Hike to Tree Root Cave near Kalaloch Lodge

1) Take a Walk on the Beach and visit Tree Root Cave

This is a must-see, no matter what the temperature is outside! The Tree of Life (a.k.a. Tree Root Cave) is an extraordinary tree that has viewable roots and is in no soil. Interesting, right? Grab your jacket, hat, gloves, and don't forget your camera because you do not want to miss this tree; it's like no other. It is located just north of Kalaloch Lodge, a few minutes walk.
Cozy up by the fire with a glass of wine at Kalaloch Lodge

2) Cozy Up by the Fire with a Glass of Wine

Did you know that our wine selection is local? Every wine we serve comes from the state of Washington! Stop by Creekside Restaurant and pick out a bottle of wine (ask the bartender for recommendations) and cozy up by the fire while listening to the waves crash against the shore. Sounds like a perfect night to us!

3) Storm Watching

The best time to storm watch is November through February. The storms coming in from the Pacific Ocean have wind gusts up to 60 miles per hour, and plenty of rain, making it look like it is raining horizontally at times. Swells can be 15 to 20 feet high and they toss fallen logs around the beach. Enjoy watching these storms in the warmth of your cabin, with your fireplace going and hot cocoa or a glass of wine in hand.
