VÄLKOMMEN TILL ANDERSON LODGE!
Anderson Lodge is a unique and extraordinary lodge in Southwest Washington that welcomes thousands of guests every year. The natural setting and homey atmosphere enhances gatherings of all kinds.

Our mission is to make your event a success in every way. Therefore, we provide exclusive use of our facility for all our groups. Get away from it all at Anderson Lodge in Scandinavian style.

Of course, the natural beauty surrounding the lodge is the number one attraction.
