Discover what makes Kalaloch Lodge so special.
Perched on a bluff where Kalaloch Creek flows gradually into the driftwood-lined beaches of the Pacific Ocean, Kalaloch Lodge is the only coastal lodging in Olympic National Park. Since 2012, Kalaloch Lodge has been operated by Delaware North Companies, with an eye towards keeping the Olympic Peninsula as pristine as it has always been, through initiatives like the GreenPath® environmental stewardship program.
Today, the Kalaloch Lodge property includes charming rooms in the Main Lodge, cozy cabins, and hotel-style rooms in nearby Seacrest House. It also boasts an acclaimed restaurant and even a standalone store for food, firewood, and other necessities. The history of the property dates back to the 1920's when Charles W. Becker Sr. purchased a 40-acre plot of land where he built the original lodge and cabins. Like the resourceful men and women who came before him, he used the rugged landscape to his advantage, constructing his seaside retreat out of lumber milled from large pieces of driftwood that washed up on he surrounding beaches. Kalaloch's Main Lodge was built in 1953, and in 1978 the entire property was sold to the National Park Service. While some things have changed at Kalaloch over the years, the appeal of the area's natural wonders is still as timeless and captivating as ever.
