We stayed here for 3 nights in the Angeles cabin, wished we had stayed longer. The cabin has a great view of the lake from its bedroom window. Chis and Tom are excellent hosts. They are very friendly, but will respect your privacy. Tom will willingly give you lessons on the flora and fauna of the area. The location is very convenient to town and the forest. The fishing and canoeing can be great, if the local Indians can solve their political issues and re-open the lake.

New Year’s Eve found us cozily celebrating in the Valley of Giants in the Quinault Rain Forest. The weather couldn’t have been more inspirational as Janus-like, we reflected back over the old year on December 31st, and resolved to be better people in the new year ahead on January 1st.we The fog on the lake lifted on the 2nd and we had a glorious last day of our short stay.

Lochaerie Resort is perfectly situated for hiking in the primordial forest and our drive around the lake afforded photos of snow-capped peaks, moss-covered giants, and white-rumped elk.

Our sweet cabin was named Angeles. It was a perfect home away from home, clean and cozy and sweetly romantic. The two of us we’re happy to snuggle in the full-size bed, and we appreciated the pillow-top mattress.

So many details of rustic chic: I loved the cabin’s red painted floors, the wood burning stove, rock fireplace, and braided rugs. The kitchen was just big enough for our simple meals. It has a stainless steel counter, high porcelain sink, calico curtains, and yellow wainscoting.

Yes, the bathroom is teeny, the water pressure lacking, and clean towels scant, but we really did love it.

I will return; I look forward to happily spending more quality time-- watching the lake from the bedroom window in this cozy love nest just perfect for romance.

Room Tip: Cabin Angeles is a romantic get-away.

Chris and Tom were wonderfully helpful with restaurant and activity suggestions and even offered us some wine as we talked about our plans for the next day. Our cabin was perfect with a beautiful view of the lake and a super cozy living room. We had a great time canoeing across the lake to The Salmon House for breakfast and spent the day hiking around the south side of the lake. Chris even offered to pick us up if we were too tired to canoe back at the end of the day. We will definitely be back next time we're in the park.

Room Tip: We were so busy exploring the park we didn't take the time to check out the grounds and other ca...

Been several times, always a pleasure. Very basic but nice cabins...clean, quiet, fireplaces, views, fully equipped kitchens. Nice staff, available if you need them. Go hiking, canoeing, exploring, beachcombing or do nothing. No phone, tv, wi-fi...you won't need them. Each cabin a gem. Beautiful and relaxing

We spent 2 nights in Cabin Olympus and it was VERY clean and well maintained. The cabin is a rustic but delightful with a real "National Park Feel". The stove/fireplace was ready for use and wood was supplied and the hosts were warm and helpful and will help carry luggage. This is a rustic experience, with no TV/Phones but it does have cell service. The lake is beautiful and there are canoes/kayaks for free NOT like all the other Lake Resorts. Each cabin is distinct and have patios/decks/porches. Remember though this is a RAIN FOREST and it rains!! The cabins nearest the lake have challenging climbs for elderly or mobility impaired. The cabins nearest the main house have easy access. BRING food, the cabins have full kitchens with all supplies but the grocery store in Amanda Park is VERY limited. The Lake Quinault Loop is worth doing with a SUV or study sedan.

Room Tip: Lunch at the Lake Quinault Lodge is fun and the Lodge has a great gift shop. The Rain Forest Resort...

My girlfriend and I stayed here for two nights on our way back from Vancouver, we could not have been more happy with our stay. In fact, we really didn't want to leave. We stayed in Cabin Christie and it was absolutely fantastic. It has a fantastic view of the lake and great little patio with two adirondack chairs.

Chris and Tom were very nice and helpful. We took the canoe out for a spin, which was really nice.

Some reviews complain about the price, but compared to other lodging in the area, it was very comparable but a much nicer place. Getting down to some of the cabins and the beach is a little steep, so keep that in mind.

Overall, it was definitely one of best lodging experiences I've had, and I cannot wait to go back!

Room Tip: Would definitely recommend Cabin Christie for couples.

We loved our stay in the Storm King. The charmingly decorated cabin was peaceful, spacious, and clean. The beds were comfortable. The kitchen is small, but it had everything we needed to make dinner each night - all of the appliances are in good working order. Great views and very soothing to be right on the water. A pair of bunnies visited our front porch every morning. Chris was friendly and responsive to all of our questions about the area and to our requests. The stairs down to the cabins on the water are very steep, but it is worth it to be right on the water. It is wise to read the "fine print" section of their website. They do say that the deposit is non-refundable. For us, it was not a problem. The cabin was well worth the money. It was only $15 more a night for a three bedroom cabin with a living room, fireplace, and kitchen than it was for a hotel-like room in the Lodge across Lake Quinault. We wished we could have stayed longer and would gladly stay at Lochaerie again if we get back to the Olympic penninsula. Location was fantasic. Many great hikes in Quinault valley and saw lots of wildlife (elk and bears) while driving around the lake in the evenings.
