“Don't let the lack of TVs scare you”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

I thought the lack of TVs would throw off the trip, but it didn't. The food in the restaurants was great, and the lodge was worth every penny. Didn;t go horseback riding, but went down to the Twisp farmer's market to look around. Small, but good.

Sun Mountain lodge is located about 10 miles outside of Winthrop, with nothing around but mountains, lakes and deer. It is just amazing. The ultimate getaway from people & traffic of big cities. I highly recommend this place.

Positives:
* Excellent, quiet location set in the heart of nature
* Amazing views of the valley (on 3 sides of the lodge)
* Nice pool and outdoor jacuzzi
* Not crowded at all
* Very nice restaurants (one fine dining and one regular, with some vegetarian options)
* Nice forest-lodge feel to the whole place
* Comfortable and modern rooms (though they still maintain the forest-charm).

Negatives:
* None!

Excellent place. Go there. Well worth the price. We paid about $220 including breakfast + tips.

Room Tip: Higher floors have better views!

Sun Mountain Lodge is a great place to stop while in the Cascades. Our Mt. Robinson room was large, not luxurious, but very comfortable. Nice views abound on this property. The food in the restaurant was quite good with a nice selection of wines. One minor problem, there is no real help available with luggage unless you allow an elderly woman to assist. We had a lot of luggage with a room a few steps up to a second floor, but only a few steps. All in all, we liked it very much and recommend a stop there.

Came here for our 10th anniversary. We had a room away from the main lodge building, on the 2nd floor. It was quite large, with a great view, fireplace, jetted tub and refrigerator. Spacious bathroom. Due to bad weather, we did not get a chance to go horseback riding or hiking (next time), so cannot comment on either of those activities. But there was a lot of deer in the area, which was a nice treat.

PROS: We found the personnel to be friendly and professional. Room was immaculately clean, and the bed very comfortable.

CONS: Fireplace is more for looks than anything else; Would be nice to have a microwave oven in the room (there's a place for one to fit near the sink). It's a bit spendy, especially if you opt for the upgraded room and/or plan to eat there. (Fortunately, there's good food down in Winthrop.)

Room Tip: Second floor has great views.

My husband and I won a weekend for 2, complete with breakfast from the Seattle Mariners and stayed on October 12th and 13th. What a wonderful relaxing weekend. We stayed in the Gardner Guest Rooms - complete with king size bed, gas fireplace and private deck on the second floor. We weren't aware before we stayed that we would be without a TV, but it was actually a nice surpise. The bed was extremely comfortable, linens and bath items were exceptional. When the door key stuck in the lock, the maintenance folks came immediately. My only complaint with the room would be the lack of a microwave (it did have a refrigerator, coffee maker and sink). Complimentary wireless in the room was a plus. Hot tub and pool were nicely maintained and had a spectacular view. Hiking trails leading out and around the property were well maintained and scenic. We appreciated the variety of lengths (we hiked 3.5 miles) and the expertise of the activities person in directing us (with a detailed map) on the routes. I can't say enough good things about the food in the dining room. Breakfasts were outstanding - I had the wild mushroom omelet one day, and the smoked salmon scramble (both with egg beaters) the next day. We had dinner one evening in the dining room - the chicken stuffed with local goat cheese and spinach was wonderful as was the special my husband had - short ribs, chicken and chorizo. Presentations were beautiful. The house soup - chicken curry was the best I've ever tasted. His organic greens salad with local charcuterie was amazing - I am not a fan of duck but the duck breast with his salad was not greasy - actually perfect. For dessert he had the apple pie with homemade vanilla ice cream and I had the trio of sorbets. The cookies with the sorbet reminded me of the taxidermy horns on the lodge walls but whatever?! Service at the front desk and in the dining room was friendly and attentive. We will be going back during the winter to experience that season and plan to try out the Patterson Lake Cabins.

We visited Sun Mountain Lodge the weekend of September 21st. Sadly, the lodge was surrounded by smoke from the forest fires nearby. We witnessed three weddings on the grounds. One would think that the management would provide perks for the guests: perhaps a discount on the room or a dinner; but no, none were available according to the people working at the front desk. Will we return again? Not sure.
