Celebrate the Last Weeks of 2010 For $20.10 With a Retreat to the Olympic National Park
The Quinault rainforest, as seen by HotelChatter last week. Sadly we failed to find Edward Cullen
Sometimes you want to end the year by partying your brain into a gutter and sometimes you want to turn your back on all the fake-happy Christmas parties and ignore the fact that another year is about to finish. And if you’re leaning the latter way this year, then you’re in for a treat, because two of the properties within Washington State’s Olympic National Park are offering a pretty good deal for the tail end of the year.
Stay one night for $99 at either Lake Quinault Lodge, in the middle of the Quinault Rainforest, or Kalaloch Lodge, on the coastal road up to Forks, and you can book a second night for $20.10 (because it’s the end of 2010, see).
The deal is valid until December 30, but you must book by November 30.
And to deal with the haters now: yes, it is very rainy out there (the rainiest place in the USA, apparently). But we were actually at Lake Quinault last week, and not only was it not cold, but a rainy walk around the rainforest that we thought we’d hate turned out to be actually pretty incredible. The waterfalls were ginormous, the moss was springy and the cedars (one is 1800 years old, no less) smelt amazing.
Oh and of course it’s within easy reach of Forks, AKA Twilight central. And the campy visitor center alone should make a trip there worth it.
