A delightful old time general store and two cafes are within easy walking distance, while two restaurants for fine dining are only a short five minute drive. Our Inn is in the Amanda Park community that serves as the Gateway to the greater Lake Quinault area, the Quinault River valley, and Quinault Rain Forest. Many people say that the Quinault Rain Forest offers more than the Hoh. Superior guided salmon and steelhead fishing starts in our front yard. Come join us for a night, a weekend, or longer, and discover the wonders of the Quinault Rain Forest. The Quinault River Inn is proud to be a recipient of the Tripadvisor certificate of excellence three years in a row, including our most recent award.

Winter Weather Excites!

The Quinault Rainforest lives up to Nature's billing with record rainfall the first two weeks of December.  The Olympex weather research project by NASA is in full swing documenting Nature's best winter weather assault. Check it out at The Quinault River has often surged over its banks and presents an exciting scene. Fortunately, our campus is well above any flood stage possibilities. Of particular note; our area waterfalls are at their very best. Yes it rains, but with preparation, the displays are well worth seeing. Come visit the Rainforest at its best!

OLYMPEX in the Quinault Valley!

The Quinault River Inn is cooperating with OLYMPEX meteorologists working on this exciting weather project. Sophisticated weather monitoring equipment will be placed on our grounds and provide data collection to help NASA and UW evaluate and improve its latest earth-observation satellite the GPM (Global Precipitation Measurement) satellite.

Eagles above the Quinault River

The Quinault River from the front deck of the Inn Eagles are being seen daily soaring above the river and roosting in the towering Douglas Firs and Western Red Cedars that grace the river banks. Pairs have been common and occasional aerial battles occur with intruders. The Eagle population has been increasing dramatically across the western United States and we are blessed with their presence and numbers here in the greater Quinault Valley and Quinault River basin.

Elk family visits the Inn!

Over the years, Elk have visited the far bank of the Quinault River directly across from the Inn, but only sporadically. Lately however, we have had repeated visits from this small herd of about 7 animals. No large males have been sighted, but be sure to check out the calfs being watched over by one of the females, maybe the mother?

In the Quinault language, the word “panlaswhas” means “Time to gather native blackberries”, and is associated with the month of July. That time is now, and our guests are invited to share in the abundance. The perimeter of our campus is ringed with native blackberries in full bloom. Come and enjoy nature's bountiful fruit!
