Lochaerie Resort
Reviewed July 16, 2013

Lockaerie Resort is an ideal location to stay while exploring the Lake Quinault area. The owners Tom and Chris have done an amazing job of restoring this jewel of a small resort. They are also sweet people and a good source of local information. Tom was a great help in getting us set up with a small BBQ to cook our evening meals on and owns a beautifyully restored 1954 Chevy truck..The resort consists of the owners remodeled house and office with a lovely garden and lawn area, with several tidy steep hillside cabins of varying sizes overlooking the lake. We stayed in one of the smallest,Elinore, because it was the cheapest of the lot --$150/night. The very rustic 1 bdr cabin was at the top of the hill, next to the garden, had its own parking space, was very clean, had a nice wood burning stove, fully equiped kitchen wi tiny bathroom and small porch. The beds were comfortable. Sadly the living room held a single bed and some not very comfortable chairs making just hanging out in our cabin not so enjoyable. Had this area been set up a little better, I could see charging $150 / night but, it felt more like a$75-100 place. On top of this we were not allowed to use the kayaks and canoes on the lake--not the owners fault, the local Indian tribe was apparently flexing their muscles that weekend. Hopefully this has been worked out by now. Although over-priced by $50/night, this is a quiet and peaceful place to stay. If the price would have been more reasonable I would have rated it higher--very good.

Stayed here 6 nights in the Elinore cabin & it was wonderful!!! The views of the lake were wonderful & the property is very well kept. Cozy & quiet with the rainforest all around. Chris & Tom were friendly & helpful. Enjoyed just walking around the property & sitting watching the ducks on the lake.

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...
