Plan your Summer Staycation at Totem Lodge. Located just 5 miles from the Nisqually entrance to Mt. Rainier National Park, where you'll find breathtaking views and lots of hiking trails just minutes away. From the moment you arrive at Totem Lodge you start to relax. Walking into the main living area you'll immediately notice the Rustic Charm. The open concept kitchen/dining/living areas promote the feeling of togetherness. It is family friendly yet cozy enough for two.

The space
There's room for more than one cook as meals are prepared in the fully stocked kitchen. Test out your BBQ skills on the outdoor grill, or treat yourself to take out from one of the local restaurants. After a busy day exploring in the mountains or just relaxing in the hammock underneath a canopy of trees, you will drift off to sleep in the main floor private bedroom or upstairs in the loft. The loft area has a unique feature, a 9ft. Totem Pole nicknamed Odoodum, which is a Native American word for totem pole. The loft also has its own small private balcony.

Hi, we are Terri and Ridge Horton. I’m a professional drapery maker and my husband is in the nursery business. Work-a-holics by nature, we needed a place close by to get away & revitalize ourselves. Totem Lodge is the culmination of both our creative talents. It’s a wonderful retreat we love to share with others who also appreciate a private sanctuary, 3/4 an acre of wooded space & outdoor adventures. We look forward to hosting you!
