About Alder Lake Lookout

Located in the foothills approximately a 30-minute drive from the Nisqually Entrance to Mount Rainier National Park is the Alder Lake Lookout. This vacation rental is situated on a wooded property, 10 acres of privacy and serenity. Guests enjoy sweeping panoramas of mountains, Alder Lake, and on a clear day can glimpse Mount Rainier from almost anywhere in the house (including the hot tub!). There’s a full kitchen, outdoor fire pit, and plenty of activities (bags, ax-throwing, tubes, and board games). 

Vaulted ceiling, and floor-to-ceiling windows open to an outdoor deck with a gas fire pit, outdoor dining, and seating areas. The main floor bedroom features two XL twin beds, which can be kept separate or converted to a king-size bed. The laundry area has a new LG washer and dryer available along with laundry supplies. 

The upstairs master suite overlooks the floor-to-ceiling view.

Upstairs there’s an en-suite bath with toiletries. The master boasts a king-size Beautyrest Black mattress with extra pillows and blankets. Phone chargers for most phones and built-in USB ports for easy charging are in each bedroom. There is also a fan provided in each bedroom.

The kitchen is fully stocked with utensils and cooking equipment.

Wine glasses, drink glasses, coffee maker and coffee pods, milk frother, and instant hot kettle, along with some vanilla syrup, cinnamon, sugar, and during the holiday seasons peppermint syrup for drinks. The pantry is stocked with various condiments, spices, and baking ingredients like flour, sugar, etc.

The daylight basement has independent zoned heating and cooling so everyone can stay comfortable.

There’s a large 4K tv with Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime Video, Google Play, and game consoles. Two Beauty Rest queen beds are located in the lower bedroom area. The daylight basement includes a bedroom, TV, and game table. The basement opens to a lower deck with additional seating, plus a 7 person hot tub, and fire pit. Firewood is provided for the wood-burning stove and fire pit. The deck has a gas fire pit, electric smoker, and gas bbq.

Guests have access to a 2-car heated garage for parking that also houses ax and knife throwing, fishing gear, lake floats (along with an air compressor), jump starter, 60 amp Tesla EV charger and soon to be kayaks and 50 amp outlet for charging.

The hosts take cleaning seriously and provide hand sanitizer in every room, antibacterial soap, sanitizer spray, antibacterial bleach, and require the whole home to be thoroughly cleaned and surfaces sanitized after each guest.
