- Elk Lick Lodge, also known as the Remann Cabin, was built in 1926 by local settler and builder Grant Humes for Frederick Remann as a personal fishing retreat in what became Olympic National Park in the U.S. state of Washington. It was originally built next to the Elwha River, but was moved to higher ground in 1939 to escape the threat of flooding. With the H.H. Botten cabin it is one of only two private fishing cabins to have survived from pre-park days, both built by Humes.Frederick Remann was a Tacoma, Washington resident. An attorney, he was a Pierce County Superior Court judge from 1926 to 1948.
