Since getting married at Skalitude on Summer Solstice this year, we are still amazed at how amazing a setting and opportunity was provided to us by the hosts. They went completely out of their way to ensure a successful event for everyone involved and worked directly and tirelessly with and for us. Since this beautiful place was thankfully untouched by the Carlton-Complex Fire, we will be able to come back here for years to come- which we plan on doing! There is really no other place with the buzzing sense of serenity, stewardship, beauty, and inclusiveness that we have experienced every time we've visited, and are so thankful we found Skalitude to exchange our vows.
We stayed at Skalitude a few times prior to the wedding to get a general feel for how the big event should go, and every visit marveled at the cleanliness and upkeep of the amenities and the surrounding natural beauty, of which pictures could never do justice. The lodge is the hub of the property with cooking and showering for decent-sized groups, with additional opportunities to relax in the nearby wood-fired sauna and recently built Bermhouse (with the cleanest composting toilets we've ever experienced)! The nearby opportunities for adventure are incredible at all times of year, but the crux of the experience would be staying within and experiencing the Skalitude Valley and it's panorama of intensely beautiful hillslopes blanketed with either warmth & wildflowers, snow, dramatic fall colors, or vivid greens of new plant growth in the spring. The Methow and various towns contained within are worth visiting too, just don't take the time and spiritual replenishment granted by all aspects of Skalitude for granted!
