Although Sun Mountain is not near any large city, I was impressed by the level of sophistication both in facilities and dining. It is fascinating to consider that they are able to provide such a high quality product when the nearest city is over two hours away. I am not a cross country skier but understand that it is a...

Four guys rented a large room on a winter package. Space was "cozy" but adequate. Plenty of towels, blankets, pillows, etc. We were able to relax, nap, and sleep in the room, but most of our time was spent outside or reading in one of the lounges by a fireplace. We requested, and got, a small refrigerator. Our room didn't... More

Stayed in the main lodge with a spa package. The spa was great after a full day of cross country skiing and snow shoeing (rentals and gear available on site). Groomed trails right out from the lodge. Nice quiet and clean rooms with comfortable beds. Nice bar and restaurant. Will be coming back again for a winter getaway. My girlfriend... More

This was our first visit to the Methow Valley and we chose Sun Mountain for its access to the cross-country ski trails. Their mid-week, third night free package made the stay more affordable. We chose a room in the Gardner lodge, second floor, with a private balcony and spectacular view. We felt the view from our room/balcony was even better... More

Thank you so much for coming all the way over here to ski! The Gardner building has long been a favorite of many - in part the décor but as you well put it - the views. The Chicken Curry Soup has become a tradition now - we have been serving it since 1991 and dare not take it off... More

We visited Sun Mountain over the Xmas/New Year’s holidays this year. We’ve been to the lodge a few times in the past (both summer and winter) and always have a wonderful time with all the activities that are available. This year, we were able to take advantage of the exceptional ski conditions, although it was quite cold the week we... More

Stayed here post-Christmas after reading/hearing rave reviews about this place. First, let me tell you it is quite a drive to get there (over 4 hours from Issaquah). You get to Winthrop after almost 4 hours and then it's another 20-25 minutes to get up to Sun Mountain Lodge. The place is quite nice. They offer numerous activities and we... More

We've visited here many times, the first time back in 1980. This past week we visited mid week for a few days in order to take advantage of a three night special rate. Same great service but without the usual weekend crowds. Over the summer months the lodge is a kind of 'dude' ranch, in the winter the nordic ski... More

We stayed in the Patterson Lake Cabins (#611) over New Years (two couples with three children each). The cabin was clean and well equipped with a stunning view of the Lake and surrounding mountains. It has two private bedrooms for the adults and a sleeping loft for kids which worked well and made the space seem uncrowded. The cabins are... More

For eleven years, my husband and I have been going to Sun Mountain Lodge in the winter for cross country skiing. It is an amazing experience.
