Log Cabin Resort. Photos and info about the Log Cabin Lodge Resort at Lake Crescent in the Olympic National Park, including lodging and dining options.
Nestled between trees and water, the Log Cabin Resort may not be called fancy, but the rustic accommodations are buoyed by location, location, location.
This beautiful and peaceful spot on the sunny north shore of pristine Lake Crescent is a perfect family vacation spot. Large green lawns sweep from the resort down to the lake making the ideal spot for lazing by the sunny shore while the kids run and play.
There's enough to do on Lake Crescent to keep a busy family occupied. Choose from boating, paddle boarding, kayaking, hiking, biking and more. And it's close enough for day trips to nearby attractions, like Hurricane Ridge, Hoh Rainforest, Marymere Falls, Sol Duc River Valley, Port Angeles, Forks and many coastal beaches.

The Resort began as the Log Hotel, originally a two story log cabin built in 1895 by Mr. Saunders of Port Townsend, WA. The Log Hotel was the first hotel built on the shores of Lake Crescent. It was built entirely of peeled cedar logs, with an observation tower, main lounge with large fireplace and dining room with bedrooms on the upper level.
After it burned down in 1932, the current Log Cabin Lodge was built on the site in the early 1950s, which by then had become part of the Olympic National Park.
Across Lake Crescent on its south shore and out of view of the Log Cabin Lodge sits Lake Crescent Lodge, which is another Olympic National Park facility. Follow these links for more info on Lake Crescent, Lake Crescent Lodge, and associated food and lodging options.
