March 29, 2011 · 5:06 PM
Named most romantic place by Valley Record readers in the 2011 Best of the Valley poll, the Salish Lodge and Spa in Snoqualmie has a number of romantic locations, according to Manager John Murphy.
One, the Dining Room's Table No. 5, is known as "the proposal table," earning that nickname thanks to its cozy, private setting overlooking Snoqualmie Falls.
Guestrooms are equipped with a wood-burning fireplace and a jetted tub for two. The Fireside Treatment Room in The Spa is a private room where staff offer couples massages and treatment. Guests can also request a “Romantic Night In" treatment, which includes fresh rose petals and a bottle of sparkling wine to ignite the romantic flame.
Besides enjoying the amenities at the lodge such as The Spa, enjoying northwest cuisine and libations in The Dining Room and The Attic, relaxing in front of the fireplace in The Library or shopping in The Country Store, Murphy said staff always encourage guests to get outside and enjoy the region's spectacular surroundings.
"There are terrific hiking trails that begin from the upper parking lot and take you along the scenic Tokul River Trail Hike in the Snoqualmie Forest," he said. "We also offer bicycles for our guests to take out when the weather turns the corner into the lovely spring and summer seasons. We also offer a robust menu of outdoor adventures and activities from biking to hiking, fishing and more by partnering with local vendors. Our front desk staff is always ready to help our guests find the perfect adventure."
When to book
Big weekends include New Year’s Eve, Valentine’s Day (and the surrounding weekends) and any three day weekend such as Labor Day and Memorial Day.
"We definitely recommend booking about one month out for those dates," Murphy said.
