MT. RAINIER IN YOUR LIVING ROOM

Packwood Lodge Rental Photos and Description

Lodge, 3 + Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Find The RAINIER VIEW LODGE nestled amongst the trees in Packwood, WA. Historic Packwood is situated between Mt. Rainier, Mt. Saint Helens, Mt. Adams, surrounded by the Gifford Pinchot National Forest, and at the very center of Washington's White Pass Scenic Byway (Hwy 12), 'Playground of Volcano Country.' It is 7 miles from the southern entrance to Mt. Rainier National Park and 17 miles from White Pass Ski Area.

RAINIER VIEW LODGE has 2,184 sq. ft. of luxury (built in 2009) w/custom, live-edge finish and decor: 'book-matched' cabinetry w/cedar and 'spalted' maple highlights, hardwood & tile floors, granite counters, feature lighting and a custom-made, 9 ft., live-edge table w/matching benches and 2 - 8 foot leather couches, which promise comfort and ease as you absorb the view of Mt. Rainier from the massive cathedral windows, or drift into dreamland quickly on comfy mattresses with plump pillows and cozy down comforters.

Immediately outside are decks front and back, for enjoying fresh alpine air. Behind the house is a wonderfully wooded area and Hall Creek tempting a visit, along with neighborhood elk.

Guestbook comments from the owner
HI there,

Just wanted to say a BIG THANKS for a wonderful weekend with our entire family!! The place was in tip-top condition and more than we were expecting. The place was perfect for us with sleeping, eating (love the BIG table), relaxing...the view and weather couldn't have been better!!

We went on day hikes in the area, found our church services in Morton for Sunday (we are Mormon) and appreciated your generous hospitality to open such a lovely home for us to enjoy together.

We loved the campfires at night and visiting around them. It was nice to have all 6 of our children gathered around the campfire and enjoy conversations and look into all their faces...truly a beautiful sight!!

Anyway, I don't know if you get to hear from your renters, but we absolutely LOVED our time there and say THANKS for having us!!

Fred, as a teacher, is a life time learner. His passion is reading and sports. Marilly has a passion for family, birds, photography and traveling, visiting Nicaragua, The Netherlands, Germany & Italy. We both visited Hawaii, Alaska, Mexico, Switzerland, Vancouver Island & Victoria BC, and Fred managed a sailing trip to Aruba with our oldest son.

To keep the international flavor in our home, we hosted exchange students including: two German, two Japanese, two Koreans, and one Colombian.

Besides our four vacation rentals, we own 2 Subway stores (in Portland, OR).

Marilly Morton purchased this lodge in 2008

We love the mountains, and Packwood is very like Switzerland, only the mountains are smaller and farther apart. It is in the center of Gifford Pinchot Nat'l Forest, 7 miles from the southern entrance to Mt. Rainier Nat'l Park, and surround by Tatoosh, William O Douglass, and Goat Rocks Wilderness areas. There is a constant flow of wildlife including: elk, coyotes, raccoon, fox, black bear, bald eagles, beaver and more, and year round recreational activities.

I enjoy being outside in the hot tub under a star studded sky with wood smoke on the wind from the fire pit while elk pass by, what a combination! Throwing snowballs from the hot tub in the midst of winter makes for a great memory and photo shoot. Indoors offers every comfort from home and even more with a far infrared sauna to soothe tired muscles. I never tire of watching the many faces of Mt. Rainier or the elk and birds at the Lodge. It's a great place for dreaming!

Fabulous House

  • 5 of 5
This house is so comfortable, so clean, so well cared for, and the view of Rainier cannot be beat. The kitchen is just outstanding with its HUGE wooden table (room for everyone) and has everything you could possibly want. Gorgeous cabinetry throughout, AC if you wish it, a cute gas fireplace, superior W/D, leather furniture, and from the back deck you can hear a brook rushing through the woods past the property line. The spa is super clean and the firepit is enormous, perfect for a large family. From here we toured both Mt. Rainier and Mt. St. Helens in one day, though we did get up early. This house would offer convenient accommodations for White Pass ski area as well, if the road conditions permit. Just off the main road, but perfectly private and quiet. There's a pizza place and a market just down the road. We enjoyed our stay.

Owner's Response: Dear L, Thank you for becoming a part of our Rainier View Lodge family. I loved our interactions on the phone, and I'm glad the Lodge and its privacy (yet nearness to town) were just the ticket for your family. Hall Creek (the brook rushing through the woods) does run year round, though at times, slowly. Since your stay was the end of July, it is nice to have documentation that you can hear it from the back deck. Because I got a specific question about Hall Creek, I photographed it the week before you were there. I will have to make a greater effort to post those pictures on our Beautiful Northwest Lodging Facebook page for others to see. You said, "This house would offer convenient accommodations for White Pass ski area as well, if the road conditions permit." State Hwy 12 (White Pass Scenic Byway), is a major artery connecting the I-5 corridor to the eastern side of White Pass Ski Area (Naches, Yakima, etc.), and the state keeps it very well plowed. Because all our houses are just .1 of a mile from Hwy 12, and our road is plowed on the same rotation as downtown, it makes winter access a snap. Though carrying chains is required for White Pass during the winter, most of the time they aren't needed, AND White Pass Ski area is only 17 mi. from Packwood.
From Wikipedia "The base elevation of White Pass is at 4,500 feet (1,370 m) above sea level, with a lift-served summit at 6,500 feet (1,980 m), yielding a vertical drop of 2,000 feet (610 m). Located on the south side of the east-west highway, the slopes primarily face north."
"The mountain has six chairlifts: two high speed quads, a fixed-grip quad, a triple, and two doubles. It also includes two surface lifts: a platter lift and a magic carpet for beginning skiers. There is a terrain park that regularly features rail jams, slopestyle, and the like."
"The Nordic Center provides access to a variety of groomed, double-tracked cross-country ski trails in the Wenatchee and Gifford Pinchot National Forests. The terrain challenges all ability levels in classic cross-county, skating cross-country, and snowshoeing on 18 km (11 mi) of trails."
From Visit Rainier, "The new lodge in the basin (built during the expansion project of 2010-2011) is appropriately named High Camp and is accessible by trails from both new chairlifts. Its location makes it possible to spend the entire day at Paradise Basin; no longer necessary now to return to the base to warm up or get a bite-to-eat." So SKI WHITE PASS!!!!

Rainier in your face

  • 5 of 5
I had a wonderful stay at the Rainier View Lodge. Everything seen on the website was exact! On a clear day Mt. Rainier is right there in the living room with you. If you are on the deck you hear the waterfall, and can follow the trail to it, not far from the back door. I can't say enough about it. It is a beautiful home with all the amenities one could ask for.

Mt. Rainier in Your Living Room

  • 5 of 5
We loved the Cabin was amazing very much like a home. The rooms were great all with a view. Loved the kitchen and living room area. The view was to die for, Mt Rainier directly out all the windows was fantastic. Although we did not have time to use the sauna, hot tub or fire pit they were available. Walking distance to town great location. Marilly was wonderful to work with. We highly recommend it.

Owner's Response: Dear T., It is easy to be a gracious host, when you start with awesome guests, and you were! Thank you for becoming part of our "family". We hope you will come again and get an opportunity to use the indoor sauna (far infra-red), outdoor hot tub and fire pit. You didn't mention if you saw elk. It seldom happens that a guest DOESN'T see elk, and I hope you weren't one of them. Fortunately Rainier View Lodge and the surrounding area have other things to offer. Hope your reunion was a blast!

What A View!!!!

  • 5 of 5
Our family could not have been more pleased with our accomodations for the first stop of our Washington trip! The view from the picture window immediately puts you in the frame of mind to explore natures incredible beauty that surrounds this comfortable home!!!! We enjoyed the forests, valleys, mountains, snow, waterfalls, lakes, deer, and elk! Luckily we encountered no bear! After a day of exploring, dinner in the beautiful kitchen, sunset over Mt. Ranier, relaxing in the hot tub, a warm shower, and a good nights sleep; it made us want to do it all over again, so we did!!!! What a wonderful 3 days!!!

Owner's Response: Dear "V's sister", Thank you for your glowing comment, and peek into your days activities. There are so many things to do along the White Pass Scenic Byway. The area surrounding Rainier View Lodge is like a buffet to someone that hasn't eaten for days . . . where do you start! It looks like you managed with a perfect balance of activity and relaxation. It was our pleasure hosting you from AL.

Rainier View Lodge is 7 miles from Mt. Rainier National Park, and an easy day trip to Mt. St. Helens, surround by William O Douglas, Goat Rocks and Tatoosh Wilderness Areas, where you can disappear all day with an endless banquet of choices. White Pass Scenic Byway (Highway 12), 'Playground of Volcano Country', is a veritable smorgasbord of brown recreation signs where you can satisfy your activity appetite every season of the year with fishing, boating, wind surfing, hang-gliding, swimming, hiking, horseback riding, kayaking, mountain bikes, geocaching, birding and much, much more.

Rainier View Lodge is just .3 of a mile east of downtown Packwood, WA en route to White Pass Ski Area, just 17-18 miles away. So embark on an adventure of natural scenic delights and wildlife so abundant, you will wonder if you are driving through the heart of a wildlife preserve. Elk appear a natural extension of the downtown landscape. Packwood is considered the dream of recreational enthusiasts, and White Pass Ski Area has great family skiing (downhill & cross country), snowshoeing and snowboard programs, terrain for all ages, and all in stunningly beautiful surroundings. In 2011, White Pass expanded by adding 767 acres, including 2 additional ski lifts, 18 new ski trails, and a mid-mountain lodge.
