The Lodge atop the falls!

Cozy lobby ready for the holidays!

Now I know what heaven feels like – this bed!

The “bath butler” makes taking a bath in the jetted tub that much better.

The sound of the crackling fire in our room atop the rushing falls is pure bliss!

Enjoying all the perks of the spa level.

Never want a latte served any other way.

Highs & Lows

  • THE most comfortable hotel bed and pillows I have ever slept on.

  • Upgrading to the Spa Level is definitely worth it. The Spa’s amenities and treatments are world-class.

  • The wood burning fireplaces are a great touch and will make you never want to leave your cozy room.

  • Food at both of the Lodge’s restaurants is fantastic!

  • If you want to check out the onsite beehives, I recommend coming during the spring or summer. They were not in operation for the winter months.

Important Bits

  • Type

    Boutique hotel and spa

  • Vibe

    If “The Great Northern” from Twin Peaks had a seductively sophisticated sister...

  • Location

    Only a 30 minute drive from Seattle, Salish is the perfect getaway. As a landmark filming location of the TV show Twin Peaks, it is situated directly atop the beautiful Snoqualmie Falls and very close to other iconic filming Twin Peaks locations.

  • Rooms


  • Music

    Music perfectly fit the ambiance of the hotel. The low key holiday tunes in the public spaces and tranquil jazz playing on our radio when we got to our room were very relaxing.

  • Year Opened

    Originally built in 1916, The Snoqualmie Falls Lodge became The Salish Lodge & Spa in 1988 when it was completely remodeled. The hotel has been updated several times since then as well.

  • Designed By

    Bristal Design Group

  • Pool/Gym

    Property has a fitness center but no pool. The spa level is definitely worth checking out though! The soaking baths and sauna were the perfect escape from the wet Pacific Northwest winter.

  • Restaurant

    Yes! The main dining room has amazing views of the Snoqualmie Falls. Definitely recommend trying their legendary 4 course Country Breakfast. It will keep you full all day!

  • Bar

    Yes! The Attic is a cozy bar and restaurant in the hotel offering amazing artisanal pizzas and drinks. The cocktails featuring Salish’s homemade honey are delicious!

  • Minibar

    No minibar.

  • Children

    Leave them! The in-room two-person jetted spa tubs and wood fireplaces are as romantic as it gets.

  • Price

    Moderate but based on the amenities and room (probably the most comfortable hotel bed I’ve ever slept in). It was worth it!!
