Where We Stayed

Chuckanut/Bellingham
This is such a unique stay and has made a few lists for top places to stay in Washington.
Tiny room with a balcony overlooking Chuckanut Bay and has a shared hot tub at the main house. Loved staying here and the owners were very welcoming.

Olympic Peninsula near Port Angeles.
We stayed in one of the Adventure Cove A-frame huts that have a shared bathroom and shower. We absolutely loved it. They also have other A-frames right on the beach, many cabins, and camping spots. It's a beautiful place to stay but make sure you eat before coming or have food, since you are a ways from town.;

Oregon Coast
We only got to spend one night here, and unfortunately it was cloudy and rainy, which meant we didn't get to see much of the view. But would love to try and go back to experience a sunset here.

North Cascades National Park
Cozy little place with camping, RV hookups, and cabins. If you're heading into the national park and don't want to camp, this is a pretty good deal for a cabin.

Downtown Seattle
All the luxury you expect from a Hyatt. Right in the center of downtown and not too far of a walk from all the sights that you want to see.
We used our Hyatt points to stay here, so getting it for free was definitely a plus. Check out our credit card blog for more details.

Olympic National Park, coastal area
Right on the beach!!!! If you can reserve it early enough, try to grab one of the spots overlooking the beach, but either way you are just a few steps from the beach and a beautiful sunset. Note: no showers here.
There is also a lodge right next door if you want something more comfortable but expensive.

Columbia River Gorge
The owners were some of the friendliest people we have met. They greeted us at our car, showed us around camp, and even hung out with us by the river for a while. The RV was cozy and the camp had everything you could need. Theres a great brewery not too far away as well.

San Juan Island
We stayed in a glamping tent right on the lake, it was a beautiful place to stay and the breakfast was delicious.
They have other types of accommodation as well though, camping, glamping, lodge, and cabins.

Olympic Peninsula near Port Angeles
Its exactly what to expect from a KOA, comfortable cabins, RV parking, or camping, but there are lots of people. This was a last minute booking for us, but I would stay again.

Oregon Coast
This place is incredibly comfortable and in a pretty great central location along the coast. Make sure you hike down to the beach and into the Devils Punchbowl at low tide.

Mt Rainier National Park
This was our first camping experience in a national park and we enjoyed it a ton. Great place to stay so you don't have to drive all the way up and down the mountain each day. Note: there are no showers here
