Climbing to the top of Col. Bob is a challenging enough hike that you want a day where you can take advantage of the tremendous views once you get there! Last Tuesday was one of those days. We had heard from a couple of our guests that enough of the snow had melted so that […]
There’s been lots of activity here at Lochaerie these last few months. We have a couple of great guys from the Harbor that have been working diligently on jacking up Cabins Angeles and Storm King and re-shaking the exterior waterside walls. All the rain we’ve had in January and February hasn’t made their job easy! […]
We love to read what our guests write in the cabin journals as they share life events and their experiences here at Lochaerie and as they explore the Olympic Peninsula. Here are just a few of the journal entries folks have written this last year. Angeles: July 27 – We came here for our […]
In the first half of November we had almost 23 inches of rain here at Lochaerie. There was so much water flowing through the creeks and streams that there were many washouts up and down the North Shore Road and around the Visitor’s Center as well as many trees that fell across power lines and […]

It was like a smorgasbord of berries! Sadly, the National Park isn’t doing much to maintain the trails right now, so they’re a bit […]
Walter and Skyler turn one year old this month. (May 2014) They’ve turned out to be sort of like little puppy cats. They love the activity here at Lochaerie and want to be where the action is! They think our guests are such fun and will hang out around various cabins waiting to see what […]
Tom and I have traveled back and forth between Lochaerie and Seattle frequently for many years. We’ve always driven by the Nisqually Basin and invariably have said “We need to go there!”, but have never taken the time. Yesterday, we decided to make a special trip and spend the day. What an amazing place this […]
The Fletcher Canyon Trial is a great trail if you’re looking for a really good workout in a beautiful area! Even though it’s only two miles to where the trail stops, there are spots that are very steep. Much of the trail is in the Col. Bob Wilderness area so the trail can only be […]
