Mt. Rainier

With the Paradise entrance to Mt. Rainier National Park just a few minutes East of the cabin, to visit the beauty there is a must see. Entrance fee is $25 per car load (valid for 1 week) or $50 for an annual pass. The mountain has plenty of views that can be seen from the car, and many more viewed from short jaunts to the 93 mile long Wonderland trail that encircles the mountain itself! Longmire has a museum, small store, hiking center, rest rooms, restaurant and Inn. Paradise has a vistors center with learning center, gift shop, restaurant, and rest rooms. Plus there is an Inn remodeled in 2014. For more information also try: Mt. Rainier Visitor Association or Visit Rainier.


Located just 5 minutes West of the cabin, Ashford has a pottery shop, gift shops, an espresso stand, a few restaurants, a few stores, gas station, post office, mountaineering center, and lodging available. Start looking for the elk in the fields here! Need more local information like snow shoe rental places? Here are two good websites: Mt. Rainier Visitor Association or Visit Rainier.


Home of the famous Elbe Train Rides is a "must do." And the Scale Shack has great shakes and burgers! There are other great places to eat as well, grocery stores, gas station, along with a couple of espresso stands, and a post office. There is also Horse Back Riding available! Located just 10 minutes West of the cabin.

Alder Lake

This large reservoir is fed by the Nisqually River, which originates at the Nisqually Glacier on Mt Rainier. Alder Lake is located just 15 minutes West of the cabin. There are boat ramps and docks for mooring, fishing, water sports, swim areas, picnic and camping areas. The day areas at Rocky Point Recreation Area and Sunny Beach Point do not charge for day use, but the main entrance to Alder lake at Alder Lake Park does charge a day use fee in the summer months.
