Skamania Lodge's Latest Investment: $6 Million in Room Renovations, Updated Fitness Center

The Columbia River Gorge-based Lodge improved 254 rooms and unveiled an overhauled fitness center

STEVENSON, Wash. – December 11, 2018 – Skamania Lodge, A Destination Hotel, invested $6 million in lodge-wide room renovations that feature new art, chairs, sofas and carpeting, along with a fitness center transformation that includes all new equipment and state-of-the-art Peloton bikes. 

“We’re always looking for ways to give our guests the best possible experience at Skamania Lodge,” said General Manager Ken Daugherty. “This investment is just the latest in our efforts to give visitors the quintessential Pacific Northwest and Columbia River Gorge experience.”

Skamania Lodge rooms were improved with finishing touches both big and small. From aesthetics like Columbia River Gorge-inspired artwork to new chairs and sofas, the rooms have a modern look and feel that echo the Pacific Northwest. Detailed, artful maps of the Gorge, as well as pictorials showcasing hikes in both Oregon and Washington make guests feel a part of the landscape that surrounds them.  

In addition to the room renovations, Skamania Lodge also offers a revamped indoor fitness center, with all new equipment and free weights, along with world-class Pelton bikes that allow for live on-demand cycling classes. 

“The fitness center is now arguably the best in the region, offering some of the best equipment on the market,” Daugherty said. “The new Peloton bikes are top-of-the-line and we are really excited to provide this new modern spin offering.”
