The highly anticipated Lodge at Suncadia celebrates its grand opening with Overwhelming response


New Restaurant, Bar, Event Spaces and Amenities Unlike Anywhere in the Pacific Northwest


        Cle Elum, Wash. (April 28, 2008) – Suncadia, a new year-round mountain resort community located on 6,400-acres just 80 miles east of Seattle on the sunny side of the Cascade Mountains, is excited to announce the grand opening of the highly anticipated Lodge at Suncadia - a 254-room destination hotel offering a unique combination of activities and amenities that make it unlike any other resort in the Pacific Northwest. 


This grand opening is a very exciting milestone, as The Lodge is considered the heart and soul of Suncadia Village and comes with so many unique amenities that create new and memorable experiences for guests,” said Gregg Harper, general manager of resort operations at Suncadia.  “We now have a premier resort that can accommodate both leisure travelers and groups of various sizes, and offer exceptional service and amenities including food and wine, a destination spa, 18,000-square foot fitness facility and year-round recreational opportunities.  This resort is the first of its kind in Washington.”


Perched on a 250-foot bluff overlooking the Cle Elum River Valley, the 380,000-square foot lodge offers dramatic mountain peak views including Mount Baldy, Domerie Peak and the Cascade Range.  The architectural design is a contemporary and luxurious adaptation of the West’s historic national park lodges.  The Lodge’s interior and exterior design reflects the beauty of its stunning natural surroundings.  Local oak, pine and fir were used in its construction, as well as high beamed ceilings and soaring two-story windows to maximize views of the valley, mountains and river. 


There are various guestroom options, featuring custom mountain lodge furnishings, private outdoor balconies, deep soaking tubs, flagstone gas fireplaces, an entertainment system with LCD television, high-speed Internet access and Alaskan red cedar hot tubs in the spa guestrooms.  Suites also feature spacious kitchens with stainless steel appliances, polished granite slab countertops and stacked washer and dryer. 


An all-season destination, popular recreation opportunities at Suncadia include golf, hiking on more than 50 miles of trails, horse-back riding, mountain biking and fly-fishing in the warmer months and sledding, dog sledding, snowshoeing, cross country skiing and ice skating in the winter, to name a few.  The 18,000-square feet Suncadia Club Swim & Fitness Center is also available to resort guests and includes indoor/outdoor pools, waterslides and a state-of-the-art fitness program.


New dining options at The Lodge include:

a 120-seat restaurant with sweeping mountain and river views offering fresh, local, artisan food.  Open daily for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

a contemporary lounge serving tasting plates and a diverse selection of local, handcrafted wines and microbrews.

The Pioneer Coffee Roasting Company, a take-out bar located in The Lodge that will serve fresh gelato and fair trade coffee from local purveyor. 


Adjacent to The Lodge will be a 9,600-square-foot four-season luxury destination spa, opening in early July 2008 - the first destination spa in Washington state.  The Glade Spring Spa will offer treatment rooms, including couples’ and wet rooms, co-ed and women’s sanctuaries, locker and steam rooms, a salon, retail and light food and beverage.  The Spa is nestled in a lushly landscaped mountain glade compound, with creeks, hot mineral baths, rustic saunas, walking path, forest treatment decks, a coupl
