The Great Northern Hotel (Twin Peaks)
Picture the grand Overlook Hotel from "The Shining" with upscale, hunt-lodge décor. Now, place it at the edge of the majestic Snoqualmie Falls, where water dropping 268 feet to the riverbed below kicks up an ever present mist. That's the Great Northern Hotel.
Inside, firelight warms wide, pine paneling to a soft glow. Unpeeled stripling pines trim doorframes and windows. Stuffed fish, mounted antlers and upturned deer legs holding antique rifles accent sturdy log and twig furniture to create a feeling of rustic affluence. The dining room staff is attentive, and the coffee, of course, is excellent.
The Great Northern Hotel offers comfort and easy living in an idyllic Pacific-Northwest setting -- if only the residents of Twin Peaks were so charming.
