Salish Lodge & Spa—to some, better-known as the Great Northern Hotel from both Twin Peaks and Twin Peaks: The Return—is getting its first big remodel since before Special Agent Dale Cooper came to town.
The Snoqualmie hotel’s $12 million remodel, its biggest since 1988, will overhaul its 84 guestrooms. The concept by Betty Blount of Seattle’s Zena Design Group takes some of that northwest mountain-lodge feeling that earned it a role in both the original and new Twin Peaks series and injects a little modern into it.
Renderings of the new look show more muted colors and more minimalist gas fireplace, attached to a stone accent wall that better integrates a television. The new look is accented by very northwest material and decor choices, like a wood-round table and an exposed-grain and textile headboard.
It’s a little less mountain-man than the current look—but a little sleeker.
In the bathrooms, existing jetted tubs have been replaced by either an oversized shower or soaking tub. Suites have both options.
The remodel will also upgrade the spa and expand the women’s locker room.
The lodge will stay open during the remodel, which they expect to be complete in Spring of 2018.
Salish Lodge & Spa first opened in 1916 as Snoqualmie Falls Lodge, and was given its current name in 1988. It’s been owned by the Muckleshoot Indian Tribe for about a decade.
