Sun Mountain Lodge Review
The stunning North Cascades and all its attractions are the stars of this outdoor-oriented resort set 3,000-feet up in the foothills, with spectacular mountain views and a range of activities that make it a year-round destination, whether the peaks are covered in snow or wildflowers. The Mt. Gardner and Mt. Robinson buildings provide the best accommodations, with fireplaces and private patios or balconies. Mt. Robinson rooms have jetted tubs, and double doors above them slide open so guests can enjoy the scenery while they soak. (Only four rooms in the main lodge include TVs– the ones without a view.) Spacious luxury cabins skirting the shores of Lake Patterson are also available. The property offers outdoor pools and hot tubs, tennis courts, 100 miles of hiking, horseback riding, boating on Patterson Lake, and skiing trails, plus special events—like the barbecue Cowboy Dinner or Breakfast, to which guests can ride on horseback or in a horse-drawn wagon or sleigh. The upscale Dining Room serves fine Pacific Northwest fare while Wolf Creek Bar and Grill is more casual.
