“Best Place to Stay on the Lake”
Reviewed 18 May 2012

We were lucky: we went on days that we absolutely gorgeous, warm, and dry. Lake Quinault was beautiful and had reasonably-priced boats, canoes, kayaks, and other lake rentals. The cabins and rooms are nice compared with other options on the lake. It is very peaceful. I'm kind of an outdoor girl and my husband is more of an indoor cat. We both loved it. It had enough amenities that he did not feel like he was roughing it, and yet it was remote and quiet enough for me to feel connected to nature. We will definitely be back!

We recently stayed at the Lake Quinault Lodge on a stellar weekend, weather-wise. Sunny, clear warm weather (in the high 70's) for three straight days is rare on the Olympic Peninsula, and it was great to see families with young children taking full advantage of the hotel amenities outdoors: big lawn, nice beach(some kids were braving the water), kayak and canoe rentals, riverbank and waterfalls to explore, and nearby easy trails to introduce kids to the rainforest ecology, which is mind-boggling when you start to learn about it. It turns out that a temperate rainforest is now a rarity on Earth, and to be surrounded by the lushness and abundance of fish, plant, tree, lichen and moss species here just pulls you into wanting to learn more. That's what 140-plus inches of rainfall per year will produce, but even in wet weather, it would be worth it to venture out in raingear to explore the trails, where the tree canopy is so thick that you might not get as soaked as you'd think. The historic main lobby with its big fireplace, many comfortable sofas and welcoming game tables (games included!) would be a great place to warm up afterwards; if your kids were still antsy, there's a game room and indoor pool downstairs.
The Lakeside units where we stayed, a couple of hundred feet from the original main lodge, were built in the early 1990's and aren't particularly special, though the lake views are lovely and the beds very comfortable. We found the entire staff very friendly.
The food in the dining room is adequate though far from spectacular; the reason to come here is to use the lodge as a very nice base from which to explore an amazing part of the Northwest.

I've spent quite a lot of time at Lake Quinault as well as Lake Crescent Lodge
While Lake Crescent is a more beautiful lake, over 9 miles of often turquoise waters, lake Quinault in many ways tops Crescent. First it's open all year long, second it's not a National Park and I think perhaps, I'm not sure, is not given to the rate of turnover of employees as Crescent is. Therefore it's a more stable environment so far as service goes.
It's lovely this time of year at Quinault, fog mornings over the lake makes opportunities for photos very exciting.
The breakfast is good and service in the restaurant is handled well.
Christmas was a special time there a year ago Christmas, a frozen rain forest twinkled with sun lit frost along the forest paths. Quinault has a pool and sauna as well and one building at least us pet friendly.
I highly recommend Quinault as stable service orientation and a good value.

After having our wedding at Lake Quinault Lodge, we return every chance we get to enjoy the beauty and quiet. The location is gorgeous, especially on a sunny day, and the lodge is filled with history and warm charm. The fireplace rooms have huge cozy beds and views if the lawn and lake. There are plenty of trails in the area or you can relax by the roaring lobby fire or outside enjoying the views in a lawn chair or kayaking the lake. A great place to get away from it all!

Room Tip: The rooms in a the main lodge or boathouse have older charm, the lakeside rooms are right on the wat...

This is a classic lodge from the 1920s on a lovely lake -- timbered ceilings and huge fireplace in the lobby, comfy leather sofas, tables with jigsaw puzzles and chess games. It has the feel of being in the mountains, although it is less than 300 feet above sea level. You can hike to waterfalls in the rainforest from trailheads across the street from the lodge. We found staying there very comfortable and peaceful, and got a kick out of hearing the old heating system cranking up while we were sitting in the lobby. The old radiator in our room worked well, though, and we weren't bothered by any noises there. We took advantage of a spring special offered on the Olympic National Park website, which made it quite affordable.

Arriving at Lake Quinault Lodge, my first impression was 'what a relaxing and quiet place'! There were several people spread over the large outside area, sitting in chairs on the beach or on the terrace, reading or just taking in the nice views in the afternoon sun. Some were sitting in the huge lounge in front of the fireplace. And although I am not a huge fan of deep, brown leather sofas and all this rustic stuff, in this case this was all very coherent.
Forget the sauna. It's a tiny cabin located in the changing room area. pool might be alright, I just briefly looked at it but didn't use it as I wanted to see the outdoors rather then spend time inside.
We did the long loop trail starting at the lodge before breakfast (2 hours or so). Very nice.
Restaurant was nice and staff friendly.
Our room wasn't special, room 6 in the main building, no views, heating was on full and though I felt the radiator and it was cold when we moved in in the afternoon, it started heating in the middle of the night, making noises and the room getting very hot. Also you could hear every word from the next room connected to ours with a door.
Still this was a place I would have liked to spend some more time, staying a few more nights.
On our way further around the Olympic National Park, we drove on the road around the Quinault Lake as advised by the guy in the reception/shop, also visiting the large trees. This was great!
All in all this was a place I would have liked to stay a bit longer. Definitely recommendable!

Enjoyed staying at the Lake Quinalt Lodge this past weekend. We had a Lakeside Room with a great view of the lake through the trees.

Be aware the the walls have little insulation and sound carries into neighboring rooms easily. We were celebrating the birthday of a friend with the music on quietly and laughing at stories, but were told by the guests in the adjoining room that we were too loud (at 9:30pm on a Friday). We adjourned to the main lobby for the rest of the evening without issue.
Also, I noticed that the interior of some of the rooms nearby had been recently renovated, but ours was not one of them. There was nothing wrong with our room other than looking a little worse for wear.

We enjoyed a great 6 mile hike in the rain forest right from the Lodge on Saturday morning.

We also had enjoyable, delicious dinner at the Lodge, but felt it was over priced for what you got (i.e., 3 medium scallops with wild mushrooms and veggies for $30).

The pool and game room are a lot of fun.

All in all we had a great time and will definitely return.
