The owner was very nice and we did feel very welcome upon arrival. Main lodge itself is nicely decorated, and attention was paid to exterior grounds too.
The rooms, are nice, just about the right size - some mold issues in the bathroom, but not a surprise in the PNW and close to a rain forest.
However, do bring earplugs if you are staying in the mezzanine rooms. You will be able to hear other guests from below and talking in the main area... so noise insulation is not up to snuff...
The breakfast is ...cute and was enough, but not really a great deal for what you pay.
Double check if there will be groups in the main lodge during your stay - maybe we were just unlucky, and got a very rude Seattle’s French mixed family. Their group took over the main lodge, altought only a few were indeed staying in the main lodge, and remained loud, overtaking the main table and sitting areas all day, not really making the other guests comfortable. Maybe the owner is to blame here too, but for sure I will not return to this place, and do advice some caution and check with owner regarding having groups during your stay.
As the place seems to cater to groups, so you might find yourself squeezed out of enjoying the place - maybe we just got unlucky, and happen to just have an obnoxious unpleasant family at same time, but I will look somewhere else for my next stay
Location is very good - away from the road, close to the beach, and easy access to ONF
Sound proofing is bad
Breakfast it's ok
Decoration is lovely and quirky
Very pleasant owner
A big downfall is catering to groups...
Recommended? ...not really
