Property description

Winter Specials begin in October. See our website for more information.
Welcome to Vine Maple House, a pet friendly cabin just outside the southwest entrance to Mt. Rainier National Park. We offer guests luxurious accommodations surrounded by the serenity of the beautiful pacific northwest wilderness. Vine Maple House sleeps four guests, with a king-size log bed in the bedroom, and a queen sleeper sofa in the living room. The large, jetted hot tub, just off the back deck will become your new, favorite place to relax. Our master bedroom features a mural of Mount Rainier, painted by the retired park ranger who built the house in 1992.

This cabin is a great place for couples, families, and groups of friends to stay while exploring the Cascade Mountains, Mount Rainier, and Mt. St. Helens. After a long day of hiking, come home to a long soak in a jetted hot tub under a canopy of fir, cedar, and maple trees.
Winter Special: Stay Two night, get a third night free

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: I grew up on the North side of the Mountain in Enumclaw. I have always enjoyed the outdoors, and try to instill this love of nature in my four kids, 'dragging' them on all manner of outdoor adventures from backpacking to white water rafting. I manage five vacation rental cabins in the Ashford area.. I remodeled my first cabin in 2007, opening for business in 2008. I fell in love with the Ashford area as a teen. The hiking, biking and the wildlife kept me coming back each year, until I could finally purchase a cabin of my own. Currently my teenage boys both work on the cabins as well, helping with the remodel, cleaning, and maintenance. This is a small family business, and we work very hard to make sure our guests enjoy each and every visit to the Mountain.

Why the Owner Chose Ashford:
Vine Maple House is in a great neighborhood of homes and vacation cabins. It is forested and quiet, with not more than a handful of cars traveling these roads each day. The Nisqually River is a short walk, and you can walk down to the banks and enjoy the beauty of this amazing glacially formed river valley.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The area that Vine Maple sits in is quiet and serene. Surrounded by large firs, maples, cedars and hemlocks the deer walk undisturbed in this safe place just outside the park gates. You are able to walk easily to the river and explore the raging Nisqually, and that make a stay at Vine Maple House extra special.
