While the origins of this holiday are shrouded in mystery, we do know that February has long been celebrated as the month of romance. Test your knowledge of Valentine’s fun facts…
The baking of gingerbread houses has long been a Christmas holiday tradition. At Skamania Lodge in the heart of Columbia River Gorge – 45 minutes from Portland, Oregon, we have an annual tradition of creating a holiday gingerbread house for our guests, local residents and employees to enjoy.
Recently, Skamania Lodge hosted an event where local meeting planners were able to come to lodge and be artists for the day. The instructors were from Vine Gogh Artist Bar and Studio, based in Portland, Oregon.
During our outdoor paining session, Vine Gogh’s art teacher provided step by step instruction on painting the spectacular view of the Columbia River Gorge as seen from the Lodge's front lawn. It took each of our participants approximately 2.5 hours to paint our spectacular view and each person left with their painting.
Skamania Lodge, near Portland, Oregon, is thrilled to be part of an exciting new culinary series recently launched by our hotel management company - Destination Hotels & Resorts.
