Where else can you enjoy Sunday brunch in a historic, heavy-timbered lodge halfway up a mountain? Tall windows provide terrific views of Rainier, and the warm glow of native wood permeates the large dining room. The lunch menu is simple and healthy—four kinds of burgers (black bean, chicken, bison, and beef), salads, and the like. For dinner, there's nothing like a hearty plate of the inn's signature bourbon buffalo meat loaf.
