Washington State Airbnb Wedding Venue Guide

These days, so many people are turning to elopements to celebrate their individuality and sense of adventure. As a wedding photographer, I love it! There are so many Airbnb wedding venues in Washington state that would make for incredible destinations for your elopement, so I’ve put together 5 of my favorites for you to discover.



Top 5 Airbnb Wedding Venues in Washington State

Now, when I was choosing this list, I focused on proximity to Washington’s jaw-dropping natural beauty, and I chose a range of Airbnb wedding venues from the top locations. I also wanted to bring you some of the most unique experiences, so these top 5 Airbnb wedding venues all have something special that sets them apart from others.

Gorgeous A-frame by Creek Waterfalls

Rating: 5.0
Sleeps: 4
Bedrooms: 1
Bathrooms: 1
Location: Gold Bar, Cascades



This A-frame cabin was redesigned and styled by a photographer, and an eye for beauty shows in every detail! I love the interior of this place – all of the elements are so thoughtful. The way the kitchen looks might not be the most important thing in Airbnb wedding venues, but the atmosphere has so much power over our state of mind, so I truly believe that being somewhere beautiful is the perfect way to celebrate your love.

You can enjoy the creek that flows right through the property from the comfort of the wood-fired hot tub or the beautiful mini-greenhouse that allows for outdoor dining, even in the rain. This Airbnb is on the Skykomish River, with ready access to incredible trails and sights. I think it would make the most romantic elopement venue!



Spacious, Bright Cabin near Mt. Rainier

Rating: 4.94
Sleeps: 7
Bedrooms: 3
Bathrooms: 2
Location: Packwood, Mt Rainier



This is a glorious space that could easily become the perfect base for you and your elopement crew. With three bedrooms and two bathrooms, this is one of those Airbnb wedding venues that could accommodate you and a few cherished friends or family members if you are planning to invite them, or it would simply be a luxuriously private place for you two to celebrate being married. I love the tall windows that let light pour in through the trees, but the outdoor hot tub under strings of glowing lights is really the romantic heart of the cabin

In the small town of Packwood, you have ready access to gas, groceries, and amenities, but you’re still going to feel so peaceful and secluded. You’re just four miles away from Mt Rainier Stevens Canyon Entrance, which leads you to so many potential elopement ceremony sites. For an idea of what an elopement at Airbnb wedding venues in Mt Rainier could look like (hint: gorgeous!) have a look at this stunning Mt Rainier elopement I was lucky enough to shoot.

Lake Crescent House on the Water

Rating: 4.88
Sleeps: 10
Bedrooms: 5
Bathrooms: 2
Location: Lake Crescent, Olympic National Park

When I’m looking for Airbnb wedding venues to recommend to couples looking to elope, I try to keep my eye out for unique features – the kind of things that are going to create special experiences and priceless memories. For this Airbnb, it’s the lake views and the proximity to the water that really elevate the house. It’s perched right on Lake Crescent, with private decks that extend out onto the water. Imagine sipping your coffee out here on your wedding day, soaking in the beauty of the towering mountains. 

Most of the Airbnb wedding venues on this list are on the smaller side, calculated for intimacy – after all, that’s kind of the point of eloping! – but this one actually sleeps 10. It’s big enough for you to bring a small wedding party with you if that’s what you’re planning. Keep in mind, a trade-off for its stunning location is that it doesn’t have Wifi.

Cabin under a Hill in the North Cascades

Rating: 4.94
Sleeps: 4
Bedrooms: 2
Bathrooms: 1
Location: Winthrop



This totally unique cabin is built into a grassy hill, 600 feet above the valley floor. The huge windows give the most amazing views out over the valley into the North Cascades! In the spring, the hillside above and around the house is blanketed with colorful wildflowers – nature’s very own wedding decorations. 

As far as location goes, this is one of the Airbnb wedding venues that is going to give you access to so many potentially glorious ceremony sites, bounded by National Forest land. Head out into the forest slopes for your ceremony, come back to the patio with killer views above the sloping garden to celebrate with a meal, just the two of you, and finish off your evening in the incredible wood-fired hot tub.

Cabin on Stilts in the Woods

Rating: 5.0
Sleeps: 4
Bedrooms: 1
Bathrooms: 1
Location: Glacier


Cabin on Stilts in the Woods, a top Airbnb wedding venue in Washington State


This is one of the more luxurious Airbnb wedding venues. It’s a beautiful mix of aesthetic style, quality design, and a true sense of escapism. Built on stilts in the woods literally on the border of the Mt Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest, this idyllic getaway has huge windows to really bring the outside world into the cabin with you.

I love the double-deck they’ve built here for you to enjoy – the upper level is perfect for sitting and enjoying the forest, and could make an unforgettable place for your post-ceremony celebration meal. The lower deck, reached by a spiral staircase, is home to the beautiful sunken hot tub.
