Darren ReidWe offer three superb meals a day, served buffet style in the lakeside Salmonberry Dining Hall. Our staff prepare meals that showcase the fresh and flavorful foods of the Skagit River Valley as part of our ongoing Foodshed Initiative.

    Special menus, including vegetarian or other dietary needs, as well as wine and beer service are available with advance notice. We would be happy to provide recent sample menus.
