About the property

1 bedroom, 1 bath cabin along mountain stream, sleeps 6

This cabin may appear rustic on the outside but don't let that fool you! This cabin was built in 1915, however the interior was remodeled in 2005 with beautifully finished 1 x 12 plank knotty pine floors, walls, and ceilings. Some of the existing beautifully finished cedar paneled walls still remain in the living room. This Totem cabin sleeps up to 6 persons comfortably. There is a master bedroom with custom queen log bed, 3/4 bath with over-sized shower (no tub), full size fully stocked kitchen with stainless fridge plus stainless gas range, large open floor plan, custom knotty pine breakfast bar & bar stools for seating up to 7, plus a table and seating for 3 in the kitchen nook, with a beautifully crafted stone fireplace and wood stove, plus two futons in the roomy living room with space to convert into two full size beds. Several skylights and open floor plan make this cabin light, open and airy! Semi-secluded in beautiful timber, with a tranquil stream bubbling through the front of the property, a flat parcel on almost an acre with an additional second cabin at the rear of the property. The cabin exterior comes with covered parking space, gazebo with propane BBQ, deck chairs, marshmellow roasting pit, oversized picnic table, and hiking trails through the property with two small bridges over the small streams. The Totem is located on a quiet dead end road, but this property fronts highway 706 so has easy access, and only 1/2 mile from Mt Rainier National Park. This the main Nisqually gate to Longmire and Paradise that is open 365 days a year. So roads are kept accessible year round.

If more room is needed, we have additional cabins available that can be rented with this one at a discount. We have three others: the Tahoma studio sleeps 2 and located on same parcel of land, Elk Cottage sleeps up to 7 and is the adjacent property to the south, plus the Cornerstone sleeps up to 8 and is across the road. Please see at these dot coms: steppingstonecabins or thecornerstonecabin or elkcottage for additional info. This website blocks our emails and websites. We do try to keep our calendar updated on all sites we advertise on but for most accurate info please call.

Because we do advertise on several websites, we do not offer instant booking on this website to insure our cabins are not double booked. We do offer online payments through PayPal for card payments.. Call or text to 253.226.2433 for website or email info as this website blocks that info.
