Lake Crescent Lodge: a historic resort

Since we’re on an Olympic Peninsula kick already, I figured I’d share one more place: the Lake Crescent Lodge. This gorgeous lodge has been standing on the edge of Lake Crescent (past Granny’s Cafe on Highway 101) since 1917. The giant glass windows on the enclosed sun porch, the wooden floors and the big rock fireplace are original and swoon worthy.

I try to make a stop at this beautiful lake and gorgeous lodge as often as I can, but I have never sat long enough for a hot coco before… and yum! Definitely recommending making time to sit on the covered patio and enjoy a big pretty glass of coco.

For some other things to do while visiting the lake, I’d suggest the mini hike to Marymere Falls or a dip of the toes in Barnes Creek. There are also little cabins to rent and places to stay at the lodge if you’d like to spend a relaxing weekend at the lake. At least make time to sit on the end of of the dock and take in the amazing scenery.
