Updated: 9 January 2018
When it comes time to plan a winter vacation, there are two types of people: those who prefer to flee the season to a beach somewhere and those who embrace winter in all of its hygge glory.

Less than 30 miles (48 kilometers) from downtown Seattle, the Salish Lodge and Spa feels like another world. Overlooking the incredible Snoqualmie Falls, each guest room has a wood-burning fireplace and an oversized bathtub. And for culture buffs, the hotel has the added benefit of being the setting for some of David Lynch’s creepiest moments in Twin Peaks.
