There isn't a more perfect place for re-kindling or starting a new tradition than Salish Lodge & Spa. Named Best Place to Kiss, Best Place to Propose and Best Place to Celebrate an Anniversary by 425 Magazine, could it get any better? We think so...

We'd like to introduce you to our Romance Concierge, Dr. Pepper Schwartz. In the service of love and passion, Dr. Pepper is available to aid all guests of Salish in creating unique experiences – on and off the menu. A Snoqualmie resident, she received her PhD from Yale University and is presently Professor of Sociology at the University of Washington. Author of many popular as well as academic books, she has been recognized for her work bringing academic expertise on relationships and sexuality to the general public. She serves as the Love and Relationship Expert for AARP and was the Chief Relationship Expert for over a decade at She has written 22 books including "Places for Passion," which was recently published by Frommer's (Salish Lodge & Spa is even included!) and voted one of the top eight travel books in 2014 by the Associated Press.

She has been profiled in the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times Science section and appeared numerous times on Oprah and the Today Show.

According to Dr. Pepper, "Romance is the elixir of life. I am not just being poetic here! You've heard the expression "drunk on love," well sometimes that's no exaggeration. Yes, love mellows over the years, but romance can jump start it again, like a little bit of fuel on a not quite died out camp fire. Infusions of romance are relationship insurance. Romantic getaways are an easy way to add a little more romance now and then. I love working with Salish Lodge, a world class romantic hotel, because it's not only fun to build and support romantic experiences; it's an important addition to couples emotional welfare and long term stability."
