Loved the location and the spacious room. Only disappointments were that our cottage room did not have a view of the ocean and that the quality of our meal at the Creekside Restaurant did not match the price paid for it.

We stayed in the cabins, and the staff truly thought of everything: from wood in our cabin for the stove, to a s'mores kit at the mercantile, and even board game rental. The regional food at the restaurant was delicious. The cabins, and lodge are cozy and staff was friendly and attentive. This is a once in a lifetime kind... More

Our extended family has been visiting Kalaloch every summer for more than 50 years with the newer generations continuing the tradition. We love the setting, with its beautiful views and a perfect sandy beach. We also appreciate the ability for our family to be near each other in several cabins along the bluff. Our biggest issue is the high cost... More

The lodge was great, and we loved waking up to the ocean view and sound of waves. Historic, rustic, and extremely comfortable. A great experience. Such an amazing place to explore, we wold have loved to stay longer than one night. Restaurant and store were also excellent.

The food was terrific here. We had dinner, and the restaurant filled up while we were there. The waiter was attentive, and the chef prepared everything as requested. They are open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Wish we could have eaten there for all three meals.

Cabin was great - we love having the kitchenette so we could provide our own meals. Beds were very comfortable and everything was clean - which was more amazing after we'd spent a few hours there and had tracked in a load of sand. Being right on the ocean was the best part of the adventure - making a fort... More

This beautiful and rustic lodge is a great choice after a day of exploring in Olympic. We loved having a fire crackling in the fireplace as we went to sleep and both our dinner and breakfast in the restaurant were first rate.
