Bottom Line

The Salish Lodge & Spa features 84 rooms in a gorgeous setting overlooking the falls in Snoqualmie, about a 40-minute drive from Seattle. The historic property, which originally opened with only eight rooms back in 1916, is a popular romantic getaway and wedding destination. The restaurants feature beautiful views, and the elegant spa has numerous signature treatments (including one with homemade honey!). Sexy rooms have wood-burning fireplaces and peek-a-boo bathrooms with two-person tubs. Families may consider staying elsewhere, as there is no pool and no amenities geared towards kids. The entire property has a soothing, rustic-luxe style; features such as stone fireplaces, stacked firewood, cashmere throws, bookcases, and warm, earth tones complement the outdoor scenery. And guests can indulge in the lodge's famous four-course breakfast before heading out to the many nearby outdoor activities. All of this comes at a price, and a daily resort fee on top seems excessive -- but then, this lodge is one of the most romantic destinations in the Pacific Northwest.
