Staycation O’Clock

Last week Kamel and I dropped Gabe off at my parents’ and headed over to Snoqualmie Falls and Salish Lodge for an overnight and some pregnant spa-ing. If you would like a quintessential pacific northwest hotel experience it is 100% worth it to spend a night at Snoqualmie Falls.

Also it should be noted that their restaurant is one of the best I have ever experienced EVER. And it overlooks a massive waterfall! And they have chocolate souffle, of which I greatly indulged!

Also the beds are magnificent even for giant pregnant me. So, here is a totally unsponsored plug. Do some getawaying and some pampering and put this one on your list.

I love you forever and ever pacific northwest. And I will never not appreciate the lush.

You know the walk up is serious serious serious business when I tie my sweatshirt around my waist. It took me hours to stop looking like a tomato and Kamel had to assist me by pushing me up some of the bigger hills. Lord have mercy.

Cut to: breakfast the next day because 85% of this staycation was eating.

 Kamel’s breakfast wins ALL of the games.

How have you been indulging lately? Where and when have you been able to take a tiny chunk of time out of the usual just for yourself? If you haven’t, you should! (Mid week hotel rates are cheaper! Also playing hookie for a day and staying in bed is also beneficial for health and happiness.)

  1. Oh my god that looks amazing. *adds to wanderlust list of places to go*

    We did a tiny staycation for our 5-year wedding anniversary earlier this month. We stayed at a local B&B we’d always wanted to try, located on a street we used to live on. It was close enough to our current home that we could dog-sit our own dogs by popping out and coming back real quick! And there were fluffy robes. So basically, A+.

  2. GORGEOUS. I have a long list of quintessential NW places to stay including Lake Quinault Lodge, Lake Crescent Lodge, Paradise Lodge and now … Salish Lodge.

  3. It’s small, but I took a 20 minute walk for a break today and walked along a pretty quiet tree lined Street and it was so so wonderful.
    I am also planning a mental health day, so so SO important for my job, for next week probably bc I need a day in bed like WOAH. I do not hesitate taking those. So glad you had fun at the lodge!

  4. I actually got married at Salish Lodge in fall 2011 and it was magical. I agree that the food is absolutely spectacular and the spa was wonderful. I can’t recommend it highly enough. We hope to return for an anniversary someday (although we’re presently on the east coast). Miss the Pacific NW terribly!
