    This place is cool. There are lots of games around the lobby. The rooms are nice with a little patio and eating area.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Manitou Lodge Bed and Breakfast Forks

    Cozy lodge in a woodland setting

    from

    A group of 3 friends and I stayed at the Manitou Lodge this weekend, while hiking in the area. We shared the Cedar suite, which has two rooms separated by a door, and one (nice) bathroom. The larger room contains a table and chairs for relaxing or dining.

    We loved the friendly proprieter, lodge great room with fireplace, and cozy rooms. This is not a fancy place, but comfortable and well-priced. They also have some nice details like wine glasses and openers sitting out in the lobby (byob) and excellent soft sheets!

    Breakfast is conveniently served in your refrigerator. My friends and I enjoyed a casual and private breakfast in our suite. The food was not great, but there was plenty of it.

    In sum, we'll definitely be staying at the Manitou the next time we're on the Peninsula. Highly recommended.

    Forest Hideaway

    from

    Great location, 3 miles from Rialto Beach, close to the Hoh Rain Forest, etc. We stayed at the Manitou Lodge in late August, 2005. It's a 1970's cabin on 10 acres of forest, west of Forks. It's a little hard to find, but worht the search. The hosts were nice, helpful but inobtrusive. Rooms are woodsy and cute. Main room in the lodge has fireplace, borad games and books. Very quiet at night, don't go there if you are looking for a party atomosphere.

    Nice, comfortable B&B

    from

    My wife and I enjoyed our rather brief retreat at the Manitou Lodge B&B. The Lodge is situated in some thick woods about 10 minutes from the beaches of Olympic National Park. Nice location. The breakfast was OK. Convenient for those looking to eat-and-run, which isn't always easy at B&B's.

    We left Seattle on the 07:55 ferry to Baimbridge. We had a nice relaxing day travelling through Olympic park, took time to hike to Marrymere and Sol Duc falls, and still had plenty of time to eat dinner in Forks*, check in to the Manitou, and spend a nice relaxing evening watching the sunset at Rialto Beach. So for those of you wondering what your schedule should be in Olympic. Take your time!

    As far as the town of Forks goes - I was expecting a vibrant tourist community with a nice variety of restaraunts and shops. NOT! Forks ended up being a bleak, depressed, rather inhospitable town. Do not plan on spending much time there. If you are planning on eating lunch or dinner before going to Manitou Lodge, you may be better off stopping at one of the cafes along the highway before Forks.

    All-in-all, Manitou Lodge is a cozy lodge in a great location for beach-goers.

    Bed... and Breakfast?

    from

    Well, we just returned from a trip to the Olympic Peninsula where we stayed at the Manitou Lodge, located a few miles from Forks, WA. Personally, we don't usually stay at B&B's because they tend to be a little over priced and can be a crap shoot, but their website was great and it looked like a cool place. Unfortunately, our stay at Manitou was less than stellar. The room was nice enough (we stayed in the Lady of Guadalupe - upstairs in the main lodge); it was well decorated, very clean and the bed was great. But, there were definitely some issues. The breakfast they served was pathetic (when you advertise as a Bed & Breakfast, the breakfast should be a positive feature). They serve a "breakfast basket" which is put in your frig the night before. It was basically a continental breakfast, VERY heavy on the carbs. The juice was actually "orange drink." Also, I emailed ahead of time to let them know one of us was vegetarian, and I was emailed back saying it would be taken care of. Well, it wasn't. When I went to tell someone about it, no one could be found. Another problem, the couple next to us were LOUD (not really the fault of the lodge). The man read aloud most of the evening (it sounded like NPR turned way up) and he snored, even louder than he spoke. Luckily they were only there for our first night. The second night we had a nice quiet couple next to us. My last pet peeve was the show tunes being played constantly in the main lodge great room. We tried to turn them off once when we were eating breakfast, but within a few minutes they were back on (I was unconsciously humming Jesus Christ Superstar all day). Let's just say we aren't coming back!

    Secluded Hideaway

    from

    A quiet, secluded, wooded, hideaway just four miles from Rialto Beach where you can find amazing 'sea stacks' and driftwood formations that stagger the imagination. We stayed in the lodge itself amid what I would like to think of as rustic elegance

    Great Location in the Woods

    from

    We don't usually stay in B&B's because we don't want a big, fancy breakfast & don't want to eat breakfast at a specific time - so, for us, the "do it yourself" breakfast was great! It was actually a factor in our decision to stay there. People who like fancy, elegant B&B's might not like the Manitou Lodge. The lodge is in a beautiful, wooded location just a short drive from the ocean. The large, public Great Room was casual & "homey". We enjoyed our stay very much.

    Worth the drive

    from

    My second time staying at this beautiful location. I was expecting the same wonderful breakfast as last time and things have changed. Breakfast is given to you the night before in your refrigerator and you heat it and eat it when you want to. It is great if you want to eat breakfast in bed with no makeup, but not what I would consider your typical bed and breakfast. Location is great and the hostesses are more than accommodating.

    Perfect Romatic Getaway

    from

    The Lodge is beautiful; the rooms lovely; the bed comfortable as could be; the breakfast large and delicious and the innkeeper friendly and responsive to any request. We spent two perfect days and nights hiking stunningly beautiful beaches and old growth forests, returnign to a cozy lodge with a fire made just for us. I highly recommend the Manitou as a destination spot for a weekend on the Olympic Penninsula.

    Never went and never will

    from

    We had heard this was a great B and B and hoped to go. Unfortunately, we had to cancel our reservation. As we cancelled with plenty of notice, we hoped to get in writing an acknowledgement of this cancellation, so that our credit card would not be charged. After several requests via email which were never responded to, the owner hung up on me when I called to ask for an email confirmation. He stated that he had no time to put things in writing and that he was an ethical person.He was so rude that I cannot imagine he is in the tourist business. I do not recommend trying this B and B though it looks so nice on paper.

    ... So I must say that this group has to go into that outstanding category with our 64 day experience back in 2007. I could tell from early on that this group had something special with their postings of our roll call. With that in mind I offered to lead several more meetings after our first meeting on the 15th of April. Our second meeting got off to a rocky start with some overbooking problems in the Crow’s Nest, but ...

This is where the books were written and where they filmed all of the buildings and stuff. We saw several of the places and didn't even know it, including the Hoh Rain Forest where the vampires fed. We picked up a few fliers and a book about the city and the book/movie to read later.

    Finally, with a glimpse into an imagined window of a long ago era, each canoe pulled in close to shore, stopping in front of the village Chief. They raised their paddles in salute. The steersman/captain stood and addressed the village Chief. He/she thanked the Chief for their hospitality and asked for a blessing for a safe voyage. As the Chief stood, with arms raised in benediction, we silently asked for our own blessing for a safe and uneventful ...
