We booked the 3 bears cabin, which is one of the child friendly cabins they offer. The place is big enough for 6 people and is perfect for a family outing. Our visit was late December, we had a lot of snow, but most of it melted fast, so if you want to hike in not melting snow, the trails...

My wife and I stayed for two nights a year prior and rented one of the luxury cabins. We enjoyed our stay but found it weird that no one was available. Since we enjoyed our stay prior we decided to book two nights at one of the luxury cabins again this year. We were only able to get one night...

The hotel itself is tucked away in a quiet place off one of the main roads out of Mt. Rainier National Park. The cabin we had was spacious and could have accommodated another two people easily. The room was clean and came with a full kitchen. The problem we had is that there was no way to communicate with anyone...

Wellspring is a gem in Mount Rainier. We stayed in Turiya with the Zen Garden. The room was perfect size and nice. I do agree to some other reviewer's that the bed needs an update. The Zen garden was truly relaxing. If you are looking for a place to unwind this is a perfect room. The hot tub is free...

We have stayed at a number of other properties in Ashford over the years, and both lodges in the park, and thought we would try this for a change. If I were to rate our stay as it was, it would have been rated lower, but the place seems cute so I am going with 3 stars, as I think...

This was a quite remote cabin “motel.” I had two cell phones on two different carriers. I couldn’t get cell phone reception on either phone. Print the directions to the Wellsping. I was using Google Maps on my iPhone to find Wellspring and when I lost my cell phone reception, I lost my directions to Wellspring. Thankfully, I was able...

We stayed 2 nights at Wellspring in the Tree house. It's just wonderful. It doesn't have a lot of space but it's wonderfully cosy and warm. Who needs DVD's (as there is no TV reception) if you can look at the trees and stars. The hammock at ground level is great for lounging for two after a day walking at...

Quiet setting 1/2 mile off of the road in a new A frame cabin, Tieton, with tasteful decor. Close to Mt Rainier entrance. Perfect place to stay the week or weekend. Not a B&B, so eat out or cook, but overall one of the most pleasant places to stay.

My husband and I thought it would be an adventure when we made reservations for the tree house. The tree house was solid and had power. So we were able to use lights and charge our phones. The feather bed was very comfy. The evening was perfect sleeping weather with the window open :) Please beware that the (private) bathroom...

My husband and I stayed at Wellspring for one night while traveling to Seattle. We explored Mount Rainier National Park and decided to stay at Wellspring for the night. We are so glad we did! When we pulled up there was a huge sign for Wellspring so we definitely couldn't miss it! Once we arrived, we immediately fell in love...

Oh Carley ! we are so very proud of the fabulous coffee that we serve ! It is Cafe Mon out of Eugene, Oregon. It is totally organic, and fair trade and shade grown and a cooperative, and the decaf is every swiss water processed !! I do hope you will return and try again..I 'm sure something went wrong...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Wellspring is a spa and retreat center nestled in a quiet forest three miles outside the southwest entrance of Mt Rainier National Park. Comprised of rustic log cabins, two independent spa facilities, a modest lodge and a variety of outdoor gathering facilities including a 30' gazebo, Wellspring is an ideal retreat for couples, family reunions or commercial group retreats as large as 30. Our forest sanctuary is an incredibly unique and magical setting for a Pacific Northwest wedding. Wellspring hosts fifteen to twenty weddings every year, mostly in the summer. ... more   less
