Vista House

vintagevistaMt. Spokane’s historic Vista House is located at the summit of the mountain, just a few steps away from the top of Chair 1 and is open to the public on weekends and holidays.

The Vista House completed by the winter of 1933 using outside contractors in a competitive bid process. Both buildings were designed by Bertelsen, and Elmer Highberg and E.O. Fieldstad won the contract to build the Vista House.

The Vista House was completely renovated in 2002 and opened to the public. It is constructed of native granite stone and timber framing. The great stone fireplace is the center of the structure, beckoning visitors to enjoy a warm drink and put their feet up in front of the fire.

Hot beverages, beer on tap and limited food service are available when the Vista House is open on weekends and holidays.
