Dinner in a beautiful old lodge restaurant brings back memories.

In a beautiful setting, have a nice dinner at Lake Crescent Lodge Restaurant overlooking the lake. We were with friends from nearby Whidbey Island, and enjoyed a one night stay at the Lodge, did some hiking and had dinner. A summer camp atmosphere brings back memories of youthful summer outings... read more

We stopped in for a bowl of clam chowder between hikes. What a beautiful place to be on a sunny day!

Had dinner and breakfast there. The food at dinner was OK, breakfast was not great. They are pretty much the only option available if you are staying at the lodge, and they price accordingly. On our second night we decided to drive the 30 minutes to Port Angeles for something better and cheaper.

Overpriced food done nicely for a park concession. Braised short rib sandwich was good. Beautiful historic lodge. Weather permitting take a jump in the lake off the dock!

Love it here! Great location. Very relaxing on the lake. Food is outstanding, as is service. We always book a "motel" unit because of the private bath. The Marymere is our favorite - closest to the lake. No phones/TVs/Internet in rooms, but that adds to the peacefulness. You can access WiFi in the lodge.

We had dinner one night and breakfast the following morning. The atmosphere was very pleasant and all the servers were very attentative to our needs. Food was all very nicely prepared. Costs were a little high priced, but worth the cost.

We were utterly shocked by how good the food was here. We had 3 dinners and 2 breakfasts and all 4 of us had a great meal each time. It is not cheap, though, so be prepared for that.

Stayed in the historic lodge. Comfy beds. Shared bathrooms were clean and guests were respectful. There was a young couple running to the bathrooms with only their undies on!

We had a perfectly wonderful lunch here while visiting the park. The scenery is just gorgeous, and the food and service were very good. Our server was attentive but not intrusive as we had a quiet lunch on the sun porch. We will go back, because we will go back to Olympic. This would be a beautiful place to stay... More

The view is outstanding that the old lodge is very special. I just wish it weren't so hard to secure a room or cabin here. We tried three months in advance and that wasn't nearly enough time to get a cabin. The food was very good. We really enjoyed our time here. It is one of the most beautiful spots... More
