The story of the Quinault River Inn
Eight years ago, Peter and Barbara Bailey purchased the property now known as the Quinault River Inn. The Inn is located in
Amanda Park, a small rural community that serves as the Gateway to the Greater Quinault Valley and Quinault Rain Forest.
Occupying a beautiful four acre campus and almost 400 feet of river frontage, the Inn has undergone a complete renovation.
The Baileys take pride in the results and hope that you will have the opportunity to enjoy our unique lodging facilities.
Briefly, all rooms at the Inn boast hand-made White Pine furniture, quality beds and bedding, cedar accent walls, renovated bathrooms, and other quality amenities. Original Coastal Salish artwork and stunning black and white photography from Mr. James R. Stafford, one of the Northwest's most famous vintage photographers, distinguish every room. Pride in our facility extends to daily room maintenance as well.
Exterior renovations include a spectacular all cedar covered deck that graces the river front side of the Inn. Guests delight in the Old World feel of the Inn as they enjoy the spectacular riverfront serenity in all kinds of weather and at any time of day! Outlining the campus is a massive old growth Western Red Cedar split rail fence of unique construction that was skillfully hand split, with mortise and tenon joints cut by chainsaw. Additional decorative fencing highlights the riverfront views and the RV parking sites. Landscape lighting is distinctive.
You will enjoy walking the grounds, viewing the serenity of the passing river life and marveling at the dance of the Hummingbirds. Bald Eagles, Osprey, Elk, River Otter, and other wildlife are also commonly seen from the deck of the Inn. Many of our guests enjoy an evening campfire on the bank of the river as twilight darkens the mountains and forests before you. We even supply the wood!
In their second year as managers of the Inn, Stacey and Rusty West are ready to greet you upon arrival. Stacey and Rusty are fixtures of our local community; always ready to assist neighbors in need. Stacey’s energy, thoroughness, and management skills are evident everywhere, while Rusty serves as the Youth Pastor at a local church and plays a mean guitar. Both are fully engaged in home schooling their son, Colton. The Wests and the Baileys are dedicated to providing quality service, at value rates, for all guests of the Inn and RV sites.
With their commitment to continuously increase guest services and amenities, the Baileys look to a bright future for the Quinault River Inn. Recent new amenities include our complimentary Fitness Center, front lawn Gazebo, and landscape enhancements. A covered BBQ pavilion will be coming soon!
Visit the Inn one time and you will not only be pleased with your stay, but be enticed to follow the continuing development story with future visits. We welcome the weary traveler, urban tourist, nature hiker, and regular Salmon fisherman and hunter to follow our distinctive signage and Salish Indian logo to the beauty of our rural setting. The Rain Forest beckons!
