Salish Lodge & Spa, Snoqualmie’s iconic Pacific Northwest lodge, is renovating its 84 guestrooms in a $12 million project.

The lodge will remain open to guests during the extensive two-part remodel. The first stage is scheduled for completion in January 2018. The renovation, the largest the property has seen since 1988, is projected to be complete late next spring.

“We are committed to maintaining and honoring the beloved history of Salish while incorporating a more current twist,” said Alan Stephens, general manager of Salish Lodge & Spa.

Conceptualized by Betty Blount of Seattle-based Zena Design Group, the redesigned guestrooms will introduce a contemporary mountainside concept, earthy, current, embodying the Pacific Northwest ambiance with natural textures, warm woods and organic fabrics. New features will include gas fireplaces, and deluxe bathrooms with a soaking tub or oversized showers, with suites offering both.

The corridors will also receive a facelift, with new carpet and paint. Additional updates include revitalizing the spa. Puyallup-based Absher Construction Company is the general contractor on the project.
