What is New at the Miller Tree Inn?

We have been stocking breakfast in the rooms for a little over a week, now and that seems to be going well.  Our house made cookies and pastries seems to be the favorites for our guests! No new openings or closures of National Park Sites to report.  The Quielute Tribe has now determined that the […]

Breakfast to Go

On August 1, we had to say goodbye to our innkeepers, Ruth and Alan.  Ruth and Alan started working at the Miller Tree Inn in May.  They helped us in countless ways to get ready for guests again after our closure in mid-March due to the pandemic.  We will be forever grateful for their help […]

What is Open in Forks and Olympic National Park?

There is understandably confusion about what area attractions are open in the Forks area, particularly Olympic National Park.  The basic answer for the National Park is that all beaches, hiking trails, etc in the area are open EXCEPT for those that are accessed through tribal lands.  For us that means that first and second beach […]

Gardening on the Olympic Peninsula

Gardening on the Olympic Peninsula and especially, Forks can be a mixed bag.  Though we have fairly mild temperatures in the winter, we are very overcast and rainy for much of the year.  This year, it was especially so.  Our local produce stand delayed their opening until last week because we hadn’t had the right […]

What is Open in Olympic National Park?

Most of the west side attractions of Olympic National Park are open for day use and most of the campgrounds are also open.  Guests of the Miller Tree Inn are able to explore Hurricane Ridge, Marymere Falls, Lake Crescent, Sol Duc Falls, Rialto Beach, the Hoh Rainforest, Ruby Beach and Kalaloch Beaches 1 – 6 […]

Ruby Beach and the Kalaloch Beaches

Ruby Beach is about a 40 minute drive to the south of the Miller Tree Inn along scenic highway 101.  Ruby beach is a favorite of your innkeepers, Bill and Susan.  It is the first place they kissed more than 37 years ago!  Bill tells our guests that Ruby is a dangerous beach because it […]

Rialto Beach is Open!

Rialto Beach opened for day use again on June 18 and we could not be more pleased.  Rialto beach is an excellent place to see tide pool life at low tide.  The best tide pools are about a mile or so down the beach toward “Hole in the Wall”.  Most rocks that are uncovered by […]

The Hoh Rainforest is Open for Day Use!

The number one reason that tourists come to Forks is to see the Hoh Rainforest.  As of June 15, 2020, it re-opened for day use visitors.  The Visitor’s Center at the Hoh, is not yet open, except for the restrooms, but the trails are open and ready for exploration! The Hoh Rainforest is a drive […]

All Are Welcome Here

As with the rest of the world, we too have been following current events and are alarmed and saddened by injustice and inequality.   Our little town of Forks came into the national spotlight last week.  Unfortunately, it was not for the natural beauty of our area or for our connection to the “Twilight” saga.   Some […]
