About Kathy

I grew up hiking with my family around Mt. Rainier as a young girl and fell in love with the mountain and all it has to offer. I have been a business owner in Washington State since 1997. I have a Bachelor's of Science in Interior Architecture. I have two grown boys and four rescue puppies.

Kathy purchased this cabin in 2007

Why Kathy chose Mount Rainier

I fell in love with the area, the serenity of the woods and living close to Mt. Rainier.

What makes this cabin unique

The sound of the small brook that runs through the back of the property helps soothe away tensions and stress.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful time hanging out and relaxing. Thank you so much for sharing your cozy and comfortable cabin with our family, it is very warm and inviting. Our kids loved the loft and enjoyed the movie selection. We will be back!

Cute, clean, with a great location

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here and will probably try to book this same place when we come back in a few years.

Just a few FYI's:

Over all the cabin is nice with really cute decor.

The hot tub was great, perfect little back yard facing the woods to enjoy it in. There are neighbors on either side, but the way the back yard sits, you can't really tell- it faces the Forrest with a creek below, so there's a constant relaxing sound of water.

The bed in the single bedroom is REALLY soft, nice sheets and very soft mattress... which was too soft for me; I had to move to the bed (mattress on floor) in the loft. Just a heads up that if you're not into super soft, or have back problems, you may need to make the bed in the loft & sleep there.

The mattress on the bed in the larger of the 2 pull out couch beds wasn't in great shape- I couldn't have slept on it as I could feel the springs, but my girls slept there without complaint. We didn't use the other pull out bed, so I can't comment on it.

The bathroom is really small & shower head is low (approx 4' from bottom of tub). But the kitchen and main room have plenty of space, so we just adjusted out routines accordingly (brush teeth in kitchen, store toiletries on large table in front room).

I did find the note soliciting a tip for "housekeeping" off putting because this isn't an extra service we received. Yes the cabin was clean when we arrived (although I did have to dust the bottom of the night stand in the bedroom before I set my clothes out on it), but that is a basic expectation. No one cleaned up after us; we were given very explicit instructions on how we were to leave the cabin upon check out (towels & linens used put in bathtub, blankets used folded & left on ottoman, garbage taken out to outside trash can, all dishes washed, dried & returned to cupboards)- which we complied with. I felt the tip solicitation was too much & in poor taste, but it was a minor thing

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. I appreciate you taking the time to write it. I also value your input as it helps me make improvements and upgrades to the cabin. My goal is for every guest to enjoy their stay. I would like to explain a few things in case future guests need clarification or have questions. I try to be very honest on my website as well as in all my property listing about how the cabin is set up. The bathroom has been completely remodeled however we kept the small footprint as it would not have been cost effective to add on to the bathroom. The shower head is low, but to clarify it sits a 5’ 5” tall not 4’. When I remodeled the kitchen next year I will be able to move the shower head to height that will better suit the majority of guests. The cabin has quality furniture. However, I know that not every guest will find every item comfortable to them. Each and every time – and I cannot stress this enough - a guest checks out of the cabin the cleaning crew comes in and cleans from top to bottom just like any other hotel. They replace dirty linens with clean ones, change sheets, clean the bathroom, kitchen and all floors and surfaces, etc. So, someone definitely came behind you and cleaned. The cabin is not run on some honor cleaning system where each guests cleans for the next guests. I do ask that my guests do a few simple things before they checkout: I ask that they take out their garbage – because garbage gets stinky very fast in the heat. I also ask that guests fold and place on top of the ottoman any sheets and blankets they may have used on the sleeper sofas in the living room. This is so I can replace these items with clean, fresh linens and blankets for the next guest. Finally I ask guest to wash and dry the dishes that the used during their stay. This is because guests would sometimes leave so many dishes that it would take the cleaning staff an extra hour to clean the kitchen. I try to keep my rates low and offer discounts when I can. It was not my intention to offend you or anyone else with the note. Tips are never required! The note about tipping is just to let guests know that it is okay to tip the cleaning crew who worked hard to make sure the cabin was clean and ready for your stay. Tips are by no means expected or required. I do not charge any extra cleaning fees.. Most cabins in the area charge anywhere from $25.00 to $50.00 per stay for cleaning. This fee is on top and in addition to their rates.

Wonderful time

We had an amazing time at the cabin. It was nicely decorated and very comfortable. I loved all the added little touches especially how the plants in the yard were labeled. Thank you so much for the enjoyable getaway!

nice place to stay

  • 4 of 5

Not as secluded as we expected, but none of the neighbors were there so it was still very nice. Everything inside was cute and clean. Relaxing in the hot tub was a definite plus.

Simply Amazing......

  • 5 of 5

I have never been to this area before but thought we would give it a go. Have to tell you that the cabin is amazing there is everything you need and more. There is no cell service but we were warned about it and they have Vonage so NO PROBLEM. The place is so amazing quiet and peaceful the perfect weekend getaway. Bed was so comfy and slept like a baby. It was my girlfriends birthday and i can't thank you enough for such a wonderful getaway. Like the person before she warned of green water in the hot tub but it was crystal clear and warm. We will be back in the future and i have to believe it would really be amazing with some snow in the winter. Thank you Kathy it was AWESOME.
