About Us

Since 2005

It was Mother's Day in 2005 that took the Harwood family on their very first visit to Mount Rainier National Park. They planned a long weekend of hiking and exploration with evenings spent in the hot tub at a small vacation rental near the national park entrance. Upon arrival, they noticed a realtor across the street erecting a 'For Sale' sign in front of a very cute cabin tucked under giant cedars and firs. They asked the realtor if they could take a quick peek inside while he was staging the home for sale. As some of you may know, it can be very risky to take your wife shopping unless you are ready to buy something!

They both immediately fell in love with what would soon become Three Bears Lodge…
