Lochaerie Cabins

Dateline: Bernie: June 14, 2011
Note: To follow our Olympic Park adventure from beginning to end, choose Plans are made from the index at right.

The hunt for a perfect place to stay was rewarded even as we drove down North Shore Road of Lake Quinault. The trees were hugh and the lake was right there down the slope. As we pulled into the Lochaerie Resort Cabins drive we knew that this was going to be a great home for a few days.


Our initial welcome was by a bird we New Englanders had never seen before - a Steller jay. It looks like a blue jay but is a solid vibrant blue with a black head.

The cabins at Lochaerie's story began in 1926 as a boarding house. The cabin we were in is Cabin Olympus built as one of the first cabins in 1926.

We met Tom Iversen (our University of Washington alumni connection) upon our arrival. He was totally welcoming. Giving us the layout of the place and tour of our cabin (thanks again for letting us in early). Later Joey, Lizzie and Chaz (I was exhausted from our hiking) met Chris Inversen, the other half of this charming place.

Upon settling in, off we went for some touring and hiking.
