The pinnacle of Rainier luxury can be found three miles from the park entrance in Stormking Cabin and Spa (360/569-2964, www.stormkingspa.com, $190–205, no kids). This cluster of four cabins all offer private hot tubs and secluded privacy that make them a favorite among honeymooners. Three of the four are uniquely constructed round cabins with sixteen-sided walls, and all of them have unique walk-in showers—one made with impressive slate stonework, two with river rock, and one two-person greenhouse shower. On site is a luxury spa offering massage, aromatherapy soaks, and time to sweat in the sauna.
