    Mt. Rainier Cabins at Three Bears Lodge guest reviews

    What an awesome place! The Dancing Bear Lodge and Mount Rainier! Coming all the way from Toledo, OH, we so appreciated the mountains, wildlife, and awe-inspiring views!! It was so nice to have a great place to come back to after a day filled with hiking. Our teams loved the pool table, movies, hot tub, and fire pit. The moms loved the "stocked" kitchen and laundry room. The dads loved the fire pit and grills. You thought of everything!

    My husband of 18 years surprised me with a two night stay here. It was the most wonderful experience of my life. This cabin will forever be known as my 'cabin of happiness.'

    Thank you - we fell in love all over again. Melissa & Brandon

    We have tried 5 different cabins near Mt. Rainier over the last few years and this one is the best for our family by far! Our girls loved playing house in the closet downstairs. We went snowshoeing at Paradise and saw Mt. Rainier in the sunshine - a perfect view! We look forward to coming back again & again! Loren, Keith, Ava, and Emma

    I love it! The animals in the toy bin were so much fun! Me and my sister spent the whole morning playing with them. It's the awesomeist place ever!! Ava, age 7 and Emma, age 5

    Gorgeous cabin! We enjoyed a wonderful anniversary weekend here and it turned out to be the perfect place for my boyfriend to propose! Thank you for the wonderful vacation! Sarah & Greg

    Wow, what a great spot - so hidden away and relaxing with absolutely everything you could need to make your stay easy! Had such a great stay, loved every minute of it - only wish we could stay longer. So glad to roads were open and we could make it up to Paradise to go snowshoeing - breathtaking!

    Really hope we can return one day soon. Thank you for all your thought that has gone into making this place so special. Pippa, Mike, and Tara

    This place is very quiet & cozy... wish we could have spent more time! Everything was well kept and you can tell much thought was put into all the small details. Thank you so much! Hope we'll be able to come back soon. Sha Sha & Vic

    I could not have picked a more beautiful place to spend our 20-year wedding anniversary! We loved everything about the Three Bears Lodge! The hot tub surrounded by the beautiful forest, your very comfortable beds, you left no stone uncovered to make our stay perfect! Thanks again! Doug and Roberta of Buckley, WA

    We recently rented the Three Bears Lodge for a family celebration, and we were more than pleasantly surprised with the quality of our experience! The cabin itself was so well appointed and clean, the six of us were simply amazed! We walked in and instantly felt like we were "home." We enjoyed the hot tub, BBQ'd steaks, had a camp fire, and enjoyed the waffles my son-in-law cooked for breakfast! The dog run ended up actually being more like a "dog park" and even the dogs enjoyed the celebration! We have already booked our second trip for November. These guys really know what they are doing and have thought of absolutely everything. You will not be disappointed!!! Denise H.

    The amenities at Three Bears Lodge are "awesome" (the description by one of our grandchildren). The facilities were spotless when we arrived and the furnishings and facilities were beyond what we had been led to expect. We were there to celebrate our 50th anniversary with our extended family and everyone had their own first choice in bedrooms. The availability of 2 washers (soap provided) and 2 dryers was especially appreciated since families had been traveling for days before and would be vacationing for a week or more after. Leaving with only clean clothes made the rest of our travels more pleasant. The location near Mt. Rainier National Park (MRNP) was the reason we booked Three Bears Lodge and we were not disappointed. Its location on a quite side road was restful and yet we had access to all of the activities of MRNP that kept us busy for 4 days. Our only regret is that Three Bears Lodge is about 2500 miles from where we live and it is unlikely that we will have the pleasure of staying there again. If we were closer, we would return in a heart beat. Kenneth O.

    We absolutely LOVED the Three Bears Lodge! We stayed there primarily because of the reviews online and am so pleased with our stay. They exceeded our expectations in all the areas but the one thing that stood out was that the house was fully stocked as if a family lived there. Band aids, neosporin, peroxide... the kitchen has EVERYTHING so don't think you need to bring a thing except for food. We were at the Little Bears Cabin and were only about 6-8 minutes from the Mt. Rainier gate at most. The staff responded to questions about the cabin within 12 hours (I emailed 3 times and it was like that every time!) and that won me over as well! This was the best! Virginia C.

    Wow! Our expectations were exceeded with all of the comforts of home. Everything was perfect- the beds were comfy, the kitchen lacked nothing, and the Jacuzzi bathtub was spectacular. We saw 2 deer this morning and it made the trip complete. The scenery and the peace and quiet were just what we needed. There’s no place in Texas like this and we already can’t wait to come back! Amy and Aaron of Irving, TX & Herb of Renton, WA

    We enjoyed being here with the cozy fireplace and clean sparkling hot tub. We really liked the upstairs bedroom and I loved the kitchen. We didn’t watch TV or movies. We just enjoyed being here. Thanks for everything.Joel and Rosemari of Hood River, OR

    This is one of the best vacation spots we’ve ever stayed! Little Bears Cabin is beautiful and so well appointed. I’m sure we’ll be back again- 2 nights are too few! Thanks for everything. Jill, Kevin, Julie- Bellevue WA, Allison- New Hartford, CT, Hugh and Martie- Eugene, OR

    Well guys, I have to hand it to you, this cabin was absolutely fantastic! It was really cool to be able to drive two seconds and already be at the Park, kudos on having a cabin so close!Sarah of Seattle, WA

    We found your cabin comfortable, clean, organized and more than we could hope for! The hot tub was a welcome treat after Saturday’s full day of hiking. Thanks again for letting us stay in your beautiful home. Ebrahim of New York, NY

    We enjoyed every minute of your delightful Mountain home. Thank you for thinking of everything. Our family was able to relax and enjoy our time together. Mount Rainier was spectacular and we did some great hiking. Next time we’ll plan to stay longer! The Pedroza Family of Portage, MI

    What a charming place! You really have something special here. We came up for my husband’s birthday, just for one night. I look forward to bringing my children here and staying longer! Everything was perfect! Angie & Jeff of Seattle, WA

    We had a wonderful Labor Day stay here, with long hikes and horseback riding by day, and delicious meals cooked on the grill by evening. We enjoyed making s’mores out back under starlight and a warm fire. The sleeping accommodations were great. There’s nothing like the feel of a rustic lodge to sweeten the atmosphere. DVD’s, books and TV provided entertainment at times, but it was more the forest ambiance that made the stay unforgettable. Thanks so much. We’ll definitely be telling our friends about this perfect getaway spot! Nikki, Elaine, Joe, Phil, Paul, Steve, and Don of CA, MA, & WA

    Don’t know about Goldilocks, but we find the Three Bears Lodge “Just Right!” This place is a class act. Clean and with a very nice décor, great kitchen with top tools and appliances- ditto the bath and laundry. The place even smells good! Three cheers for the Three Bears! The Hoffmans of Austin, TX and Seattle, WA

    We celebrated our 12th anniversary and even though we have been to Maui, Lincoln City, and other nice retreats, we have never had such a peaceful, relaxing anniversary! The Clarks of Graham, WA

    Thank you so much for sharing your special place with us. It rained most of the time, but we didn’t mind staying in. My husband especially enjoyed the Xbox and I enjoyed long hours reading in the loft. We enjoyed two fantastic meals on the grill and ate them by candlelight. Thanks again for such a romantic experience. Lisa and Justin of Eureka, CA

    We booked our reservation online - so you never know. But your home is awesome! You have thought of everything. The only thing wrong with your place is that it’s not closer to Kansas City! We are already planning a trip back! Gene & Shirley of Platte City, MO

    Lovely, decadent, relaxing, rejuvenating! Three Bears Lodge is a find. What a great spot for 8 harried mothers to escape to. Our cups are filled and off we go renewed. Eight Mothers from Vashon Island, WA

    Three Bears Lodge is absolutely perfect! It’s like staying at a good friends house while they are out of town. We brought supplies that we didn’t need because it’s so well stocked! We live in the city and truly love our urban life, but coming here has been a wonderful break from the sounds of traffic, trains and sirens. I have no doubt that we’ll be back! Maschel & Ben

    It’s so nice and cozy here! We especially love all the super cute bear pictures and pillows and stuff! Hopefully we’ll be back again! The Ohira Family of Honolulu, HI

    Little Bears is the best cabin we have ever seen. It felt just like home. We came here and forgot about everything, work, school, and especially homework. It was great! Thanks again. The Laney Family of Gig Harbor, WA
