Skamania Lodge is adding new glamping tents, cabins, and a three-bedroom villa.
A night at the Skamania Lodge outside Portland, Oregon, has always been a treat. The 175-acre mountain hideaway is nestled in a clearing surrounded by towering Douglas Firs along the scenic Columbia River Gorge. In addition to traditional rooms and suites, the property added a “tree house village” that’s about to be expanded with upscale glamping tents perched on the forest floor.
The new glamping tents will offer the chance to really spend the night in nature — with a luxurious twist. The canvas safari-style tents are bolstered by wooden framing and set on a giant platform. Each has a king-sized bed outfitted with 300-thread-count sheets and fluffy pillows.
In the adjacent bathing tent, there's a shower and a deep soaking tub that can be enjoyed under an open tent to showcase the beauty of the surrounding forest.
The thoughtful touches and luxurious amenities are what make a stay in the Skamania Lodge's tents “glamping,” but the true experience is the simple act of enjoying a night under the stars in a dense forest. Mornings are spent on the deck, coffee mug in hand, and afternoons are spent exploring the on-property trail system.
"We can’t wait to introduce our luxurious glamping experience, catering to the growing demand for immersive outdoor stays that offer both adventure and comfort," Jack Hansen, director of sales and marketing at Skamania Lodge, said in a press release shared with Travel + Leisure. "The glamping experience allows guests to unwind in nature while enjoying the unparalleled amenities and services synonymous with Skamania Lodge."
Glamping guests also have access to the resort’s many amenities, including indoor and outdoor hot tubs, an indoor swimming pool, a fitness center, a 9-hole golf course, and an adventure park with seven zip lines and three sky bridges. The Skamania Lodge also has a full spa and two award-winning on-site eateries.
Skamania Lodge is located 45 minutes east of Portland in the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area. Before the launch of the glamping tents in May 2024, Skamania will debut a series of brand-new cabins and a spacious, three-bedroom villa for larger groups. Both open in April 2024. All accommodation types are available to book now for stays starting in May and April, respectively, at skamania.com.
