Spending two nights at Lake Crescent Lodge, then driving down to Portland. I need suggestions on the night between Seattle and Lake Crescent, and a place to spend the night somewhere between Portland and Seattle on the way back. I was thinking of the Resort at Ludlow Bay for the former, and perhaps something near Mt. Ranier or Mt. St. Helena for the latter. Looking for natural beauty, wonderful atmosphere. Can be rustic or luxury. Just read the reviews for the Resort at Ludlow and afraid it sounds a little too sanitized, too golfy. This is for August. I don't want to do an inordinate amount of driving but don't want to be with the crowds either. Thanks for the help.
