ONE: community threaded together in a common love for the outdoors
MISH: a Native American suffix meaning people.
The historic Skykomish Theater building was neglected and in danger of needing to be torn down. In 2016 it became our mission to restore and adapt the building into a five-unit lodge that retains the local spirit of this beloved historic town.
Beautifully renovated using much of the original material and other repurposed items from the local area. The building now offers a modern lodging experience for the purpose of bringing people together to enjoy themselves in the Cascades.
This fully renovated and remodeled lodge was built in 1903 as a storage facility for Maloney Store for decades, then was moved across the street in an impressive feat of engineering in the late 1930’s – before being converted into a local movie theater in the 1950’s. In the 1970’s the building became once again a local storage facility – you can even see marks on the softwood floors where ice was split before being sent to Seattle on the Great Northern Railroad! Every corner of this lodge tells a fascinating story of the past, and you will enjoy seeing this in visual form on the walls as well, with the historic canvas prints that were hung by the proud owners of Onemish Lodge.
