About Sara Gingerich

My husband Matt and I have owned the cabin since April 2006. We have spent many long lazy days here during all seasons. Whether its warm summer days cooling off on the deck, or brisk fall breezes staying warm by the fire pit, or knee deep in a winter wonderland... the cabin has brought us many fond memories, and we hope it will bring you and yours good times as well.

Sara Gingerich purchased this cabin in 2004

Why Sara Gingerich chose Ashford

My husband and I love Mt Rainier. It is such a calm peaceful place with tons to do. We wanted to have a cabin close to this wonderful national park. The cabin makes you feel like your part of the great outdoors adventure!

What makes this cabin unique

The quiet, private intimate moments that can be shared here at our Mt Rainier Couples cabin is truly unique. Nothing as comforting as being around so much beauty and nature.

When i first arrived i was honestly a little dissapointed

  • 3 of 5

When I first arrived I was honestly a little disappointed, I thouvgt it was too small but it was just the right size. Perfect romantic getaway. Im not sure if there was some miscommunication the house itself is 15 feet from a road and lootking out the window was a spectacular view of another house, to the left and right only 10 to 15 meters away, more houses. But overall very decent , very cozy inside, loved inside of the cabin, and its only about 10 minutes from nisqually entrance. and i suppose by comparison of other cabins in the area which are both higher priced and even less private than this one it was overall a decent price for a comfortable stay, and the owner was also more than accommodating understanding my inconsistent schedule of active duty military, excellent customer service. Would consider a stay here in the future.

Owner's Response: The cabin is indeed in an excellent area close to the national park. The cabin is fully surrounded by trees and from the cabin windows out no other buildings in view. The cabin sits on a 1/3 acre. The cabin is located 70 feet from the road, (NOT 15) which is a private side road. The cabin is in the vacation community of Paradise Estates which is an on-grid, full water, full power area. The community also has it's own private lake, pond, and walking trail. The cabin has a warm woodland theme getting anyone in the Mountain spirit. If you are looking for a totally secluded off-grid cabin this is not the place. This cabin has all the modern comfort amenities most would want close to Mt Rainier NP.

Allergy reaction

  • 3 of 5

My lady friend had a terrible allergy reaction the whole three days we were at the cabin. You could tell that the

carpet was real old as well as the sofa that no doubt set off her allergy's. Best to avoid if you have allergy's.

Owner's Response: First time I have ever had any issues with an owner with an allergy complaint. My husband and I were just at the cabin this last weekend and the cabin was fresh, clean, and the carpet has been steam cleaned this season and in in good condition. Renters please keep in mind that our Mt Rainier Couples Cabin is in a rural location very close to the national park, and allergies from being in the great outdoors are possible. My cleaning staff is amazing and keeps our cabin in top top shape, but obviously the elements of nature could affect your allergies depending on how much outdoor time you spend and how deep into the woods you go. So explore with care.

Paradise

  • 5 of 5

The name says it all. It truly is a couples retreat in the middle of paradise.

At first the cabin seemed too small, but then you slowly realize that its just the perfect size for a couple. Tastefully decorated and furnished this cabin along with the surrounding nature will make you forget about the outside world. The memory foam king size bed and a huge window in the bedroom will make you crave to wake up to the view, comfort and sounds of nature every single day.

Use the grocery store located in Morton about 25 miles from Ashford (get the map at the visitors center in Ashford) to stock up on food and necessities. General stores in Ashford don't have much choice, and overprices because of the location. Kitchen is fully stocked as mentioned in description, however we were unable to find a cutting board and I would suggest adding a good quality knife.

We came to stay in the cabin in mid march, when the temperature outside is perfect for hiking walking or just sitting comfortably outside on the deck during the day. However with night fall it gets cold in the cabin and unfortunately the heater wasn't kicking in to sustain a room temperature. Had to wake up in the middle of the night and reset the thermostat to sleep comfortably. We ve also used a pellet stove which provided some additional heat.

Another thing to mention is to watch where you park in the drive way. During a windy night we ve had a few decent size branches fall near our rental car. Thankfully there was no damage to the car.

Overall we were very satisfied with the cabin and would love to see it the place in the summer time when everything is green. Thank you for putting in time and effort to make this place as comfortable as possible!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the wonderful feedback on our Mt. Rainier Couples Cabin! We have strived to make the cabin the perfect r&r retreat for couples with all the wonderful wonders that await being so close to Mt. Rainier National Park. The cabin in that wonderful quite location is surly an escape from all the business of the big city life. A true get-away-from-it-all place. We always encourage shopping local, and supporting the local stores and shops in Ashford. Ashford is very much dependent on seasonal guests looking to have the closeness to national park. Shopping local helps local businesses, and keeps retreat destinations thriving. The cabin being in the amazing country right in the backyard of Mt Rainier National is always a wonderful adventure, and the weather can be part of the adventure for sure. Always be prepared! We hope all our guest are as comfortable and happy with their stay as you where. Thank you.

Perfect Cabin For Two

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was perfectly situated for a weekend of exploring Mount Rainier; it was very clean, warm and comfortable. We cooked every night so the well-equipped kitchen was much appreciated. It was easy to find and communication with the owner when booking was great. We would definitely return!

Comfy and Cozy are WE

  • 4 of 5

My boyfriend and I were very pleased with this place! It look EXACTLY like the pictures. All the decorations make it very charming and had the perfect "cabin in the woods" feel! We would want to give it 5 stars but only problem was that even though it had the "feel" of a cabin in the woods.... it really wasn't. Unfortunately the fireplace was not wood burning. That wouldn't of been that much of a problem considering the electrical heating worked very well..... until the power went out. So without ANY POWER the cabin was completely useless and very cold. AND there was only one emergency light. So as long as this place had power its very cozy and cute.

Owner's Response: Very happy to hear you were pleased with our Mt Rainier Couples Cabin. Being only a few short miles from Mt Rainier National Park the roural area does have power outs from time to time. The cabin does have a pellet stove that if burning can provide heat for several hours even after a power outage. We pride ourselves in making our guests as comfortable as possible, but on occasion nature will have other plans. It is a truly a cabin in the woods with the modern needs. Thank you!
