Learn About the Legendary Elk Herd in Sequim

Every town has its own unique charms, myths, and legends. Sequim is no different. One of the many things people come to the Olympic Peninsula for is the chance to glimpse Mother Nature and her inhabitants up close (relatively) and personal. Luckily for you, Sequim is a great place to view wildlife!  If you’re here during whale watching season, you can see those gentle giants breaching the surface right from our beachfront cottages.  Throughout the rest of the year, you may have to head into the hills a little bit for better viewing, but Sequim is also home to a protected and locally-beloved herd of Roosevelt Elk. Learn more about these Elk, and maybe see their majestic beauty in person, when you book a room at the Dungeness Bay Cottages in Sequim this fall.
