McMenamins Kalama Harbor Lodge

Kalama, WA 98625
McMenamins Kalama Harbor Lodge

McMenamins Kalama Harbor Lodge opens Friday, April 20. We welcome you to the newest McMenamins property, Kalama Harbor Lodge – a tropical-inspired oasis along the Columbia River – nestled between Kalama’s landmark totem poles and the marina at the Port of the Kalama. Inspired by the Hawaiian heritage of John Kalama, the property is reminiscent of the Pioneer Inn in Lahaina, Maui, Hawaii. You’re sure to feel the relaxation of an island vibe while taking in the beauty of the Pacific Northwest.

The new hotel will include 40 guestrooms with private bathrooms and individual lanais, most with a view of the river. The property will include a restaurant & lounge with wood stoves and a bar made of salvaged radio telegraph poles, as well as a wrap-around outdoor patio with views of the river and four fire pits for which to gather ‘round. Watch our brewers through the large front window as they make the newest selection of handcrafted ales in the seven-barrel brewery just inside the main door. Step inside the gift shop to find McMenamins gear and handcrafted beverages, including growler fills and bottles to-go. Take the elevator to the fourth floor, where you’ll find the Rooftop Bar with the best views of the river. Watch the boats come and go, handcrafted ale in hand.

Let us be the location for your next meeting and event or upcoming wedding. We have room for up to 120 people (standing). For more information and to inquire about booking private events, please go to our website.

Meander along the path that leads from the hotel past the totem poles and Marine Park to Ahles Point, where you’ll find a small log-cabin style shack built by Kalama manufacturer Mountain Log Homes. The Shack will be warmed by fireplaces inside and out, with a patio and views of the Columbia River.

McMenamins Kalama Harbor Lodge will honor the town’s roots and historical significance with its unique architecture, commissioned art and visual touches. Similar architecture can be found today in Kalama in an 1870s structure that was the Northern Pacific Railway’s hospital. John Kalama — originally of Kula, Maui — lived in the area as an employee of the Hudson’s Bay Company. The Kalama River and the city both bear his name. Descendants of John Kalama are members of the Nisqually and Warm Springs Tribes.

Hulda Klager Lilac Gardens

Each year, thousands of visitors step back in time to discover the 1880’s Victorian Farmhouse and country gardens that comprise the Hulda Klager Lilac Gardens.

To showcase the site, the Gardens and historic buildings have been lovingly maintained by the Hulda Klager Lilac Society, a nonprofit volunteer organization. The Society fully funds the care and upkeep of the historical site from the proceeds of Lilac Days, dues and donations. With the help of our volunteers and members, the Society continues to carry on the work of growing and showing the beautiful lilacs including those hybridized by Hulda Klager many decades ago.

History of Hulda Klager Lilac Gardens
Woodland is perhaps best known as the home of Hulda Klager (1863–1960), who was a prolific breeder of lilacs. The “Lilac Lady” Hulda Klager née Thiel, was long the pride of Woodland. She immigrated from Germany to Wisconsin in 1865, when she was just two years old, and came West when her family bought a farm in Woodland. Later she married and settled down on the family farm. When a friend gave her a book about Luther Burbank, she began creating flowers, hybridizing new varieties of roses, dahlias, even apples, and lilacs in particular. By 1920 she had created such a magnificent array of new hand-pollinated lilacs that she opened her garden on Lilac Week every spring for visitors. The floodwaters of 1948 rolled over her garden, destroying every shrub and hand-pollinated lilac. The loss grieved those who visited her garden or who had purchased her lilacs. From all over the Northwest, people sent starts of her lilacs from their own gardens. By 1950, at the age of eighty-seven, Klager, who loved flowers and who had been honored by the state of Washington as well as such organizations as the nationally famous arboretum at Cambridge, Massachusetts, again opened her home for Lilac Week. After her death in 1960, the Woodland Federated Garden Club, shocked that the garden might be bulldozed for industry, succeeded in raising money to buy it and have it declared a state and national historic site.
