Nice cozy cabin near Mt Rainier.

  • 5 of 5

This a nice and cozy Corbin with great hosts Glenda and John. Casita is very relaxing and it has all the supplies you need. There is a good variety of movies to enjoy on a winters evening. Glenda made a delicious breakfast for us upon request and small fee. She can also do dinners. We enjoyed the hot tub after a day in the mountain, and went back energized to ski at White Pass the next day. John and Glenda thank you for your hospitality, showing us your glass shop and dining recommendations. My family including my girls enjoyed Casita and wished we could have stayed longer. We look forward to our next and longer stay to continue to explore and hike around Mt Rainier.

Cozy and welcoming

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 felt right at home at the Casita!! John and Glenda provided all that was needed and were very welcoming. The Casita was very cozy and was a great retreat after a day of hiking. Our kids especially loved picking raspberries and tomatoes from their garden.

The lap of luxury

  • 5 of 5

We had a terrific week! John and Glenda are such gracious hosts. The casita is extremely well equipped, and I don't mean just the kitchen. There were things available that we didn't even imagine finding on a mountain vacation. The beds were very comfortable and the quiet was profound. This was a truly relaxing place to unwind for a week, and I only hope we'll be able to repeat the experience again next year. The 5-star average rating for this property is well deserved!

Perfect Homeaway from Home (Casita), Nicest Hosts

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at Casita. Glenda and John are the nicest host I have ever stayed with, they were really accommodating and welcoming. They gave us tour of their property and provided all information of Mt. Rainier. The Casita is located in very quite community, away from the noise but very well connected to the nearest town and Mt. Rainier.

This little house is all equipped and very well decorated, very comfortable in every sense. The best part is the garden that John and Glenda have maintained that make you feel very relaxed and homely after you come from Mt. Rainier Hikes.

I can't say enough of Glenda and John, they both are so much friendly. They showed their entire property including some of the best paintings by John, art-work by Glenda and their beautiful garden.

We really enjoyed Mr. Rainier, your company and a wonderful stay at Casita. We will come back for sure!!

Best,

Haresh, Ash, Nim

Fantastic stay! Great location and the nicest hosts.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the Casita. The place was quiet, clean, spacious, had everything we needed and a lot more. Glenda and John are the nicest and most hospitable hosts, and that was definitely an added bonus!

This was the perfect location for our weekend visit to Rainier.

Thank you so much!

Awesome

  • 5 of 5

Very clean with a great location. More than enough space to sleep our family of four. The owners are very nice and helpful too. Short drive to Mt. Rainier. The yard is beautiful. The neighborhood is very safe with multiple elk roaming.
