Regina Madiera-Gorden Professional Headshot of Regina Madiera-Gorden January 22, 2016

Located just down the way from the entrance to Mt. Rainier National Park and tucked away in Alpine Meadows is an inviting 672-square-foot cabin! Built in the 1970s, this simple A-frame cabin is the perfect place to get away to. Close to the Nisqually River and just a quick drive to the entrance of Mt. Rainier National Park, this peaceful cabin is listed for $59,950.

Recently owned by the Ecklund family, this cabin was home to many great memories. Campfire dinners, stories told in the sleeping bunk, hiking, fishing, and playing games and cards were all part of the fun! This outdoor playground boasts many of Washington’s beautiful riches, including all that Mt. Rainier has to offer.

It’s easy to head out and grab dinner somewhere, too—there are some wonderful down-home restaurants and shops nearby. With a population of 217 (as of the 2010 census), the small town of Ashford features numerous shops and accommodations for visitors. For the best pies and family dining, try Copper Creek restaurant, Wildberry, or for American cuisine; Basecamp Bar and Grill. Besides all things outdoors and good meals, you'll find spas, shops, and other points of interest there, too! Recycled Spirits of Iron, Sculpture or Ashford Creek Pottery can add an interesting expression of local art. Mineral Lake is also close by as well, offering more restaurants and shops.

People love living in this area! Here’s what a few folks have to say:

"If I lived in Washington I would ensure that I lived as near to the entrance as possible, and spend the rest of my life venturing into the unlimited outdoor experience of Rainier!!"

"I spend much of my time thinking about all of my experiences in Mount Rainier National Park, one of the most beautiful and imposing, yet approachable geological wonders this country has to offer. From the seemingly prehistoric forests at her feet, to the massive glaciers gracing her flanks, and the rock buttresses and steep faces and double summit that distinguish her massive presence, this often elusive mountain is stunningly beautiful, humbling, an experience more than a destination. I love this place, and I will always love this place.” - Stephen C.
