Skamania Lodge, a 254-room resort in Stevenson, Wash., plans to open an outdoor event space this spring. Surrounded by the Cascade Mountain Range, the 2,100-square-foot Moonlight Pavilion will be able to accommodate up to 180 people.
"We named the new venue Moonlight Pavilion because it perfectly describes the bucolic beauty of this area of our resort," said Kara Owen, general manager of Skamania Lodge. "Nothing beats sitting outside, looking at the Cascade Mountain Range through the trees on a moonlit night."
The meeting space will have firepits, heat lamps and an open-air grill. The pavilion is at the center of the Backyard at Skamania, which offers outdoor activities, such as a nine-hole golf course, an 18-hole putting course, a disc golf course, axe-throwing games and an aerial adventure park.
"The recent rebound in travel has created a heightened appetite for in-person events, and we anticipate that this unique venue will provide the perfect setting," Owen said.
The property also will be adding three new treehouses to its current six-treehouse village, due to high demand for these accommodations. The property features 27,103 square feet of events space, two restaurants and the Waterleaf Spa.
