    Perfect house for a family, essentially three bedrooms plus a pullout couch . Nice deck for eating outside in the evening and hot tub to soak in after a day of hiking.

  • Great stay


    7 friends and I stayed for some hiking to Rainer and it was amazing. Great place, so cute. The pull out on the top floor only really sleeps one tho so maybe bring a blow up mattress? We just had 3 in the king bed and it worked for us!

  • This is an okay place! Nice location, horrible home


    We stayed here for our honeymoon while visiting Mt. Rainier for 2 nights. The location is super ideal and only a few minutes to the Mt. Rainier entrance. However, the host was very unresponsive. The front door had a loose door handle when we got there. The rest of the house was super old and things were just falling apart. Some of the pots and pans were also nasty and the cooking utensils were falling apart. Also, the hot tub needs a major update and is not meant for tall people. It only has jets on the back and nothing for the feed. We could not figure out how to turn on the outside lights. Also, the 3rd floor is very dangerous to climb. The stairs were very narrow and the carpet was very slick. This was listed on Marriott and should not be as this is not to Brand standard. The owner is also trying to sell the home. I would not recommend this place for the price we paid. If you just need a place to stay, then it's okay because of it's convenience to the parks.

  • Very charming, well stocked, great location


    The beds were very comfortable, everything was clean and cozy. We loved staying at this roomy getaway. We cooked all our meals here and the kitchen had everything you could need. The hot tub was so nice after a long day of hiking. I would definitely stay here again.

  • Wonderful Mt. Rainier getaway


    Location to the park is amazing, and the house was cozy. Their are other properties on lot, and they are closer than expected, but you still have your privacy with fencing. The hot tub was great! I’d stay again.
