We really enjoyed our 2-night getaway to Skamania Lodge! We met relatives there for a wedding that was held nearby, but spent our free time visiting at the lodge. The two restaurants, one in the bar and another dining room, had excellent food! The ourdoor patio dining was great, as was the seating down below around a fire pit. You could order the ingredients for SMORES to be delivered down to the fire pit area in the evening!
Our room was a king bed with a fireplace, and very relaxing and enjoyable atmosphere.
The staff were very friendly and accommodating also.
I highly recommend it!

Room Tip: Ask for the refurbished rooms on the 4th floor.

While I didn't stay overnight at Skamania Lodge, I did get a chance to eat in their lounge. Not only was the food top notch, our server Micaela took great care of my party! Even though she seemed to be busy with multiple tables she always found time to check on us. The view and décor or both stunning, truly a great experience. I will definitely be coming back next time I'm in the Gorge!

We visited Mt Hood and Columbia River Gorge on Vacation. The Skamania Lodge was the best hotel by far to stay at on the Washington side of the Columbia river. The hotel ambiance and room were very nice and had a Pacific Northwest feel. The rooms were clean and the staff was friendly. The food at both restaurants was very good. The hotel was also very reasonably priced. While there, we drove along the WA14 for about 25 miles in either direction and there is not other hotel nearly as nice. It is also a very convenient location for outdoor activities in Oregon and Washington. It is also close to Portland.

My husband and I enjoyed our recent stay. I thought staff was especially well-trained and one young lady named Montana was exceptionally efficient and nice to us. The site is gorgeous (literally!) and well worth the price of admission. One small glitch on arrival was quickly remedied.
Loved the full-size swimming pool.

Room Tip: Be sure to get a view of the Columbia River.

The conference space,lodge and outdoor surroundings at Skamania Lodge make for an incredible experience for a work retreat. We had the option of outdoor lunch or meals delivered to our meeting room. Michael Travinski in the golf club house was incredibly helpful coordinating tee times for the team and the pool and hot tubs were enjoyed by all.

Kathleen M,

Thanks for the kind note. Skamania Lodge is the Portland-area’s most meeting-centric destination. By that, we mean that we strive to be the meeting experts in the PacNW. While our 175-acre resort is idea for a family escape, it’s also a wonderful venue for off-site meetings and events. We hope to welcome you back often- whether it be for business or pleasure.

Kind Regards,

Ken Daugherty
General Manager

Our stay was only for one night so we didn't use most of the facilities offered. The staff was outstanding. Very friendly and helpful from check in to check out. We did not have a view room but the room was generous. The bathroom although nice was not very large but it was fine. Both were very clean which is most important. I'm sure a room with a view would be lovely but if the weather is good it's enjoyable to sit outside taking in the view. The grounds around the lodge are nice and if we had been staying longer we would have taken one of the trails around the lodge. The weather was good and we were able to have dinner on the outside patio. If you want a relaxing and quiet stay this is a great place for that.

The Skamania Lodge is situated in a beautiful area of the Columbia River Gorge and is convenient to almost every attraction in the Gorge and Mt. Hood area. The lodge itself has a stately presence and is near the Columbia River so it offers some wonderful views from the lobby, the grounds, some of the rooms and from the Lodge Dining Room.
The rooms are not luxury rooms but they have a nice rustic appeal and are very clean. Be sure to upgrade to the River View Rooms on a higher floor for the best views of the River and Gorge area. It is disappointing that the rooms do not have balconies. The developers really missed the boat on not including balconies, considering the views and the weather in this part of the country.
Be sure to visit the outdoor hot tub/spa. It is beautifully landscaped and has wonderful views. It is large enough for a number of people and it felt marvelous after a long day of hiking in the Gorge area.
The staff at the hotel are very helpful and there is always a naturalist on duty, who gives great advice on Gorge attractions and hiking,
The dining room staff were attentive, the views were also lovely, and the food was very good.
Overall, we really enjoyed our stay at this lodge.

Room Tip: Upgrade to a River View room on a higher level floor for the best views.

Morindy,

What an insightful review. Thank you. Skamania Lodge was is designed to match the grand lodge’s of the National Park System. Comfortable but not ultra-luxury. A wide array of culinary and recreational options to meet the needs of a wide range of guests. And nestled in one of the most beautiful places in the world. Skamania Lodge is fortunate to have enjoyed 20 wonderful years in the Columbia River Gorge. We glad to have played a positive role in what we hope was a most memorable Summer.

Kind Regards,

Ken Daugherty
