Loved this lakeside resort and the Salmon house restaurant next door. Just a gorgeous lakeside location along with comfy accommodations with awesome views, a handy general store, super friendly and helpful employees and great trail access. Less bustle than the nearby Quinalt Lodge. We stayed in the village motel style rooms and had such an amazing view. Can’t wait to go back.

We stayed in their two story motel. The unit was definitely old, with little concern to keep it updated. We had a second story room, and the view was magnificent, certainly better than at the Quinalt Lodge

Nice quiet place to stay!
We were very fortunate to be able to obtain reservations here at the RainForest Resort Village as everything was totally booked in July. Due to covid, it was very challenging to place way in advance to reserve but as time got closer, getting a reservation proved to be harder. Fortunately we were able to get one night's stay here.
A nice and quaint place to stay but the furnishings are quite outdated and could use some upgrade. Everything was working but the internet was very sparse. We were unable to access it at all from the rooms. We needed to head to the Rainforest Village storefront to try and obtain internet in setting up GPS on our phones. It was in and out as the signal was very low. The staff at check in had mentioned that problem to us already as the lines set up for the internet are in a location where the signal is unable successfully work.
The only issue we had with here was when we arrived at the room, we found an annoying fly buzzing around and we spent quite a few minutes to try and re-direct it to leave the room. It was quite a chore but we managed to get the fly out where it belonged. Also, the complimentary coffee and tea as well as ice is located in the Village Store where you check in. It would be good if the hot water decanter was separated from the coffee decanter as there was strong coffee taste when I made a cup of tea. Other than that, we enjoyed our stay here.

Exceeded our Expectations
We rented the two room apartment for two days. It was better than we anticipated. Had a good view of the lake, was clean, and gave us a pleasant stay. While it's not upscale like the adjacent Lodge, for the price it was a good deal. Staff were extremely helpful.

A Last Resort
Friendly staff, nice location but very outdated rooms in both the cabins and the inn. Inn and some cabins on the highway which was noisy. There is a charge for launching kayaks which was surprising since we were registered guests. Take out dinner from Salmon House was excellent.
