The Salish was predictably quirky, eccentric, fascinating, visually-stimulating yet relaxing, and though it was what we expected, it managed to exceed expectations in every aspect. After 13,000 miles of road tripping this summer, in looking back the Salish was hands down our favorite stop. We spent two days with 8 family members in the Salmon Shoals cottage. Super economical to find one place that slept us all, plus being able to cook our own food when we wanted to. Highlights were the floor-to-ceiling antiques and curios, plus amenities including a fully-equipped kitchen, washer and dryer with detergent provided, plus plentiful and wonderful linens for bath and bed, making bedrooms cozy. Kids took over the downstairs that has a bed and sofa bed, plus only an exterior entrance, which meant it was quiet for grownups upstairs. And, because it was windowless downstairs, there was no morning light so kids slept forever. It was so safe, we never thought twice about the 5-year-old running up and down. Hot tub on deck was a hit. Local kayaking, restaurants, shopping was delightful. We haven't stopped talking about it, and will definitely come back!
