Deep Forest Cabins at Mt. Rainier
Ranked #2 of 6 Hotels in Ashford
Reviewed 14 September 2017 via mobile

We stayed at the Salal cabin. Very interesting architecture with large rooms and a nice terrace. The kitchen invites for some home cooking. Bathroom is large and has a beautiful view. Unfortunately the living room fireplace did not work. Outside you can hear the road to Mt Rainier Np.

Stayed: September 2017, travelled as a couple

Hi, we are so glad you had a nice stay and enjoyed the cabin. I am so sorry one of the gas fireplaces was not working during your stay this summer. We hope you enjoyed the other one. Both of them are working now that the weather has turned cold. There is snow now at Paradise.
The cabin is built on a cliff which is several hundred yards about the main two lane road/highway. The two lane road gets very busy in the summer, and this summer there were large trucks going up into the Park with large boulders on the trucks--one to two boulders per semi truck, to reinforce the levee on the Nisqually River to prevent flooding of the Park entrance, and essentially, the road below the cabin. These trucks were applying their jake brakes below the cabin in order to slow down, which is a very loud noise. They should be finished with that reinforcement and the road to Paradise repair in a few weeks (October 2017). However, sound travels up, so when you are outside on the deck in the summer, especially on busy sunny and warm summer weekends, you can hear (although barely see) the sound of the road below.
Best regards,
Janet

wonderful getaway deep into the forests at the base of Mt Rainier -- these cabins are well built by the owners' parents/ uncles ( architects), beautifully situated off the road, yet not isolated, with a fully equipped kitchen, outdoor jacuzzi ( perfect for after mountain hikes ), well kept/clean bath room/ bedroom -- very comfortable. especially when we have little to no WIFI access, or phone access -- we needed this time away from the fast pace of modern civilization. 2 restaurants nearby serve breakfast/lunch/dinner : Copper Creek ( american cuisine ) and Wildberry ( american simple fares with several nepalese dishes - both restaurants offer good meals -
or bring your groceries/ drinks and cook on site --
we stayed at MAplewild cabin- love the isolation and silence of the cabin -strongly recommend Deep Forest cabins (no hassle, 10 minutes outside of Mt Rainier park gates)-
we will go back to these cabins.

Room Tip: we chose Maplewild cabin - for privacy

Thank you very much, we are so glad you enjoyed the cabin and surroundings!
We have fixed the wifi signal in that cabin, sorry it was not working well. All of our cabins should have good wifi signal now. T-mobile is just activating a cell phone tower in the next few weeks, (October 2017) we'll see if that works up at the cabins. The new Verizon tower they just built did not seem to boost the phone signal at Maplewild.
Thanks again,
Best regards,
Jan

Pat and Janet were both so flexible and understanding about our arrival and departure. When you are traveling long distances, this makes the world of difference. Pat was knowledgeable and helpful about hiking and trails and offered us games. Hospitality here can't be beat. As for the cabin, I seriously wish I lived there... a beautiful and well appointed cabin, in a perfect location. Everything was easy: hot tub, parking, the grill for making breakfast and dinner. They also provided coffee grinds and a grinder, along with creamers. Additionally, top notch toiletries... we couldn't have asked for more.

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.

Room Tip: enjoyed the Barn Owl cottage. Most of the rest of the cottages are closer to the park.

We were able to spend 2 days down the road a bit...it was fine...and I gave them a great review...from there we did our hiking on Mt. Rainier and so enjoyed the splendid wildflowers! We could only get 2 nights here and choose Cedar Grove Cottage as our retreat. We are fortunate to visit this area each year. Ah....but now...we have discovered these idyllic cottages! Cedar Grove is seriously like staying in a first class spa! A huge, truly huge bathroom with jetted tub for 2, stall shower, generous towels, sumptuous bathrobes, lavender products from Whole Foods, and creative lighting! We did not want to leave once we arrived! We happily brought some food with us, did not cook but appreciated all the items provided in the shared kitchen/bedroom area. Ah...that comfy bed! Special linens! Views into the deep cedar forest from each window! The dappled sunlight on the leaves will long be in my heart! The hot tub...day or evening! The fun lighting in each area to create just the perfect mood! A super retreat for 2 ... we will leave so much more refreshed than when we arrived. Janet and Pat are to be commended for all the niceties, the privacy, this haven! So, had to give it a 5 star...but in all fairness...it is a true 10. Now that we experienced Cedar Grove, we hope to plan ahead and retreat here when we return to see the wildflowers...
