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.
The “Farm to Fork” culinary program is underway at Skamania Lodge! Come and enjoy the local flavor. We have partnered with local growers and fruit companies to provide the the fresh, organic produce from lush farmland of The Columbia River Gorge. We receive a weekly list from local farmers and choose what we will buy for the week.
On August 13, 2011 almost two hundred gathered in Stevenson to commemorate the 25th Anniversary of the National Scenic Area. A recognition reception to honor the contributions of key senators, congressman, governors, treaty tribes and individuals who were integral in the passing of the National Scenic Area legislation, was held at the Skamania Lodge. The Lodge, partially funded by specific appropriations in the Act, served as the perfect example of how the Act was written to support local communities while protecting resources.
