Romantic Beach Weekend Getaway in the Olympic Peninsula
Note: We recommend that you stay overnight in two different locations to prevent long evening drives.
First night: Stay in Port Townsend at the Victorian-inspired Palace Hotel (rooms from $130/night), which offers vintage-décor rooms and suites (some with chandeliers over soaking tubs). Or, for a more luxe stay, head 20 miles south to The Resort at Port Ludlow (rooms from $159/night), which offers in-room spa treatments, gorgeous views over Ludlow Bay, and a golf course. The downside? It's far from many sites listed here.
Second night: We recommend the 1916 Lake Crescent Lodge (rooms from $150/night), which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and located just west of Port Angeles. This rustic retreat sits on the shores of the 8 ½-mile long Lake Crescent, with hiking trails and historic ambience. Warm up on cool nights next to the stone fireplace in the antique-decked lobby or bask out on the sun porch on sunny days. For extra privacy, reserve a beachfront cottage. Open May through October.
