Regarding the June 29 Daily World article, “Quinault property owners wonder about lake closure,” I was misquoted by Amelia Dickson when she wrote that I said that with the ban on swimming and boating “there’s no reason to visit Lake Quinault with the restrictions in place.”
What I actually said was that our guests are disappointed that they can’t be out on the lake and enjoy the amenities of being able to use our canoes and kayaks and to be able to swim and fish. However, there are many reasons why folks would want to come to Lake Quinault and the Quinault Valley even with these restrictions in place — exploring the area and the natural beauty by hiking, biking, or just having the opportunity to relax and enjoy the amazing vegetation and wildlife.
Tom and I are proud to share Lochaerie Resort and this beautiful spot with our guests and look forward to being able to share lake activities with them again in the future.
Editor’s note — The Daily World stands by the quote as reported.
