About this listing
You're home here.
Our home was built in 1985 on two acres in established neighborhood on the outskirts of small town. Two bedrooms, shared bath, lots of light. Big windows! Abundant space with common area, outside patio and deck with view of Rainier. Huge trees, deer, squirrels, "unorganized" gardens, swing, birds galore, bunnies and quiet - lots of quiet. Queen beds & free books! No kitchen but little frig, microwave, toaster and coffee maker available. Did we mention lots of space and quiet?

Interaction with guests
We are in and out - glad to help with travel plans, restaurant advice, or directions. Otherwise, we leave guests on their own. We are always reachable by text or cell.
Other things to note
We are within minutes of the Puyallup Fairgrounds and Good Samaritan Hospital. We are also handy to Pierce College and Pacific Lutheran University. Thun Field is close by but we rarely hear planes overhead.
We are a no-smoking property. We expect care and respect of our home and our personal property as we are sharing our space and, in some cases, history of our families with antique furniture and tiny treasures.
Quiet time between 10 pm and 9 am in consideration of our neighbors.

I grew up in Minnesota but in 1978, I moved to Washington the first time and fell in love with Mt. Rainier and the little town my daughter called "Puppylip". When Zoom and I married in 1999, our wedding invitations featured a photo of Mount Rainier and it has been a centerpiece in their lives ever since. We love sharing our view of the mountain and, judging from the speed with which our guest books are filling up, others love the view too.
Zoom is almost a native. He moved to Puyallup when he was in kindergarten and it was about that same time he decided Mount Rainier was his own personal mountain. In 1985 he had our beautiful home built - not straight with the world - but straight with the mountain.
"We're not fancy people but love to laugh, share stores and our home and our lives. We believe in family, friends, rocking chairs and hugs. Our home was built to share with friends and family and a B&B is the best way we can think of to do that."
Zoom is an accountant, second generation wood worker and avid football fan. Lenny is a fair weather gardener, novice quilter and dabbling photographer.
Great calm, good stories and a fabulous view await your arrival.
