Visiting the Olympic Peninsula

Make memories that will last for a lifetime. Plan a romantic getaway and enjoy endless day trips on the Olympic Peninsula. The Olympic National Park is a vast wilderness with almost a million acres of mountains, forests and beaches. Whether hiking the miles of trails, visiting the Hoh Rain Forest, biking on the Olympic Discovery Trail, or beach-combing on the Dungeness Spit on the way to the New Dungeness Lighthouse, there’s endless adventure. Try golfing at nearby golf courses, fishing, kayaking or sailing on the ocean, skiing or sightseeing at Hurricane Ridge. Take in the magnificent sea stacks at Ruby Beach, Rialto Beach or Cape Flattery. No matter the adventure, George Washington Inn is centrally located just minutes from all of it. And, to top it off, you can hop on the ferry for a day trip to Victoria and the world-renowned Butchart Gardens. You name it… it’s here!

Discover the Olympic Peninsula


Sequim (pop. 6,600+) is small-town America. It has many unique gift shops, murals, antique stores, galleries and fine restaurants. The sun shines in the Sequim Valley more than anywhere else in Western Washington. The “rain shadow” effect, caused by the Olympic Mountains, shelters the valley from excessive rain. May brings the oldest continuous festival in Washington State, the Sequim Irrigational Festival.

Averaging just over 20 inches of rainfall per year and seldom any snow, the winters are mild and the summers are pleasant.

What our Guests are Saying:

Beautiful setting this May overlooking the water toward Victoria Island and a great central location to explore the Olympic Peninsula. Both innkeepers were friendly and helpful. The included breakfast was interesting and different each day with gourmet home cooking in multiple courses. Rooms were immaculate and the common area interesting. The grounds were beautiful and had deer wandering the lawns and fields. Not prime time for the flowers, but when the lavender is in bloom, it would be even more inviting!SLtag
