Dont complain about being loud at 8.30am if quiet time ends at 8am. Should change your strict policy. Read the 1 star reviews and what the owner responds, pretty pathetic how he thinks he's always right. Customer is always wrong. I look forward to your un professional response.

Thank you very much for pointing out that Lone Fir is doing their job as majority of our guests greatly appreciate our quiet times. We totally get that our quite time ends at 8am and we understand that there is going to be some noise, however your kids were sliding down a hill that was less then 20 feet from other RV’s screaming at the top of their lungs. This wasn’t just Saturday, but it was Sunday and Monday as well. Many see our responses and visit Lone Fir, because they understand that if they follow the rules the customer will have an amazing experience. It’s too bad you didn’t read our reviews prior to visiting as you would have known that our quiet times are strictly enforced. However, I guess you could consider yourself lucky as we should have asked you to leave.

The Lone Fir Resort is the perfect place to unwind from backpacking. The Big Foot Burger was the most delicious burger I have ever had in my life. Such a cozy spot to rest and settle into this lovely place.

My son and I stayed at the Resort the night before our climb to the top of Mt St Helen's. The room was just what we needed - basic but affordable. The cafe was top notch and after the hike we actually stopped back by to have a celebratory dinner. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. Good communication across the board. Highly recommended...

We stayed two nights and had cabin 7. Checkin was great and they were very willing to move us from a cabin by the road that had campers right next to it to a quieter location. We came to Cougar to go hiking at Lava Canyon but only found roads to be gated. Our fault to not ask before heading out. Our cabin needed to be aired and cleaned more. With Covid and with quests the night before, we took extra precautions. We sprayed Lysol and wiped down wooden tables. See pictures of our paper towels and their towel to dry the table in the living room. The kitchen cabinets and drawers were sticky so we rewatched everything we used. Don’t mean to complain but something for the management to take note of. We only tried the Chile in the restaurant and it was delicious. We would had tried more on their menu but we brought plenty of food. Side note- don’t go to Cougar bar across the street. No one wears masks and lots of flies in the restaurant. Both servers didn’t wear masks, same with the cook and customers. I’ll review them next with photos.

I stayed in one of the small log cabins to prepare for a summit up Mt St. Helen. The restaurant food was delicious, service was excellent and the cabin was clean and very comfortable. I also highly recommend the water massage for tired and sore muscles.
