Private, quiet, restorative, peaceful
We stayed here for 3 nights, and the weather was beautiful! We had a lot of fun combing the beaches, hiking and watching the amazing sunset. We would definitely return. The cabins are well laid out. We had two queen beds and a single bed in our cabin. I am a sensitive sleeper, and felt that the mattress was not too comfortable. When we return, I will bring a therm-a-rest and put in on top fo the bed. I also felt that I needed more blankets and quilts, and will bring that. My husband slept comfortably, as he usually does. The kitchen had utensils, but very dull serrated knives that were a hazard. We will bring our own knives when we return. The pots and pans were pretty basic, so if you intend to cook and want a certain kind of pan, bring your own. There is a refrigerator and a functional microwave. When we stayed, the Washington state restaurants had closed, so there was no restaurant food service. There was a fireplace; firewood and kindling was furnished for us. We did not hear noise from the nearby cabins. All in all, the trip was really great and we will return with our family next time, using some of the knowledge that we had gained. Forgot to say that our dog enjoyed herself also!

View is worth the visit
We had a kitchenette and throughly enjoyed or stay. The view was wonderful. Sitting watching the waves and listening to the crackling fire was so relaxing. With no TV we were given a respit from the issues of the world. We had two days of sun and one of rain. However, there is not such thing as bad weather, only poor preparation.

My husband and I stayed for two nights over the March 6 weekend in cabin 15. Pros:
Beautiful location and very nice staff.
Nice restaurant on site.
The cabin was private as it as at the end of the property. It also has a nice view of the beach through the trees.
Close to many fantastic beaches and hikers.
We reserved a stand alone cabin with full kitchen, but were told upon check in that we had been assigned to cabin 15, a duplex cabin with a kitchenette. When I expressed surprise, I was told that this is the same rate cabin as we had reserved, nothing else was available and no one was in the cabin next door.
The heater in cabin 15 was either malfunctioning or poorly designed as it cycled on and off every few minutes all night long, was noisy and did not have an off button. The second night we used the wood stove.
This was a very small cabin with only a kitchenette, but we had expected the full kitchen with the breakfast nook. So, we had to borrow cutlery and dishes from the front desk to make breakfast (only hot cereal in the end). Very tight with only the couch to sit on.
I wish we could have been more positive, but the experience was overall disappointing given the location and prices paid.

Had a great relaxing time!
The only complaint I have is there website. They need more pictures of the exact room you are thinking about reserving so read the description. The staff is super friendly. I had a guy help me with checking in and then seen him at property store and he got the door for us he was friendly and smiling the whole time. This place is rustic and relaxing. Dress warm it’s on the coast and it’s windy. No wi-fi or tv’s. So if you love crashing waves and beach combing and a nice warm fire then I would definitely recommend.

Stopped here for breakfast. The Lodge is on a cliff top with views over a cove and the ocean. Breakfast is very generous. The buffet includes smoked salmon. The pancakes (both the vegan and the non vegan versions) are highly recommended. They also do a delicious pumpkin smoothie. There is a nice souvenir shop with items such as tops, jewellery and blankets.
