History of Sun Mountain Lodge
“It all started with the dream of a young man named Jack Barron, who rode this magnificent country as a youth and wanted to share his experience and vision with others. The original lodge opened in 1968. This building was designed by well known Pacific Northwest architect Roland Terry. There were two two-story buildings for guest rooms, one facing Gardner Mountain and the other facing Patterson Lake, with a total of 50 rooms. The original “lodging” facility was actually on the valley floor and consisted of a cluster of cabins near the Sunny M Ranch. The cabins were moved to Patterson Lake.

In 1987, the Haub brothers of Germany purchased the Lodge with the adjacent Sunny M Ranch. When they decided that Sun Mountain needed renovation and expansion to meet the needs of today’s traveler, they did not want to alter the original vision or style. They hired the Seattle-based design firm NBBJ to design the “new” Sun Mountain Lodge, using natural materials and huge dimensions throughout, in keeping with the original structure. The magnificent wooden beams were made of Douglas Fir and the stone floor was constructed of Idaho Quartz.  The new Sun Mountain Lodge opened in May of 1990.” Learn more Sun Mountain Lodge here

Bear Creek Lumber was thrilled to have provided lumber to this gorgeous lodge throughout the years and you can see our products throughout the Lodge, rooms and cabins. The lumber we sell was ideally suited to helping this amazing resort blend in beautifully with its surroundings and bring the outside in.
