Find it: 345 S. Shore Road, Quinault, Wash., on the Olympic Peninsula; 360-288-2900

The verdant rain forest is best enjoyed in the actual rain, with its spongy forest floor, lush ferns and drippy moss canopy. And there’s a bonus, too — all that chilly winter rain means more vacancy and jaw-dropping rates at this historic national park lodge. In the lobby is a grand brick fireplace flanked by overstuffed leather chairs, the logical spot to warm up with some hot cocoa after a walk through the sky-high cedars. But tucked away off the lobby is another warm-up spot — an indoor heated pool with wood-paneled walls and large windows so you can keep an eye out for rain forest birds on the tree limbs outside. There’s also a game room and restaurant.

Tip: Although rooms in the rustic Craftsman-style main lodge are attractively packed with period antiques and feature claw-foot tubs, families will probably be comfier in one of the larger rooms or suites in the more modern detached buildings.
