My family and I loved our experience at Mountain Meadows Inn. It's located only 5 miles from the entrance to Mount Rainier and close to other great hikes (we went up to High Hut because the NP is still currently closed). They provided great info on other hiking (+maps) and on food options in the area as well. My kids loved making s'mores in our room while it was raining out and we all really enjoyed our time in the secluded hot tub. The room was immaculate and we appreciated having additional cleaning supplies to keep it tidy plus all the little extra amenities like a corkscrew/bottle opener, deck of cards, jar of granola, assortment of breakfast options, LOTS of coffee, plate of butter/peanut butter/jelly/cream cheese, and multiple room heating options. I'd highly recommend this place and look forward to staying again in the future.

Excellent place for a milestone family birthday celebration!
Fantastic stay! We had a family weekend celebration for my husband's milestone birthday. He has two adult children with spouses (and one infant grandchild) and the fact that each couple had their own private suite with bathrooms was awesome!
The Inn itself was very well appointed. It had every utensil we could possibly want, and because of birthday meal preparations, we needed a lot! The hosts had some very nice, welcoming touches...fresh flowers on the dining room table and an indoor s'mores kit on the kitchen counter (which I will most definitely take advantage of during our next visit!).
Bedrooms were large and contained multiple beds. We stayed in the Blue Pearl Room. Our bed was extremely comfortable and I'm now on the hunt to purchase those same brand of pillows! The wall between our room and the bathroom next door wasn't the most soundproof, but I suspect that is why our room had a white noise machine. Loved the touch of the flameless candle as a night light.
The kitchen, dining room and living room spaces were extremely comfortable and we felt instantly at home. We took advantage of both the fire pit (with wood provided) and the hot tub.
Seriously folks, this place is extremely comfortable and relaxing! We could not have asked for a more perfect setting for our family gathering. My husband said this was a birthday he will always remember!

30th Bday Getaway
I stayed here for a few days just to get away for my 30th, I would pick this place over any of the hotels and lodgings in the area by far! Cozy, warm, breakfast items delivered daily, plenty of coffee, and so quiet and peaceful. The owners are fantastic and so friendly and emailed back quickly. Book here if you want an amazing place to stay.❤️❤️ I will be back for sure.

Polar Express - Best Place to Stay
This was our first experience at an air bnb, and definitely set a high standard. From the cozy music waiting for us, to the grounds being available for a stroll and the nice little touches of snacks and coco in the fridge. If you are in the area this is the place to stay.

Great location, beds need updating
Pros: Location to Mt Rainier NP was great (~10 minute drive), actual room was one of the most spacious we stayed in during our trip, and it had lots of extra amenities. It was super convenient to have breakfast items re-stocked in the fridge every day (waffles, bagels, juices, yogurts, etc.). There was a TV playing DirecTV music when we checked in our room. The indoors S'mores kit was also fun to make as a dessert after dinner one night. :)
Cons: We were in the Cedar suite in the Chalet house, which has a queen and a full sized bed. The full sized bed was comfortable, but you felt like you were sinking into a hammock when laying on the queen... Clearly it's a very old and worn mattress that needs to be replaced. We were thankful there were two beds, as my husband and I "fought" over who would sleep in the "good" bed and who would sacrifice a good night's sleep on the "bad" mattress. So I hope this review leads to the Inn updating their mattress!
Also like other reviewers mentioned, it is so quiet that you do hear other guests pretty easily. We heard the guests below us for hours walking around, talking, etc. Once we turned the music from the TV back on, it blocked out their nosie. Unfortunately there are always guests who aren't aware of how much noise they make, so I know the Inn can't do much about that, other than ask guests to be courteous of others, which they already do.
The extra amenities are always a nice added bonus, but a decent bed should be top priority when at the end of a long hiking day, that's why we are staying there.
