My husband and I returned for our second stay at the Skamania Lodge in November 2012. We had a good experience there 4 years ago, and again this time too! This full-service property is beautiful and the staff was quite friendly and helpful. They've remodeled the main lobby area recently with more modern furniture, etc. I know other reviewers have complained about the remodel and that the seating is not as comfortable, etc. but I felt the lobby area was still just as cozy and welcoming as it was before. It was actually a little crowded the first night when we arrived, but it was a holiday weekend, and it cleared out later in the evening. I like that they have self-serve coffee/tea/cocoa/cider in the lobby all day/evening. Also it was beautifully decorated for Christmas!
One of the things I love most about the Skamania Lodge is that it's very dog friendly. They provide a nice doggie welcome bag of goodies upon arrival, there's a patio door in the dog friendly rooms that goes directly outside (convenient!), and the staff wanted to pet our dog and offered him treats every time they saw him. We were told he could go pretty much anywhere in the lodge except into the restaurants (as long as he was leashed and well-behaved, of course). It was nice to be able to take him into the lobby, gift shop, out on the back lawn, etc. with us.
Our room was quite nice - spacious and very comfortable, with all the amenities we could want. I did find two power outlets that didn't seem to be working on our room, however.
We had the Friday night buffet in the Cascade Room our first night. It was a huge buffet and everything was fresh and delicious. It was a little bit expensive, though. We also had breakfast from room service one morning. The food was good and service was quick. Also, since we opted out of having our room cleaned during our stay, we received a $5 restaurant credit from their "green" program, which was nice.
Overall we really enjoyed our stay, and plan to return in the future!
