The Quirky Motel In Washington You Never Knew You Needed To Stay At
From our luxurious resorts to our laid back
glampgrounds, you’ll find all kinds of unique accommodations here in Washington. But it doesn’t get much more original or interesting than spending the night in a travel trailer resort by the sea, and that’s exactly what The Sou’wester Lodge has to offer.
The Sou'wester is located at 3728 J Place in Seaview.
Seaview is a small community on the Long Beach Peninsula.
This 3-acre property is so quirky and unique.
The Historic Lodge was built in 1892 as Senator Corbett’s vacation home. In the 1950s, part of the second floor was converted into four suites. The motel cottages were also constructed during the 50s, and the (now) vintage trailers were collected over the next decade.
The fleet of vintage travel trailers here is extremely impressive.
You can choose to stay in the lodge or in a cottage, but most people prefer to stay in one of these beauties.
Inside the trailers, you'll find cozy, comfortable space with plenty of vintage details.
Depending on which one you choose, you might have a simple, rustic trailer or one that is fully equipped.
They have all been remodeled to complement their original design.
This is a "glamping" experience you'll never forget.
It's easy to see why this place is so popular.
The outdoor kitchen is open to all guests and features a gas stovetop and oven, a microwave, a toaster, a sink with running water, and plenty of dishes and pots and pans.
Nothing beats cooking under the stars in the summertime.
The Garden Spa and Finnish Sauna is a nice touch.
It has a heated indoor changing room with a private shower and an outdoor cold-plunge bath and shower.
One of the best property features is the Honor Store, where you can browse for items, food, and drinks 24 hours a day using the honor system.
Leave some cash in the collection box or keep track of what you took and pay when you check out.
This charming little vintage resort is just a few blocks from the beach and close to plenty of nature trails.
They also have an art trailer that showcases the creativity of local artists, and seasonal onsite massages are available as well.
