Touting itself as the westernmost B&B in the lower 48, the Manitou Lodge is my favorite lodging on the entire Olympic Peninsula. It doesn't feel quite like your typical inn, but instead has the vibe of a wilderness resort—apt for the setting. There are five colorful guestrooms in the main house and another two in a detached cottage (expect Native American art, not doilies and Victorian frills in all seven; the cottage rooms are notably woodsier). There is also a pair of dinky camping cabins (with bathrooms but no tubs or showers) and two pre-pitched tents for those who want to rough it without going too far. Breakfasts are in baskets in your room when you check in, and each unit has a fridge and microwave. You are just 3 miles from Rialto Beach, one of the park's best, and there are trails to other beaches accessible only by hiking just a few more miles away.
