What a place it is very MAGICAL Like being on the Movie setbfor THE SOUND OF MUSIC.
Each ofbthe hotels guest rooms have a view of some of the most beautiful scenery ever.
The rooms are very nicely furnitured and comportable. The staff is very proffesional and
helpful with all guests needs no matter how big or small. The resturants are excellent with
outstading views. The wait staff is great - ask for KELLEN To be your server he loves his work and
enjoys making everone happy he is OUTSTANDING -

I visited Sun Mountain with my dad for a little father-daughter bonding weekend and it totally exceeded my expectations. Based on Sun Mountain's website, I had pretty high ones too. The scenery is beautiful and we went in the perfect time of year to go—Late May when the weather is low 70's. We hiked Patterson Mountain a few times, rode horses for an hour and did the wagon ride cowboy dinner. The cowboy dinner had delicious food, a cute set up with picnic tables and a country singer. The hotel restaurant had great local beer and wine. We also traveled to the touristy Winthrop city for some shopping. Be sure to grab a beer at the old beer hall. Fantastic trip. If you love outdoors and exploring, this lodge is the perfect place to stay. We're already planning another trip next year.

First class hotels are as yet lacking around North Cascades National Park, except for Sun Mountain Lodge. This was partly by design, by the NGOs that established this park in "The American Alps." Not wanting over development, which plagues many national parks and ski areas, they even excluded the North Cascades Scenic Highway and most of what was National Forest from the Park itself. The Methow Valley, below Sun Mountain, is the eastern gateway to the park, but its "Early Winters" ski development even excludes lifts, and instead has become the best cross-country ski area on the continent. Its trails are equally used in the summer and the Scenic Highway is actually run by the National Park, even though it's technically a "Recreation Area." High alpine Wilderness Areas on the Forest adjacent to the Park provide the views from the lodge, and the trails surrounding it are run by the Methow Valley Sports Trail Association, which provides the cross-country skiing, and three members of the US Olympic team.

Room Tip: Patterson Lake cabins just below, and run by the Lodge, are handy to both swimming, canoeing, and a...

We had a great time and plan to go back. Room: we stayed in a standard 2 Q bed room in the main lodge. We took advantage of their three nights for the price of two plus free breakfast Spring special. The room had a large dresser, small table w/two chairs, and a safe, but no TV, micro, or refrigerator. The bathroom was large and had extra touches like a full length mirror and two bathrobes, which we used when we went to the jacuzzi. The large closet easily accommodated our suitcases and large totes. Breakfast: We were able to order any entree of our choice off he menu. Our free breakfast included in the Spring special consisted of our choice of coffee or tea, plus juice, tax and gratuity. My husband had steak and eggs, and I had the oatmeal service. The food was very good, but the sweeping view of the valley was fantastic. We enjoyed watching the swallows, turkey vultures, and Western Tanagers. Amenities: The lodge has a game room with two pool tables, a Foosball table, and paddle tennis. It also had an onsite gallery, fitness room, and reading room w/ a TV (bring your own books unless you enjoy reading textbooks) tennis courts and other extras, We spent our time hiking and relaxing. Kevin in the activity shop recommended a hike that fit our requirements and loaned me a backpack because I forgot mine. There are mosquitoes by Beaver Pond, so bring repellant. The person who recommended the place to me spoke very highly of their horses and horse trails and lake activities.

Sun Mountain Lodge was having a great Mother's Day special on lodging with brunch included, which was SO great. The price was so reasonable, they accommodated our early check-in request, and our room had a great balcony with a beautiful view. The customer service was great. We had our 2-year-old son with us, and accommodations were great for him as well. They have a playground, and we went to the horse corral so he could check out the horses. We went on a short hike around Beaver Pond, and spent some time in Winthrop. Our stay was short but there were plenty of activities to keep us busy- no WiFi and no TV did not hinder our ability to enjoy ourselves. I think we ate 3 meals at the lodge facilities, and they were all GREAT.

Room Tip: If you can stay in the Mt. Robinson Lodging, that is the BEST. I've stayed there before and it...

I love Sun Mountain Lodge. I've stayed in the Mt. Robinson and Gardner rooms, but my absolute favorite place to stay is in the cabins on Patterson Lake. The cabins are beautiful, comfortable little homes that contain a full kitchen, a separate full-sized dining room, a living room with a river-rock faced gas-burning fireplace, and a separate bedroom. They are beautifully appointed in a rustic theme and since I first stayed in one of these cabins I have never stayed anywhere else on the property. The housekeeping and maintenance staff, Lori and Dave, are the nicest people you'll ever meet, but I didn't expect anything less because of the experiences I've had working with the people at the front desk, reservations, ski shop, gift shop, spa, Wolf Creek Bar and Grill, the restaurant, Group Services, and Sales. This place is comfortable, quiet, and the staff takes good care of you when you need them. I visit here annually and plan to continue doing so for several more years...

There's one odd little thing to note... I don't sleep well, or sometimes not at all it seems, and I can sleep here, in the cabins.

Room Tip: Choose a Patterson Lake cabin if you're traveling with your family.

I adore this lodge during the snow season, its magnificent setting with magical views in every direction, architecture that expresses the spirit of this magnificent place, warm and friendly fire in the huge fireplace in the lounge. If you love wilderness and want to see art and nature in perfect balance go here. The lodge expresses the spirit of the place exactly, timeless and authentic, and the staff is very helpful and friendly.

The rooms are very comfortable and restful. The dining room has a spectacular view of the valley and sitting there is a moment of grace. The bar next door also is very nice, I find meals at this lodge a bit overrated and overpriced, though, but have paid willingly because of the very special setting. After dark there is not much of the valley view to enjoy, though.

We have been coming here for years, it never disappoints. There are limitless things to do here, both outdoors and in, just glorious.
