Last week I shared some of my favorite photos from our romantic weekend getaway to the Salish Lodge with a Groupon Getaway!
Romantic weekend away at the Salish Lodge
Today I am excited to share more photos and tell you all about our romantic getaway. This weekend away was just what we needed! It was so nice to get out of town and just chill.
The Salish Lodge in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains overlooks the 268 foot Snoqualmie Falls. The Salish Lodge has 84 gorgeous guest rooms that are designed to be a calm oasis.
We were able to choose what type of room we wanted through the Groupon Getaways website. We opted for a room with a king-size bed and a view of the river.
The room also included a giant two-person soaking tub, window seat, and a comfy chair.
My absolute favorite part of the room was the wood-burning fireplace. The hotel had already placed a presto fire log in the fireplace for us along with matches and newspaper to get it started. It was so relaxing curling up in front of the fireplace and just doing nothing.
Check out the giant soaking tub! It was heaven on earth!
A great book, a glass of wine, good music, and absolutely no plans other than relaxing in the tub was the perfect agenda for our first night at the Salish Lodge.
We also enjoyed some truly amazing food on-site at the Salish Lodge.
The Salish Lodge is known for its honey and there is definitely a reason for the acclaim. The lodge has beehives on-site which produce 2,400 pounds of organic honey each year.
The lodge also has its own organic herb and vegetable garden to provide sustainable and organic ingredients for the restaurant and spa.
The Salish Lodge has multiple dining options on-site. We enjoyed The Attic during our first night and it was wonderful.
John had a pizza with arugula, pears, and prosciutto that was divine.
I tried the grilled cheese sandwich with a Salish Honey Ale jam paired with a roasted tomato soup after the waiter told me it was the best-grilled cheese he has had anywhere.
I have to admit it was a pretty darn fantastic grilled cheese. Dessert included the Salish Lodge world-renowned cherry pie!
Tip if you visit the Salish Lodge: one of the best views of Snoqualmie Falls is in The Attic. Ask for a seat by the window and enjoy a gorgeous view of the falls while you enjoy your meal.
Breakfast at the Salish Lodge is simply amazing. You can choose from their country breakfast which includes four courses or just pick specific entrees. We went for the country breakfast and it was wonderful!
The country breakfast includes four courses including the lodges famous steel-cut oats, iconic honey from heaven service where honey is poured high above the plate onto buttery biscuits, fresh pastries and more!
Coffee at the Salish Lodge comes with an entire tray of condiments including white and dark chocolate, fresh cream, and more!
One of the great things about using Groupon while you travel is you can find amazing deals for local attractions and restaurants.
We were able to pick up a couple of Groupon deals for a local brewery and winery. I grew up an hour or so from Snoqualmie so we had the chance to catch up and have dinner with great friends we don't get to see as often as we like.
The Groupon for the Snoqualmie Brewery included beer tasting and a growler of beer to bring home with us. We met up with friends for the beer tasting and had a wonderful dinner. It was so nice being able to pair our getaway with seeing friends.
A trip to Snoqualmie would not be complete without checking Snoqualmie Falls. The falls were absolutely gorgeous during our visit. There was a bit of a foggy mist but it was still so beautiful.
We also found a Groupon for a local winery. We were able to taste test a few local wines before we headed back home.
We truly lucked out with gorgeous weather on our drive home. It was about a four-hour drive and we had the chance to stop along the way and enjoy gorgeous views of the Columbia River.
One of our favorite views is the Wild Horse Monument near Vantage, Washington. You can easily miss these gorgeous sculptures if you don't know where to look. They are running along a ridge far above the Columbia River.

Oh my, every single aspect of this looks divine! I could soo use a romantic getaway and a soak in that hot tub.
That looks like such a relaxing getaway! I'd never heard of the Salish Lodge before but now it's on my must-visit list, for sure.

I definitely would love to relax on that bed - looks comfy to me.

Sounds like a nice stay. the fireplace looks inviting.
This sounds like a wonderful getaway. I'd love to go and enjoy time with my husband there.
I love groupon big time and they have some lovely deals, I have been planning some weekend getaways and using groupon to find some deals. The Salish lodge sounds like an awesome place to visit and relax
What a very romantic and relaxing getaway indeed! Salish Lodge really offers the best out there! Great experience.
How romantic! Ive looked at the groupon deals but never actually took advantage of them. I really should!
I love having a fireplace in a room during travel. Man oh man, can those really toast up a room..quickly. It's a very nice touch for the Lodge to have their own line of toiletries. Very cool touches overall, like the honey.
Looking at your photos makes me wish I'm somewhere having my R&R as well. I need it badly! 🙂 I do check Groupon from time to time. Will check it again later.
That tub looks so inviting! I've used Groupon Getaways a few times now, but just for international trips. We'll have to try something local soon.
Ooooooo definitely looks like y'all had a fabulous getaway!!!! Totally loving the fireplace!! Nothing more romantic to me than that 😉
I love seeing all of your journeys and new adventures together. This one sounded like a lot of fun!
It looks like you guys had a great time. I love the picture of the horses! I am hooked on Groupons. I always see something pop up in my email that I want and before I know it, I'm purchasing something else on their site. I've always wanted to try one of their Getaways since I love to travel and tend to plan a lot of trips but I haven't gotten around to it. I feel a bit more comfortable knowing that you had a good experience.
This looks like a wonderful place to stay! The room is fantastic!
Looks like you had a wonderful time. I adore that tub!!! I book hotels for conferences a lot and choose at least a 3 star as minimum for less hassles. I think the last time I stayed somewhere, I could have complimentary bottled water, which saved me time from having to go to the store or try the mini bar.
Looks like an epic spot to visit for a bit of relaxation. Love that you used a Groupon to go there. I always forget about that website and then kick myself for missing out on awesome deals (like this one, for instance). Glad you had a time!

Ohhh that sounds like a lovely Getaway. I'm sure Groupon has some really cool places you can get away to in the states, right?
My husband and I are in dire need of a Romantic Getaway! Looks like you had a wonderful time! =)
A garden tub big enough for two is totally romantic! How cool that you saved by using a Groupon!
Looks like an amazing getaway! I would love to slip into that big tub in the hotel room!! Soo nice!

What a great looking getaway! The room and the tub looked very romantic! I love the pictures of the wild horses statues! I love the idea of groupon getaways. You get to visit places at a great price! Love me a deal!
What a gorgeous place! Hubs and I are always looking for deals close to home that allow us to stay in the Jacuzzi tub room!

1) Tub? WOW!! I want to get in that! I really love the horse monument. That is so neat and you're so lucky that you got to take a nice trip. I am so jealous you are about to go to Bali!
Wow that lodge looks amazing! That will definitely be on my list of places to check out. Soaking tubs, fireplace, and a nice breakfast is the perfect weekend getaway without our kids!!
I would be so tempted to spend my entire time in the tub and not go anywhere else! Looks like an amazing hotel room.
Wow, what a beautiful place to stay. I'm always so thrilled when I find great deals on great places through Groupon. The room looks great (I would never get out of that tub...aaaah) and the food and stunning views are making me long for a weekend trip. Glad you enjoyed a nice break!
I have been meaning to get on groupon and look at some getaways. I have heard nothing but great things about the deals and prices found on there,
I love your husbands shirt lol! Such a cool place, very classy!
Groupon is absolutly amazoing.you can find good deals actually.i never tried a travsl.with a them but i havs heard a lot about service.absolutly awesome.
Absolutely beautiful! The bed and the fireplace! I am in love. I love Groupon too! They usually have some really good deals on there. Looks like you and the hubby really enjoyed yourselves.
I used to love Groupon but then form whatever reason I stopped using it. Your getaway looks lovely. I mean that tub alone! And that shot of the blue sky is gorgeous.
This is my kind of getaway. So relaxing and very close to nature. I love your photography style!
Being a geographical idiot, I had to look up where the Cascade Mountains are, once I did I could really put your post in perspective! Everything seems so beautiful, I think I would love to go there. You are my kind of traveler, I always try to find Groupons too for where we go. We haven't used them as a Getaway yet, but have been looking. They should pay you, you are a great advertisement!
You had me at 'romantic getaway!' My husband and I so desperately need one...if only for a night or two! I need to check out these deal on Groupon!
It looks like you had a blast. I love those pictures: the food, the nature. I would love to visit one day
Who doesn’t need a getaway like this? The bed and the bathtub are really inviting!!!
This sounds and looks like you both had an amazing beautiful time indeed. I will have to check out Groupon's website. Everything looks gorgeous and so romantic. Thanks so much for sharing.
The room looks calming and refreshing. The views outdoor are even much better when you explore them.
I like groupon and I bought some products from them, though I never try the travel yet. I love water falls and that's my favourite attractions.
I have considered using Groupon when i want to escape/runaway. Just havent really given it much thought. I never knew anyone how had redeemed something like this. It looks stunning and so very calm. You would have to drag me outta that place!!! the tub my gosh!!! I think i better go check out what they have lol
The Salish Lodge looks GORGEOUS! A wood burning fireplace in the room?! That's my kind of getaway. Sounds like you had a greta time <3

This sounds like a nice getaway. Very romantic and the scenery is lovely.
This getaway looks amazing! I really could use a nice weekend away!! Thanks for the post!

Looks like a very nice place with lots to do. I'm sure you really enjoyed your time off.
Looks like a lovely getaway. I have never used Groupon, and didn't know until recently about the trips! So cool!
The accommodations look very nice, those falls look beautiful.
Everything looks so luxurious! The fireplace and the tub are selling points alone, but then you followed up with the beautiful scenery. I'll definitely have to add this to the list of places to visit 😀
That looks like such an incredible place! That would be a great romantic outing for my boyfriend and I.
It looks like you had a wonderful getaway. I have used Groupon for restaurants and that is it. I will have to check into a getaway.
What a great getaway!!! I have seen quite a few posts about Groupon Getaways lately and this is really making me want to travel!!
Salish Lodge looks wonderful! I have to say, I'm really excited that Groupon is offering deals on travel now. We don't travel nearly as much as we'd like - mainly because it's so expensive.
I would go just for the white and dark chocolate served with coffee! And that breakfast? Looks delicious! What a cozy suite and that bathroom is so lush! Throw in a wild horse monument and one lone chicken and I'm all in! Looks like a great place to visit.
Looks like you had a great weekend away! I love how the lodge had a fire going for you when you checked in...how awesome. I'll definitely keep your suggestions in mind if we ever get out that way.
Robin (Masshole Mommy)
That sounds like a lovely place to stay! I would love the chance to stay there someday!
The bedroom looked really cozy and convenient. I love the ambiance in this lodge!
Wow! That looks like a relaxing getaway in a beautiful setting. Groupon deals in Denmark don't look anything like that... I wish Groupon would step up its game over here!

Salish Lodge seems like a nice place to stay. I love the bed - looks very very comfortable and it's great to know that there are so many things that one can do. I'm very excited about their coffee; you got me at white & dark chocolate!
Aisha Kristine Chong
Looking at that bed - it makes me want to jump right on it - it must be super comfy!
I am JEALOUS of how many outings and vacations you guys go on! Seriously, how do you do it and please teach me your ways. p.s. is that a wood fired pizza?!?! My fav.
