We stayed 3 wonderful days in the Songbird fireplace room. It was just as pictured online, with all amenities one could want tucked away unobtrusively. I chose that room because of the large window exposure and the bird watching possibilities. The birds were there-drawn by the large bird feeders (extra seed in the closet.) Hot tub was very welcoming after our day hiking. Fireplace and candles provided a nice ambiance. Bed was quite comfortable and we were plenty warm. We were able to bring much of our food with us-handy since many restaurants are closed mid-week (Tuesday, Wed) or only open weekends. Dishes, can opener, dish cleaning equipment--all provided. We definitely want to go back!

Great family owned business. Luke was very helpful at check-in. He'll give you great info for the eating, hiking, drinking, grocery, etc. spots in the area. My wife and I stayed in the Big Creek cabin. Very spacious with two bedrooms, large living room area including dining and kitchen areas. The kitchen is FULLY stocked with cookware, dinnerware, flatware, spices, etc. (not food, though). The wood stove was lit with an abundant supply of seasoned wood. There was a never ending supply of towels for showering and the hot tub/spa. The creek was approx. 20 feet from the back deck of the cabin that has two sets of sliders looking out to the deck and creek. Did I mention the cabin is approx. ten minutes from the entry to Mount Rainier Park? We WILL be going back again! Do not let the price scare you, it's worth every penny you spend to stay at Jasmer's Cabins!

Room Tip: There are no tips. . .you choose the cabin or room based on your wants, desires or needs.

Have stayed before at other cabins, this time we were at the Tahoma Chalet. It was my wife's favorite of the cabins we have stayed. Cozy and comfortable (I dare you to try and sit on that couch without snuggling up to take a nap). We stayed in the loft bedroom, bed was very comfortable. Had all the amenities we needed (no phone at the cabin but hey we were here to relax not make phone calls). Built a fire out at the fire pit it was cold out side but not too cold to make smores fireside. The hot tub is only big enough for 2 or 3 (but how many people do you need to sit in the hot tub with you). If we would not have brought our grandson with us this place would have been perfect for a romantic getaway. It was a nice relaxing weekend for the 3 of us (plus family members that came up to visit) I would highly recommend staying at Jasmer's, they always make you feel right at home.

We spent 3 restful nights at the Creekside Cabin. The cabin is just a few minutes drive from the entrance to Mt Rainier National Park and provides a great base for exploring the area, or just hanging out by the fireplace, watching the creek behind the house and seeing the local deer. The cabin was spotlessly clean and includes everything you need (and a few extras too) - a firepit in the backyard near the creek, a fully stocked kitchen (plenty of utensils, spices, coffee maker etc.), DVDs, games, umbrellas, hairdryer, washer/dryer, flashlights, Internet Access and more! It was like a home away from home - the perfect holiday house.

I woke up in the morning with my back out. The mattress was cheap feeling and hard as a rock. The shower was nice and the hot tub was okay. For the price I have to say disliked. Not a rustic feel in the songbird suite.

Dear Yodogg,

If you want a rustic, soft, lumpy mattress experience, you should not look for places with 5 star ratings. Previewing / researching photos and reviews of places would help you choose the rustic experience you like.

Thank you,
Jasmer's Rainier Cabins

We had reserved 2 fireplace rooms but Luke and Tanna called, in advance, to offer us an upgrade to the Tahoma Vista Chalet(a full cabin) at no additional cost. We arrived right at the beginning of the government shutdown so Mt. Rainier National Park was closed. They also informed us that the road traversing the eastside of the park was still open so we could drive through on that end. The Tahoma Vista Chalet was absolutely wonderful and I'm sort of embarrassed to say that after staying the first night I stopped caring if Mt. Rainier National Park was open or closed. We accessed the areas that were available to be hiked and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We took photos of Mt. Rainier on a crystal clear day in the snow. Thanks again.

We stayed at the Rainier Retreat cabin for three nights. It's a beautiful cabin with it's own hot tub. We did a four day backpack in the park before arriving and it was a great place to relax and get ready for our six day climb of Mt. Rainier. It was very clean. Luke & Tanna are very friendly and helpful and have tried to think of all the little things to make the cabin comfortable. Feeding the birds, I felt like I was at home. You can't go wrong staying here.
