Our Washington State Governor has done a re-haul of the phases for reopening. Our county, Clallam, is now part of the Northwest region that also includes Jefferson, Kitsap and Mason counties. We will be linked to them in regards to how many new cases of Covid per 100,000 residents, how many hospitalizations, etc. We have progressed to Phase 2. Below, we will spell out what this means.
At the Inn, our common areas are open to pass through to check in/out, and pick up items. We are following the reduced service guidelines for restaurants, because of this, we have temporarily suspended our hot, sit-down breakfast offering. Instead, a to-go breakfast will be available to eat in your room or take with you for later in the day.
The road to Rialto Beach has been repaired and is open again. Mora, Ozette and Kalaloch (Beaches 1-6 and Ruby Beach) as well as Third Beach are open for day use. The Hoh rainforest, Sol Duc(road is not plowed during the winter months, so road will be closed during times of heavy snowfall.) and Lake Crescent, Hurricane Ridge (open on weekends during the winter months), Staircase and Heart O’ the Hills areas of the Olympic National Park; as well as the rainforest trails at Lake Quinault are also all open for day use. All Olympic National Forest Trails are also open.
Very few areas remain closed, but we are monitoring the status of the National Park’s reopening plans for the last few coastal areas – Second Beach at La Push and Shi Shi. Additionally Cape Flattery and Neah Bay are closed per Makah Tribal information, and First Beach in La Push is also closed per Quileute Tribal Council order until further notice. We have heard rumors that with the availability of the Covid vaccine, LaPush may open soon. We will put this information out as soon as it becomes available.
For our Twilight Fans, The Forever Twilight in Forks Collection is currently open by reservation ONLY, due to orders from the state of Washington. Please check with the Forks Chamber of Commerce at: www.forkswa.com for details.
For fishing, Olympic NP has opened Lake Crescent, Sol Duc River, Gray Wolf River, Dosewallips River, Duckabush River, North Fork Skokomish River, Kalaloch Creek, Cedar Creek, Mosquito Creek and mountain lakes as per normal fishing seasons and regulations.
Washington state and our region, is currently under restrictions. Restaurants may provide in house dining at 25% of capacity. Most, if not all local restaurants will provide take out meals.
Our aim throughout is to help keep guests, the staff team and our wider community as safe as possible.
Some of the Key Steps we’ve undertaken ahead of welcoming guests:
Our Guests can help too.
At this time we are only providing breakfast items to eat in each guest room.
