We stayed in the Mountain Home Log Cabin and it was just what we wanted for a few days at Mt Rainier National Park. Everything was perfect. The cabin was incredibly clean. All the wood surfaces were shining! Fireplace was just the thing to warm the room after a day in the park. We were there in early June and there was still 15 feet of snow up in the high altitudes!
The kitchen was well-equipped and had everything we needed to cook one dinner, prepare lunches, and breakfasts. falling asleep to the sound of rain on the roof was very soothing. Only negative I can think of is that there are no shades or blinds on the upstairs windows. And there is a skylight right above the loft bed so it feels like there's a bright spotlight on your bed in the a.m. You might want to bring an eye mask. Not sure why there aren't shades!
Felt like we were deep in the forest yet still close to the main road. The first morning we woke up opened the front door and were greeted by a deer about 10 feet away. The main entrance into the park was only about 5 min down the road. It was so nice to explore the amazing national park for the day and return back to a lovely picture perfect cabin in the evening. Didn't get a chance to try the hot tub as I'm usually skeeved out by them, but I'm sure this one was as clean as the rest of the cabin.
