We left Route 101 in the ONP and continued on Route 110 to the small town of Forks where we had reservations at Huckleberry Lodge, a camping and cottage resort located halfway between the Hoh Rainforest and the ocean at La Push. Our home for the night was log cabin-adorable and a perfect retreat in the woods complete with a vase of fresh red roses and two wine glasses. The rustic but well appointed interior included a mounted deer head, wooden carvings of Indians and animals, and attractive Indian blankets folded on the bed. We should have booked two nights here with all the hiking trails and outdoor activities. We had been cautioned not to stay in Forks but I'm finding many such suggestions have been faulty. The owner, Bill, met us with his new goat Charlotte (the other goat is called “the goat”, and the unnamed chickens ran wild. There were yurts and tents tucked in the trees in addition to cabins. Bill informed us he would make us the healthiest and best tasting pancakes in the morning along with the strongest Cowboy Coffee known to man. (We looked forward to breakfast!) Bill kindly had Guadalupe, his cleaning person, put our laundry in the wash and left money in the dryer enabling us to leave without hanging around to finish our laundry.
It was 46 degrees when we woke the next morning but quite comfortable on our cabin, although our neighbors were very noisy moving furniture with crying children late at night and early in the morning. Smells and sounds from the campfire lured us out of our warm cabin to the outdoor bonfire kitchen. True to Bill’s word we enjoyed a terrific Cowboy Breakfast including a generous-sized healthy pancake with fired egg breakfast cooked by chef Tammy, outdoors under the wooden mortice and tenon gazebo by the fire. Bill built the gazebo, cabins and most of what was around here. He was a font of information explaining the local history, telling stories about the Spanish invasion on the Nikali ship around Neah Bay in 1792. Bill built a monument to the history of this interaction in Neah Bah with the Makah people which we saw later. He said the best spruce trees are found here in this region and as a result, were harvested and shipped along the Spruce RR Trail from Aberdeen to Port Angeles. "The Goat”, so named, sat warming herself by the breakfast campfire, while chickens were at my feet begging for scraps. Bill walked around refilling cups of his Cowboy Coffee out of an old classic metal pot as he continued his history lesson.
Before we left for this adventure we had learned about a character named Mick Dodge who lived in the Hoh Rainforest. National Geographic television has a series dedicated to his hermit-like lifestyle in the rainforest that, as part of our research, we watched before coming. It turns out that Mick Dodge actually lives in Huckleberry Lodge when he is not sleeping in the Hoh. Mick built the yurt on the resort property a few years ago and named it Mick Dodge Lodge that Bill now rents out because Mick had left for California for a time. Mick has since returned and now the weathered 65 year old sleeps outside in the Huckleberry Meadow and every morning drives his van into the Hoh.

Room Tip: Cabin 1 is quiet unless your connected neighbors have crying children and drag furniture around the room late at night.

My kids and I stayed here while attending a wedding at the Kahlalock Lodge in Washington. It was beautiful, clean, and super friendly. Community breakfast every morning and great coffee. I highly recommend!

Room Tip: The cabins are great

There is no check in office here. You arrive to your cabin and the key is in the room. The room was beautiful and very well maintained. They even offer robes for you to use. The grounds are large and you can use the hot tub. They have laundry facilities and a fishing cleaning station. There are several types of accommodations for you here. Glamping tents, cabins and even camp trailer spots. We stayed in a Cabin. Really wish we stayed a couple of nights instead of just one. The location is great for the Olympic National park (only about 10 miles away) and 18 Miles from La Push beach. Don't miss that! The town is small but you have access to several food restaurants and all your basic needs. Huckleberry is a little hard to find as it is not on the main highway. Depending if coming from Port Angeles or Seaside you will enter off the main highway onto Olympic street. There is a HOTEL sign for another hotel like a Quality inn on the same street almost across from the 76 gas station. This is on the end of town. Turn down Olympic street and you will see a small sign on the post for Big Pine Way at the end of the street. It turns into a dirt road. Take the dirt road to the end to the gates for Huckleberry. You should already have your accommodation confirmation for your cabin space or tent. Each is clearly marked. Arriving during the day may make it a little easier to find. This is a great place to stay and worth the extra dollars. Most of the cabins do not have a private bath but the showers and restroom were very close so no worries there. Could be a romantic get-a-away.

Room Tip: Regardless of which cabin you select they are all in a great location. The tents are more centralized within the property.

My husband and I stayed at the Trapper's Cabin for 3 nights in August and we loved the Huckleberry Lodge! Every morning, there was wonderful "cowboy" coffee available at the camp kitchen, as well as pancakes and farm fresh eggs (cooked to your request). The room was incredibly comfortable and had everything we needed. The shower, restroom and laundry facilities were clean and readily available. We loved seeing the goats and chickens on site as well! It's a short walk to the river, which was a beautiful place to visit. The hot tub was clean and never crowded. The owners were friendly and extremely helpful with recommendations of what to do in the area, as well as the history of the area. We enjoyed our visit so much that we are hoping to return in the future!

Room Tip: Trapper's Cabin was a wonderful place to stay!

Thoroughly enjoyed the Forks visit. Queen size bed & sleep sofa. Weather was great without rain. Cooked out at night at campfire. I loved the Twitter bus tour! Friends loved Rainforest hikes. Ride up went through beautiful scenery. Saw mountains, beaches, quiet towns with friendly people. On ride up we traveled south from Seattle. Return trip was north from Forks to Seattle and shorter. We took a ferry ride which took us right into downtown Seattle.
