I first experienced the beauty of Lake Crescent Lodge on a quick visit to the Olympic Peninsula of Washington. You know, one of those weekend getaways where you try to fit it all in. The beauty of the lake and the historic lodge impressed me and I lingered for hours, sitting in one of the wooden dock chairs and exploring the trails around the lodge.
I wandered the lodge, looking at the details… the stone fireplace, antiques, the windows overlooking the lake and soon, the sun began to set. The winds were still and the Lake Crescent waters reflected the surrounding mountains and trees. Ducks quietly paddled over in search of treats. I had to leave, but was determined to return and stay longer some time.
Historic Lake Crescent Lodge was built in 1915 and is an ideal base camp for enjoying Olympic National Park, while experiencing the charm of a turn-of-the-century resort.
Fall is an ideal time to plan that overnight stay on the Olympic Peninsula. Three upcoming wine tasting dinners at Lake Crescent Lodge are scheduled for October.
