Located within Olympic National Park, the historic Kalaloch Lodge has been welcoming weary travelers since the 1920s, and together with the cabins it is now the only official National Park concessionaire-run accommodation along the park's stretch of Pacific coastline. 

Perched on a rise of land just south of Kalaloch Creek, directly overlooking Kalaloch Beach, the site was purchased by Charles W. Becker in 1925 before any major roads led to this remote stretch of the Olympic Peninsula. The site was just outside of what was at the time a National Monument. The first ambitious travelers who made it all the way to Becker's Inn and Resort Cabin were required to take a train, then a boat, and finally make a 5-mile hike. The construction of the Olympic Loop Highway (now Highway 101),  nearly six years later, allowed travelers to more easily venture to this coastal oasis built almost entirely of driftwood.

Today the resort is open year-round and boasts 42 cabin accommodations, numerous rooms within the lodge itself, and 10 rooms within the Seacrest House on the property's southern side. The resort also maintains one large group campsite on a bluff that directly overlooks the ocean. 

Each of the cabins features its own bathroom, shower, stocked kitchen, baseboard heaters, and quaint wood-burning fireplace. Little touches such as Pendleton blankets, free use of hand-carved walking sticks, and a daily delivery of bundled firewood add to the character and hospitality of the resort. The resort also has an excellent restaurant, bar, small general store, game and TV room, and gas station.

Note: When you book during the off season, be sure to ask about promotions and seasonal discounts. The group campsite features potable water, vault toilets, a campfire area, and picnic tables, and it can accommodate up to 30 people.
