(The Paradise Inn at Mount Rainier National Park is accepting reservations for the summer 2021 season.)
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 hallmarks 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.
