A wonderful property with a Frank Lloyd Wright feel. Quiet, friendly, clean, great food & views, on-site Zip-line & golf courses, in the middle of the great outdoors....:) Highly recommended... Quiet, comfortable, friendly and off the beaten path, perfect unwind and recharge location!

Wildchinook,

Thank you for sharing a few thoughts regarding your recent stay. Your Frank Lloyd Wright thought is spot on in that he strove diligently to blend architecture with nature. Our team strives daily to ensure that we are good custodians of the Lodge and the special area in which we are so fortunate to reside. We hope to welcome you back soon.

Kind Regards,

Ken Daugherty
General Manager

We recently visited Skamania and found it to be one of the most friendly resorts! The staff everywhere was incredibly helpful and friendly. During check in the front desk staff that wasn't working with me was helping to entertain and engage our young daughters. We enjoyed the room, but the grounds of the resort are really the key attraction. The large grassy yard is the perfect place for mom and dad to relax with a glass of wine while the kids run around and play. The fire pit and s'mores were so much fun to end the day with.
Sometimes when traveling with kids you find a great place for the kids, but the parents have to sacrifice something, I feel like Skamania does a wonderful job of providing a quality experience for all, but making the kids feel very welcome. I would feel just as happy to visit the resort for a mom's get away weekend or as a couple. Nicely done Skamania Lodge!

My husband enjoyed the golf course which is on site and we wish we could have taken advantage of the zip line but our children were too small. We will certainly be back.

Room Tip: Choose a river view room, it's definitely worth it!

VisitorfromSEA,

Thank you for passing along your insight. As busy parents ourselves, we too appreciate being able to enjoy a nice libation as the kids stay entertained. We know how precious this time can be… We hope to have the pleasure of watching your family grow as we have had the good fortune to do so often. It’s not uncommon to see generations of family members gathered on our lawn. We hope that this is the case for you and all of our guests who so kindly support Skamania.

Kind Regards,

Ken Daugherty
General Manager

The setting and interior of this lodge speak of so much potential. The bar and main sitting area have a fabulous view. But the management is mediocre and it colors your stay. The kitchen does not know how to handle special diets. Imagine a lentil curry with pasta AND potatoes. The rooms are spacious and pleasant but lack some basic amenities - no refrigerator, no dvd player. And for my husband and I, no cell service. All in all not what I hoped.

Dear Patty Portland,

We are pleased that you enjoyed the interior of the lodge and the views but dissapointed that you did not enjoy your meal and felt our rooms lacked basic amenities. The dish that you described as a lentil curry with pasta AND potatoes was actually lentils, tofu and basmati rice and has been well received by many guests. Although we do not have microwave ovens, and refrigerators in all of our rooms, we have refrigerators in all riverside guest rooms and our suites have microwave ovens as well. Please let us know when making a reservation and we will be sure to book you in a room that has the amenities that you require. I'm not sure which cell provider you use but I want you to know that we have an enhanced signal with Verizon and we are adding an AT&T metrocell as well.

We wish you a wonderful summer and hope to see you again in the very near future.

Sincerely,

Ken

Comfortable lodge; however, my expectation was that a river view room would have a river view, not an inch of river visible on occasion. The lobby was large and pleasant enough for sitting and looking out the huge windows, but our room was small and very "motel-ish" in decor, size, and amenities. There were several people in attendance for a sales meeting, so the bar did get rather crowded later in the evening. The restaurant, on the other hand, was almost empty. I would recommend this lodge to families traveling down the Columbia River.

We always enjoy going to Skamania Lodge. We actually went zip lining this trip and enjoyed it very much!! We have stayed at Skamania 4 other times. The view, the service in the restaurants and the location just can't be beat!!

We will be back!!
