Quillayute is listed in Trip Advisor under B&Bs and Inns in Forks, WA, and I wouldn’t quite consider this a B&B or an inn, but we really enjoyed our stay here in August 2012. (It is ranked #1 on Trip Advisor for Forks!)
There are five suites on the property that consist of an outdoor patio with two chairs and a grill, a kitchen, a sitting area with a fireplace, a bedroom and a bathroom. Since they don’t serve breakfast, Blake and I went into town to the local grocery store and picked up food for our next three days. We made dinner every night and drank wine, had cereal in the morning, and packed our lunch every day to take with us on our adventures. The kitchens are fully stocked with the appliances and tools that you would need to cook a meal. And while we had never cooked our own meals on vacation before, it was delightful!
The resort sits on the Quillayute River as the name suggests and is beautiful. In the morning we’d sit outside in our pajamas and watch bald eagles fly around and the local Native Americans fishing in the river for salmon. They also have a trail on the property so you can walk along the river. We found the tree swing and had a go at it. They also have beautiful gardens just outside the rooms. There was the occasional banana slug slinking along too.
Nearby are some famous beaches of Olympic National Park. We were also able to drive to the Hoh Rainforest, and Cape Flattery, the northwestern point of the continental United States.
We had an excellent and relaxing time at Quillayute and would definitely return again if we ever found ourselves in the area. I get the feeling it books fast, so I would recommend booking far in advance, especially in the summer.
