We stayed a weekend in the Cedar Grove cabin and wished I had read accurate reviews. We've spent a lot of time at Mount Rainier and I love the little town of Ashford. The cabin was a disappointment for several reasons.
The cabins are close to Mount Rainier but a few things weren't so 'clear' on the website. The cabins are located right off the highway so there is nothing quiet about these - every car sounds like it's right outside the window.
We were shocked by how tiny this cabin was. The bed was in the kitchen - literally. There was no living area, no living room, no bedroom, no space to even feel cozy. The cabin itself was recently built/remodeled with beautiful pine. But the layout is crazy. A huge bathroom (with a nice jacuzzi tub) and outdoor hot tub in the midst of towering trees (BEST thing about this cabin) but no kitchen or living area. What a waste of what could have been an adorable cabin.
Perhaps it would have been fine for a reduced cost, but at $200/night I expect what I pay for. This was absolutely not worth it.
