About Lori Gard

We are retired and enjoy this cabin immensely. We would like to share it with you when we are traveling.

We love hiking in the summer and snowshoeing in the winter. This is truly a four-season getaway. It is spectacular here whether the sun shines or the rain or snow falls.

Perfect retreat

  • 5 of 5

We found this gem in Ashford to be perfect for us. My two daughters and I arrived and stayed so we could be near my relatives and the National Park. The cabin is clean the decor is great the beds are comfortable the hot tub is nice. We especially enjoyed building campfires and building the wood stove in the evening. We appreciated the chopped wood, kindling and paper which was provided for us. I can't think of anything they missed and there were even additional things that were put out for us in case we forgot. & I did enjoy the Starbucks coffee. It was so much fun that on our day of departure I called the owner and asked to stay longer. The owners were very welcoming and hospitable. we had a great time and I still remember the final day sitting in the hot tub, with the Sun filtering through the trees while sipping the Starbucks coffee. it was amazing.

This Mr. Rainier Cabin Exceeded Our Expectations

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect size cabin for four adults and two children. The owner was very easy to work with in providing directions and information on the cabin. It had everything we needed to make our visit pleasant from a hot tub, to ample fire wood, to a stocked kitchen. No, the house is not brand new but it is clean and well maintained. We’d surely stay here again and plan to in the summer.

Family Mt Rainier get-away

  • 5 of 5

This cozy cabin has everything you need...from the kitchen to it's hot tub. We had a great time! Love the quiet neighborhood and the proximity from Mt Rainier. My daughter, 9yrs old, enjoyed playing in the upstairs loft. Slight downfall, no cable. But it did not matter...we found another way to watch the football game :) We'll definitely coming back.

Cabin stay a perfect after Christmas retreat

  • 5 of 5

My family likes to take a little getaway after Christmas. It is a nice opportunity to enjoy each other's company without the rush and pressure of pre-holiday prep. My kids are young adults now, so there were four of us using the cabin...and the size was just right. It is cozy, clean, well taken care of, and convenient to Mount Rainier. We found the pictures online did a nice job of giving us a good idea what to expect...but I will say the cabin was even better when we got there. It had a nice private feel to it, there was plenty of wood for fires, everything you would need to cook in the kitchen, and even games to play. It was everything we were hoping for, and I hope to get to stay there again at some point.

Impeccable cabin at Mount Rainier

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautifully maintained cabin, really immaculately clean and very comfortable. The little kitchen was well stocked and we were able to prepare a birthday dinner the afternoon we arrived. The bathrooms look newly remodeled and are well lighted. Living room and bedrooms are very attractive and comfortable. The hot tub was ready to use, as was the outdoor fire pit. Firewood was neatly stacked and labeled for indoor and outdoor use. The location was ideal for hiking on the Paradise side of the mountain. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely try to book this cabin again. The owner was very nice to deal with and gave us good verbal and written directions for use of the cabin. She also gave us restaurant opinions, which were helpful. The listing's photos were accurate.

Great Location for Exploring Mt. Rainier

  • 5 of 5

We spent 4 nights at this very cute chalet during our recent trip to Washington. It was very close to the national park entrance, which was convenient for us. Although it is in a residential area, the cabin is very private and we enjoyed spending time in the back yard. I enjoyed my morning coffee in the swing out back.

The property was very clean and well maintained. The new bathroom was very nice. The kitchen was well-stocked with basic cooking needs. The owner had a notebook with information about the cabin which I always appreciate.

Although Ashford is quite small, we found several good places to eat very close to the cabin. We enjoyed meals at Copper Creek Inn, Alexanders, and Wildberry.

Our main focus was spending time in Mt. Rainier National Park, and although it was early in the season, we were able to hike in the Longmire area, we also drove up to Paradise, and had a great day hiking in the Ohanapecosh area, visiting the Grove of the Patriarchs and hiking the Silver Falls loop trail.

We would definitely recommend Nisqually Chalet to friends and relatives and we hope to be able to stay there again ourselves someday.
