“Best lodge I've ever been in!”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

Well firstly, the location is just beautiful. I came in on my motorcycle for the weekend, and the roads are perfect for biking. The lodge was not hard to find at all, and it was perfectly secluded off the main highway. Beautiful setting back in the Olympic woods, with close access to the town of Forks and the beaches.
You can stay in either the main lodge or on a separate tent site or cabin, both options afford more than enough privacy. I stayed in one of the upstairs rooms for the weekend, could not have been more happy. The manager and the service were both absolutely wonderful, very friendly and helpful. They also make you a breakfast-in-a-basket, meaning they make breakfast for you there and stick it in your own personal fridge located right outside your room. I loved this part, finding tasty surprises in my fridge in the morning and having my own cozy breakfast nook to eat it in. My room also had a back porch with stair access down to the horseshoe driveway, and the manager was extremely nice enough to let me park my bike right next to my room, instead of across the driveway with the cars (which was only 20 feet away anyway).
The grounds are idyllic, with benches and tables located in quiet little corners so you can eat outside, read, or do whatever.
The lodge was also beautifully decorated, antiques hanging on the walls mixed in with comfy couches, a big main table for group gatherings or games, magazines and classic novels and a complete coffee-tea bar.
All in all, this lodge was top-notch. I would highly recommend this place, and also plan on going back next year.

Manitou has everything, peace and quiet, yet wi-fi still available to stay current. Kinda far from town, but close to Rialto Beach. It was always a highlight to see what we had in our mini fridge for breakfast, and we were never disappointed. We stayed in the Eagle room which was pet friendly, and upon arrival "Molly" had her own bowl, throw & biscuit. Only downside, bathroom walls were a bit thin. Even in the main lodge we could hear a shower going. Still, would recommend this place for anyone.

The manager was helpful and the breakfast was tasty. Great, great coffee in the Lodge and nicely appointed. We stayed in Outback 2 and it was fine for one night. We had some difficulty with WiFi which was unfortunate since my husband's work makes it necessary for him to have access while traveling. Lovely decorations and a cozy main lodge.

Best of both worlds- beaches and rain forests- to hike! And at the end of a long day a very quiet and relaxing place to spend the night. While some may complain about the "to-go" nature of the breakfasts, it was always nutritious and allowed us to eat at our own time and place and accommodated our gluten-free needs perfectly. Highly recommended. These folks go above and beyond to make sure you have a great stay. We'll be back.

My boyfriend and I stayed in The Outback. $70 makes it affordable for students like us. It's very close to Rialto Beach and La Push. If you arrive early, you can watch sunset at either beach. We arrived the lodge pretty late about 9:00pm that day. The owners left the keys on the front desk in the main lodge with a note containing nearly every info you need for your stay. Though the Outback doesn't have a bathroom, the shared bathroom takes only a few seconds walk. Breakfast is good. They are in a basket in the refrigerator in the cabin. So you can have it anytime you want which is very convenient. The lodge is in the woods and it's very quiet. The only pity is that we had to leave early the next day, and didn't have a chance to explore more about the main lodge. Make sure you have enough time to check things out in the main Lodge. We really enjoyed our stay. We'll definitely stay here again if we come back.

My husband and I travelled to the Olympic peninsula on a whim. No one we know has ever been there, and we didn't know what to expect. Washington really does not do enough advertising to lure tourists to this beautiful spot!
This place was breathtaking! We love manitou lodge and where it's located! The owners though of everything. We also met the manager, I think his name is Tye. He was the nicest guy ever, and really helpful. Upon arrival, the was a phone at the front desk and we had to call to let him know we were there and he was right down to help us out. The lodge is always fully stocked with fruit, teas, coffee, apple ciders....etc. there's also a wide array of games , cards, and books to keep you busy. They have wifi...but we didn't really use it since we were on vacation.
We stayed in the eagle room and we thought the accommodations were great. We enjoyed eating our dinner outside in the yard and loved listening to the coyotes...or wolves...at night.
Everything about is place was amazing! Nothing sucks here! Hahaha. We will be coming back for sure!

Room Tip: We enjoyed the eagle room. It wasn't attached to the lodge and it has it's own bathroom. We...

We stayed at in the smaller of the outback cabins. It was small but we expected that. There is not a shower to use but a sink is in the room and a bathroom a very short walk away in the main lodge. For $70 we found this to be a great deal. The lodge is nice and the grounds are nicely landscaped with cool art. We enjoyed the breakfast the next day on the picnic table right outside our room while watching a rabbit. Coffee and other drinks along with fruit was in the main lodge 24/7. What made it even better was that we were right up the road from the beach making it easy to get there for low tide. We would stay here again!
