“OMG such wonderful food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2012

Tom, he chef makes delicious meals each day, tailored to the guests in the lodge. He is simply fabulous. They make their own granola at the lodge too. The restaurant is so warm and cozy with the huge fireplace and furniture made out of gigantic logs. The service is exceptional too. The owners also serve the meals, chatting along the way. They are really wonderfully warm people who almost instantly become your friend. I can't wait to go back next year.

We sincerely appreciate your kind words regarding our cuisine. Chef Tom along with Kathy's direction enjoy taking the added time to prepare these entrees. With just ten private tables, it does offer a unique dining experience, along with a spectacular view of the Cascade Mountains. Our gardens and orchards will be providing a unique selection of fruits and vegetables for the coming season and we so look forward to welcoming back. Thank You…MHL

“Excellent Chef & the most fabulous meals!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 April 2012

When staying at the Mountain Home Lodge during the spring & summer months, I highly recommend adding the meals on to your stay. During the snowy months, they are included & well worth it! Chef Tom is great!!!

Thank you for your generous review and we appreciate your comment about adding dinner in the Spring, Summer and Fall. New guests are sometimes hesitant to commit to dinner, but when they do, they are continually pleased with their decision as they enjoy a wonderful evening. With seating to just 10 private tables, the prix-fixed 4 course event is an added highlight to their weekend. Chef creates each presentation so modifications for dietary restrictions are of no concern. Non guests are always welcomed too. We look forward to welcoming you back to the Mountain.

“Best food we've had since we went to Italy!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 December 2011

We were blown away by the food at Mountain Home Lodge! Everything was so fresh, had a beautiful presentation, and was cooked to perfection. It was very obvious that a true, experienced chef was at work! And the value was superb! We can't stop talking about how amazing the food was, which is one of the top reasons we will return to MHL as soon as we can.

“Expensive. Worth it.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 October 2011

We wanted to stay at the Mountain Home Lodge, but alas, no dogs may stay as guests. If you go here, you will see why I was sad not to be able to stay. It is magnificent. But this is about the restaurant, and we did eat there one night.

The dining room is elegant and cozy all at once, with a massive fireplace in the middle. It's very romantic. We had the best table, with views of the mountains right outside.

The service is top notch. The food very good in an old-fashioned way. Tasty, and in large portions. They even include some local wines on their wine list. I do have to mention that the apple dessert was merely adequate, but I'm an admittedly tough customer.

Overall, I give it 5 stars. Reserve well in advance. Stay overnight if you can.

We appreciate the gracious accolade you shared about your dining experience on "The Mountain". Thank you for taking the time to share your praises. We strive to offer not only delicious seasonal gourmet cuisine in a spectacular setting nestled in the Cascades, but also an intimate dining experience. Our chef's appreciate your comments on the dessert and we will do our best to "WOW" you with one of our show stoppers on your next visit.
