Packwood House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8-12), Hotub!

Also check out our website for more information and pictures at: http://www.moosewoodmanor.net/

Welcome to Moosewood Manor! Enjoy our family-friendly, two-story 2300 sq ft custom crafted cabin in the heart of the Pacific Northwest mountains. Located on a secluded, quiet cul-de-sac in the town of Packwood, the house backs up to the Gifford Pinchot National Forest and looks out on the Tatoosh Mountain Range.

This house has all the essentials for a true mountain retreat. The first floor has expansive vaulted ceilings and an open floor plan with gourmet kitchen, living and dining areas. The kitchen boasts custom cabinetry, a full size pantry, and all the utensils you'll need. Enjoy the beautiful forest and partial mountain views from the floor to ceiling windows in the living room and from the front deck. Relax on our large leather sofa and hand-crafted rocking chairs as you sip a glass of wine or cup of hot cocoa in front of the glowing gas fireplace with river rock surround. Watch the stars as you soak in the large hot tub or roast marshmallows on the outdoor fire pit.

Moosewood Manor sleeps up to 10 adults and 2 children. The romantic master bedroom on the second floor includes a hand-crafted king size log bed, gas fireplace and walk-in-closet. The attached master bathroom has a two person soaking tub, shower, and double sinks. Two additional bedrooms, plus a split bathroom, are found on the first floor. Bedroom one has a hand-crafted queen size log bed while bedroom two has a full size Murphy bed plus a kid-approved bunk bed. Two futons in the den in the daylight basement provide additional sleeping space. The daylight basement also features a second TV and DVD player, mudroom, and half-bath. Throughout the house, you'll find many environmentally friendly features including bamboo, cork, and wool floors and water-saving toilets.

Moosewood Manor is part of the Timberline Village recreational community, which provides access to tennis courts, playground, playing fields, a club house and two seasonal swimming pools. The southeast corner to Mt. Rainier National Park is 15 minutes away, and the White Pass Ski Area, with downhill and cross-country skiing, daycare, and ski school, is 25 minutes away. Nearby lakes include Rife, Mayfield, Takalack, Packwood, Rimrock and Chambers as well as many more where you can find fishing, boating and hiking.

Guestbook comments from the manager
We stayed at Moosewood Manor for our honeymoon and felt like we were at a full-service spa. We lolled in the hot tub under the stars and cooked feasts in the well-stocked kitchen. We also appreciated the sustainable features, like the cork flooring. Deep soaking bathtubs, fireplaces—a perfect mountain retreat!

We're the Schubert family: Tim, Arlene, daughter Alexa, and grandson Brendan. Tim and Arlene recently retired. After 18 years living in Tacoma, WA, they're exploring adventures farther afield--currently Lake Chapala, Mexico!

The Owner purchased this house in 2003

We chose this location because we loved the beauty and hiking of Mount Rainier, the skiing at White Pass, and the easy access from Tacoma and Seattle. We also liked the amenities and great community of Timberline Village, plus the small-town charm of Packwood.

We love to hike, ski, and snowshoe. Arlene also recommends the thrift stores of Packwood.

PERFECT FOR ALL AGES

  • 5 of 5
We spent Memorial Day weekend at Moosewood Manor with three families. Everything was perfect - big well-stocked kitchen and large table for group meals, beautiful hot tub with sheltered views of the forest, and a nice fire pit out back. We had easy access to the community pool, tennis courts, basketball court, and were minutes away from a variety of hikes in Rainier Natl Park. The house was clean and well-cared for and the owner was responsive and helpful. We'll be back again.

VERY PLEASED WITH OUR STAY

  • 5 of 5
Eight adult men spent five nights at the cabin. With two of us sharing the king-size bed in the gorgeous master bedroom, everyone had his own bed. There is plenty of additional floor space, but the cabin is far better at accommodating eight people than twelve. The central space -- comprising the living room, dining area, and kitchen -- are interconnected and terrific. The dining table accommodates eight people. Plus, there are stools that can be used at the kitchen island. Speaking of the kitchen, it is a nice, open space, and it doesn't require that the cook be separated from the rest of the activity. We enjoyed using the hot tub, but we did not try the community pool at which we had privileges by virtue of staying at the cabin. During the days, we were able to take some beautiful day hikes, including nearby Packwood and Glacier Lakes. The house is just a few miles from one of the entrances to Mt. Rainier, so we spent a day in the park. My only suggestion for improvement would be to provide some comfortable chairs that can be used on the deck. We didn't want to take the dining room chairs outside, and even if we had, they are not well suited to reclining and relaxing. Fortunately, sitting on the living room couch is practically like being outside because of the huge windows that look out on evergreens. Also, five of us brought laptops (of various brands) with us because there was WiFi available. For some reason, only one of us was able to connect to the Internet during our stay, and the connection was rather slow. The local caretaker willingly came to the house to check things out, but she couldn't figure out why our computers wouldn't connect. It wasn't a big deal because the less technology used, the better when you are in such beautiful surroundings, but if you are planning to connect to the Internet, you should probably plan on using your smart phone.

GREAT WINTER AND HOLIDAY GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
We rented Moosewood Manor for a friends-Thanksgiving experience/birthday party at Moosewood Manor . We arrived at the Manor on Thanksgiving day, and were so amazed at all of the amenities the house had to offer. The pictures don't do it justice - the living room is spectacular, as is the master bedroom. The other bedrooms are very nice - there is a lot of space. The house was clean and ready for our arrival.

We had absolutely every utensil necessary to prepare a fantastic Thanksgiving meal - they had thought of everything! We all enjoyed the hot tub, and the TV was much appreciated by the football fans! We played several games that were at the cabin, and we also enjoyed a hike around Packwood Lake one day - it was gorgeous.

The manager was very helpful and as we booked our reservation, and very attentive. Thank you, Moosewood Manor! We hope to come back ASAP!

FABULOUS HOUSE!

  • 5 of 5
We've been renting houses every summer for about 12 years now, and this was one of the best we've ever stayed in! The house was perfect for our group of 7 to spread out or be together. The ground floor level was perfect for the teenagers to hang out in the den and the snow room. The main floor was spacious for everyone to gather around the kitchen, tv, or out on the deck. After a day of exploring Mount Saint Helens or Mount Rainier, the hot tub was very inviting and wonderful to lay back and watch the stars. The house is located in a very nice quiet neighborhood that was perfect for walking our dogs and enjoying a nice walk out in the woods. I think the area is mostly intended for the skiing crowd, but summer was a perfect time to be there, too. There are elk right in the middle of nearby Packwood, and we even had a deer come up and watch us through the kitchen window! Moosewood Manor was centrally located so that we were able to spend a day in both Mount Saint Helens and Mount Rainier. I would definitely recommend this house and hope to some day return!

INCREDIBLE!!!!!! NOW TIME FOR SOME SNOW! =)

  • 5 of 5
Our experience was INCREDIBLE at Moosewood Manor, so worth every penny I am absolutely sure of it! This house is immaculate! Everything is so beautiful, well thought out and planned by the staff for our arrival and stay. We enjoyed our time there and the owners and hospitality staff were amazingly helpful with everything! I have never been to a vacation rental that was so well accommodating to the guests =) Thank You! I could have stayed a couple of weeks and would have never run out of adventures to explore and do! The location was absolutely perfect for hiking, the pool and will be for skiing as well! Maybe we will even try some snow shoeing while we are there. I came to the website today again because we enjoyed our stay at your home so much this past summer that I wanted to see about dates for a ski trip with our kids in February and I am excitedly trying to put one together. I would not want to stay anywhere else in Packwood .... I believe your home is the most perfect for winter and or summer excursions. I am looking forward to a long soak in that hot tub after some hopefully wonderful days skiing. Looking forward to seeing you soon! Thanks again for putting so much time and effort into making your guests feel so special and thought of!

WHITE PASS WINTER GETAWAY - AND AN AWESOME PLACE TO STAY

  • 5 of 5
We came out for a long weekend to go cross-country skiing at White Pass. This was my first VRBO rental and it was a definite winner. The cabin is very large and comfortable, with a lovely living and dining area, very complete kitchen (with all the pots, pans, plates and even most spices you could ask for), comfortable rooms, and a big mudroom downstairs to dry out our snowy clothes. We made a couple of hearty meals in the full kitchen, relaxed on the sofa, and played board games on the big dining room table when warm weather and sore muscles nixed our last day of skiing. The house would be great for big groups - we had 4 one night and 7 one night and had plenty of room and sleeping options to spare.
