Historical Traveler Reviews Jasmer's Fireplace Rooms Ashford
We stayed a total of three nights at Jasmers. The first night we stayed at was the Tamanos cabin. It is huge, private and wonderful. I really enjoyed the outdoor hottub. The cabin has two bathrooms and two bedrooms. The pictures on their websites and descriptions are completely accurate.
The next two night we stayed at the Tahoma Vista A frame Cabin. It was also very nice and cozy. Both places are cleaned to spotless perfection, the beds are super comfortable.
The nights are what I like best about the cabins. They are tucked away off the main road by about 2 miles. It is so quiet and peaceful. I almost felt like I was camping in the middle of the National Foreest except I had all the luxuries.
If you can afford it, stay here. It is worth every dollar you spend. You will leave rested and recharged.
Perfect location very close to Mount Rainier N.P. We stayed in a cabin which was the size of a small house. The cabin was very clean and had a large livingroom/bathroom and kitchen. Privat hot-tub outside. Very quiet surroundings. Great value for money.
Great Place - Returning for the 3rd Time
This was the 3rd time in as many years that we have stayed with Jasmer's. Located just outside of the Nisqually Entrance to Mount Rainier, it is the perferct place. Luke and Tanna are always pleasant and go out of their way to ensure that guests have everything to make a stay, vacation, get-away, etc... just great. If the weather keeps you inside there are books, games, VHS/DVD movies to while away the time. Stayed at the Laze-Daze this trip, having also been in the Hudson Bay Chalet and the Rainier Retreat. The area and the wildlife are just awesome. Deer and raccoon will come up to the feeders and eat side-by-side as the bluejays swoop in for a bite and you have a frotn row seat. All the amenities, priced right and private, you can escape the rigors of the world and just relax in the peaceful setting of the Mount Rainier area. And you can do this any time of the year, as there is 4 season access.
Jasmer's is a wonderful establisment and tops in our book.
Everyone should experience staying at Jasmer's.
We give them a "5 star rating".
Shadow Ridge is a wonderful "hide away"!
We just returned from a very relaxing three day stay at Jasmer's Shadow Ridge cabin. WOW!
The cabin is small, beautiful, immaculate, and well laid out for privacy as well as for entertaining, with all the comforts of home. The kitchen is well supplied with cooking and eating utensils and well laid out with counter space and room for two to work. (My husband was impressed with the coffee beans and grinder) If your stay is long enough to require its use, there is a small washer/dryer. The queen size bed in one room and the twin in the other are most comfortable. (yes I slept in both) It also has a small loft (attic actually) that was not open at the time, so I am not sure what is available upstairs. It has all the ammenities of home whether or not you spend your days on the trails at Mount Rainer, including TV with satellite, VCR, DVD, CD, and telephone. And, of course, the center piece wood stove. Nice!
AHHHH...but the crowning glory of this cabin is the deck. Just off the kitchen/dining room sliding glass doors is a brand new, immense deck. It is completely covered with skylights and walled in on almost two sides for privacy. It is quaint enough to accomodate two, or a small dinner party/ barbeque if you want to have friends over... (who may be staying at one or two of the other fine cabins at Jasmer's.) It includes outdoor table and chairs, lounge chairs, a picnic table on the lower deck, gas barbeque grill, and (my favorite) padded porch swing. The fire pit just off the deck is great for s'more's. AND what deck is not complete without a hot tub!! Completely private, romantic lighting...need I say more?
Then there is Jasmer's hospitality. Each cabin I have stayed in, the basic staples are supplied as well as sufficient firewood for the indoor and outdoor fireplaces. They even have wine glasses in the freezer! Whether I go by myself, my daughter, or my husband, I feel safe and know that they are available if there are any problems.
I have definitely found my favorite place to get away!!
Very Relaxing in the Songbird
We stayed for 1 night in the Songbird room. It was perfect!! I hate to ruin the surprises, but there was hot chocolate and other hot drinks provided, a microwave and fridge with drinks, the fireplace was the perfect addition, the lighting was carefully added to create a soothing ambiance, the shower had 2 showerheads, and the decor was beautiful with a simple white sheet set and luxurious down comforter to contrast the natural wood finish of the rest of the room. The bay window faced towards the street, but it was hedged by bushes so it seemed like our own courtyard, and the birdfeeders just out the window brought some wildlife to us. To cap it all off, the highlight was the small stereo system complete with gentle classical music cd's to listen to. I had forgotten how nice the Songbird room was until I wrote this, and now I want to go back. We didn't use the hot tub, but it looked very inviting. The room felt brand new and was bright and cheery. Stay as long as you can!
Our visit to Serenity
Our three-day honeymoon to a little Mtn. A-frame cabin called Serenity couldn't have been nicer. The rustic atmosphere along with all the amenities of home and the private hot tub were just perfect and far exceeded our expectations. Even the pull-down ladder to access the bedroom loft upstairs just added to the rustic charm. There was plenty of firewood, kindling, and newspaper provided to keep a fire going in the wood stove, which made it nice and cozy. There was every kind of kitchen utensil one might need; even fresh coffee beans along with a grinder and coffee maker. One morning we were even graced with the presence of deer out our front door. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and would certainly recommend where we stayed to anyone looking for a mountain retreat in which to kickback and relax for a few days.
Tamanos (by Jasmers) is the best place to stay when you are visiting Mt Rainier
and surrounding areas. Best time to visit is early August...
Creekside is a bit of paradise
We spent a week at Creekside, a beautiful 2-bedroom cabin near Mount Rainer. The weather was terrible, so the cabin had to be terrific--and it was. Recent additions are a phone and a gas fireplace that provided a cozy, romantic touch. Cabin was totally secluded even though it was very close to town. Hot tub is right outside on a secluded covered deck, and is just fabulous after a hike. Cabin comes with a full kitchen, games, puzzles, videos, books, and a washer/dryer! Better than home! Rainier is awesome and there's lots to do. Check out Painter's Art Supplies -- great prices. Excellent value and a honeymooner's (or anniversary) dream spot.
Wonderful Cabin Retreat
My husband and I recently returned from a delightful stay at "Big Creek", one of the Jasmer cabins. It was our first visit to the area, and our goal was to do lots of hiking (including an attempt of Mt. Ranier's summit). After hiking each day, we would return to our cabin for a relaxing time in the hot tub - which is quite private with a lovely babbling brook just a few yards away. There is no phone in the cabin which worried me at first... but I quickly got used to the peace and quiet. Owners Luke and Tanna were very always available to answer questions, and had great suggestions for day hikes. The cabin comes equipped with an abundance of towels, as well as all the basic kitchen equipment. There is also a raccoon who visited our porch each evening... delightful!
We had a great trip, and highly recommend Jasmer's cabins to those looking for a peaceful place of retreat.
My husband and I spent 6 nights at Creekside as our "base" from which to explore Mt. Rainer and Mt. Saint Helen's. Although it's located in an area with other cabins and trailers, the property is beautiful and the 2 bedroom cabin immaculate. Woods separate the properties and a creek flows along the back so you do have privacy to read by the creek, relax on the decks, or soak in the hot tub. The kitchen is stocked better than mine at home so don't concern yourself with pots and pans, utensils, etc. There's no TV reception, but there is an assortment of videos in the cabin; and others can easily be rented at 2 places in town, which is only a 5 to 10 minute easy drive. The bathroom is huge and contains a full-sized washer and dryer. Expect visitors at dusk - raccoons and deer. The clear night sky explodes with stars. We took day trips to Paradise, Sunrise, and Windy Ridge at Mount St. Helen's while there and several other short trips into Longmire. Children will enjoy the steam train ride in Elbe.

We got a nice site here, 57b. The temps are more bearable too this high up, its around 75 . This morning we got up and went all the way up to Paradise and did the Panorama Point trail, WAY up the mtn. Tons of wildflowers here too. We have no signal anywhere in this park. Its ...
... on the same pad on Saturday night. I
was glad they were around to help me set up, the wind was blowing at
about 25 miles per hour and my tent is big enough to catch the wind.
Even with their help it took a good 30 minutes to get my tent up. Since
my tent is pretty tough to put up, we worked it out so Mike and I
switched sites before I set up and then we moved Mike’s tent on Saturday
morning to Benita’s site. Her tent was big enough to fit ...

After our unexpected educational stop we had gotten back on track towards Bonney Lake. After about another hour of driving we finally got out of the high desert landscapes and entered greener areas full of trees and mountains not unlike Idaho. And as we got closer to Bonney Lake ...
... in another long drive unless it ended up at home. So we bagged the option of going down to the lava caves and headed out pretty quickly after breakfast. The other car drove up through Rainier and I just meandered the back roads on my wake back to Seattle. Just enjoying the two lane country road driving for as long as I could before I hot Metro Seattle traffic. I got home early enough and with enough energy to unpack the car and take a nap before dinner. So I say Good Trip!!!
... for you guys. I gasped just as much as yesterday at the mammoth splendor. Paradise is on the western side of the mountain and receives more rainfall than the eastern side. Rainier acts as a sort of "rain shadow", keeping the precipitation from moving eastward. The vegetation here is more lush, with denser vegetation near the peak.
Rainier was originally known by the Native People as Talol, or Tacoma, which means "mother of waters". It was renamed by ...
