There is nowhere better to be in the summer than on the western shores of Hood Canal. Besides pure relaxation and breathtaking views, summer brings daytime low tides for shellfishing and beachcombing. Have a blast with the opening of crab season on the 4th of July. Or feel your cares drifting away with the tides while kayaking or boating on Hood Canal. Hike beautiful mountain vista trails, or equally photographic waterfall trails in the foothills of the Olympic mountains.
The peak season has arrived, so check our availability calendar and book directly with us to avoid the booking fees charged by the big online travel sites.
Why Hood Canal is the best place to be this summer…

Hood Canal is known for its oysters and clams. Are there low tides during your stay? Gathering clams and oysters is only practical on most beaches during the daytime on tides lower than 2 feet, although minus tides are better. If you’d like to try shellfishing, bring old tennis shoes, rubber boots, or aqua socks to wear on the beach. Bring a bucket and a rake to get clams. On most beaches you can just rake down to the clams since they are close to the surface. Be sure to fill in your holes. Bring an oyster shucking knife and a pair of gloves. Oysters shells are very sharp so you will want to wear gloves when you open them with a knife. An oyster knife is much different than a regular knife so if you love to eat oysters be sure to bring one along. Bring beach towels or old towels. The towels in the houses are for bathing and not the beach. Don’t forget your shellfish license. You can buy them at the Brinnon store. You can buy an annual license or a 1-3 day license. Everyone has to have one even if you are on private property.

They often have oysters and clams in Quilcene at Twana Roadhouse or Quilcene Village store. The vacation home kitchens are stocked with cookware and utensils for preparing your meals. Some kitchens will have seasonings, but you should bring your favorites with you. Prepare your dinner then sit outside with your bounty and a beverage and take in the waterfront view, seals, eagles, and the changing tide.
