Packwood Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 1 Bedroom downstairs, upstairs bedroom in loft, 1 Bath,

MORE THAN JUST A ROOM - IT'S AN ADVENTURE!

Wild Salmon Retreat is an authentic Packwood Cabin that is nestled alongside a secluded stretch of the Cowlitz River; enjoy the magnificent view of the Tatoosh Range, trees and abundant wildlife. We are unique offering first class accommodations, in woodland seclusion and private access to the Cowlitz River.

Our cabin, perfect for a special get away, sits (one fifth of a mile) off the privacy of the Cowlitz River and is only minutes to your favorite recreational activity. We are located just 2 miles east of Packwood and 17 miles from White Pass Ski area.

Wild Salmon Retreat is decorated with antiques and warmth, a spacious living area with skylights, and the bedrooms are attractively decorated with quilts and comforters promising you sweet dreams.

WINTER brings snow covered trees and beautifully groomed trails that you can enjoy while snowshoeing, snowmobiling, skiing, or snowboarding. Only a short distance from Packwood, White Pass is a winter oasis where you can find all these activities and more. Building snow people, coming into a warm cozy fire, curling up with a great book, or soaking in the hot tub are all part of your experience.

SPRING/SUMMER brings river rafting, kayaking, fishing, hiking, rock climbing, and just simply soaking in the glorious rays of the sun. For the adventurous types, a refreshing dip in the river is a few steps from your doorstep.

AUTUMN arrives with abundant colors as the leaves turn. Hikes along the Cowlitz River, or bicycling, are two enjoyable activities this time of year. Photographers love to capture the seasons in the valley, and autumn is a particularly delightful time.

Wild Salmon Retreat is the best Packwood cabin in Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall!

The photo was taken in May 2009 on the Cowlitz River. During a difficult time of chemotherapy and radiation, I came to the river to be heal my mind, body and spirit. The sounds of the river, and the rich abundance of wildlife allows my parasympthetic nervous system to relax. It is at Wild Salmon Retreat that I feel most alive and I hope your spirits will be rejuvenated too.

RELAXING WEEK IN BEAUTIFUL CABIN

  • 5 of 5
We had a fantastic time at this cabin. What a peaceful place! We cooked most meals at the cabin and enjoyed the fireplace. It is walking distance to a trail going down to the Cowlitz River; we enjoyed the beautiful scenery. Just a short drive up the mountain, we saw snow and a view of Mt Rainier. Our favorite feature is how quiet it was.

A GREAT TIME WAS HAD BY ALL

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time at the cabin. Clean, well-stocked and near Packwood, Mt Rainier NP and White Pass. There is a short, but only moderately difficult trail, to the scenic Cowlitz River. The hot tub was a delight and Debbie was very easy to work with. Only one suggestion: the handle that controls the shower water flow is difficult to use. I recommend a stay at this Wild Salmon Retreat..

GOOD DEAL FOR THE PRICE AND PROXIMITY TO THE PARK AND HIKES.

  • 4 of 5
Great get away for the price. I am not sure what the last review was talking about..the kitchen was amazingly stocked...great array of dishes and pots and pans as well as extra spices! I was most impressed with the amount of towels and bedding available for us to use. Our family thought the beds were comfortable. I think that most people come into a vacation cabin rental with expectations of a hotel...but shouldn't-- after all it is in the mountains and should be a bit rustic! With that said we were a little disappointed that the river wasn't visible from the cabin and you could hear road noise. The TV was perfect for our kids to watch videos and we didn't expect there to be service...again you are in the mountains! This was a great substitute for camping as we normally camp in the park...allowed us to focus on hiking and exploring the area with a nice relaxing hot tub and homey cabin to come back to in the evening. I wouldn't come here expecting solitude and wilderness. You are in the mountains in a cabin neighborhood with road noise, but it is a nice cabin and very convenient to the park and trails. We would consider coming back in the winter to hit the slopes! The owner is fantastic to work with :-)

I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND STAYING HERE!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I had a wonderful, relaxing time at the Wild Salmon Retreat! The cabin was very comfortable, and cozy. We love the warm colors of the cabin and the beautiful decor. We enjoyed watching some classic videos and spending quality family time with each other. We went hiking and mushroom picking. Every morning, with cup of coffee in hand, I walked to the river anticipating to see the elk and eagles. On the last morning, low and behold I saw three eagles fly across the river. Our cabin experience was perfect and we can't wait to return. Our friends stayed at Debbie's (owner) cabin during the summer, and they highly recommended it. I would highly recommend this cabin to future guests.

GREAT OWNER...DISAPPOINTING PROPERTY

  • 3 of 5
Positives: we loved the fire pit and appreciated the wiener and marshmallow sticks. Beyond that we were quite disappointed. We made a list of the issues (something we've never done, or needed to do with other VRBO properties). Here is the list:
-Closet door in downstairs bedroom (where we stayed) off track and frustrating to open/close
-Saran Wrap/baggies/foil not provided. Things in kitchen VERY minimal- certainly not "fully stocked" as the listing indicated. The listing did mention to bring paper plates, napkins and paper towels if wanted.
-Soap- not even a bar of soap for the shower!!!
-Very hot in cabin (outside temp 80 degrees) ceiling fan in loft minimally effective- we had to go out and buy fans as none provided
-As stated- kitchen minimally stocked- only 2 wine glasses.....
-Poor Bed- very poor, made our backs hurt and clearly needs to be replaced. Sheets and mattress pad worn out- we literally woke up several times each night to tug the bottom sheet and mattress pad back in place- it bunched up all over the place and no matter what we did it would not stay on. The entire bed situation did not lend itself to a restful, relaxing vacation!
-shower- tiny, very tiny and the knob didn't work- came off completely the 4th day we were there
-Very Dark inside! how dark everything looked was the first thing we noticed when we walked in
-TV didn't not work (no service) however under entertainment the listing says "television" -we naturally assumed we could watch T.V.
-Window screen- would not stay in place (incorrectly installed or broken?). I attempted to pull it back into place several times. The last night it fell out of the window completely. My husband went around to the trash cans the next morning and put it back on
- Listing indicated "first class accommodations" and we paid a first class price (approximately $160 a night for 2 people and a 5.5 pound dog). We were willing to pay that as we expected "first class". We got economy at best. Very disappointing.
-Owner, Debbie, nice to deal with. Before posting our review we contacted her and expressed our disappointment. She assured us she would consider our feedback before renting to others.

HAD A WONDERFUL TIME ~ THANK YOU ~

  • 5 of 5
Debbie's cabin was wonderful! Booking the cabin was so easy and Debbie was so friendly and helpful with everything from directions, ideas to advice on different places to check out while we were there. The cabin was clean, enviting and in such a conveinant location being just far enough out of town to give us escapethe city feeling, but not too far for a daily coffee fix at the Butter Butte..... GREAT coffee there by the way! We are new to Washington as of 3 months ago and are avid skiers so we went to check out White Pass to see if it is a place where we might enjoy to ski. WOW, we were excited to realize how close the cabin actually is to the slopes. White Pass and Debbie's cabin will for sure be something we are going to do this next winter. The high light of our trip was when we walked to the river and got to see several eagles, some of which were feeding! We recently got stationed here from Maine and this house and area made us feel so at home. I hope you get to see this Debbie, Rob and I just want to thank you for all of your help with planning our weekend up there! Please tell your care takers thank you for their help as well and we look forward to coming back at the end of November!
