I can't say enough about the Gore Mountain Lodge. I have visited North Creek annually for the past 35 years. This is, by far, the nicest, most welcoming place I've experienced. The rooms were clean and equipped with everything we could have needed, from refrigerators to Keurig machines. There is a fire pit on property and yurts for gathering. My... More

We stayed at the Gore Mountain Lodge for 2 nights. Its location is excellent, a very short ride to Gore Mtn. ski resort. The rooms were very confortable & the family that managed the lodge were very nice & helpful. We especiallyt liked the yurts! Remeber to get thier advice for eating out at night!

This lodge was great! The owners have done a wonderful job of renovating an old lodge into a new techno lodge with clean lines and comfort. Parking in front of our room helped with unloading our gear. Didn't have much time to enjoy the Yurt but it seemed an interesting place to go esp. if meeting friends. Owners very helpful... More

We loved your review, tips, and notes about our green features. Next week the rest of our roof will be covered with more solar panels to help offset our use of electricity. Hopefully next time you will be able to enjoy the Yurts but we are glad you were able to tune your skis in our back barn. We had... More

Where to start.... We stayed here Valentines Day weekend for a weekend of skiing and came back last weekend because we loved it so much. Admittedly, the pictures we first saw online made us a bit wary of being victims of some ax murderer (we watch ALOT of movies), but we were stoked about the location to the mountain. Upon... More

I went up to Gore skiing for a few days with my son and niece and was looking for a convenient and comfortable room. This small hotel is well run, conveniently located close to the slopes, and the brothers who run and host it are very personable and friendly, just as great hosts should be! I definitely recommend this place.... More

Was blown away by how well appointed the rooms were, well beyond expectations for a Motel. Very clean and comfortable, but the best part was the laid back yet attentive style of the owners. There is no automatic daily room service, but room was well stocked with towels, so no real need. Owners said if you need anything let them... More

The Lodge rocks. I went up with a college buddy for my second time this past weekend and had the best time. Only a year old, the Lodge continued to impress me.

The lodge is a perfect place for folks who are in town to ski or visit Gore Mountain. It is the closest hotel to the mountain (~ 10 minutes) and it's ergonomically set up to accommodate skiers.
