Kalaloch Lodge

Rustic, remote, peaceful. Fall asleep to the sound of ocean waves. The rooms aren’t fancy (nor are they cheap), but you can’t beat the location. Kalaloch Lodge perches at the edge of the Pacific.

Book a room in the main lodge, the Seacrest House or one of the (dog-friendly!) cabins with kitchenettes. Note that there’s spotty reception and no Wi-Fi, so don’t bother trying to make it a working vacation.

Kalaloch Lodge is a home base for exploring the big outdoor playground that is Olympic National Park. Hike through the mossy rain forest, watch for whales, explore tide pools, walk along the beach. Don’t miss the large sea stacks at nearby Ruby Beach and the “Tree of Life” at Kalaloch Beach.

Kalaloch often books out months in advance. Make a reservation online.

Next stop: go to the gorge
