Treat Your Valentine to a Visit to Salish Lodge

+ did you know?

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 Breakfast, then called the Farm Breakfast, which nourished visitors before they journeyed over the mountain pass. In 1988, the building was completely remodeled and reopened as the Salish Lodge.

Gorgeous views, serene nature, just 30 minutes away from the bustle of the city, Salish Lodge & Spa is a perfect Valentine's Day romantic destination, complete with recently remodeled cozy rooms, a luxurious spa and fine dining. Dine at the Attic, which offers a casual ambiance; or the Dining Room for a special fine dining experience. Both restaurants stay true to Pacific Northwest cuisine using fresh, vibrant, seasonal ingredients and partner with local growers, purveyors and farms. Don't miss the famous four-course Country Breakfast with the iconic Honey from Heaven service where honey from the resort's own hives is poured from high above your plate onto buttery house-made biscuits This Salish Lodge tradition keeps visitors coming back year after year. Enjoy a luxuriously comfortable dining experience, featuring award-winning food and wine alongside one of the best views in the Seattle area.


Each guestroom is a luxury retreat of its own. All have gas fireplaces, spa-like showers with dual showerheads or oversized soaking tubs, and many have views of the Snoqualmie River. The interiors have a modern yet relaxed feel, truly reflecting the beautiful nature surrounding the resort. All the lotions and soaps in the room entice relaxation and calmness. Don’t forget to utilize the lush robes and slippers left for you. Before dinner, opt for happy hour in the comfort of your own room by the fire with Champagne and a cheese plate for two.
