"Pure" Getaway

Suncadia managed to win me over. It was the first time I've stayed at the lodge, and it won't be the last. I saw a little bit of everything that is important to me in the three + days I stayed there. A picturesque golf course littered with wildlife, good food, and of course a great atmosphere to enjoy a nice glass of red wine. It may not be for everyone but you won't find a more pristine place than this. My wife's old boss laughed when he found out I was there. Suncadia was the site of the Hotel and Lodging Association's annual retreat. When my wife invited me to tag along it was a no-brainer. Suncadia sports three golf courses, and the oldest tavern in the state is nearby. Again, it was a no-brainer. Next year the Hotel and Lodging Association is holding their annual retreat at the Skamania Lodge. Yes, they have a golf course. I'm sure my schedule is open.
