A wonderful escape!
"This home was a wonderful escape for our family during spring break. We visited the Seattle/Tacoma area to tour local colleges as well as visit the various zoos, aquariums and museums. It provided us a quiet, calm and relaxing place to start and end our busy days. The owner lives nearby and was so welcoming and helpful. She understood and accommodated when we asked for a later checkout time. As other reviewers have said, there are a lot of stairs, so be aware of this when you pack! They are well lit at night and have slip resistant steps, so even during the infamous rain they felt safe."

"My husband and I needed to be in the Tacoma area for work and could not have chosen a lovelier place to spend the month of June. The owners, Laura and Marty, are gracious and quite fun! I enjoy cooking and was never in need of anything while preparing a meal- the kitchen is stocked with pots, pans, utensils, etc. When I did not want to cook, it was easy to choose a restaurant from the many within walking distance. Walk a block to Fireman’s Park or just a bit further to Dock Street to enjoy not only water views, but also a picturesque view of Mt. Rainier. The bed is big and comfortable- a comfortable bed is important! Though a car is not necessary, Seattle, Mt. Rainier, Gig Harbor, and many wineries and breweries are easy to access with one. We live over 2,000 miles way and look forward to our next visit!"

"My fishing buddy (from Denver) and I spent 6 days in this cabin for our annual fishing trip. Last year was a week on the North Platte in Wyoming. While this did not equal the quality and quantity of fish caught in Wyoming, it excelled in cabin comfort and area excellence. The town is conveniently located, adequate eating establishments, interesting locations (Northwest Wildlife Center and Rainier NP), and numerous fishing lakes in the vicinity in addition to Tanwax. Our fishing effort did allow us to catch (and release) at least one of each species in Tanwax. Most of the bass were small and the trout were quite deep as the water was much warmer that I expected. I did manage to land an 11 inch trout on a large spinner lure while fishing for bass. The only fish that were not released were about 10 crappie which were our dinner guest one night. These were caught off the dock just after sunset.
An additional treat was observing the 2-3 eagles who apparently share a tree near the cabin. Their antics provided much entertainment while fishing or enjoying breakfast on the deck."
