Quite a place in quite a stunning location. Beautiful fireplace, architecture and grounds.
Very looky-loo friendly, so take a look why don't you? Perhaps I'll book for a very, very special occasion in the near future.

Wonderful historic National Park lodge! Loved our stay here!
We enjoyed our stay at Lake Quinault Lodge. My family had two rooms in the historic main lodge - one was a corner room with a queen bed and the other was a 2-double room in the middle of the inn. The rooms were very clean, quiet, and charming with historic furnishings and decent WiFi. The lodge is lovely - wonderful common areas on the main floor of the lodge and a spectacular lakefront setting. The lodge restaurant was excellent - which was great as there are very few other places to eat in the area. Great place to rest and unwind!

A favorite old lodge.
We like to stay at Lake Quinault Lodge as the rooms, while old, are clean and what one would expect. The beds are comfortable. Our room had an old style bathroom with a shower. The lobby is quite large with a very nice fireplace, tables for games and comfortable seats. The restaurant is excellent.

Boat house at Lake Quinault Lodge
This lodge has a feel of a grand resort of yesteryear. So much history. We had a room in the boathouse which we loved as it was closer to the lake, had lake views and lodge views. The lodge is really magnificent. Large and resort-ish. Kayaks and canoes available to rent. We had dinner reservations in the restaurant and was told several employees had not shown up. They were accommodating and the wait staff was a bit harried but overall had great service! Food good too.
A very enjoyable stay.

Gone downhill! Sad to see
First, and, I’m here now, reservations online plus several very lengthy phone calls. Who has time?
Convoluted and contradictory. But reserved 2 king rooms. Just arrived and have 2 queen rooms at king room prices. Seriously. The glass shelf by the sink was loose so I’d set some products ( in glass) up there. Makeup stuff. They fell of and broke. It slips over 1/2” inch. They were too busy to put coffee out the day we were leaving. The pot was empty. There was a line of people fir breakfast so we checked out and ate breakfast elsewhere.
So changed rooms but smells bad up here.
The boathouse was better, where we ended up after several moves which eats up all your time to enjoy being there.
The lovely black furniture (Chesterfield sofas etc) in leather replaced with ugly green ones in vinyl. You can tell sitting in it and looks terrible. Plus the other furniture is yellow gold. School bus color. I’ve got new and old pictures. Who the heck is responsible for this decline?
The rooms are in need of repair. Holes, screens that don’t fit. Keurig coffee maker literally covered with dust. 50 flies in my room. No face soap. Only 1 each shampoo, conditioner lotion, shower gel, they told me to use it to wash my face! Had to go down to get another set of bathroom stuff but I get 1 lotion for 2 people for 2 nights? They gave me a crumpled box of bathbar. I can’t believe this.
Wanted my daughter and her husband to have the NW lodge experience and I guess Aramark is running this amazing historic lodge into the ground. They already screwed up Lake Crescent Lodge.
This is plain wrong. It’s 11:26 pm first night here and I am seeing how poor service actually causes one to see all the lack of maintenance! I don’t think I want to eat in the restaurant and I don’t think I’ll come back. I was here Feb 2018. I come here a lot. For decades. But this is truly unacceptable.
People complained because 1 log was on the fire. They felt no warmth. They don’t want to complain though. It ruins their experience to have to go make a complaint every 10 minutes. You know, we come here and pay a price for being here and we don’t want to stay in a third rate historic lodge a corporation is milking people to make money. Destroying history. Those crappy colored cheap pieces of furniture have to go. Not very kid at the restaurant tho to seat guests. Friendly and personable.
And on the patio, beer barrels with wood planks stuck out like a sore thumb. My guess it’s the same manager that ruined lake crescent. Maybe!
A designer would never do this. Shame shame lake Quinault Aramark. Your site is a wreck too.
Go someplace else until they get a grip here. I have
photos!! Videos too. Notice the old classy black furniture and the new yellow with green. Disturbingly awful. Dirty windows ruin view.
