I have been going here for decades.I made a reservation on Tuesday for the upcoming weekend. I thought I was calling the lodge, but I got some other reservation service, but that was fine. I never was told the cacellation policy or got an email. But, I got sick on Wednesday and stayed home from work the next two days due to feeling awful and being contagious. So, on Friday I tried to cancel within 24 hours of my arrival time because I don't want to make people there sick or leave germs in the cabin.I just have not managed to get better.I could not cancel. I am angry about the work I must do to pack, get groceries, the hours of driving and I am very weak and feel awful.I understand there's not a way to watch videos and I am not up for a walk on the beach or in the forest. I don't want to breathe air from the fireplace during this trip. So, what am I paying for? I love this place and go there to enjoy the remoteness and I walk on the beach, see the eagles, enjoy the restaurant, and sometimes hop over to Forks or the Hoh. They should be more receptive to cancellations.
