Spent three nights here exploring Mt. Rainer and this is the place to stay. We had the Barn Owl cottage and really enjoyed it. The picture shows it over a garage; no worry, never had any noise from the garage. This cottage is close to the road and close 3-5 miles from the park. Very convenient. The cottage was very clean and comfortable, well appointed. Everything was done right by the owners. Located in a wooded area, quiet and peaceful.
Advice: Ashford has only a couple of places to eat, so with a full kitchen we stocked up before arriving. If you are coming from the Kent, Auburn area there is a Safeway in Graham. After that it is open country except for a few grocery stores. One gas station in town and it is prepaid only. We took advantage of the kitchen to have our evening meals.
Remember there is no TV, radio, limited cell service. My only suggestion is that the owners try to strengthen the WiFi service. That was limited too.
