Easily accommodated 15 people! Location is Prime Time!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures do not do this place justice. We visited the Bunkhouse in February with 15 people and were slightly concerned about the size of the house and its ability to accommodate all 15 based on the photos. However, those concerns were blown away the moment we walked into the Bunkhouse. The house is much bigger than the pictures make it appear as it easily fit all 15 of us!

Also, you just can't beat this location. It is literally the closest you can possibly get to Mt. Rainier. We went up to Paradise for the day, snowshoed, and then came back and soaked in the hot tub - absolutely amazing!

Highly recommend the Bunkhouse for any trip or getaway you have planned that involves Mt. Rainier. Christy is very easy to work with and made the rental process a breeze. We loved the Bunkhouse and know you will to!

The cabin was so inviting . There was a beautiful Christmas tree and a fire going to welcome us.

  • 5 of 5

The cabin has a wonderful kitchen and a beautiful wood dining table that was perfect for meals and board games. We enjoyed the hot tub! My favorite part was being so close to the trail at the Nisqually river where we went snow shoeing and cross country skiing. Also we went up to paradise two times to ski and the truly enjoyed the winter wonderland. we hope to come again next year. It was spectacular scenery and a beautiful home.

Perfect Family Get-Away!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Once again our expectations were exceeded with Christy and the Buchanan Bunkhouse!!! The fully stocked kitchen had everything we needed for our family Thanksgiving, the HUGE table allowed us all to sit together with the toasty fireplace in the corner! Such an amazing family time was had around the fire-pit and Jacuzzi tub! We will be back!

Beautiful Cabin at the Doorway to Mt. Rainier

  • 5 of 5

Christy's cabin checked all the boxes for us for my girlfriend's birthday weekend. We were blown away by how beautiful the place was.

I'm just going to list everything we loved, and I'm sure I'll be forgetting several things we appreciated:

-Beautiful lumber construction

-Literally steps from the entrance to Mt. Rainier Nat'l Park

-Right on the river (highly recommend a walk along the trail)

-huge yard with fire and horseshoe pits, barbecue grill, yard games

-the best hot tub I've been in, could easily have fit 6-7 adults

-gorgeous wrap-around porch

-modern kitchen with everything you could need

-two big master bedrooms with master bedroom and jacuzzi tub

-another room with bunks and at least 4 pull-out couches

-enormous dining table that fits at least 12

-fireplace and electric heater to get cozy

-tv and all that modern jazz

-games and books for a rainy day

-impeccably clean

-seamless check-in and directions couldn't have been clearer

-short drive to town for groceries, beverages, etc

Honestly could not have asked for more. Thank you so much, Buchanan's. What a beautiful second home, thank you for sharing with us!

-Brian and Daniela
