Cedar Suite- Rustic & Tranquil Suite at the Manitou Lodge

Family-friendly cabin in Forks
The Manitou Lodge's spacious two-room suite with queen beds in both rooms and a bathroom with a shower.  A sliding glass rear entrance leads onto a covered patio. The Douglas fir walls in the smaller room and salvage-cedar/driftwood trim throughout provide a cabin-like feel. Pets are allowed in this room, please use the pet-fee tab at the top of the online booking page to add the appropriate fee during your reservation. Rates based on double occupancy, additional guests are $30 each, 4 guests maximum occupancy. NO CHILDREN UNDER 10 IN THIS ROOM.

Manitou Lodge is perfectly situated in Forks, Washington. Our accommodations provide guest rooms, cabins and camping on ten acres of coastal rainforest, just 3 miles from Rialto Beach, and 15 minutes west of Forks. Manitou is what a lodge should be – wood, stone, a Great Room with a massive stone fireplace, vaulted ceilings, and furniture you can put your feet up on. Nights in our forest are silent except for the distant rush of the Sol Duc river and occasional interruptions by coyotes and owls.

Originally built in 1970, our Forks WA Lodging is a built around a classic lodge structure whose most striking feature is a huge vaulted-ceiling Great Room with a massive stone fireplace. The numerous couches and chairs in this room provide the space to be with others, and, at the same time, to be private. The Lodge also is home to our lovely Gift Shop which features Native American and Pacific Northwest art, decor, jewelry and more.

Step Outside and Experience the Pacific Northwest

Situated on ten acres of coastal rainforest, our Forks WA Lodging is just about as far west as you can get in the lower 48 states. The property’s hemlocks and spruce are still imposing, and there’s a Western Hemlock on the property well over 1000 years old. The grounds include wonderful trails, bits of whimsy and lovely spots to picnic.

Summer is a delight with sunshine and temperatures that rarely rise above 80 F. With winter come the fish. Local rivers (Sol Duc, Bogachiel, Calawah, Hoh) offer world-class salmon and steelhead fishing. We also experience powerful winter storms which shape our coastline. It’s worth a dose of rain and wind in the face to witness one of these, especially when a couch, fire and warm bed are just a couple of minutes away.

SELF CHECK-IN: Any time after 3pm (no early arrivals, please). Find the card with your name on it at the front door and follow check-in instructions inside. With the convenience of self check-in at our Forks Washington accommodations, you can take your time and arrive at your convenience.

There is something for everybody any time of year in the Olympic National Park and Forks Washington. Explore wilderness beaches such as Rialto Beach, hike in the moss-draped beauty of the Hoh rainforest, fish the plentiful rivers of the region, or enjoy sightseeing.  Forks is also the setting for the Twilight Saga, and hosts the Forever Twilight Festival every fall.

We’re located just a 45 minute drive from the Hoh Rainforest and Sol Duc Hot Springs, and about an hour from Cape Flattery (most Northwestern point in the lower 48 states) and the Makah Reservation and Cultural Museum at Neah Bay. Rialto Beach, spectacularly rugged and log-strewn, is just 3 miles away. The Quileute Tribe resides 9 miles away at La Push, as well as First Beach at LaPush and Olympic National Park’s Second and Third Beaches (not to be confused with Beaches 1-3 south of Kalaloch).

Rialto Beach, the only drive-to beach in the immediate area, is a spectacular, driftwood-strewn beach on the north side of the Quileute river about 3 miles from the Manitou Lodge. The surf is generally heavy, the driftwood logs huge, and the sunsets are magnificent. The Rialto crescent extends for about 1.5 miles and ends with two towering sea stacks, tidal pools, and “Hole-in-the-Wall”, a surf-carved tunnel in a headland. The 18 mile hike north from Rialto Beach to Cape Alava is a favorite with backpackers.

First, Second and Third Beaches extend south from the mouth of the Quileute River. These beaches are long, flat crescents popular with photographers due to sea-stacks (a well-known sea-stack complex, the “Quileute Needles”, lies just offshore), tidal pools, and eagles. Access to Second and Third Beaches requires hikes of 0.5 to 1.5 miles, respectively. The headlands at First Beach and Second Beach can’t be passed, but one can backpack south from Third Beach along the coast for about 17 miles to Oil City.

The Hoh Visitor Center is about 30 miles from us, and the Hoh Rainforest is possibly best known attraction in the Olympic National Park. Average annual rainfall in the Hoh Valley is in excess of 150 inches, and has a spectacular effect on the vegetation. Along the “Hall of Mosses” Trail, the moss-draped maples are extravagantly green year round, so much so that somebody has written that the air appears to be jade-colored. The Spruce Trail follows the glacier-carved Hoh river maple and red alder “bottom”. Scenic raft trips are available in summer along the Hoh River, and guides can be contracted throughout the year for fishing and scenic trips.

Other regional activities near Forks Washington include world-class fishing, mountain-biking, hiking in the Olympic mountains and along the wild beaches that comprise the Pacific Coast portion of the Olympic National Park, or a visit to Cape Flattery, the most Northwestern point in the lower 48 states. A boardwalk recently completed by the Makah Nation, on whose lands the Cape sits, has considerably eased the hike. The views of the Straits of Juan de Fuca, Tatoosh Island, and Vancouver Island from the Cape cliffs are inspiring. While visiting the Cape, you won’t want to miss the outstanding Makah Cultural Center and Museum at Neah Bay. These are just a sampling of the possibilities on the West End. For a more comprehensive look, consult some of the links listed below and visit the Forks Chamber of Commerce Five Day Guide to the West End. Twilight fans won’t want to miss a stop in Forks, WA.

Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Zero communication with the owner, we sent multiple requests and our emails were ignored. This house is not a stand alone. You will share a main room with at least three other couples. It also isn’t a bed and breakfast. If you like remote and outdated this is for you. If you want privacy this place isn’t for you. The “suite” and I use that term loosely is on the first floor. You have two other rooms above you and you can hear everything. Do not recommend. Zero stars.

Liked: Cleanliness
The property was beautiful. The Cedar Suite is downstairs right off the main room. Both beds were overly soft and uncomfortable. The upstairs tenants arrived late the first night and left early both mornings. It was noisy below them. Both the evening and early morning, they were clearly heard talking, laughing, peeing in the toilet, and showering. This disrupted our sleep. We had four guests for the two rooms. The room came equipped with two sets of towels, two coffee mugs, and two water glasses. The on-site employee was available by text only but was prompt with supplying extra towels. This suite was too overpriced for the noisiness and worn-out mattresses.

Extreme experiences
The Great Room at the Lodge was something to write home about. Beautiful, full of adult toys and distractions. The rooms did not reach that level. Toilet seat was broken, sofa less than garage sale quality, poor lighting, not clean enough, and a property contact who never called back. Unacceptable.

4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
This property was rustic but so quiet, in the woods and very atmospheric considering one is going to the Olympic Pen for nature. It is a very close drive to La Push, Rialto beach, and first 1st-3rd beaches. It is 1 hour from the HOH and Kalaloch beaches. I'd say it is more in La Push than Forks (20 mins away).
