The Manitou Lodge is out of the way, but worth seeking out. It is a short drive from Rialto Beach, which is just incredibly beautiful, and not too far from several entrances to Olympic Ntl Park. The Lodge itself is charming, the vibe peaceful, the staff exceedingly helpful and nice (and not over-present, as at some B&Bs). The pre-prepared breakfast was plentiful and excellent. Hot food is heated in one's own microwave at one's own breakfast table.
The only reason I can't rate this Lodge a 5 (or higher!) is that our room was not all that well sound-proofed. The adjoining room's shower and toilet, in particular, were louder than we would have liked. Although no knock on the Manitou, prospective guests also should know that finding a decent restaurant nearby will be a challenge.More
