The lodge has wifi! …and really good food. Photograph the sun setting over the lake and dock. Take an ND filter for your camera so you can take a long exposure and smooth out the water in the photo.

The hike to Marymere Falls is a must, though the stairs at the end of the trail to the falls can be a little steep. But there are railings to hang on to. It's a lovely little walk in the woods.

I want to spend some time here. So, so beautiful. The Lodge looks like it is right out of a movie. Just visited, did not stay, but I will someday.

Drove by this beautiful lake on the way around Olympic National Park. The lake had some of the clearest water of gorgeous blue and green and silver colors along the beach. Wished we had had more time to explore this lake area --- but had to settle for a glimpse

Lake Crescent is absolutely lovely with gorgeous views above and below the water. We rented a private home and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Yes, there is a bit of driving, but worth it. The lake is truly crystal clear (COLD, too) and we enjoyed seeing the fish and newts while out on the dock or paddling. We were treated to... More

The lake - sparkling clear blue surrounded by the Olympic Mountains sets the serene tone. I have always had lovely and memorable visits here over decades of time. Great place just for lunch... More
