What You'll Get
For years, bears had the market cornered on wilderness hospitality, wooing guests with their famously friendly hugs and a turndown service that included a salmon on every pillow. Enjoy a woodsy getaway with a human touch with today's Groupon: for $89, you get a one-night stay (with up to one other guest) at Olympic National Park & Forest lodges in Quinault or Forks (up to a $219 value). Today's deal also gives lodgers a discount of 15% off lodge dining and retail, plus buy one, get one free admission to rain-forest tours. Choose between the following lodging options:
- Lake Quinault Lodge, located in Quinault
- Kalaloch Lodge, located in Forks
Olympic National Park & Forest lodges on Washington’s Olympic Peninsula facilitate easy access to the picturesque climes of the coast, temperate rain forest, and inland lakes. Nestled on the banks of a tranquil lake, Lake Quinault Lodge is the only lodge in the park situated inside the rain forest and offers shelter-seekers a variety of cozy accommodations, including rooms with lake views for tranquil gazing and rooms with fireplaces for long days of Santa training.
The Kalaloch Lodge sits atop a perch that overlooks the ocean and miles of meandering coast, its comfy Seacrest rooms and charming log cabins providing close proximity to rain-forest hiking trails and the beach. Thanks to the Kalaloch Lodge's location within the Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary, in addition to the breathtaking landscape, guests may have the opportunity to glimpse puffins, sea otters, and bald eagles, the only birds officially granted American citizenship by George Washington.
Supplement your stay with buy one, get one free admission for a rain-forest tour, during which a friendly guide can point out the best vistas for photographers and explain why the Roosevelt elk refuses to visit Mount Rushmore to see its estranged cousin, Eleanor. Today's deal also includes 15% off retail purchases in the lodge stores and dining at the Roosevelt Room (for Lake Quinault lodgers) and Creekside Restaurant (for Kalaloch lodgers), plus the option to book additional consecutive nights at a discounted rate of $119.

- We like how easy it is to walk just across the road for an enchanted rainforest hike any time of year. The Roosevelt Room has a skilled chef, good service and food. – Viajante48, Lake Quinault Lodge, TripAdvisor
- You're just steps away from a beautiful beach and the crashing waves, which you can hear from your cabin with the windows open. I would definitely stay here again! – Becky L., Kalaloch Lodge, Yelp, 12/28/08
