We are excited to share our mountain home with others and help them create a great vacation!

Hot Tub On The Way To Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We took our two boys’ families up to Mt. Rainier for this past weekend at a cabin we rented just outside the park. We all had a wonderful time and it was another great bonding experience for us with the grandkids as we gave the two deluxe upstairs bedrooms to our adult children while we stayed downstairs in the “bunkroom” with the our two 6-year-old grandkids (a futon bed and two sets of bunk beds). Hot tub was awesome in the A-frame out-building...beautiful cabin with SAT TV & Blu-Ray player, deluxe kitchen with anything you might need! With Mt. Rainier park just walking distance away it could not have been more convenient for checking out all the park had to offer. Sitting on the country porch in the evening watching the kids play was good for the soul! We were very pleased!

Peaceful retreat!

  • 5 of 5

This place has everything you need to relax. Tall trees surround the property and it's a short walk to the Nisqually River. Coffee from freshly ground beans awaits you. Location is great as it's a short drive to Longmire and Paradise.

Beautiful Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We just had our wedding at Buchanan's Bunkhouse and it couldn't have been a more perfect venue choice! The cabin is absolutely gorgeous! Beautifully decorated and very spacious. We will definitely be coming back for any future family get togethers.

Also, the salt water hot tub is just fabulous! I would highly recommend this place as an event venue or just for a quiet getaway.

Great place and very close to the entrance to the park!

  • 5 of 5

We came out to Mt. Rainier to do some mountaineering training with RMI (highly recommend) in preparation for our summit attempt in July. This place was perfect for our stay! There were only 4 of us so there was plenty of room. Everything was clean and well kept. The hot tub was great after a day on the mountain! The beds were comfortable and the sheets were even better! We would highly recommend this place if you're planning a trip to Mt. Rainier. Thanks for a great stay! :)

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!
