About Lori Gard

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

Lori Gard purchased this cabin in 1985

Why Lori Gard chose Mount Rainier

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.

What makes this cabin unique

Nisqually Chalet is 5 miles from Mt. Rainier - a year-round location and destination dream for world travelers and locals alike. With mountaineering year round; hiking, climbing and backpacking in summer; and showshoeing, cross country skiing and snow camping in winter; Mt. Rainier and the surrounding Ashford area offer a paradise for outdoor enthusiasts.

Lovely Pacific Northwest Getaway Location!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Nisqually Chalet. Its proximity to Mt Rainier was fantastic even for our early morning hikes! The home was quiet and had all the amenities that completed our home away from home experience. Lori was wonderful and easy to reach even though we called late with a changes of plans.

Great Place...close to Mt Ranier

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed three nights at the Nisqually Chalet; everything was perfect. Walking into the front door the first time you feel like you are at home. Cozy furniture throughout and a well equipped kitchen. And you definitely don't go wrong enjoying the outdoor setting whether it is the hot tub or the fire pit. Would highly recommend.

Nice ,well kept cottage

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was clean and had everything needed. We didn't do any cooking on our stay but in the small but well supplied kitchen we could have. The area was very quiet and close to the park entrance. My only negative comment is the mattresses could stand to be replaced. A little saggy for my taste.. Over all a nice cozy cottage and I would recommend it to friends. It worked well for 2 couples.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We have discussed that mattresses might need t be replaced and a board was put under one of the mattresses (the softer of the two). However, your suggestion has convinced us to go the extra step now. I appreciate your recommendation.

Great cabin with everything you could need!

  • 5 of 5

Property is just as described. Very clean and well maintained. So organized! Everything you could need in the kitchen including some spices and basic supplies. We loved using it as our home base to explore Mt Rainier national park. We didn't use the hot tub, but happily lit a fire in the firepit :-)
