My family of 5 adults spent one evening here before we headed into Mt. Rainier National Park. We had two rooms on the 3rd floor - one with a private bath and one without. They were clean and nicely decorated. My daughter loved reading in the sun room on the 2nd floor overlooking the lake.
Three of us arrived in time for a beautiful sunset. The setting was serene seeing the mountain over the still waters of the lake. We wished we had brought s'more fixings as we would have enjoyed using the fire ring down by the water. We took marvelous pictures of the mountain at sunset, during the nighttime, and in the morning.
The innkeeper recently took over the lodge in late June of 2012 and is just beginning to make the place her own. She demonstrated good customer service finding and sending back a dress we left behind. The continental breakfast was self serve and seating was limited. We had to be careful not to run the toaster and the microwave at the same time. The lodge is designated as a historic building so it is somewhat rustic.
The front porch was a marvelous place to sit and read or have a cup of coffee but be careful not to get locked out. We enjoyed meeting the other guests on the porch also.
