About Marilly Morton

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 cabin in 2006

Why Marilly Morton chose Packwood

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.

What makes this cabin unique

We spent every weekend for almost a year in Hall Creek Cabin while we built the Rainier View Lodge. We really made it our home away from home. I enjoyed the hot tub under a star studded sky, the song of Hall Creek, wood smoke on the wind and the plethora of passing elk . . . what a combination! It's a great place to dream and build!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time at Hall Creek Cabin! Very sweet place to stay, cozy and warm! We would love to come back soon, or even next year to rent the bigger house (Rainier View Lodge) with a few more friends! I have never seen sooooo much snow in a long time! We were in Packwood last yr. and never saw White Pass like that! Maybe next time we will get more snowboarding in :) Thanks again for the well needed trip!

Excellent deal, clean and comfy

  • 5 of 5
This is our second stay in this home. The owner is professional and prompt- also fair. The first time, we were accidentally directed to the wrong home, and had to move all our stuff out (there was a lot- it was the end of a 6 week trip) to another house. She compensated us by giving a 1/2 night credit. The house is always immaculate and well maintained. Beds are comfortable, kitchen is well stocked. Small hot tub is very comfortable. We also did not have to pay extra when we had a last minute addition to the party. 4 people are covered by the fee. The housekeeper lives on site- a nice bonus. We ran our of garbage bags (there was originally only 1 extra, and we were there for 5 nights), and she promptly gave us more, saving a trip to the store.

Owner's Response: Dear J,
It was a pleasure hosting you again, and I'm glad there was an additional day available, so you could extend your visit. The HomeAway/VRBO payment process makes that a snap.
We trust you enjoyed the Hall Creek Cabin upgrades since your last visit: A/C, new chairs, live-edge trim, just to name a few, and that you will think of us again.

Mt. Rainier hiking trip

  • 4 of 5
Nice location. Woke up to a beautiful view of the mountain at dawn each day. Elk out our front door. Nice to come back to a hot tub at the end of each day's long amazing hike.
Only suggestion would be to try to rewrite the three pages of rules and do not's in a more positive proactive way rather than being so negative. It's a bit off putting and became the subject of many jokes.

Owner's Response: Dear R, Thank you for taking time to post a review. It is awesome the weather allowed views of the mountain during your stay, the elk cooperated with visits and the hot tub afforded relaxation following your daily hikes.
The “three pages of rules” you referenced in your comment is nothing more than an exact copy of the driving directions, access codes and procedures sent prior to all guest’s arrival, and include directions, check-in/check-out instructions and the most important items for which a guest might lose their security deposit.
We still have guests who are not tech savvy, move at the speed of snail mail, don’t have I-phones and print hard copies of said directions (or do and forget them). Others are moving at light speed, outpacing my husband and myself, who fall somewhere forward of the middle. Some guests want more information and to be reminded of expectations in order to feel comfortable about their visit, others want less, and everything in between.
We desire to provide an enjoyable, clean, comfortable, safe environment for guests, yet protect our property, furnishings and surrounding area. If I were to frame expectations as light reading and suggestions versus what they are, I propose they would seldom be followed. I can say, however, I am sorry you felt them “off putting” and glad they eventually becoming a source of joviality.
ONE example of what I’m trying to explain (actual occurrence in June, 2014), regarding grease down the sink: If you live in the city, have a sewer versus a septic system, don’t know there is a difference between the two, and you put grease down the sink . . . it clogs the pipes, destroys the pump, creates a sink hole where raw sewage spills on the property, and can ultimately requires digging up and replacing the entire drain field.
The sink hole was small and we did not have to replace the drain field, but we did have to replace the pump, and clean up the sewage. The final repair was $1,000.00, and that doesn’t include the lost rent to same-day guests, just hours from arrival, nor their annoyance and inconvenience, though I was able to make them new reservations.
We have owned and operated vacation rental houses since June of 2006, and I’ve learned communication can be a minefield. I offer the following as a consolation:
*Communication’s key, for both of us to see
*Each one’s expectations, in reality
*Some need more details, information and such
*Pressure to eliminate, the need to get in touch

Owner's Response: Dear K, Thank you for your quick review response. Yes, 3 volcanoes: Rainier, St. Helens & Adams. I always say, "Disappear into the volcanic triangle!" There is so much to do. We spent yesterday at Takhlakh Lake with a full view of Mt. Adams enjoying volcanoes too. Fun watching you and G following the elk up the hill that first morning.

Owner's Response: Dear DG,
We are so glad you had a relaxing weekend, and found Hall Creek Cabin clean. It was our pleasure to host you. My housekeeper, who lives next door, said your family was an absolute delight.
We hope you can visit again soon. It is fun to see you've visited our Beautiful Northwest Lodging Facebook page for activities on the property as well as around the area.
I would love you to send photos of your children taken with our "neighborhood bear". I would post them on the Facebook page, minus your children's names, for the sake of their privacy.
