Paradise Inn has been designated as one of the “Great Lodges of the West” from the day it opened in 1917. Paradise Inn offers 121 guest rooms, the Paradise Inn Dining Room, Tatoosh Cafe, and gift shop filled with souvenirs, apparel, memorable gifts, prints from local photographers, and pottery crafted by local artisans.
In 1919, Han Fraehnke, a German carpenter, added much of the decorative woodwork that he designed and built himself. A skilled craftsman, Han also built the lodge’s rustic piano and the 14-foot grandfather clock.
Step outside the historic Paradise Inn and be welcomed by the sight of meadows in full bloom and miles of trails that lead to outdoor adventures in all directions the way it was meant to be, free from modern life stresses and distractions. Stand in awe of Nisqually Glacier and head out to exciting activities from hiking and history to mountain climbing and fishing.
