Historic lodges offer true essence of Pacific NW

Nothing says the Pacific Northwest like a stately yet rustic mountain lodge surrounded by some of the most spectacular scenery in the country. Even better, make it a historic lodge, built well before the days of cost-cutting and tough environmental regulations.

These lodges are the real deal. They usually are constructed of Northwest timber -- make that old-growth Northwest timber. Lots of big logs and beams, precise stonework and always a fireplace to the sky.

A lot of these are in or near national parks, while others aren't. Here are five options for your vacation or getaway at a historic Northwest lodge:

Lake Quinault Lodge is on the Olympic Peninsula -- a favorite destination since this impressive lodge was built in 1926. Look in the dictionary for the definition of a historic lodge and one can imagine seeing a picture of Lake Quinault Lodge. It's just like those big old East Coast lodges you have heard about.

Lake Quinault Lodge is located in the rain forest and the forest canopy here is thick indeed. The lodge is right on the lake, which is a freshwater mountain lake that is especially enticing during the summer months. You can rent a canoe or kayak from the lodge. Nearby there are trails that take you deep into the Ho Rain Forest.

The lodge itself is rustic but comfortable. There are 91 rooms altogether including some in the main lodge and others in adjacent buildings. The rooms have antique furniture and many have panoramic views of the lake. In fact, a favorite activity at Lake Quinault is just gazing at the lake while enjoying the large lawn area and docks right in front of the hotel.
