Outdoor Activity
The Lake Quinault Lodge was built in 1926 in Olympic National Forest in Washington, USA. The hotel was designed by Robert Reamer, a Seattle architect, in a rustic style reminiscent of Reamer's work at the Old Faithful Inn in Yellowstone National Park. It is a notable example of a rustic wilderness lodging, suited to its woodland environment on the southern side of the Olympic Mountains.Design and constructionThe two-story wood frame structure replaced a previous building on the site that was built by Jack Ewell for the Olson family in 1903. The Olsons sold their interest in the first hotel to the Seaman family in 1921. On August 24, 1924, the original hotel burned.Its replacement was funded by lumberman Ralph Emerson of Hoquiam, who bought out the Seamans. The first stage was a plain 1-1/2 story structure which still stands as the annex, restored in 2007. It became so popular that expansion was needed, and a new, more elaborate lodge was planned.Robert Reamer was associated with the contractor, the Metropolitan Building Company, and the company's construction superintendent was Roy Garrison, who had previously worked with Reamer. Reamer had recently completed work on the Hotel Emerson in Hoquiam, and had extensive experience in the design of hotels in natural settings. Work started on June 9, 1926, and was complete fifty-three days later, on August 18, 1926.Emerson sold the lodge in 1939. It closed during World War II. After the war it was operated by the Walker family. In 1988, the hotel was purchased by the Aramark corporation.

  • Had lunch at their restaurant, with just beautiful views of the lake. It was sunny and beautiful, birds kept coming up to the window to watch us, the food was tasty and reasonably priced. They were out of a few items, but it was the end of Memorial Day weekend, and very far from anywhere (no cell reception) so completely understandable. Definitely want to come back and stay here.
  • We had lunch in the Roosevelt Room. The food and service was excellent and the view from our window table of the lake was calming and serene. We ordered fish and chips. Portions were large enough to share. Service was good. Nice stop as we explored the Cascades.
  • It was beautiful here! There's a little gift store and a restaurant too. There was a wedding taking place when we were there, so we didn't see too much else as it was blocked off. It's a great view though!
  • Ate dinner here after a hike. Excellent customer service, such friendly staff. Beautiful view. Good food
  • Good lunch just a bit on the pricey side. Considering this is one of the few places to eat around here the higher price is probably to be expected! Really good clam chowder!
