My husband and I stayed at Wellspring after a long day at Mt. Rainier. We had a little trouble finding it, as it is down a road that looks like a dead end. To make it more difficult, AT&T apparently doesn't have service in the area, so we had to go to Ashford (past Wellspring) to figure out where we were going. When we got there, we had to drop off our luggage at our cabin (Tioga), then park the car in the parking area. The walk was short, so that really wasn't a problem. The cabin was magical! There was a hammock in the loft, a large whirlpool tube, king size bed, and fireplace. Even though there was a cabin just next door, we didn't hear a thing. In the morning, as we were headed to our car, another guest asked if we had gotten our breakfast basket. They said that they found theirs in the refrigerator in the men's washroom. There was not one there with our cabin name, and we didn't get anything on our doorstep. I honestly still don't know if we were supposed to get breakfast or not. Lack of communication is the reason that Wellspring didn't get 4 stars. The accommodations and setting were absolutely gorgeous. Go down the road to the Copper Creek Restaurant for breakfast or dinner.
