Guide Review - Skamania Lodge
Skamania Lodge, located in Stevenson, Washington, offers stunning Columbia River Gorge views, excellent dining options, and a relaxing and rejuvenating environment.
The wings of the lodge wrap around an expansive outdoor lounging area to frame a fabulous Columbia River view. You'll find plenty of places to relax and enjoy the scenery with a beverage and good company. Rustic Adirondack chairs line Skamania's tiered porch, surround a large fire pit, and are scattered around the lodge's big green lawn. If you prefer to enjoy the vista from indoors, the grand fireplace room, located off of Skamania's lobby, is filled with comfy, Craftsman-style seating. Both of the lodge's restaurants are also situated to take advantage of the great river view.
