Northwest inspired treatments featuring herbs from our garden and honey from our on-site apiary. And don't forget our two restaurants - The Dining Room providing a first-of-the-season experience featuring flavors that sing the virtues of local and homegrown and The Attic offering casual surroundings and wood-fired pizza and sandwiches. And you'll find our signature Salish honey on those menus too! Just look for the Salish bee indicating all things highlighting our sweet offerings.
Our beloved lodge is part of Snoqualmie history. Originally The Snoqualmie Falls Lodge, it began as an eight-room inn built in 1916 as a rest stop for travelers. It quickly became famous for its country breakfasts (then called the Farm Breakfast) - 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. It is now proudly owned by the Muckleshoot Indian Tribe. Out-of-towners may recognize the Salish as the setting for Twin Peaks™, the David Lynch TV mystery series. Salish Lodge has been updated over the years to feature contemporary and luxury amenities, 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 with 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.
