I write this review from a point of extreme ambivalence. On the one hand, the Miller Tree Inn is a somewhat unattractive property that is plastered in Twilight memorabilia and smells like grandma's house. On the other, the welcome we received from the surrogate caretaker (Bill and Susan were on vacation) was absolutely superlative.
The woman in charge of our reception was amazing. She was extremely friendly and professional, freely giving really useful tips on the area.
The breakfasts were really tasty, providing a wide variety of hot and cold entrees. I still dream of the apple french toast.
The little touches: lots of little snacks were available to guests at all hours. It was nice to be able to grab some cookies and hot cider after a long day of hiking. Each room also has a thoughtful selection of sodas, glassware, and cutlery.
The location: Forks itself is a dreary, downtrodden area. But if you're looking to visit the southern/western parts of ONP, this is the best option I was able to find. Driving from Port Angeles to visit the Hoh Rainforest or Lake Quinault is simply a waste of time.
The Miller Tree Inn is an old farmhouse that has been expanded over the years. It definitely retains that feel, with lots of thin 1970s wood paneling and a cacophony of old decorations in every nook and cranny. The house has been christened one of the houses of a Twilight character, and the Inn (like nearly all of Forks) will not let you forget it. Everywhere you look, there are Twilight books, DVDs, sheet music, etc. The decor just wasn't my cup of tea, and it was a little bit musty/dusty.
So, in my mind, the Miller Tree Inn is like grandma's house with all of the pros and cons that come with it (including a really adorable cat).
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Three-story 1916 farm house, located on the edge of town. 8 guest rooms each have a private bath, TV/DVD player and free WiFi access. 3 of these rooms have a whirlpool tub and gas fireplace. A full, hot, sit-down breakfast is included in the room rates. The inn serves as a base to explore the west side of Olympic National Park, including the Hoh Rain Forest (45 minutes away) and the Pacific Ocean at LaPush and Rialto Beach (20 minutes away). Recently, it has become a stand-in for the Cullen House, on tours exploring sites mentioned in Stephenie Meyers' "Twilight" book saga. However, our inn looks nothing like the Hollywood version, which is located in Portland, OR. ... more less
