In a word — Wow!
We lucked out and snagged cabin 16 for our one night stay. It’s on the far end over looking the cliff and the ocean. An incredible view and quite private. The cabin was clean and comfortable. Appreciate all Kalaloch is doing to conserve natural resources (and encourage guests to do the same!) The beach is beautiful. We had a great dinner at the restaurant where we watched the sun set on the Pacific from our table at the window. This is a truly special place. Only wish we could have stayed longer.

The best summer place to be
We stayed in the Macy cabin with 7 people. It was comfortable and easy access to the beach. We were able to have fires on the beach, and they have a fire pit local and that was used every night. It was a great gathering place to meet new people.The cabin has a full size fridge which was a great item to have as we brought our own food. The cabin has all cooking items so we didn't have to bring any. We have been in just about all of the cabins there and made several reviews.

This has to be one of my all time favorite places that I’ve stayed. The duplex was very nice and the location was spectacular. Everyone who worked there was super nice and talkative. Can’t wait to return!

Beautifully Located Rustic Lodge on the West Side of Olympic Park!
We stayed here for 2 nights in order to explore the western side of the Olympic Park, particularly the Hoh River Rain Forest. The lodge consists of several multi unit buildings along with a full service restaurant.The rooms are quiet and comfortable. The setting is lovely with access to the walking beach. A great place for a quiet getaway.

Fantastic location for beautiful sunsets and access to the National Park beaches
We love staying in National Park Lodges and this one didn't disappoint. The lodge is on a cliff overlooking Kalaloch Creek and Beach and of course, the Pacific Ocean. This location is just phenomenal for sunsets which are a major attraction each evening as all of the guests line up at the fence just outside the lodge to watch the sun sink into the ocean. The room was comfortable if a bit rustic and there was a bit of a musty odor but it wasn't so intense to make you want to move out. Our only complaint was the water pressure in the sink and shower was very low and it was sort of difficult to rinse off. The shower had a "five minute challenge" hour glass in the stall to encourage one to save water but it was almost impossible to rinse off quick enough to meet the challenge. This Lodge appeared to be the only game in town and was ideally located for access to the various National Park beaches up and down the coast. There is a Mercantile (general store) only steps from the lodge and they had really delicious soft serve ice cream. Be aware that the store is limited on some supplies and we had to drive 5 miles into Queets to get a loaf of bread when the Mercantile ran out.The staff was super friendly and everyone we spoke with had helpful information to share about the area beaches. We would not have enjoyed our tour of the beaches anywhere near as much without their guidance. The lodge has a good restaurant on site and seating on our two nights there was not a problem. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would go back again if in the area.
