Delightful, relaxing, beautiful and serene
We had an absolutely heavenly stay in one of the Roosevelt Fireplace Cabins of Crescent Lake Lodge for five nights. BTW, bring your own kindling and a hatchet if you can...will make starting the fire so much easier:) The entire surroundings were so beautiful and the fireplace so warm...just phenomenal! We had a few meals at the dining area and were completely satisfied. The service was top-flight, too. Checkin-in and check-out were seamless and the staff friendly and courteous. The hikes up Storm King, Elwha River and Sol Duk Falls were without equal! The evening were especially lovely being so close to the lakeshore. Yes! We'll be back...100% chance. Thank you!

Lake Crescent Lodge is our #1 destination on the Olympic Peninsula.
Our stay is always stress relieving, comfortable and well managed.
Although the COVID19 conditions were restricting, all the staff were accommodating, helpful, and professional. Our "brown bag" dinner was well prepared, fun and filling.
The room was a comfortable resting and relaxing place to view the lake scenery.
Many trails and photo OP. Easy access.
We recommend any and all to take advantage of the serenity this outstanding locale provides.

Disappointed - Would not recommend
We were excited to stay at this historic lodge. I knew we had a Pyramid room. I did not realize this was a building separate from the main area. As we drove to find it, it was hard to find even with their map. We finally found it and dragged our luggage towards it. It was dark and dingy looking. We had a 2nd floor room. The stairs up were dirty and old looking. When we opened the door to our room, a horrible smell cam toward us. I figured out how to open the door to a dark, dingy and filthy porch. Door was almost impossible to open and close. This helped a bit with the smell. The room was not well lit. There is no internet service. We decided to stay put as the thought of walking/driving all the way back to the lodge to see if there was another room was daunting. It was quiet. The sheets on my bed smelled like the stick of the room. The next morning, we found that the 2nd bed had sheets stained with urine. The pillows on that bed smelled like urine. My husband found spiders above the mirror in the bathroom area.
We got out of here as quickly as we could and will not be back.
The food service in the lodge was pretty good. There is a nice porch to eat on with socially distanced tables and they bring your food to you. The view from the lodge is nice.

Sweet and Pleasant Lodge
It’s a 4+ star lodge. It has it’s old charm feeling. The front desk and restaurant staff are welcoming and accommodate your safety needs especially during Covid.
We stayed in the Singer Tavern cottages and loved our porch with the traditional rocking chairs. Rooms are clean and comfortable. There is no TV in the rooms which we appreciated and enjoyed reading in the dining room.
Our bonus point, the view of Lake Crescent. It was a serene and peaceful view that you can’t beat.

Charming cottages in a very scenic location. LOVED the porch at our cabin
We'd been to Olympic NP many times and am sorry to say that we had not visited Lake Crescent before. It's a wonderful location with a nice historic main building, cottages facing the lake that have porches, kayak/canoe/SUP rentals, and a wonderful main lodge. We stayed in a Singer Tavern cottage and had a great view of the lake. Ours was a 2 bedroom where one room had 2 beds, and the other had 1. There is 1 bathroom. Porch had 4 wooden rockers that were so much fun to sit in and look at the lake, enjoy coffee, read a book etc. Lots of trails are all around the lodge. The main building is great. A large fireplace with crackling logs. A wonderful enclosed sun porch where you can get a take out dinner and enjoy it or sit and play games and enjoy the lake view. Singer Tavern cottages do not have fireplaces but the Roosevelt ones do. Apparently those book very far in advance. We stayed 2 nts and enjoyed a meal on property one night, and went to Port Angeles (about 25 min away) for the other meal. Staff were very helpful. If you want to use the watercraft, that was a little tricky as you had only an AM or PM session and you had to get any of the craft in the early afternoon if you wanted to use them. We had hiked all day and got back too late to use them for al mid afternoon paddle on the lake. Due to COVID, the lodge is closer later this month. Very relaxing location. And if you want to hike Hurricane ridge, it is about 30 min. away.
