Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Can we rent the event venue for one night?
A: No, in order to make sure there is ample time to set up and tear down, the event venue must be rented for a three-day minimum. 
Q: Are pets allowed to stay in the Cabins?
A: Dogs are allowed in the Sherpa Lodge but are NOT allowed in Mt Rainier National Park. Therefore, your dog must stay at the cabin, in a kennel, while you enjoy the mountain. There is an additional $35 pet fee for your stay and we ask that your additional guest is well behaved while you're out exploring!  Any damages or noise complaints while at the cabin will result in additional fees added to your stay.

We recommend that you stop in at Jacobs Barbershop and pick up the needed bundles for your stay!  They are located less than a mile from the cabin.

A: Due to changes in the Venue camping will no longer be provided. Please look into additional

accommodations for your guests.

A: Max 35  

Due to limited parking in the area and services, the venue can hold up to 35 guests.  Please consider this when looking at the venue for your special day, if you choose to invite more guests you may be asked to leave the premises or will be asked to pay $150 per person, at the owner's discrepancy.  Max of 10 cars at the venue is all the room available.  The Ashford community is small and doesn't have services like Lyft or Uber in the area, please keep this in mind.  Please be respectful of Ashford and its residents and NEVER DRINK AND DRIVE.
