While on a kayaking trip, I stayed in one of the hotel rooms without a patio (I found that there were several nice options of places to sit and enjoy the view and fresh breeze - on the dock or the gazebo). The room was spotlessly clean.There was a small refrigerator in the room and the general store downstairs was... More

Epic fail! If this hotel wants any chance of staying in business, they need to learn a thing or two about demographics! Statistics show that the spending public at large spends on average almost 3 billion on travel every year. In 1996, the average spender who had a pet traveling with them was less than 3 percent. As of 2015,... More

As a pet owner myself we really wanted our hotel to be a pet friendly one, but it wasn't a good fit for us. Like you mentioned before we did accept pets for a short time but unfortunately we ran into too many irresponsible pet owners, and items were being damaged more often than not. Our property is historic and... More

If you want to experience the lower Columbia, the Skamokawa Lodge is the perfect location and setting. The setting is peaceful, centrally located and very comfortable. If you want to get away from it all and at the same time emerse yourself in U.S. history, this is the place!

This was a perfect place for our reunion with six women friends. The accommodations were just right for us. We were in Condo #3. While we enjoyed the local community and kayaking on the river, we also appreciated the comfort of "coming home" to our comfortable rooms, kitchen and private decks overlooking the water. I want to come again and... More

Having been to Skamokawa for several years now, this was my first time staying at the resort. What an amazing surprise to find this gem! The owners and their staff are fantastic and the condo is incredible---especially the jacuzzi tub! The views are great, the beds are comfortable and it's just a short scenic drive to the beach.

Three couples shared Suite #3 in a relatively new building on the property. Others in our group stayed in "hotel rooms" in the historic building which I understand are cozy and clean. We didn't see those rooms. The three suites in our building were great. We had a full kitchen, two water side decks and an easy walk to the... More

Some of bride and grooms family stayed here and found it to be charming! The single rooms are upstairs from their general store which was also charming, if not totally functional as it closed very early and opened very late. There is only one way up to the rooms, very long, steep stairs. The rooms all share a common, narrow... More

No, you will NOT find a huge, but "could be in any major city in the US"-type of room with carpets and two king beds. What you will find are restored hardwood floors, a quaint narrow upstairs hall with an oriental carpet runner it's entire length, and doors to each room opening off of either side. Each room overlooks the... More

We stayed at the Resort for 7 nights in July. What a surprising find! Lance and Shannon were fine hosts and extremely accommodating to any needs.
