Its elegance and charm offers train enthusiast a pleasing stay. The hot water on demand, along with 2 separately controlled shower heads offers a wonderful hot shower. This caboose is especially great for a honeymooner’s suite or a special occasions celebration!

We’re now approaching summer months and there’s no place like this in all of Greenwater. Just outside cabin doors, you can stretch out on this beautiful, picturesque mini-resort setting and enjoy outdoor yard games, have a picnic while relaxing on our sandy beach or wade through ankle deep water on your way to the wonderful swimming hole. Beach chairs with cup holders and yard games included. There are major hiking trails close by that lead to views of Mt. Rainier and beyond! The pristine drinking water means no more bottled water! Our water straight from the tap is cold and tastes fabulous! We are nestled between 2 major rivers that come directly from Mt. Rainier.

Next: Families and friends can now gather in their own private getaway while sharing a state of the art Jacuzzi with lighting and built-in sound system, enclosed in a beautiful cabana. Or enjoy unwinding around a bonfire pit, firewood included! For music enthusiasts, there is a guitar with tuner and picks provided. Or, just hang out on the decks listening to the babbling sounds of Greenwater River while enjoying the landscape of the surrounding mountains and nearby 100+ year old, majestic fir trees. Cabins have fully equipped kitchens and BBQs. All you need to bring is food and beverages.

We are only a 2 minute walking distance to town and local attractions including the Naches Tavern/Restaurant welcoming children. They have darts, pool tables, horseshoes and great food. Wapati Woolies and Greenwater Outfitters is well known for their huckleberry ice cream, coffee drinks, wool ski hats as well as offering many other top quality outdoor apparel and gear. With so many outdoor activities to do from a gondola ride to the mountain top restaurant only 20 minutes away to our world class ski slopes, hiking, climbing, mountain biking, rafting and the Mt Rainier National Park entrance is only 15 minutes away. So, come stay with us and you will surely be creating ever-lasting, cherished memories!

Why Auggie and Ann chose Mount Rainier

My wife Ann and I seem to be drawn by the mountains snow capped peaks, spectacular rivers, wildlife, world class skiing, fishing as well as its many hiking & biking trails. In October of 2012 we found ourselves buying this property we named, “Two Cabins and a Caboose” and began turning it into a park-like setting that now offers local and world travelers experiences unlike any other region.

We loved everything about the caboose! Charming, efficient, cozy! Great towels, bedding, kitchen!

  • 4 of 5

Auggie and Ann have thought of almost every need you may have. The only change we would suggest is a real door to the bathroom, though not sure how that could be done!!!

Thank you for a unique experience.

Amazing little getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

I brought my 6-year-old son out here for our summer vacation this year, and I have to say, without a doubt, this was the best vacation we've ever had. The caboose is even nicer than the photos make it out to be, and the river across the street is absolutely beautiful. It's also close to everything; only an hour drive to Seattle, and about a half hour to Mt. Rainier National Park, with tons of great hiking trails within a short distance. We loved everything about our stay here, and would (and have!) recommended it anyone. Thank you for providing a memorable place to stay!

Well appointed.

Actual accommodations are a bit small, but the outdoor grill and hot tub were a huge bonus. Everything you need is there. Overall, very pleased.
