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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

We stayed for one night in the Nest. We planned to go on the scenic railroad and go to check in afterwards. It is only about 10 minutes away. Next morning we went to Mount Rainier which is again about 10 minutes driving, so the location was very convenient for our travel plans. The cabin had a big full bathroom... More

I attended a friend's wedding and reception at this magical location and it was perfect. Several rustic, charming cottages, garden, gazebo are perfect to accommodate guests and host a reception. The Sanctuary is a small amphitheater in the forest accessible through a trail. Wonderful location to spend some quite time and enjoy nature.

For roughly the same price as a motel, I got to stay in my own cabin in the woods by Mount Rainier! So first of all, Wellspring is NOT for everyone. But it was PERFECT for me! If you want a unique place to stay that allows you to truly feel a part of nature, Wellspring might just be for... More

A relaxing time in the woods. We stayed there during a get-together weekend. We sat on the porch in the rocker. We lit the woodstove, and slept well on the comfortable beds. We walked around the grounds to the pond and the labyrinth, and up to the chapel-in-the woods. The lack of cell-phone connection, television and Wi-Fi was an added... More

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
