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 Ashford

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.

Great Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I were attending a wedding in the area and we couldn't have been happier with this cabin. The hot tub was so relaxing, nice and clean cabin overall . Requested to have an early check in and the cabin manager was prompt in responding and kind enough to allow that. I will defiantly be booking this cabin again!

Lovely well equipped home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful time, the property was very welcoming, right outside the park and had all the things we could have wanted. It was hard to leave to spend time on the mountain! The hot tub was very nice and covered with a door straight to the shower, extra towels and bathrobes provided. The couch and TV were perfect, and there was a fire built in the wood burning stove all ready to go. We cooked all our meals and found the kitchen well appointed with all the utensils, pots and pans we could want and even the couple of spices and olive oil we forgot. Thank you so much for everything, we will be back!

Immaculate and cozy

  • 5 of 5

The chalet has everything you need for a vacation and is super clean and well-stocked. The hot tub is for about 4 people. It was clean, perfect temp, and ready to go. Kitchen is tiny but has everything you need, including popcorn, tea, coffee, and cocoa! Even the bed was comfy. We will definitely come back.

Relaxing and inviting.

  • 5 of 5

As soon as you walk in, you feel instantly at home. The hot tub was amazing and the house clean and well stocked. Loved the wood stove, was nice relaxing and playing the board games provided. Very nice how the hot tub is right outside the bathroom door and it is secluded from view of road. We would definitely stay again.
