About Altimeter Cabin at Mt. Rainier:

Located on forested grounds, Altimeter Cabin and Event Venue is a location that offers abundant Pacific Northwest vibes. Guests staying in the cabin enjoy the use of a private outdoor hot tub, free parking, and wi-fi. Upon entering the historic cabin guests first notice the open floor plan, gleaming timbers, inviting hearth, and wood stove. A sofa, table, and chairs, eat-in kitchen, and restroom with claw-foot tub and shower on the main floor. There’s an open sleeping loft with two twin mattresses that looks out onto the main area of the cabin. The sleeping loft is accessed by a log ladder. The cabin features a fully equipped kitchen. All wood, stone, and tile have been meticulously varnished and sealed, the cabin feels exceptionally clean and new even though originally built in the early 1900s. Guests have access to a fire pit and picnic table. The cabin sleeps two on the queen-size bed and two in the sleeping loft. 

Adjacent to the log cabin is a beautiful outdoor covered dining area with a live edge table and a dance floor that can be reserved in addition to the cabin. This additional area is well suited to host small outdoor socially distanced weddings and elopement ceremonies. Guests can opt to rent the cabin for a quiet getaway, or rent the entire grounds.
