Avoiding Traffic To Find The Hidden Gems In Olympic National Park

There has never been a better time to visit Olympic National Park. Yes, there are new major highway construction projects, but with a little careful planning and assistance from your local innkeeper, you will enjoy all the Park has to offer with very little inconvenience. Here’s how:

  • First, know where to look for daily road updates from the Park and from the state of Washington. These helpful tools, including daily recorded phone updates at 1-360-565-3131, can help you navigate around any trouble spots.
  • Second, know that the Park is *huge* and there is so much more to see than the “big three” of Hurricane Ridge, Lake Crescent, and Hoh Rainforest. In fact, you can spend an entire week and not see everything amazing the Park has to offer. Click here for our up to date suggested itinerary maps.

With new direct to Seattle, nonstop air routes on Delta Airlines and Alaska Airlines from Atlanta, Baltimore, Boston, Dallas and Charleston, getting here has never been easier. However you get here, you’re welcome at Domaine Madeleine Bed and Breakfast, where you can escape the stresses of life with our casual luxury and modern conveniences. We’re happy to help you plan your trip. The Olympic Peninsula is a beautiful place to visit year-round, but it’s especially amazing in May-June when the tides are lowest, October-November when the salmon and eagles are most active, December for the holidays, and January-March when the crowds are gone and the air is crisp and clear with bright blue skies and occasional rain showers–plus amazing skiing in Hurricane Ridge, one of only 4 ski runs in a national park.

We look forward to seeing you soon.
