About Julie

I started fishing our local rivers in 1982 & immediately fell in love with them. Over the years I've fished many other areas in B.C., Oregon & California which I have also enjoyed but the rivers here have always been special for me due to the diversity of the watersheds & fish. The rivers here hold very large steelhead & salmon. It's one of the few areas in the U.S. that still has good numbers of native steelhead, fish that go over 30 lbs! After many years of fishing with friends & family I was able to move here in 2004 & become a full time guide. I love my job & really enjoy meeting people from around the world

Julie purchased this lodge in 2007

Why Julie chose Forks

My day job is as a fishing guide so naturally I also wanted acquire a location for my guests to stay at while they were fishing with me or just enjoying the area.

What makes this lodge unique

The lodge is a great place to access the many activities offered by the Olympic Peninsula. The area is famous for it's steelhead & salmon fishing, the Hoh Rainforest & Olympic National Park. Our local rivers also provide whitewater kayaking & rafting. We are a 15 minute drive to Forks & 30 minutes to Rialto Beach, La Push or the Strait of Juan De Fuca at Sekiu.

Excellent

  • 4 of 5

This is the second time we've stayed at the lodge and have very much enjoyed the location and the lodge. It's on the Sol Duc, close to other rivers, within 30 minutes of the coast, and a plethora of hiking/fishing/boating opportunities.

The lodge itself has most everything you need...pots, pans, knives, roasters, kettles and bowls. Bring what you might feel as essential, but the rest is there.

The management company and owner are extremely responsive and helpful. They want your stay to be first class, and they do their job.

We'll be back again.

Perfect

The house was perfect. It had plenty of space for 8 guys trying to catch a fish or two. Will definitely make a return visit.

Peaceful retreat

  • 5 of 5

We were sorry we only had one evening to spend at the Lodge. It would be a wonderful place to spend more time, gracious and peaceful. A short walk brings you to the Sol Duc river, yet the Lodge is easily accessed from Rte 101. The house has a well stocked kitchen and the beds were extremely comfortable. The evening was slightly chilly, we enjoyed using the gas fireplace.

Great lodge!

  • 4 of 5

My friends/family and I really enjoyed the lodge and had a great time! I traveled with a group of people and we all needed single beds. Larry was happy to turn the large king sized beds into doubles for us. This was perfect for our needs! Very spacious and very clean place to stay!

A couple of things to note:

This is about a 20 min drive from Forks (the closest town). I wouldn't recommend staying here if you are planning on spending your time there. It's too much of a commute. However, it's a great launch spot for exploring the peninsula! Really close to the turn off to head to Cape Flattery!

We found the kitchen to have mostly everything we needed for our needs. However, they did lack in little things like sugar and even a blender. Not a negative, just something to know

Also - we had one married couple with us on our trip. They opted to sleep in the den where there were sofa beds. These beds are quite worn and the mattress is very thin. Just a heads up there as well.

My one and only real complaint about the stay was that we had the power go out on us one night. We found out later this was a planned outage. I feel like we should have been notified of this so we'd be ready for it to happen. Larry said he completely forgot about it himself. However, there were no extra lights anywhere in the lodge (we found lanterns but the batteries were dead).

Overall, though, great trip/stay! Definitely would stay here again!
