SPRING BIRDWATCHING AND WATERFALL HIKES ON OLYMPIC PENINSULA

The redwing blackbirds have returned to our ponds--a sure sign that spring is warming her way across the Olympic Peninsula.

Our idyllic 9-acre estate is a National Wildlife Federation Certified Habitat and spring is a treat for birdwatchers. Ducks, widgeons and the great blue heron all build their nests here at the Lost Mountain Lodge.

Spring is also one of the best times to visit the area to see more than a dozen waterfalls at their peak. Or hike the lower elevation trails laden with delicate fiddlehead ferns and rare trillium.

Guests can also make the most of a 3 or 4-day getaway by taking a day trip to Victoria, B.C. The Butchart Gardens in the Spring is not to be missed with thousands of daffodils, cherry blossoms and fragrant hyacinths. We'll take care of booking all the details for you -- round-trip ferry, double-decker bus tour and your tickets to the Gardens.

With warmer days and calmer waters, it's also a great time to kayak Dungeness Bay out to the historic New Dungeness Lighthouse. We'll put you in touch with the best guide in the area who provides all your gear and then will give you a collapsible cooler and tell you where to get the best cheeses, Artisan breads, smoked wild Pacific salmon and other gourmet treats for a picnic lunch on the beach.

Take advantage of our Spring Fling -- book any 2-night stay in a luxury suite and we'll include a $75 Gift Certificate for Dinner for Two at a nearby bistro featuring local farm-to-table cuisine. But hurry, this offer* is only good until May 15, 2011.
