“A wonderful, peaceful place to stay...”
Reviewed 16 April 2012

My second time at Skamania was a personal, family vacation, versus the business stay from five years ago. Without the stress of business, this place looked and felt completely opposity. I didn't realize how beautiful the hotel was until now. The peaceful walk around the lake loop, a short drive into the town of Stevenson, enjoying the huge fireplace with the fire crackling...while lookingout toward the Columbia gorge... and best of all, the staff at Skamania are world class in customer service. I don't recall a staff that was more genuine and friendly than the staff at Skamania. I almost felt like I was at my grand parents' home or something!

I also was able to put two early rounds of golf. They let me off as soon as the course opened at 8am and being the only one on the course at the time, I was able to finish 18 holes within 2 hours, both days. The club pro, Guy, was super both days..and the course was superb both days, with firm/true greens and fairways impeccable. Although the course layout is short, it's a challenging course, with some worldclass views from several holes. Best of all, the cost of the round will not empty your wallet! What a value it is.

Keep up the great work and I would highly recommend Skamania to those looking to getaway from the bustling city for a few days.

Also, if you ever venture out to the town of Stevenson, I would recommend a joint called "Andrews Pizza". Andrew himself makes each every pizza, stromboli and pasta. It's a family owned place that serve big city style food. Excellent overall!!

Lovely stay at this hotel for a recent wedding. Even though it rained the entire time (in typical WA fashion), the hotel is well prepared with amenities, and made our stay comfortable. Nice touches are the covered loading/unloading area outside the hotel, and the large fireplace that greeted us when we arrived. Parking is free and close by, but is also on a lightly sloped hill. Plenty of handicapped spaces. Room was clean and had some nice styling touches (coat hooks, solid wood furniture). We were surprised that our room (and others in our party) did not have refrigerators! We have an infant that needed formula kept cold, and while they apparently had them in suites, there were none in the standard rooms. Indoor pool was much larger than expected and indoor hot tub was located close enough to pool to overwatch kids. My wife had a massage at the spa, and they were able to schedule her in less than 24-hrs notice, which was great. Each morning, the hotel had coffee in lobby and there was coffee in the rooms. We did not eat at the restaurant, but did eat at the wedding in the conference center, and the food was exceptional (also remarked by many other guests). Bar service was also good. For those on a budget, there are more affordable food options out in town (short 5-minute drive to Stevenson). Overall, this was a great stay, and I would highly recommend this hotel. It is in a great location to connect with nature, and enjoy the many trails/hikes in the area. To the Skamania management: get refrigerators in all of your rooms!

Room Tip: There are three floors of guest rooms. This is also a Conference Center so be advised that the place...

We were driving in the area and needed a place for the night. We happened upon this and could not have been happier. This was a wonderful "destination" hotel. Though we only spent one night there, it was luxurious. The lobby is gorgeous witha phenomenal fireplace, teh grounds and view are stunning. The spa was great too. The staff was extrememly helpful and knowledgeable about the area and what was open. What a delight and treat it was to stay here. The food at the restaurant was absolutley the best vacation dinner we have ever eaten!
Don't hesitate to stay here, you won;t be disappointed.

First class service and experience. We had not had an opportunity to escape in 10 months, and we were looking forward to just getting away. Not only did we receive the royal treatment while checking in, Noni H. treated us like we were the only guess in the lodge. the view of the river was great and the massages we had hit all the tight muscles after a morning hike. The big wood burning fire place and the rocking chairs were inviting and relaxing. I can't wait to go back for the Sunday brunch I heard so much about.

This was our 3rd visit to Skamania Lodge and our most enjoyable. It seemed to us the place was better organized and service improved. Maybe it was due to being off season but the service and attention here was outstanding.

Our room was immaculate and well appointed. Our meals at the restaurant here were faultless and the food excellent. Highly recommended if visiting the gorge area.
