Sun Mountain Lodge is an incredible resort that is ideal for every season.

Inspired by nature, Sun Mountain Lodge reflects a harmony with its surroundings that is evident down to the last detail. Whether you’re looking for refined elegance or a rugged wilderness experience, a place to come together with the family or a romantic getaway, thrill-of-a-lifetime recreation or quiet reflection, or perhaps that rarified place where business and pleasure do mix, Sun Mountain Lodge is poised to exceed your expectations.

The lodge itself is nestled in the eastern foothills of the North Cascades in the Methow Valley, one of the Northwest’s most popular destination recreation areas. Perched on a bluff overlooking the mountain, the resort is situated on 3,000 acres of pristine private wilderness, including 120-acre Patterson Lake, and boasts 300 days a year of sunshine. Beyond relaxing at the lodge or at the Patterson Lake Cabins, bird watching, mountain biking, horseback riding, fly fishing, cross-country skiing (65 kilometers of groomed trails in total) and snowshoeing, and even horse drawn sleigh rides are all at your doorstep.

  • 2 outdoor pools
  • 2 outdoor hot tubs
