General overview

This family vacation home is just 2 miles from the gates of Mt. Rainier National Park, Enjoy hiking, climbing and exploring, then relax on the huge deck or soak in the cozy hot tub after a long day away.

The space

The house is a 1 bedroom with a sleeping loft, bathroom, kitchen, dining area, huge deck, and a hot tub. Rustic and vintage decor sets the tone for a laid back escape (with WiFi). Our guests from all over the world have enjoyed how well-stocked the cabin is, with family games, DVDs and even a library of vintage VHS tapes. Wildlife is just outside your door, and you'll find lovely mountain walking trails just down the street. Or use the cabin as your base for adventuring into gorgeous Mt. Rainier National Park, just two miles away.

Guest access

Guests must be able to climb up a dirt path and then up a number of steps to the deck. Inside, the sleeping loft (and location of the TV) is up a narrow flight of stairs.

This is a rustic neighborhood of vacation cabins, camping lots and year-round residents. You are very likely to see many deer during your stay.

Getting around

A car is essential. A few restaurants in the town of Ashford offer meals, and a small grocery is fine for picking up last minute groceries. A larger store in Eatonville is suggested for stocking up on essentials. Our local managers own a resort nearby and will be the location for your key pick up and drop off.

Member description
We are planning travel to numerous destinations in Europe and Asia starting July 2020 on. Simultaneous exchanges will need to be scheduled July 2020-Sept. 2021 because most of our vacation time is already scheduled between now and then. Our homes are generally rented and not available for exchange during June/July/August unless it is a simultaneous exchange.
