We stayed here one night while traveling through western Washington on a road trip. Our plan was to only stay here one night. After visiting the area, I wish we had been able to stay several days, as I fell in love with the rainforest scenery here. Quinalt River Inn was a great choice for our stay. We checked in easily and could drive right up to our room to park. The property is lovely with pretty views of the river and surrounding area. Our room was a good size, pleasant with nice amenities. It was quiet at night and we slept fine. We did not have time to sit on the front porch, as we were busy exploring the area, but other people were taking advantage of the porch when we arrived. In the morning we ate at the Quinalt Internet Cafe which is very close to the Inn and featured a good breakfast. While staying in this area we drove the scenic loop around Quinalt Lake and were able to view the rainforest and a few waterfalls. We also stopped and walked "Maple Glade Rain Forest Trail," which was near the Ranger Station. I was utterly amazed at the size and grandeur of the rainforest here. Huge maple trees with moss hanging several feet from branches were all along the trail. It was amazingly beautiful and since it was early evening, we had the place to ourselves. The next day we went to the south shore of Quinalt Lake where there are a number of trails and walked the Falls Creek Loop which was approx. two miles. It featured beautiful rainforest scenery and was a great walking path. I definitely want to come back to this area and explore more of the trails and the rainforest. When I come back, I would definitely stay at Quinalt River Inn again.
