My girlfriend and I checked into Almost Paradise later in the evening after a long day of driving. The owner greeted us upon our arrival and showed us around our beautiful cabin. We chose the Rainier cabin. She explained everything about the property, the cabin, her awesome dog Dugan and a little about Mt Rainier National Park. We had a very pleasant 4 night stay in the very peaceful and quiet area secluded in the woods just a few miles from the park and not a noisy highway. The private hot tub was amazing after long days of hiking and sightseeing. The fresh coffee beans hit the spot in the morning (as did the hot tub again...). Complimentary breakfast every day was great and full of choices. We grilled most nights on the gas grill provided. We even cooked taco meat on the grill for the first time. The store in Ashford is smaller than larger grocery stores, but likely has everything you would need. If you're looking to get away and relax, this is the place to go. Other places in the area were large and on the main roads without much personal touch to speak of. When you stay at Almost Paradise it is personalized, and you feel as if you're staying as a guest in a friend's home. We truly had an amazing time here. Enough so that we got engaged on the mountain! Another neat touch were the notes and trinkets that other guests left during their stay. You'll see our story if you stay here! We will definitely be back for our anniversary or for our next trip to this area! Coming from Iowa makes for quite the trip but this place is worth it!
