Dating back to 1912, this historic lodge in Ashford, Washington is a destination location for weddings and reunions. But with large multi-bed rooms and two houses with all the amenities families want — from space to kitchens to laundry facilities — it is the ideal accommodation choice when visiting Ashford, Mt. Rainer and Mount St. Helens.
Families will be excited to stay in a lodge once frequented by Teddy Roosevelt; it features a trout feeding activity for kids and those who are kids at heart at the picturesque onsite pond. The restaurant at Alexander’s Lodge serves breakfast, lunch and dinner, meaning you and your family can relax in the tranquil setting without having to venture out for food.

We had Waterwheel, a room with our own bathroom which was across the corridor - no problem as we had come prepared with coveralls. Lovely gentle sound of the waterwheel all night. Excellent help yourself breakfast with real crockery and cutlery. Only slight downside was no decaff coffee.
Just stayed one night in one of the rooms right next to their trout pond. There was plenty of room for four adults. Room was very clean, bed was great, very friendly service. We had complimentary wine, and a very nice breakfast. We enjoyed a small hike on their property, and the Lodge was five minutes away from the entrance to the National Park. Nothing critical to say.
