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.
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.
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.
We just returned from a very relaxing three day stay at Jasmer's Shadow Ridge cabin. WOW!
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 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.
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!
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.
