We showed up without reservations (in March) and were given the unit attached to the main house (the only unit available that would sleep my family of four). The innkeeper, whose name escapes me right now, was extremely nice, helpful and accommodating. The place was a two story unit with a bathroom (very clean, nice soft towels, hair dryer and...

We stayed in Cottage Glacier for two nights before climbing with Rainier. The kitchen was filled with cereals, coco, tea and coffee. The bedroom upstairs was comfy and stylish. Everything was just set up as a home away, a vacation house, with a lovely hostess there ready for any of your requests around the clock. And Wifi was pretty fast....

We stayed in the wildbird. We showed up without a reservation and we were lucky to find the wildbird available. We only planned to stay one night, but as soon as we saw the cabin we went and secured a second night. It was so peaceful and the scenery was beautiful. We did not use the hot tub, but there...

If you are looking for a quaint, cozy but absolutely comfortable place to stay that offers privacy and all the little "extras" you might desire, I highly recommend Jasmer;s Base Camp cabins. They are impeccably clean, the beds are comfortable, the morning views of wildlife - especially the birds - cannot be beat. Management is responsive and available, should you...

We stayed 3 nights in the "Birdnest," one of the Fireplace Rooms. The room was smaller than what we're used to for a hotel, but it was clean, and quaintly furnished with a comfortable bed, fire place heater, and the kitchenette was well stocked with everything one could need, including dishes, utensils, and even butter and jam in the mini...

First off, the Jasmer's properties are not all in a single compound - not a problem, and actually a good thing, but I didn't get that from looking at the website. The rooms are all in the same property, but the cabins are not. Check-in was uneventful, and the crew have it down to a science, right down to the...

We stayed at Jasmers in November, intending to stay for two nights. We copped the worst of the rainy weather and were looking forward to the cabin - we booked the Rainier Retreat. Let's start with the good: The hot tub, the cleanliness, and the vicinity to Mt Rainier. The equipment is ok too - although just a kitchenette, the...

Tristan, The power went out at 10:30 AM - you had a gas fireplace, candles, lantern, cooking ability (gas grill) and it's almost Winter - the fridge will say cold for hours! What could be more romantic than snuggling up, watching the fire flicker - knowing you have no cares in the world. You forgot to mention we offered you...

A great place to melt your stress away and get back in touch with nature! We only spent 4 nights and wanted more but enjoyed being away from the hustle and bustle while feeding the birds in the morning and enjoying breakfast on the deck listening to the creek flow by before venturing out to Mt. Rainier 2 days and...

You've been trailing up and down the lower reaches of Mt Rainier. You're full of fresh air and fatigue. What better than to slip into a hot tub under the trees, then pop next door for a great burger and local brew, before finally settling in for a comfortable sleep. Well that was our Jasmer's experience. Lovely garden, nicely 'zoned'...

These individual cottages offer privacy and are very well equipped. We had everything we needed to make our own meals and a great place to relax after a long hike. Debbie especially liked the outdoor hot tub and I was surprised at how close we were to the Paradise section of MT. Rainier NP. Last time we stayed at Paradise...
