Kalaloch Lodge

Kalaloch Lodge. Photos and info about the Lodge at Kalaloch Beach in the Olympic National Park, Creekside Restaurant within the Lodge, and the various lodging options.

Rugged and rustic, with blue trim reflecting the sea and the sky, the Lodge sits on the sliver of land that is the western edge of the Olympic National Park. Facing the sea and all its wildness, Kalaloch is an ideal, even romantic, place to cozy up with a Pendleton blanket and relax by a window to watch a perfect, or a storm-battered, sunset.

Kalaloch Lodge Amenities

For the record, Kalaloch is pronounced "KLAY-lock."

The word kalaloch means "good place to land" in the native language of the Quinault First Nations people.

So it should only follow that Kalaloch Lodge also makes a great home-base for exploring the many beaches in the area. From Kalaloch it is just a short drive into the Olympic Mountains in order to explore the temperate rainforests, hike, mountain bike, camp, fish, and much more.

With a variety of lodging options available this is the perfect get-away, ideal for unplugging and soaking in pure, exquisite nature. The greens and blues of tree, sky, and sea, sometimes interrupted by a dose of storm-watching grays, will keep your stay refreshing.

A total of 66 rooms and cabins make up this remote resort. Most feature a coffee maker, MP3 player/alarm clock, hair dryers and walking sticks for hiking or beach-combing and Pendleton blankets for wrapping up and relaxing. Additionally, the Lodge is completely telephone, wi-fi/internet and television free, with the exception of the two suites located in the main lodge. All the better for de-fragging the mind and re-setting the spirit.

Dining at Kalaloch Lodge:

Creekside Restaurant

Creekside Restaurant is located within the main lodge.

The dining is well nigh gourmet, in our experience. You can order breakfast, lunch and dinner.

And, since eating establishments are almighty scarce for 20 miles in any direction (there just aren't any!), we recommend you take advantage of their offer to pack you a brown-bag-lunch. They'll have it ready for you in the morning, and you can be on your way to your next glorious adventures with food and water in hand.

Brief History of Kalaloch Lodge

In 1925, the original 40-acre plot of land, remote, wild, hard to get to, was purchased by Charles W. Becker. Mr. Becker cleverly and resourcefully built the main lodge and cabins with lumber that washed up on shore. At the time the place was named Becker's Inn and Resort Cabins.

When the Olympic Loop Highway was completed in 1931, making travel easier and quicker to his remote Inn, Mr. Becker expanded his resort to accommodate more guests. During World War II, the facilities served as a Coast Guard encampment. After the war, Becker re-branded the property as Becker's Ocean Resort and began receiving guests once again.

The property and resort were annexed into the Olympic National Park in 1953. In 1978 the National park Service purchased the property and renamed it Kalaloch Lodge. It is now operated by Delaware North Companies Parks and Resorts.
