Anniversary Visit to Skamania Lodge in Washington

My husband Tom and I married in November 1996 and spent our short honeymoon at Skamania Lodge. We truly enjoyed a wonderful meal and our Fireside room after our drive to the Lodge. The following morning, I decided to surprise Tom by building a cozy fire. Unfortunately, I didn't open the damper, and Tom woke up to a room filled with smoke! We quickly opened the damper and aired out the room, and alerted the staff that we were not burning down the lodge. It is a funny memory, and I doubt I'll ever live it down. We're planning on returning to the Lodge to celebrate our 17th anniversary next month. I was glad to read that the Fireside rooms now have gas fireplaces....it's much more likely that we can enjoy a fire without pyrotechnics!

This lodge is one of the friendliest places I know. Everyone seems to genuinely enjoy working there and doing whatever they can to assist the guests.
