A wonderful retreat from city life. Restaurant on main level is a bit upscale (reservations recommended), however climb the stairs to "The Attic" for a cozy, warm winter evening, with beautiful sunset views of the Cascade mountain range and the falls. Tasty happy hour fare and acoustic music on Fridays. The Lodge also has a luxurious spa - mmmm!
