Our extended family of 5 (three adults, a teenager, and a 4-year-old) spent several days in the Orchard Suite at the Miller Tree Inn in late August 2007. We stumbled across the inn somewhat accidentally (we had hoped to stay in one of the lodges inside Olympic National Park, but they were all booked) - but we saw the good reviews on TripAdvisor and decided to give it a try. We were not disappointed.

As many reviewers have commented, Bill and Susan are about the nicest people you could ever hope to meet. As we pulled into the driveway on arrivla, Bill came outside, greeted us by name and helped us carry in our luggage. Both he and Susan are kind and personable, yet not intrusive - which can be a tricky balance to strike at smaller inns like this! Any time we had questions or wanted to chat, they would happily do so; at the same time, they respected our privacy, and they never imposed themselves. They're both extremely knowledgeable about the area (Bill was actually born in the house) and gave us all kinds of detailed information about where to go and what to do - everything from when to hit which beach at low tide to see the tidepools to how to skirt Port Angeles traffic while driving to Hurricane Ridge. We happened to be staying at the inn during Bill and Susan's anniversary, so we had an innsitter named Mary for the two days that Bill and Susan went on vacation. Mary was just as nice and competent, and had that great balance of attentiveness that wasn't intrusive. Both Mary and the Bill-Susan combination served up great breakfasts each morning - anything from gingerbread pancakes with lemon butter to a southwestern-style frittata - always with plenty of fresh fruit, pastries, meat (usually sausage or bacon), and eggs on request. This was a particular treat in Forks, which has pretty limited eating-out options (the primary choices are pizza, burgers, or Mexican).

The property itself is pleasant and comfortable, though not luxurious - it's just simple country comfort. The grounds are lovely, with pastoral views in three directions (the other direction looks toward tiny "downtown" Forks), and lots of charming features like a tandem bike in the garage. Some mornings and evenings we could step outside the Orchard Suite and see herds of elk in the far field (you have to walk or drive up the road to get a good view - but it's only a 5-10 minute walk). There's also an outdoor jacuzzi under the trees, which is a welcome treat after a long day of hiking.

The main house was built in the 1920s and is full of character. It has plenty of books, games, and videos and a piano in the living room, and is constantly stocked with coffee, tea, and snacks. The Orchard Suite is a newer addition - it doesn't have the architectural charm of the main house, but is clean and comfortable, and has the convenience of a kitchenette. I should note that, while the Orchard Suite technically sleeps 5 (between a king bed, a sofabed, and a rollaway cot), it can get quite cramped with that many people, particularly because there's very little storage space for luggage, clothing, etc. (I ended up putting most of our clothes in the drawers in the kitchenette!) But we also had an unusual group - three adults, a 16-year-old, and a small child. Two adults and one or two younger children would be much more comfortable - and for a couple, it would be very spacious. Some older relatives of ours stayed in the main house for a couple of days, and their rooms were very comfortable.

Also, the inn's location is great for exploring Olympic National Park. The park itself is enormous, and there are no roads or accommodations in the center, so there's no way to avoid lots of driving if you want to see different areas of the park. But Forks is central enough for manageable day trips to many different areas - Sol Duc Hot Springs and Lake Crescent, the Hoh Rainforest, the Mora area beaches, etc. It's also far less touristed than the Port Angeles / Port Townsend area. The beaches near Forks are quite spectacular, particularly Second Beach (which involves an easy 20-minute walk through the forest). Forks itself is nothing special - it's just a small, mostly blue-collar logging town - but I liked its authenticity and general lack of tourist-trap shops. And if you're going to stay in Forks, the Miller Tree Inn is perfectly situated - just on the outskirts of the town, so you really get the rural feel, but close enough that you could walk to the main intersection in 10-15 minutes (this is a VERY small town).

All in all, we were extremely pleased with our stay at the Miller Tree Inn - it was comfortable and pleasant and served as the perfect base for exploring Olympic NP. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend it, or to return ourselves.

The owners of this property are extremely friendly and obviously love running a B&B - they make every effort to make your stay comfortable and fun, and they are incredibly knowledgeable about the area. We stayed for one night in the Blue Jay room, which has a private bathroom across the hall, but that was totally fine. The decor is old-fashioned and very homey. The dining options in Forks are pretty limited, and the breakfast at the inn was just OK, but the scenery and surroundings on the olympic peninsula are just lovely and this is a great choice if you are looking for a comfortable and affordable place to stay and don't want to camp.

The Miller Tree Inn is the best place to stay in Forks. The hosts' hospitality, openness, breakfasts, snacks and local insight are priceless. This was our second stay at the Miller Tree Inn. Be sure to tell the hosts your plans, they tactfully make suggestions that will improve your experience, such as looking up the low-tide time and suggesting that is when you should be at Ruby Beach.

Everything was comfortable and clean. They have guest refrigerator space, which we used to keep our Pacific Pizza leftovers from one night until we ate them the next evening.

"Local" sites that I recommend: the Forks Lumber Museum, so that you can understand the purpose of a National Forest; Ruby Beach; Cape Flattery (the best part-well worth the walk); and while passing through Sequim - Purple Haze organic lavender farm (the farm, not the in-town store).

Bill and Susan are the owners of this B&B. You are made to feel welcome from the moment you arrive. There is practically no check-in but a complete explanation of what is available. You have a access to the complete downstairs and there is always food available. Bill has an incredible ability to remember guests' names and introduces guest to others so that everyone feels welcome. Susan and Bill are also very knowledgeable about the Olympic Peninsula and they offer to make any dinner reservations in the area.

The breakfasts were different each day and delicious. You are also welcome to seconds on everything.

The rooms are varied so that a single person, or a family, could stay there at a reasonable price. This place was a hit for, not only my wife and me, but our close friends traveling with us.

Thank you Susan and Bill.

We stayed here for two nights over the 4th of July and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. It is a great base location to visit many parts of the Olympic National Park. Susan and Bill were so friendly and helpful from our first call to follow up after our activities. The rooms are wonderful, beds super comfy and the breakfast is delicious. Bill grew up in the area so is full of great tips to make your exploration even better. Enjoy!
