Interaction with guests
If I am at the upper lodge you will not see or hear me (unless you want to! I'm always up for a glass of wine!). I have a separate entrance and out door sitting area that cannot be seen from lower lodge. Breakfast the first morning is delivered at nine am in a corner stairwell that is completely private from both living areas.
Other things to note
If you are coming from the west or the airport you must stop to see Snoqualmie Falls on your way here! It is spectacular night and day and well worth the ten mins off the highway.
Also stop for groceries in North Bend exit 31 as there are not full grocery stores in our area. While you are there have very yummy salmon Quinoa or woodsman grilled romaine & steak salad at the North Bend bar and grill. Or The Commonwealth & Drew Bru exit 53 for a yummy burger. If you are heading here from the east stop in Cle Elum for groceries. If you plan on eating dinner out there is a restaurant list for you but most are a 30 min drive unless its ski season, then you will have many choices at the pass, 10 mins west of the lodge. Year round fine dining and wine tasting is 20 mins away at suncadia resort, my fave is Swiftwater Cellars.
I KEEP THE SPA VERY CLEAN AND IF IT IS CLOUDY OR MILKY WHEN YOU CHECK OUT YOU WILL LOSE YOUR DAMAGE DEPOSIT IN FULL. BODY LOTIONS, OILS, BODY FLUIDS OR OTHER SUBSTANCES WILL POLLUTE THE HOT TUB MAKING IT UNSANITARY AND I WILL HAVE TO DRAIN, CLEAN, REFILL & REPLACE THE FILTERS.
DOGS: Dogs are most welcome if they are housebroken but you must clean up after them and never leave them alone in the lodge unless they are crated. Dogs are not allowed on the beds or couches, there is a large dog bed provided for you in the family room. If you bring clean blankets and completely cover all bedding and your dog will stay on it they can sleep on the bed. There is a $60 fee if dog hair is found on the bedding or couch covers.
KIDS: We are not child proofed.
You are solely responsible for the safety of your child while at the lodge. Children can never be left alone at any time in any part of the lodge or property. Children count as guests and the extra guest fee applies to them. You will need to bring a diaper container and take dirty diapers with you to dispose of them for sanitary reasons.
SMOKING:There is no smoking in the lodge or any where on the property except the on the gravel driveway & a can of water must be used to extinguish cigarettes, joints or cigars to prevent forest fires.
HOT TUB: please use hot tub towels not the bath towels, don't add more water to the tub and rinse off before using if you have body lotions on.
Be kind to the wildlife, the lodge, nature and each other while enjoying yourself!
