I decided to go up the coast for a one night storm watch trip, and luckily ended up here. The super nice owners live on site, and bless her heart, she had to come out into the storm to check me in. I was set up in the perfect location to watch the storm, and the owner made sure I... More

There was a grey whale frequenting this location while I stayed here. I told Glen, I think the owner, that I would love to see it. When I checked out, he told me that he had seen it in the morning & knocked on my door but I must have been in the shower and did not hear him, but... More

I like to find places on my way traveling and this was, as it turned out to be the last place available on the way to Neah Bay. The owners Greg and Anita were so kind and friendly. I had a choice of rooms and chose the # 5 facing the water. It's set up for sleeping a family in... More

We had a reservation in Port Angeles but when we got there the room wasn't acceptable so we decided to head northwest since our goal was to make it to Cape Flattery. We got a last minute reservation at Van Riper's. Gary (retired Navy) was behind the counter, checked us in, easy-peasy. He had a very cheery, friendly disposition. The... More

We were looking for a weekend getaway with a beautiful drive and comfortable place to just relax. We were more than pleased with Van Riper's. The 5 hour drive thru the coastal towns of Washington was just what we were looking for. After reaching our destination, we found the little town to be quiet and peaceful. Our room at Van... More

Stayed here after a couple of times at Mason's. We stayed in the waterfront room and it was SO NICE! Clean, nice and very well set-up. The only downside is they don't allow pets - but otherwise this is the place for us to go fishing. The views from the room and deck are amazing.

My husband and I have stayed here twice. We took a drive in the fall. The leaves were all changing and the drive was beautiful. We ended up way out on the peninsula and stopped at Van Riper’s Resort which is right off the water in Sekiu. When we arrived the staff was super friendly and pointed us to a... More

Van Riper's Resort is a hidden gem! They have waterfront views, RV hook-ups and the most friendly and helpful staff around. Van Riper's isn't just a fishing resort. It was my home-base while I did some sight-seeing and hiking. From Van Ripper's you are accessible to many different outdoor activities such as fishing, hiking, and sight-seeing. Sunrise and sunset were... More

Great location on the bay (but almost everything is in Sekiu); very limited view unless you stay in one of the two largest rooms on the waterfront end of the building. Room was very clean and had all linens, as well as a two burner stove top, mini fridge, microwave, coffee pot, a few dishes, some utensils, and a few... More
