Description from owner

You have found the mountain cabins you have been dreaming about!

Located less that 2 hours from SeaTac Airport and minutes from the Nisqually (SW) entrance to Mt. Rainier National Park, we offer 8 private homes that are just a scenic drive away from one of the most spectacular destinations in the entire Northwest.

Although each of our eight homes is unique, all have very similar amenities. We make every effort to exceed our guests' expectations and to ensure that everyone has a relaxing and memorable stay. Each home has a fully equipped kitchen, high-end furnishings, a gas or wood burning stove/fireplace, a landscaped yard with built-in fire pit, and a private jetted hot tub. We also provide commercial grade Belgian waffle makers, waffle mix and syrup at each cabin for a special breakfast treat.

Relax with loved ones while watching a DVD from our large movie library or bring along one of your personal favorites. In addition to TV/DVD/VHS players, most cabins include an Xbox, iPod dock, and a variety of board games for extra fun. You will sleep soundly in our extra-cozy beds with quality bed linens and down pillows and blankets.

Children are always welcome at our 7 family-friendly cabins! We try to stock the cabins with family necessities such as: cribs, highchairs, booster chairs, toys, kids' videos/DVDs, plastic dinnerware, emergency supplies kit, etc. Additionally, each home has a washer and dryer for your use.

We also offer 4 dog-friendly cabins for you to choose from! Dog-friendly cabins are supplied with washable dog bed, extra large dog crate, dog snack, water and food bowls, leash, dog tags with cabin address/phone, and more! Please contact us for complete details about our 'dog-friendly' cabins.

We can accommodate between 2-20 guests depending on the cabin. Whether you have a romantic weekend or a family reunion in mind, we have a cabin that will fit your needs.

“Starry Nights on the Creek---dog friendly cabin”

Reviewed 24 Sep 2016

We could not have been more pleased and impressed by this cabin. We loved the privacy, lovely creek running in the back, hot tub, fire pit, comfortable beds, very well stocked kitchen (including Starbucks coffee!), and the fact that it was immaculate. We appreciated all the informative email prior to our stay and the "after stay" survey. The owners certainly go above and beyond to provide an incredible place to stay. We HIGHLY recommend it!

“yay, fun!”

Reviewed 9 Feb 2015

It was a wonderful stay. We had no expectations and were blown away when we entered the building. Everyone enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere both inside and out.

“Cozy and thoughtful retreat”

Reviewed 13 Nov 2014

We went here for a surprise 40th party for my husband and he said it was the "best birthday ever"! We were so impressed with all of the ammenities and thoughtfulness surrounding this cabin. Lots for everyone to enjoy (games, hot tub, horseshoes, pool table...more!). So much to keep many people happy and entertained. Would definitely return here again someday!

“Wonderful spacious cabin”

Reviewed 6 Sep 2014

This was a cabin located approximately 10 minutes from the entrance way to Mt. Rainier National Park. It was beautifully kept, spacious, great selection of movies which we didn't even have time to use, great kitchen and wonderful stars in the sky. Has all of the comforts of home including an outdoor fire pit which we also did not use. Definitely worth going to, unless it's the week that we want to use it again :-)

“Relaxing, comfortable stay!”

Reviewed 23 Aug 2014

The cabin we stayed in near Mount Rainier was wonderful. I have stayed in a lot of cabins, and the kitchen in this cabin had all one would need to cook. Usually cabin kitchens have old items; everything here was in tip-top shape. Beds were comfortable, the setting near the creek was lovely, and all the furniture was comfortable. We loved it!

“Dancing bear lodge”

Reviewed 15 Jul 2014

Dancing bear lodge is such an awesome lodge to rent. Rented this lodge for guests to stay while our wedding was in Mineral Lake that is 20 minutes away. The lodge was very clean and lots of room for everyone. Everything youve ever hoped for is all at the dancing bear lodge. I suggest you bring lots of fans in the summer time because the lodge is very very hot.

“Great house and location”

Reviewed 29 Jun 2014

There were some problems with the oven not working and the ice maker was broken. The pots and pans were difficult to use -- heated slowly, burned food easily and were horrible to clean and scrub. The WiFi was terrific until it stopped working on the third day and then the power went out as we were trying to clean up and leave. However, with all of that said -- we had a wonderful family time. There were nine of us -- three individual families. We hiked on the mountain during the day and sat in the hot tub and around the fire pit at night while the kids ran around playing games. The house itself is wonderfully well thought out and decorated. Lots of amenities, games and activities for our use. Beds and bedding as good as in any high-end hotel. Furniture is perfect for the setting and user-friendly. The photos may imply a bit larger space and yard than it actually is but that really wasn't a problem for us. The bonus room with pool table was a great place for the teens to hang out away from the adults. We took the kids' bikes and they rode around the neighborhood a few times. Deer, squirrels and lots of birds to watch. The creek running along the back makes this location amazing. Everybody loved our four day stay here. It will always be a special family memory.

“Secluded Bliss!”

Reviewed 22 Sep 2013

We had the opportunity to stay in this cabin for a few days. The entire experience was awesome! From booking to checking out, it was seamless! This cabin is situated approximatly 3-5 miles from the entrance to Mt. Ranier National Park - very convenient to mountain activites. We had the opportunity to ride horses and hike the trails in the park. The cabin was immaculate! We will definitely return!

“Everything you want in a cabin setting”

Reviewed 12 Aug 2013

What a great setting - wish we could have stayed longer to fully enjoy the amenities! The cabin was very clean, fully stocked with the necessities, and comfortably decorated with a woodland theme. The kitchen was nicely organized with labeled cupboards and drawers. This cabin property included a hot tub, fire pit, outside seating, and a fabulous dog run. There are restaurants nearby - Copper Creek Inn was a great place to dine with wonderful food and attentive service for our large group of 10. I highly recommend this cabin and will look for its availability in the future.

“Three Bears Lodge a Delight”

Reviewed 24 Feb 2010

We thoroughly enjoyed our mid-winter stay at the cabin. The owners had thought of everything. We prepared gourmet meals in the very well appointed kitchen and everyone loved the belgium waffles. There was ample sleeping space for the 7 of us and the down pillows and blankets were a very nice touch. There were many generous extras that made our stay very comfortable. We were a little concerned about the cabin's proximity to the main road but soon realized that noise was not an issue. Its location at the entrance to the park was great. We were up at Paradise each day to enjoy hiking, snow shoeing and tubing and then home to the hot tub in no time at all. Beautiful little yard, very convenient to the park and all details attended to. The only thing that was disapointing is that we weren't able to check in to our cabin before 4 p.m. the day we arrived. Fortunately, with the park at hand, we spent our day at the Mountain. We would definitely go back again and would reccommend the property to others.
