My first visit to Chito Beach Resort will be the first of many. I was looking for a place to hibernate, just sleep and relax and meditate undisturbed, and that's what i found.
I stayed in "The Rock" house which is literally built on the rocks leading to the water...high tide and a storm was enough to bring splashes almost up to the deck. Plenty of blankets and good coffee meant i could even rest outside, soaking in the cool damp air.
The house itself is private with a loft bedroom, and then a futon and recliner chair downstairs, large screen TV with satellite plus DVD player, good wireless internet, dining table, gas range and oven, microwave, and kitchen essentials including coffee and tea and salt and pepper. And, of course, a gas fireplace that added added warmth and ambiance.
The bed is super comfy, though the steps up to the loft are very steep and a person who does not manage ladders well would struggle.
The views are so surprising also - every 30 minutes it seemed to change from sunny and clear to cloudy to stormy to sunny again. Cormorants and gulls were in abundance, and the river otter and 2 bald eagles added spice.
I bought my food in Port Angeles before coming the rest of the way out; however there is a great little market next to the shop that is well stocked with more than enough to live on. And, Neah Bay, just 15 minutes away, has a larger supermarket.
The managers are also super nice and responsive by email.
Last note, this is a treasure of a place...and they like to keep it that way. If you're clean and tidy, this is the place for you. If you're looking for a rough place where you can walk around in dirty shoes and clean fish in the sink etc, look elsewhere.
