Built in 1916, this historic guest lodge sits in the shadow of Mount Rainier surrounded by mountain meadows lush with wildflowers. Paradise Inn is a National Historic Landmark, designated as one of the Great Lodges of the West.
Miles of hiking trails are just outside the front door with panoramic views of glaciers and waterfalls. The inn features a full service dining room featuring northwest cuisine serving breakfast, lunch, dinner and Sunday brunch. Tatoosh Cafe, located near an outdoor seating area, provides a quick meal, early morning espresso, beer, wine and ice cream.
Looking for lunch before hitting the trail? Order it up the night before at the front desk and pick it up in the morning. From 3;30-5:00 pm, enjoy complimentary tea on the Mezzanine level. Later in the day, you will be delighted with cocktail service by the fireside in the lobby. The inn does not offer some modern amenities such as WiFi, television or phones. Comfort and historic ambiance are their hallmark of hospitality. Don’t forget to “look up” in the lobby at more than 60 floral lampshades of various sizes suspended throughout the lobby. You can take a wildflower tour without leaving the building!
A unique gift shop featuring Mt. Rainier keepsakes is located in the main lobby, as well as at the Visitor Center, just a short walk across the parking area. You will find souvenirs, jewelry, clothing, photos and sundries.
In 2017 the Paradise Inn will be open mid-May to early October. Visitors can reserve their room online or call 360-569-2275. Visitors can find year-round lodging and dining in Mount Rainier National Park at the National Park Inn.
