Salish Lodge & Spa: A Quintessentially Northwest Romantic Getaway
Just a short drive east of Seattle you'll find a luxurious lodge that captures much that makes the Northwest so special and unique. Salish Lodge & Spa, located in Snoqualmie, Washington, sits at the top of grand Snoqualmie Falls, surrounded by lush green forest. The contemporary Northwest decor, with natural wood, stone, and glass elements, is warm and welcoming. The acclaimed Salish Lodge Dining Room features the freshest of Northwest cuisine, from just-caught steelhead trout to locally-foraged mushrooms. Starting later this summer, much of the herbs and produce will come from their own, on-site garden. The garden's bee apiary already provides the light honey used both in menu items and in spa treatments. During my recent visit I had the opportunity to try both. The grilled salmon with Salish honey glaze blended sweet crunch with a hint of smoke. The Spa's "Honey from Heaven for the Hands and Feet" treatment combined a relaxing soak with exfoliation and a skin softening massage. If you're looking for a romantic escape or a few days of relaxation near Seattle, yet outside the city, Salish Lodge & Spa has much to offer.

Few major cities enjoy such a delightful weekend retreat just 30 minutes from the hustle and bustle of downtown. Built in 1916 as The Snoqualmie Falls Lodge, the Inn became famous for its country breakfasts which it still is today. The Lodge was completely remodeled in 1988 and become the Salish Lodge, a spa was added in 1996 and all the guestrooms were remodeled and redecorated in 2010. The setting could not be more dramatic as the Inn sits on a hillside in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains overlooking the majestic 268-foot Snoqualmie Falls. TV fans will remember this as the setting for the show, "Twin Peaks". The Falls are one of the most visited attractions in Washington. Full Post.

"Best Night Out: Readers share favorite for live music, romantic getaways."
When our readers want their nights out to be more of a quiet affair, involving a sitter, candlelight, and a table for two, few spots can contend with the Salish Lodge for romance. With its stunning setting atop the spectacular Snoqualmie Falls, the Salish is a common choice for couples celebrating their special days. Last year, the lodge hosted 140 weddings, said general manager Rod Lapasin, and was the site of who knows how many proposals.
If the falls, the wood-burning fireplaces and two-person jetted tubs in each room, and the menu of couple's spa services weren't enough, though, Lapasin says Salish staff go above and beyond to make guests' visits wonderfully memorable. They also are often drafted into helping with the proposals themselves. One recent guest wanted to have the words "Marry me" spelled out in rose petals on the bed before his beloved checked into the room. "He asked 'is that possible?' We said, 'of course,'" Lapasin said. One of the in-room serving staffers prepared the room as directed, but since he had to leave work after his shift, he called back that evening to find out from other staffers if she'd said yes.

Perched literally atop the falls, this lodge is rich in history: originally an eight-room inn for weary travelers back in 1916, it was known for its hearty breakfasts to fortify its patrons before they continued on with their respective journeys, be it into the mountains or down to the sea.

Caviar Affair, Winter 2011
Where to sample the luxurious side of Seattle? I suggest: Salish Lodge & Spa. My room's balcony hovered over a waterfall - day and night I heard the roar of the Snoqualmie River plunging 268 feet into the canyon below. This lodge next to Snoqualmie Falls is 30 miles east of downtown Seattle. The whitewater and mountainous backdrop suggest a mecca for hikers and paddlers, but once you settle, you'll want to stay indoors. The lodge's 89 rooms have two-person whirlpool tubs and wood-burning fireplaces. The Dining Room overlooking the falls features Northwest cuisine; fuel up with the four-course Country Breakfast. The Spa has everything to calm your nerves and recharge your batteries.

The Bee's Knees
Salish Lodge & Spa in Snoqualmie, Wash., recent installed a four-hive, 120,000 honeybee apiary, which will yield between 650 and 800 pounds of a light, classic honey to be collected and integrated into the hotel's indigenous Northwest cuisine in 2012. ...As soon as its hives are producing honey, The Spa at Salish Lodge will debut the Salish Milk and Honey Bath, the Salish Oatmeal and Honey Body Treatment and Honey from Heaven for the Hands and Feet. "The beauty benefits of honey have been long recognized," says Spa Director Melanie Silver. "Plus our guests are always looking for natural, locally sourced products, and Salish-produced honey provides us with the ultimate local resource to utilize in our treatments."
HeedtheHeedonist.com, August 6, 2011
The Salish Lodge and Spa has also recently installed a four-hive honeybee apiary with some 120,000 bees this past May. This installation took place with the help of beekeeper Daniel Sullivan, proprietor of Shipwreck Honey in West Seattle. This apiary - located on the hillside overlooking the hotel and Snoqualmie Falls, but not accessible to the public - is anticipated to produce between 650 and 800 pounds honey. This honey will be collected and integrated into Salish's indigenous Northwest cuisine, signature spa treatments and in Lodge retail outlets as early as next year. One of the whimsical new honey-related menu items is the "Honey from Heaven" tradition - a unique dining experience that is served as a part of Salish's legendary four-course Country Breakfast, which was started in a 1916. This tradition requires a server to stand on top of a stool and then pour a waterfall of honey from approximately four feet above the table in luxuriously long, golden strands - honey strands that then land on the plated fresh biscuits and oatmeal on the breakfast table below.

Sauced | Get a Room: Salish Lodge Hosts a Port Dinner
The Salish Lodge is hosting a five-course port dinner on Wednesday, March 30, featuring ports from Taylor's, a 300-year-old port maker from that classic port-making region, the Douro Valley. But Jessica, you might ask, when considering whether to sign up for the $125, five-course, Portuguese-themed meal, isn't a port dinner a little... dangerous? Won't I end up telling the strangers seated next to me that I love them? The answer - given the fortified wine's legendary, but not really exaggerated, abilities to inebriate - is yes. The only solution is to book a room at the hotel and make a mini-vacation out of it. And don't worry about those strangers. They love you back.
The dinner begins at 7:30 in the Falls Terrace, there is a reception at 6:30.
Here's what you'll drink: Croft Pink Port, Fonseca Porto Terra Bella Reserva Organic NV, Taylor Fladgate Tawny Port 20 Year Old, Taylor Fladgate Late Bottled Vintage Port 2005, Taylor Fladgate Late Bottled Vintage Port 2005, Taylor Fladgate Porto Vintage Quinta Vargellas 2008.
Here's what you'll eat: Hors d'oeuvres (torta, smoked sturgeon, brandade fritters) at the reception, then the five-course meal: hard-cider venison backstrap, hazelnut-crusted diver scallops, port-braised short ribs with sweet mascarpone polenta and carrots, a caramelized banana tartlet, and, finally, a selection of local cheeses.

The dining room of the Salish Lodge & Spa east of Seattle features an overlook of Snoqualmie Falls, a tourist attraction for nearly a century, and a breakfast menu item, Honey from Heaven, that is an enduring draw on its own. The unusual presentation of Snoqualmie Valley Fireweed Honey, from a family-owned apiary located in the scenic foothills of the Cascade Mountains near the lodge, mimics the falls, as Salish general manager John Murphy explains: "Honey from Heaven tableside service is part of our legendary four-course country breakfast, a Pacific Northwest favorite since 1916. The tradition requires a server to stand atop a stool, while pouring honey from four feet above the table in long, golden strands to the fresh biscuits or oatmeal below. We are always delighted when guests return asking for Honey from Heaven, but also when a new generation of guests arrives to experience it for the first time."

25% off at Washington's Salish Lodge & Spa
Looking for cool spring break ideas? When you explore areas away from the snow and sun, you can find some great deals. In the Pacific Northwest, for instance, the Salish Lodge & Spa is offering a 25% off discount for weeknight stays in March and April. This 89-room hotel - a half hour outside Seattle, in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains and overlooking lush Snoqualmie Falls - is a AAA Four Diamond winner that's been on Conde Nast Traveler 's Gold List and Travel+Leisure 's 500 World's Best Hotels. Even if March and April aren't terribly sunny and warm here yet, the Salish has a woodsy, sit-by-the fireplace splendor. Indeed, all rooms come with in-room fireplaces, as well as jetted tubs and perks such as a choice of six pillows. And when you're tired of making s'mores, you'll have good hiking nearby.
When we checked March weeknight dates, we found a room with two double beds for $167 a night, down from $222 - indeed a tidy 25% discount. For a little more - $189 a night (down from $252) you can also get a river view. Can't break away during the week? The lodge offers a 15% disocunt for weekend dates, too, though when we looked for those, none were available. Otherwise, there's only one catch: The rates must be pre-paid and are non-refundable.

Spaventures for Her: Double Shot, No Whip - Northwest Coffee Exfoliation
I'm an ad for Seattle: driving along I-90, admiring the changing leaves as I listened to KEXP and sipped a Starbucks latte. But it takes true dedication to the Northwest aesthetic to allow someone to scrub your body with ground coffee. Thankfully, my caffeine cleanse took place in the idyllic setting of Salish Spa, perched above Snoqualmie Falls, with complimentary soaking pools begging for honeymooners.
But I was here on business. It was dead-skin-cell-eradication time. According to my body therapist, Kammin, I'd chosen a treatment popular with men (coffee, apparently, sounds more manly than green tea or rosemary with mint). But do men cringe like frightened puppies when a mixture of Dead Sea salt and ground coffee extract is rubbed all over their legs? I asked Kammin to dilute the combination a bit (reminder: I'm a wuss), and then settled into my first exfoliation - which started to feel less and less like being dragged across the beach, and more and more rejuvenating. "Your skin is pretty dehydrated," Kammin said, working on my back. I was embarrassed to tell her about the three glasses of wine I had the night before and the latte I chugged right before my appointment. The mixture is ever-so-slightly caffeinated; regular coffee drinkers wouldn't even notice. ("It's not Starbucks," she says, "just coffea arabica.") Plus, it smelled like mint. After a quick belly scrub, Kammin sent me to the showers to rinse off, then finished with a soothing lotion of jasmine and shea butter. My skin was glowing and smooth afterward - I kept offering my arm to people at work to pet. And to top it off, Salish offered a complimentary Starbucks latte.

Cinematic Panorama - Salish Lodge & Spa
The view doesn't get much more stunning than the point where Snoqualmie Falls and Salish Lodge & Spa converge. The site, also home to two hydroelectric power plants, is a cinematographer's dream - the dramatic landscape and the historic inn were featured in the 1990s cult television series, Twin Peaks, by artist/filmmaker David Lynch. Guestrooms and suites were recently renovated and outfitted in cozy Northwest décor. Resting on the mantel over the wood-burning fireplace in each room are historic photographs curated by the Snoqualmie Valley Historical Society, depicting the people and places of the Snoqualmie Valley. This is hearty breakfast country. The four-course Country Breakfast, including their famous steel-cut oats, sweetened with fireweed honey that servers drip from on high, is a bellyfiller and lodge tradition. Besides offering a magnificent view to watch the sun set, the dining room has an excellent culinary program lead by Chef Tyler Hefford-Anderson, paired with a Washington state-focused wine list. Make reservations throughout December for one of the Purely Northwest holiday Rooms. Combine skiing or snowshoeing with a stay, or beat a path straight to the spa for a pampering hot stone massage. For the holidays, the Lodge will host a special reading of "T'was the Night Before Christmas" by Karolyn Grimes, better known for her role as Zuzu Bailey in the popular holiday film, It's a Wonderful Life. Complimentary cookies and cider will be served, and families are invited to partake in Santa photos.

Salish Lodge & Spa - Tucked away in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains, Salish Lodge & Spa overlooks the 268-foot Snoqualmie Falls. The facility has eight single treatment rooms and two rooms for couples. There are also two therapeutic mineral soaking pools with treetop views, a eucalyptus-filled steam room and a dry sauna. Earlier this year, the spa unveiled a new menu of treatments, incorporating regionally sourced ingredients such as seaweed from Puget Sound and exfoliants made from organic espresso. Ask about the Green Tea & Northwest Seaweed Salt Glow. This detox treatment buffs the skin to restore the natural glow. Expectant mothers will find this spa to be a sanctuary, catering to all pre-natal needs. This April, the hotel teamed up with skincare line Mama Mio to offer a menu of therapies devoted entirely to the mother-to-be. We like the Yummy Tummy - think facial for the tummy. The treatment uses omega-rich products to maximize skin strength, health and elasticity. Combine that with an upper back, neck and head massage and you've got one happy mother. Guests are encouraged to arrive 30 minutes before treatments to take advantage of the steam room, saunas and soaking pools. Why rush the experience? Getting there: Salish Lodge & Spa is just 30 miles east of Seattle and within 40 minutes of the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport.

No need to travel far to be creative. Here are two of our favorite local places to find a quick and restful escape.
Salish Lodge - Overlooking the Snoqualmie Falls sits Salish Lodge, a quick 30 minute drive from Seattle. Salish features rooms with wood burning fireplaces and oversized jetted tubs.

Connecting with the customer: Salish's Murphy shares business philosophy, an article written by Seth Truscott, follows the history and philosophy of John Murphy, Salish Lodge & Spa's general manager. Hailing from the east coast, and after graduating from the Culinary Institute of America at Hyde Park, N.Y., Murphy found his first job in the kitchen at a French restaurant in Princeton, N.J. He quickly began to see the bigger picture, that he couldn't control the customer, the dining experience or the facility. When he decided to leave the kitchen behind in favor of restaurant and hospitality operations, he said, "I took away what guest service really means". Murphy's philosophy is all about connecting with the customer. "Many times, you can become close to a customer when there is a complaint, he said. They're willing to come to you. You have to listen, to be able to turn that around with a solution. Now you have a customer that's loyal." In discussing Salish's nearly-completed guest room renovation project, Murphy stated, "We're always continuing to reinvent, to evolve, to look at the next level of guest service, while staying true to legacy and tradition that Salish is known for. A six-year employee of Columbia Hospitality, Inc. which operates Salish, Murphy has previously worked for the company at Bell Harbor International Conference Center in Seattle, and Cedarbrook Conference Center in Sea-Tac, Washington.
