Our gardens and vistas change with each season making Lost Mountain Lodge the perfect vacation spot in Washington State at any time of year. Marvel at velvet green carpets of moss in the Hoh Rain Forest on a hot summer's day. Enjoy views of the Olympic Mountains as you sip hot cocoa and watch the first snowfall. The seven fireplaces at Lost Mountain Lodge keep you warm and cozy when it's cold outside and our refreshing mountain breezes keep the evenings cool should temperatures heat up (we rarely get above a balmy 80-degrees even in summer). Some guests won't miss the chance to hike along Hurricane Ridge in July. Others return every October to kayak the calm waters of Dungeness Bay. Some can't wait for Spring to bike along the Olympic Discovery Trail while others look forward to watching waves pound the rocks at Rialto Beach in the middle of Winter.
The leaves are just beginning to turn, the mountain air is clear and crisp, and sunny warm days make September one of the best times to hike the mountain trails at the Olympic National Park. Patchwork fields of golden hay bales and tall green cornstalks cloak the valley in a magnificent harvest quilt. The Port Townsend Wooden Boat Festival draws tall ships and classic boats from around the world. Stop at a nearby winery for a lazy afternoon picnic and savor the last rays of summer sun.
A fresh dusting of new snow blankets our mountain creating magical views in all directions. Our halls are decked for the Season with simple fir wreaths, fragrant bayberry garlands, and a spectacular 18-foot Christmas tree decorated with snow, bird nests, and shimmering glass icicles. Sit back with a cup of hot cider and watch the snow clouds crest the mountain peaks. Best of all, the aromas of nutmeg and cinnamon fill the Lodge kitchen with the welcoming spirit of the Holidays.
