Hotel of the week: Lake Quinault Lodge, Quinault, Wash.
Lake Quinault Lodge is hidden in the Quinault Rain Forest in the southwestern corner of Olympic National Park.
Lake Quinault Lodge is a “magical and mysterious place,” said Helen Anders in The Miami Herald. Built in 1926, the historic hotel is hidden deep within Quinault Rain Forest, in the southwestern corner of Washington’s Olympic National Park. Douglas firs, Sitka spruces, and red cedars create a canopy over the lodge, while thick clouds of fog “envelop the lake, holding it in soft focus.” Explore the idyllic surroundings, then return for a regional specialty, like cedar plank salmon, at the lodge’s Roosevelt Dining Room—a “perfect blend of rustic and refined.” Contact: Visitlakequinault.com
