My wife, son and I stayed in the Timbuktu cabin in late June on the front end of 4 days at Mount Rainier. Our cabin (tent) was rustic yet very comfortable.
The adventure begins as you follow a winding trail through old-growth forest to access the cabin. We were even greeted by a young deer right at our front door. The night was cool, but our room was (more than sufficiently) heated by a wood stove. Great memories.

Room Tip: Be sure to spend some time exploring the grounds of Wellspring. There are many "secrets" f...

My husband and I went back to Wellspring this past weekend for our 1 year anniversary. It's our favorite spot to relax and reconnect. We chose the Tahoma cabin because most others were already booked but we were not disappointed! It was gorgeous, handcrafted and as special as we remembered. The best thing to do, if you are able, is to book the Turaiya room. It's gorgeous and attached to a pond and you're allowed to use the hot tub after 9pm which makes it the best value to me.

Regardless of the cabin you choose, you're going to have a wonderful stress free time. We'll be back for years to come!!!

Very peaceful area, set out in a forest and there is only like six rooms. Wellspring also has a spa, and lots of hiking trails. But a con is that there is no phone service there

Room Tip: Don't expect a pool or a place to eat inside the hotel area, there is a spa but no pool.

What a special place to stay and oh-so-close to Mt Rainier. My husband and I normally make the drive from Seattle and back in one day, but this time we opted to stay the night. I sure am glad we did. This place is an amazing find. The grounds are beautifully landscaped in a peaceful environment. Wellspring is located off the main road far enough to feel like you are miles away. There are several cabins available as well as a tree house. We stayed in the tree house! There are hot tubs and other spa facilities. We rented the hot tub for an hour (private) and had great converstation with the owner. This would be the ultimate place to get married!

If you are headed to Mt Rainier, we highly recommend you stay here.

Room Tip: The treehouse was fun, though very small. There are larger cabins for rent, some near a creek.

We stayed in the Turyia room for one night at WellSpring. Overall it's a nice please with a relatively unique concept for this area. Pricing was on the higher side of what I think the overall experience is worth but within the general boundary of acceptable.

We arrived at the place in the evening. It was pitch black and a bit hard to navigate. No reception or soul present was not what we expected. But the call center person was helpful - and we got the key code and location to the room pretty quickly.

The room was cute and well designed for such a small space. The glass patio door and other windows looking out onto to the lovely landscaping made the room. We enjoyed the serenity of the landscaping and having our own hot tub.

I'd likely check this place out again if I was back in the area. It might be fun to try once of the larger cabins.

i've stayed at wellspring a half dozen times over the years, and let me tell you, it never fails to deliver a comfy night's sleep. never. Sunny has mastered the art of anonymous hospitality... you will probably not meet her during your stay, as she may be busy giving massages or taking care of other things, but if you do get to meet her, you'll understand what makes Wellspring so special.

great design on the cabins, and very comfy beds. i'll come back again for sure.

We recently stayed at Wellspring for one night while visiting Rainier National Park and loved it! The cabins are so cute and private. We did not partake in any of the additional amenities like a massage or the spa, but enjoyed our time. We would definitely stay here again!
