Fodor's Review

This warm, woodsy lodge on an expansive, verdant swath of forest and meadows impresses with a multitude of windows overlooking in the surrounding mountains and Gorge, an outstanding array of recreational facilities, and handsome, Pacific Northwest–chic accommodations, many with fireplaces and all with views. The upscale-rustic interior features Montana slate tiles, Native American artwork, and an immense wood-burning fireplace. "Skamania" is the Chinook word for "swift water," and the lodge's 175 acres are just a stone's throw from the Columbia River. Facilities include a well-respected 18-hole golf course, 4 miles of hiking trails, large indoor pool, a grass volleyball court, outdoor tennis court, and a dramatic zip-line course with commanding views of the Gorge. Staff will pack you a lunch if you're going out for the day. The Waterleaf Spa and Fitness Center offers a full slate of soothing treatments, and the resort's two restaurants are some of the top dining experiences in the region.
