About Salish Lodge & Spa

Address: 6501 Railroad Ave, Snoqualmie, WA 98065

Salish Lodge & Spa is an elegant lodge that’s located 30-minutes away from Seattle. If you live in Seattle, it’s the perfect escape from the city. If you don’t, it’s still worth visiting for a relaxing stay atop Snoqualmie Falls.

It’s a part of Snoqualmie history, as the original was called The Snoqualmie Falls Lodge. It was an inn with 8 rooms back in 1916 with the main purpose of being a rest stop for travelers.

The Country Breakfast is what made it famous, as the travelers would eat it before going over the mountain pass.

In 1988, it was remodeled and became The Salish Lodge. It’s proudly owned by the Snoqualmie Indian Tribe and offers a luxurious and relaxing place to stay.

What the rooms are like

The rooms in Salish Lodge are beautiful, modern, and stylish. Each room is a luxury mountainside retreat. It’ll include a gas fireplace, 50-inch flat-panel television, bath amenities, and a spa-like shower or soaking tub.

There are 8 types of rooms available, they’re as follows:

  • Classic: It offers a king bed, gas fireplace, built-in bench, work desk and chair, sitting area, spa-like shower, and a view of the front of the Lodge.
  • Deluxe: The same features of the Classic room, except the view. The Deluxe room has a view of the grounds and the historic hydroelectric power plant.
  • Patio: What makes the Patio room unique is that you get a private gas fire pit, easy access to the Snoqualmie Falls viewing area, and an oversized soaking and shower combination.
  • Premier: The Premier room offers a corner balcony with a table and chairs. It also has a large spa-like shower and a separate oversized soaking tub.
  • River View: You’ll have the features of the Classic and Deluxe room with views of the Snoqualmie River.
  • Spa-Level River View: It’s the same thing as the River View room, but it also has access to the luxurious spa, Club 268.

One service that most people don’t know about is the Pillow Menu. Regardless of the room that you choose, you have the option to request one of the following pillows, and they’re complimentary:

  • Buckwheat pillow.
  • Lavender pillow.
  • Body pillow.
  • Memory foam pillow.
  • Pregnancy pillow.
