My wife and I chose Suncadia Lodge to spend our 16th anniversary. We splurged and went with the deluxe penthouse suite with river view.
The good: The room (and entire property) has spectacular views, nice king-size beds / bedding, flat screen TV in the living room and bedrooms, etc. We found the staff to be very accommodating, friendly, and helpful. We had drinks in the lounge, which was busy (Friday night), but the service was prompt.
Prospector Golf Course was excellent, even priced @ $110 I really enjoyed playing it. My wife enjoyed bicycling on the paved bike paths, and there's a spa and a family rec center we didn't avail ourselves to try. We hiked two of the short trails that leave from the lodge, they're "ok", clearly marked, but really don't go anywhere. You hike down about a mile, then back up the hill. A little boring.
The bad: Sofa in the living room was dirty and worn with sagging cushions. The dining room chairs were scratched and marred. This is not the kind of furniture I expect to see when paying premium room prices.
There are rental condos and houses also available, but usually require to be rented for a full week, not just Friday/Saturday as we did.
Food in the restaurant tasted good, but is very expensive. Maybe one night for dinner at the lodge restaurant would suffice. FYI...I've reviewed a nearby local restaurant I'd recommend over the lodge.
Agree with another reviewer...go check out the little nearby town of Roslyn for lunch or ??, and Cle Elum and the Parlour Car Bistro for dinner.
In a few more years, this place might have more amenities to offer, ala' Sun River, OR. Some more family-friendly restaurants on the Suncadia property would be hugely successful.
