Salmon House Restaurant will whet your palate with forest flavors, while Quinault Rainforest trails open your eyes wide to the wild nature of Washington!
Your paddle cuts Lake Quinault like glass, marking your journey like a map. Your rustic rainforest cabin is not far behind you, past the picture frame of Olympic National Park. Here lies the legend of Lochaerie Resort, a private gateway to the National Park's North Shore since 1926. Each cozy, backcountry cabin is rich in charm and character, its surrounding mountain forest views warmed by a warm hearth and a feeling of home. A kayak, firewood, and a sense of adventure are all you need here!
America's heritage is found in the Pacific coastal rainforests, in the wilds of Olympic National Park, and in Kalaloch Lodge! The Quinault Indians first called this land "Kalaloch" or "good place to land." It's hard not to feel an ancient presence in the forest waterfalls, ancient evergreens, and driftwood-lined beaches. Stay in the Olympic Peninsula's apex at this leading Olympic National Park lodge and take an inspiring endeavor world-class razor clamming, fishing, hiking, or whale watching.
The turn-of-the-century still survives at historic Lake Crescent Lodge on the Olympic Peninsula. Updated options hold behind their lantern-lit lakeview windows the charm of a century gone by at lakeside Roosevelt or Singer Tavern Cottages, and Marymere, Pyramid, and Historic Lake Crescent Lodge rooms. Giant fir and hemlock trees shield the shoreline and frame you into the simple elegance of a bygone era. There's no better view in Northwest Washington than the sunset over Lake Crescent!
Washington is home to yet another world wonder: Sol Duc Hot Springs Resort!
