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.
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!
Great cabin and hot tub. The mountain was amazing and.the location and privacy was nice.
As the other reviews have stated, it was a perfect weekend away in the mountains to get together with family. Myself, sister, brother-in-law, niece and father really enjoyed the cabin and a weekend of relaxation and the great outdoors. A great spot to unwind with all the amenities we needed, and a beautiful region as well. The owners were very responsive and everything went effortlessly in terms of organizing the stay. Hope to return soon!
Our little family of 4 stayed in this nice and very clean cabin. It was perfect for the price.
We did enjoy the short drive to White Pass and the Pizza place in walking distance.
I did have a few questions once we arrived and the owner was very prompted to respond to my emails.
I would recommend this cabin to anyone who wants to get away from the hustle and bustle and doesn't want to spend a fortune. We will be back for sure
The cabin was nice and clean. The owner is very responsive. It's about 20-25 minutes driving from White Pass. We stayed there during Christmas and the rate is higher than usual since it's holiday. There's no dish washer. No cell phone signal as informed. Luckily we had wifi and the speed was OK. Everything else is good. We enjoyed the stay and would recommend it to other people!
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.
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.
