The Inn at Lucky Mud

44 Old Chestnut Drive , Skamokawa, WA 98647 USA (Show map)


Our elegant custom home overlooks a private 18-hole disc (frisbee) golf course in the Pacific Northwest Willapa hills. Abundant wildlife will visit you from 80 acres of forest; there is fishing in our large pond and nearby river, and hiking trails deep into state forest land. Down the country road is the Skamokawa National Historic District and 20,000 acres of Columbia River national wildlife refuges for kayaking and canoeing, unchanged since the time of Lewis and Clark. Our county is a step back in time--there are no stop lights anywhere.

Fantastic, fantastic, fantastic! Need I say more. These people and their B & B, are a treasure. Great food, music and the location is superior. Well worth the detour off the beaten path. We are already planning our next visit.

We've stayed At the Inn at Lucky Mud many times. we've also given gift certificates to 3 of our friends and they were also impressed with the inn.We traveled a lot and we have never stayed at a place that impressed us more. Jessica and Sunrise are great hosts, the setting is beautiful, the service and the food is outstanding and the cost is modest.

Signature Dish

freshly-caught wild Columbia River salmon
"Know your fish monger," as Mario Batali says. We do! Succulent, rich salmon fillets, sometimes with a light mustard and lavender dressing, sometimes with a garlic butter and fresh herb sauce. Include a fresh garden salad, vegetable in season (such as sauteed green beans, almonds, and lemon), basmati rice, and a dessert from Jessica the Dessert Goddess.
